"They inspected my transmission, which was detected by another service provider to be slipping. They checked the fluid level and cleanliness, as well as the transmission" itself. They drove the car around and evaluated it thoroughly. It was explained to me that based on their evaluation of exactly when it was slipping, plus based on the fluid itself, that it was not likely to be fixed by just a
fluid exchange. They quoted me $250 if I wanted to go through with the fluid exchange, but also explained in terms I could understand why it was probably not going to change anything. He described what they had detected while driving the vehicle, which matched what I had been detecting myself (although until recently did not realize was a sign of a bad transmission), and why those things meant it was not a
fluid issue. I was told what it would cost if I wanted to replace my transmission. I did not want to spend that kind of money replacing my transmission, since I might just prefer to get a new car. I am going to check if my warranty covers any transmission work, and if it does, I will request to allow me to have the service done at this facility as I feel like I can trust them. Plus I got a referral to this place from another auto service provider that I trust, so that makes me feel even more confident that I found the right place for my transmission needs. I feel like Transfixed explained everything thoroughly to me so I can make the best decision. The gentleman I spoke to was honest and professional. If I get any transmission work done on this car or any other in the future, I will go to this facility for service.

"My 2009
was running fine until the Check Engine & VSC lights appeared on the dashboard which was a great surprise to me and I took the" car to
at 21 Newport Drive in Forest Hill ,
Air.MD
Transmission owner called the Extended Warranty Company for approval to diagnose the problem and approval was given to this shop to examine and diagnose the problem the diagnosis was conducted they reported the findings to the Warranty Company and a Field Inspector came and drove the 2009
and it was discovered their is a transmissions problem. Approval was given to
Transmissions Ins for the repair work to be done. My 2009
was repaired by the transmission experts and within a week the work was completed and the vehicle was given to me As I drove the vehicle I was amazed at the performance of the car, it is driving the same, as the 2015
I was driving while my car was being repaired. I recommend
Transmission , Inc if you are looking for a reliable and honest bunch of professionals who treated me with courtesy,timely feed backs on the work in progress and delivered the vehicle to on me when I needed it, and saved me money on the rental vehicle.
Tansmissions team did an excellent job for me., and I say thanks to
and the crew. Thank You,

I am very pleased with the work that
North Charleston Transmission Shops Provider Name Locked
and his crew did. The price was exactly what he quoted and work done on time. It isn't a large transmission chain so if you are looking just for nice lounge then go to aamco but if you want quality, friendly, experienced service you won't go wrong here. Everything was explained to me in terms I could understand and was kept informed of the work and problems during the process. Office staff is very friendly and

First of all, I would like to state that American was the only service provider that would even attempt to install this in the time frame I needed that work done in. I will commend them for that only... Here's the rest: When I was called, I went and picked up the vehicle. He showed me what he had done for $200.: 1) He did not integrate the new cooler in series with the existing factory one. In essence, this was the only cooler now. 2) There was no phone call to receive my permission to deviate from the original plan. 3) No inline filter was installed. No phone call. 4) :Later that day I found transmission fluid on my garage floor. 5) Subsequent inspection found the cooler installed at an angle in the right lower corner of the AC Condenser. Installation in this position prevented the need to remove the front fascia of the vehicle, which is required to do the job properly. 6) Further inspection showed the 2 hose clamps used to affix the tubing to the fitting were rubbing directly on the AC Condenser cores, in essence an accident waiting to happen. It was at this point that I realized I could not trust
North Charleston Transmission Shops Provider Name Locked
to do the work correctly. First impressions can sometimes be very powerful. I really felt they just performed a job to install the new cooler, as I did request, within a specific time frame, which I did request, but fully ignored any and all technical details and good practices just to make $200 quickly. 7) I went to a local Ford Service Department the next morning asking them to fix the leak and reinstall the new cooler correctly. They refused to touch American's work but would stop the leak by wrapping a piece of rubber tubing around the area in question and holding it in place with tie-wraps.. The cost of this "service": $209. Total for service to date: $409! 8) The goal of adding the new cooler to the system was to realize a reduction of transmission fluid temperature. This leads to longer transmission life and, as I pull an ultralite travel trailer, it's a necessity. 9) That Friday we did take the trailer out for a weekend camping excursion in Southern Indiana. My worst fears were realized when I started seeing temperatures of 215 to 220 degrees for sustained periods, with a high of 228 degrees. This is bad as transmission fluid starts to break down at these temperatures, leading to increased wear. 10) I called a friend in Michigan, who is an automotive expert. We drove to his house, where we again experienced elevated temperatures in the 215 to 220 range. 11) We removed the front fascia and removed the new cooler. It was then realized that

had tried to mate .5" transmission lines on a .375" barbed fittings and use 2 hose clamps on each fitting and tighten as much as possible to seal the leak! This is in no way an appropriate fix for any technical professional to even attempt. Right off the bat he should have made the call to me, described the issue at hand and aborted the installation. He did not... 12) We then went out and acquired the correct .5" to .375" barbed fittings, some additional .5" transmission hose to ensure smooth bends in the routing then proceeded to remount the cooler in an appropriate physical location and inline with the existing factory cooler. 13) We now see temperatures no higher than 195 degrees under load pulling the trailer up the worst hills! This is what we desired from the beginning. 14) Unfortunately, the Ford Service Department saw what had been done to the vehicle, for which I have purchased their best extended warranty plan.
North Charleston Transmission Shops Provider Name Locked
's technical neglect and poor work could end up affecting this warranty of my vehicle. I am sad this has happened but a good friend in Michigan came to the rescue... 15) I will also state I went to the dealer service department with the first request to install an additional cooler but was turned down. This

me to seek other alternatives...

My van was whining and that nasty noise was getting worse. I called m&m, they listened and put a new idler arm something in it. Now it is quiet as a mouse! And they indicated that I needed new o2 sensors and new lift things for the back hatch. They checked the tires and fluids and said it was good to go. Their proactive attitude is very helpful! I highly recommend their auto mechanic services. I will use them regularly for my vehicles.

My 1999
North Charleston Transmission Shops Provider Name Locked
had a transmission leak and the Nissan dealer recommended replacing the transmission altogether - $2,200. The leak, they said, was coming from the shift selector seal - a $0.78 part I discovered. But dealers don't repair transmissions. I found HT Trans on Angie's list and set up a time.
North Charleston Transmission Shops Provider Name Locked
and his team discovered the leak (he had purchased the part in advance) and actually found it was in a different location. They got a replacement part, repaired the leak, cleaned up and it was ready in a couple of hours. All told I went from either a $2,200 tranny replacement to sucking it up and getting a new car to a $75 repair.

was extremely professional, knows what he talking about and did exactly what was needed to get me back on the road. I highly recommend HT Transmissions and would gladly return.

Ten months after work done, transmission went out. Cost me almost $800.00 to get my car home. Turned out to be the same problem that was supposed to of been fixed. The manager of the Congress Street bussiness is rude and condescending. I had to call the Corp office, spoke with

I was called immediately upon their discovery of the problem and was told that they could repair the differential which was in need of a completed rebuild. They told me that the timetable would be approximately 1 week from start to finish. They did exactly what they said they would do and delivered my truck in the timetable they estimated.
