Transmission Repair Services

Transmissions are often the most complicated and most expensive component of you car. A trained, certified and experienced transmission technician should be your first choice for any transmission diagnostics and repairs.

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 one of our convenient locations to talk to the mechanics of AASTRO Transmission & Auto Repair about your transmission problems.

Clutch
Your car's clutch serves the vital function of enabling the engine and gearbox to engage and disengage during gear changes. This process allows the engine's output shaft to keep spinning while relieving pressure on the gears, preventing them from shifting improperly.

After the next gear is smoothly selected, the clutch re-engages the engine and gearbox, restoring forward momentum. Over time, particularly in manual transmission vehicles operated incorrectly, the clutch can wear down, diminishing its effectiveness. A damaged clutch can lead to mid-gear change re-engagements of the engine and gearbox, which can significantly impact your transmission's health.

Four-Wheel Drive Transmission
Four-wheel drive (4x4) vehicles boast differential gears, front and rear axles, and a transfer case connected to the transmission. The maintenance of four-wheel drive vehicles necessitates care for the transfer case, front and rear differentials, and transmission fluids. For top-tier service regarding your four-wheel drive transmission, visit us at 5302 E Speedway Blvd.

Front-Wheel Drive Transmission
In front-wheel drive vehicles, the engine exclusively drives the front wheels. Power flows through the transmission to the final drive, then splits and propels the two front wheels through the drive axles. Front-wheel drive vehicles position the engine, transmission, and related components at the front of the car. For front-wheel drive transmission repairs, rely on AASTRO Transmission & Auto Repair in Tucson, AZ.

Manual Transmission
Manual Transmission vehicles involve the use of a clutch pedal and gear shift to manually change gears, determined by the vehicle's speed. Manual transmissions can encompass two to eight gears and are categorized into front-wheel drive and rear-wheel drive configurations. Typically, manual transmissions require less maintenance than automatic ones.

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 rebuilt, remanufactured, repaired or exchanged with a used transmission. For more information contact AASTRO Transmission & Auto Repair in Tucson, AZ. Our experienced service technicians can help you make the best decision for your vehicle and your wallet.

Transfer Cases
A transfer case is a component of four-wheel drive systems in four-wheel drive and all-wheel drive vehicles. It receives power from the transmission and directs it to both front and rear axles. Transfer cases can be chain-driven in most contemporary vehicles. These components connect to the transmission, front and rear axles through drive shafts to ensure maximum control.

Transmission Service, Diagnose and Repair
The transmission interfaces with key vehicle components and must function optimally for your safety. Transmission services include filter replacements and fluid drainage to prevent transmission damage.

Common transmission issues that may necessitate repairs include shifting problems, slipping, stalling, fluid leakage, and the illumination of the service light. If you suspect your vehicle may require transmission repair, do not hesitate to arrange an appointment with AASTRO Transmission & Auto Repair today.

Transmission Fluid FAQs

How often do you really need to change transmission fluid?
It's important to change your transmission fluid, but the type of transmission you have affects your ideal changing interval. Most cars on the road today have an automatic transmission. If you drive a car with an automatic transmission you need to change your transmission fluid every 60,000 to 100,000 miles. If your car has a manual transmission, it's recommended that you get the transmission fluid changed every 30,000 to 60,000 miles.

What are signs that you need to change your transmission fluid?
The most obvious sign that it is time to change your transmission fluid is a warning light on the dashboard. Other signs may include the car's engine revving when you accelerate or go around corners, difficulty shifting, a chattering noise when you start driving, a slight burning smell or a puddle under your car. Like always, if you are uncertain about a noise, leak or feeling, we encourage you to bring your vehicle to us here at AASTRO Transmission & Auto Repair in Tucson.

Does a car run better after transmission fluid change?
Yes. Changing your car's transmission fluid regularly is a great way to improve fuel efficiency. Your vehicle's transmission will run smoother after changing the fluid, which means your engine will perform better.

What is the average life of a transmission?
Regular fluid changes, filter replacements, and following a proper maintenance schedule are crucial for maximizing transmission life. Neglecting these can significantly shorten its lifespan. Most modern automatic transmissions, with proper maintenance, can last anywhere from 100,000 to 200,000 miles. Manual transmissions typically last longer, often exceeding 250,000 miles with good care.

Which type of transmission lasts the longest?
Opting for a manual transmission means simpler upkeep. They require less frequent servicing than automatics and aren't picky about specific oil types. Cars with stick shifts often enjoy a longer lifespan compared to their automatic siblings of the same model.

On a trip from Sierra Vista to Tucson, our 2007 Chevy Silverado's transmission began overheating in Tucson while we were returning home. We called our usual mechanic in Sierra Vista who advised us to contact AASTRO. It was almost closing time and Jack and Ray advised us to bring it in for a diagnostic the next morning. The next morning after staying overnight in Tucson, we got the truck to the Broadmoor store. The team there took us to a restaurant to await the verdict on our truck. After about 2 1/2 hours we got the bad news that the transmission was beyond repair. The cost of repairs far exceeded the truck's value, so we had to part with it. The AASTRO team (Ray, Jack, Sage, and Manny) did their best to help us get to a car rental agency, so we could return home. The next day Ray helped us find a buyer for the truck and worked to help us through the AZMVD process of reporting the sale. For an emergency situation on our part, we couldn't have asked for any better service!

I had called Aastro Transmission from Jim Click Ford after having my car towed to Jim Click with Transmission and A/C issues. My car sat at Jim Click Ford for several days, without my car being looked at. I went to Jim Click Ford to find out why I had not heard anything. They told me it would probably take at least a week befor they could get to it. They told me the transmission price would be $7,0000, and did not have a price for the A/C. I talked to Ray at Aastro Transmission, he told me that he could have it towed to them and they could get to it immediately. I got a call from Jack the very next morning, and told me they would have to remove the transmission to find out what was failing. Received a call from Ray the operations manager the following day with what failed and the price. Their price was $5745.00 for the transmission and the ac was just some part behind the dash and that would be $473.00. Ray told me he could have it all done in 4 to 5 days depending on parts. They called me 5 days later to let me know my car was done. They also gave me a loaner car why my car was being repaired. Their whole staff was great. This was a very good experience my husband and I felt very comfortable with Aastro and will bring any of our car repairs to them from now on. We also found out they do all vehicle repairs not just Transmissions. We both highly recommend this Aastro Transmission for any of car repairs. They made us feel really good about spending $6000.00 on our car. Thank you Aastro Transmission for such great service.
