Transmission Repair Services

At Superior Auto Service Center, we understand the terror that comes with the words "transmission repair" and we want you to know that there is hope after all. Whether manual or automatic, heavy duty or low range, the transmission is a vital part at the center of your vehicle's drivetrain. Your transmission is instrumental in turning the engine's power into forward movement, so it's not surprising that problems with this important component can cripple your car. The experts at Superior Auto Service Center have years of experience working on transmissions of all types and sizes. When everything grinds to a halt we have the skills to get you moving forward once more.

One of the easiest ways to avoid a large transmission repair bill is to flush the fluid according to the vehicle manufacturer's guidelines. Your transmission contains a lot of intricate moving parts which can deteriorate quickly if not properly lubricated. Superior Auto Service Center's technicians can take a sample of your transmission fluid and determine how long it will be before it's time to renew. When that time comes, we can have you in and out of the shop quickly.

Sometimes our technicians don't get to look at the problem until after something has gone wrong. While this is certainly more serious than a simple transmission fluid change, it doesn't have to spell disaster. At Superior Auto Service Center, our expert technicians can carefully disassemble your transmission, identify any faults, and determine whether repairs can be made or not. We utilize an extensive network of parts suppliers, manufacturer knowledge, and expert repair skills to get your transmission repaired, and your vehicle back on the roads of Frederick, MD.

At its most basic, your car's clutch allows the engine and gearbox to engage and disengage from each other between gear changes. This means that although the engine's output shaft is still spinning, there is no load on the gears which may cause them to shift improperly. Once the next gear is smoothly selected your clutch will re-engage the engine and gearbox, resuming forward momentum. Over time, and especially in improperly operated manual transmission vehicles, the clutch can become worn and less effective at its job. A damaged clutch can allow the engine and gearbox to re-engage mid-gear change, and this can have serious effects on the health of your transmission. Superior Auto Service Center determines the health of your clutch through diagnostic testing as well as test driving. As with a transmission fluid flush, we'll have your car back on the road and your peace of mind stretching for miles.

Another area of our gear-based expertise is your car's differentials. These sit in the middle of your car's axles between the wheels and are vital for a smooth ride. As you turn a corner, the outside wheel has to travel a greater distance than the inside wheel. Without properly functioning differentials, the wheels would turn at the same rate causing your car to vibrate horribly, and struggle to turn whenever you tried to go around a corner. When it comes to examining, diagnosing, and fixing faulty differentials, our experience with transmissions makes Superior Auto Service Center the best place to go in Frederick, MD.

Avoid transmission disaster by coming in and having your transmission, clutch, and differentials checked out today. Call us at 301-682-3533 or visit us in Frederick, MD so we can schedule an appointment to ensure your car is in tip-top shape!

Our competitively priced transmission services include:

Automatic Transmission
Automatic Transmissions shift between gears automatically to optimize driving, and changes gears based on the driver's throttle pedal, vehicle speed, engine speed, and vehicle load. Typical automatic transmissions have 4-5 forward gear ratios, a Reverse, Park, and Neutral gear. Shifting gears occur automatically once the car is in Drive and there is no need for a clutch pedal or gear shift like there is in a Manual Transmission. Automatic transmission repair is complicated based on all the components that make it up, and you need to have any automatic transmission issues properly assessed by auto mechanics. Call 301-682-3533 to talk to the mechanics of Superior Auto Service Center about your transmission problems.

Clutches
There are clutches in both automatic and manual transmission cars, and different types of clutches. When shifting gears, the clutch engages and disengages from the flywheel and transfers the torque through the transmission. Clutches should help your vehicle start and shift gears smoothly. The clutch in your car receives a lot of wear and can eventually wear out. If your clutch begins slipping irregularly or is making noises that are raising suspicion, contact Superior Auto Service Center to see if clutch replacement is necessary.

Four-Wheel Drive Transmission
A four-wheel (4x4) drive vehicle has differential gears, both front and rear axles, and a transfer case attached to the transmission. Four-wheel drive vehicles demand maintenance on the transfer case, front differentials, rear differentials, and transmission fluids. Visit us on 4624 Wedgewood Blvd for service on your four-wheel drive transmission services.

Front-Wheel Drive Transmission
If your vehicle has Front-wheel drive, the engine drives the front wheels only. The power is routed through the transmission to the final drive where it is split and sent to the two front wheels through the drive axles. The engine, transmission, and additional hardware is all located in the front of the car. If you are in need, Superior Auto Service Center of Frederick, MD will gladly repair front-wheel drive transmission vehicles.

Manual Transmission
Driving a vehicle with a Manual Transmission requires using the clutch pedal and gear shift to manually shift gears based on the speed of the vehicle. Manual transmissions have been built with anywhere from two to eight gears. Front-wheel drive and rear-wheel drive are the two main configurations for manual transmissions. Typically, manual transmissions require less maintenance then automatic transmissions. At Superior Auto Service Center, our auto mechanics can diagnose your vehicle and then recommend the transmission repair or transmission service you need to ensure safety and improve the lifetime of your vehicle.

Transfer Cases
A transfer case is a part of a four wheel drive system found in four wheel drive and all wheel drive vehicles. The transfer case receives power from the transmission and sends it to both the front and rear axles. This can be done with a set of gears, but the majority of transfer cases manufactured today are chain driven. The transfer case is connected to the transmission and also to the front and rear axles by means of drive shafts.Trust the automotive experts at Superior Auto Service Center for all your transmission repairs.

