At Harry's 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 Harry's 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. Harry's 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 Harry's 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 Jackson, MI.

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. Harry's 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 Harry's Auto Service Center the best place to go in Jackson, MI.

Avoid transmission disaster by coming in and having your transmission, clutch, and differentials checked out today. Call us at 517-789-5700 or visit us in Jackson, MI 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 517-789-5700 to talk to the mechanics of Harry's 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 Harry's 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 2850 Airport Road 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, Harry's Auto Service Center of Jackson, MI 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 Harry's 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.

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 Harry's Auto Service Center in Jackson, MI. Our experienced service technicians can help you make the best decision for your vehicle and your wallet.

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 Harry's Auto Service Center today.

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 Harry's Auto Service Center for all your transmission repairs.

Absolutely the most phenomenal service. I had an estimate of $1600 to fix the power steering & because of a lot of rust underneath, a few other things that went with it. When I picked up the car, my bill was only $1400, they didnt have to change the serpentine belt. So that saved me about $200. Its not the first time my final bill was less than the estimate. And they fixed a ($400 job) problem with my exhaust,no charge to me. I have been taking my car there for a long time & I will never take it anywhere else.

They are honest and in the price range or less than other places.

I see a few comments about female treatment in the thread here, so I'll chime in. I certainly will never let my wife bring in her car without me and here is why. First, they have way more tools than me, what are they trying to do, make me look like an inferior male?! As a matter of a fact, one day I brought my turd of an import in because of some coolant system issues and had them take a peek at it. They didn't have the necessary tools for the job, so do you know what they did? They bought the expensive tool to ensure the job was done correctly!! Ok, great, cater to my family's every need, again making me look like a bum! Secondly, they treat her with dignity and respect, again, what are they trying to do, make me look like a pig?? Then, they are always in communication with us and are spot on when it comes to the dollar amount. Now they are pulling honesty card making my wife question how truthful I am with her. And lastly, a majority of these fellas are dashingly handsome, especially that Paul guy. Like, I think one day in an internal debate to choose between a modeling career or to become a mechanic, it came down to a coin toss, heads he's a mechanic, tails he's a model...luckily for me...it was heads. All this being said, I fear if my wife goes in without me, she won't come back home. So, just to be safe, I will take my car in to get all of this amazing treatment, because us guys deserve to be pampered every now and then too. I seriously can't trust a mechanic any further than I could throw him, but these fellas here are the only one that I would ever take my vehicle to. It isn't just me, my whole family feels the same way too! Don't get me started on how well they treat my mother...because I am getting sick of hearing "Dustin I wish Dylan was my son instead of you, he knows how to treat a mother!"

I had my muffler fixed and welded in December. They told me when I left that the weld may break because it was so cold outside and new welds sometimes do that. They also said that if that happened to bring it back and they would fix it for free. Well it did break and when I called they told me bring it in. It was fixed in less than an hour and did not cost a thing. They were awesome and I will be recommending Harry's to all my friends and family!