Service, Diagnose and Repair
Transmission repair is not something to take lightly. The transmission is connected to key parts of your vehicle and needs to be working properly for your safety. Transmission services include replacing filters and draining fluids to prevent transmission damage. Typical transmission issues that may lead to repair may include shifting issues, slipping, stalling, fluid leaking, and the service light turning on. If you are concerned that you may need transmission repair, don't hesitate to schedule an appointment at Superior Auto Service Center today.

Replacement
In motor vehicles, the transmission usually refers to the gear box, which uses gears and gear trains to transmit speed and tourque from a rotating power source to another device. You can have your car's transmission replaced with a new, rebuilt, remanufactured, repaired or used transmission. For more information contact Superior Auto Service Center in Frederick, MD. Our experienced service technicians can help you make the best decision for your vehicle and your wallet.


What Our Customers Are Saying

I've got 3 cars and I take all of them there when work is needed. These guys are thorough and honest! I've been a customer since 2006.


-Tom L

Fantastic and Honest people that go above and beyond to help you... Can't recommend them enough...


-Lenny A.

The best customer service, transparency and honesty I have ever experienced when working with an auto repair shop. They will be upfront, and go the extra mile. My vehicles will never be serviced elsewhere.


-Daniel K.

I have been with Superior for 3 years with my 2001 Jeep. They do all my work and I am 100% satisfied with they work and I like the way I'm treated, not like a customer but a good friend. They show me what is wrong so I don't have to take their word for it. If I need a ride home or be picked up to get my car they are there for me. I think I'll be with them for many more years.


-Tom R.

Absolutely the Best! Superior and the team is like family, trustworthy, a clean shop and a pleasure to work with. As a single lady, choosing a good mechanic can be daunting. I don't even want to take my truck anywhere else. The guys at Superior drove my vehicle with me and listened for problems. They described the problem to me so that I could really understand, and their service was fast! They will help with regular maintenance so I won't have to worry about missing important upkeep. They really are SUPERIOR!


-Diana O.

Very knowledgeable and honest guys. Was able to get an estimate before the work was even done. Very friendly. Pricing is not the cheapest around town but reasonable (There is also the old adage you get what you pay for). Would recommend and will do business with them again!


-Timothy W.

These guys are awesome! I was treated like family from the minute I walked in the door. They listened to my concerns, gave me a detailed description of what was needed, found other maintenance concerns, gave me a detailed estimate and even told me what could be differed until next time. Integrity comes to mind when I think about my experience. You can trust these folks with your ride. Highly recommended!


-Mac C.

These guys rock. Recently I started my car (while parked in the garage) and it was leaking fuel. Then, died on me. After calling these guys, within two hours they arranged to have the car towed and by that afternoon provided me with an update. The next morning they called with an estimate for the repairs. Ironically, this happened the DAY BEFORE I left for vacation. Not only did they provide amazing service from the very beginning, but they took care of the repairs and the car was ready for pickup upon my return. This gave me peace of mind while I was away. They even came to my house to pick me up to get my car when I returned! Reasonable prices for work performed (replaced fuel filter, PCV valve, etc.) and the car's been running smoothly ever since. So happy with Superior and highly recommend them.


-Nicole R.

I just want to say that Superior Auto Services are awesome! They have a great professional team. They always greet you with a smile and work around your schedule. Usually it is the same day service. One time I was there I was having a problem with my Subaru acting like it wanted to shut off but not all the time. They drove the car 13 miles before it would act up. How many auto services would do that.? Probably zero to one. I highly recommend them to anyone!! I will never take my car anywhere else. Also they were highly recommended to me. Thanks for keeping my Subaru running greatly appreciate everything you have done for me!!!!


-Margaret H.

After living in the Frederick area for several years I was happy to find Superior! I was coming off an experience where getting my oil changed at a high volume oil change business didn't tell me I needed an alignment and had to purchase a new set of tires prematurely. Superior has great customer service. I really appreciate the time they spend explaining repairs and repair options. I appreciate and use their shuttle service. I appreciate that they are a full service shop and can take care of any repairs my cars need. The only small nit I have is that their price on parts can be a bit high. I also appreciate that their price for an oil change/tire rotation is reasonable- that's big for me!


-Ben L.

If I can take my car there..... you can to, because I'm picky.


-Travis P.

Outstanding in every way, couldn't be more pleased, they live up to their name. Will be a loyal customer from now on; highly recommended.


-Diane D.

Dealer service can be frustrating. So when that happens try Superior Auto Service just off of English Muffin Way. They're friendly, courteous and thorough. Reasonable pricing too. Got that at your dealer? Just a thought!


-Mike M.

Excellent shop, highly recommend. I went into the shop on MLK day around 10:30am to inquire about having an aftermarket exhaust I had purchased installed. They said as long as everything lines up and no issues, 1 hour labor, they scheduled me for the next day. Next day I dropped it off in the morning and picked it up at the end of the day, same price I was told 1 hour of labor. These guys did a great job and were able to fit in my exhaust without needing to wait a long time for an appointment. They also have a shuttle service that dropped me off at work and picked me up when the car was ready. I know where I will go when I have other automotive needs, go there with confidence.
