Transmission Repairs & Replacement in Danville & Bloomsburg, PA

Your transmission is an essential part of your engine operation. Over time, it runs under immense stress and heat, which may cause excessive wear and tear over time. The transmission system also uses a fluid vital to protecting an assortment of moving parts in your engine. If you need transmission service or a new transmission, let the experts at George Automotive Services help you get your vehicle back on the road in no time.

The role that the transmission plays in your vehicle is simple yet critical. The transmission is all about the amount of engine power that is given off at a particular speed.

When you are driving, your transmission (when automatic) will change gears as your speed increases. When this occurs, the amount of power from your engine that goes to your vehicle will fluctuate. When you have a manual transmission, you can control when the power changes by switching gears, which is critical to ensuring a smooth ride and no unnecessary strain on the engine.

Transmission Services

There are some key transmission services that professionals can provide. You must consider transmission service as part of routine maintenance for your vehicle. Just like you change the oil of your car, you also want to be sure your transmission is in quality shape.

Part of what goes into ensuring your transmission is well taken care of is flushing out the old transmission fluid and changing it with new fluid. The changing of the fluid in your transmission is critical, as it lubricates the different moving parts inside of your vehicle. The fluid also acts as a coolant, which is another important role.

Beyond just the standard transmission fluid, there are other more in-depth inspections of your transmission. These can include an examination of the transmission pump or pan, as well as replacing or cleaning the filter of the transmission. Finally, if a repair is necessary, you may want to install a new pan gasket.

Signs of Trouble With Transmission

What are some of the common signs of trouble when it comes to your transmission? There will be times when you can just tell that your transmission is going to begin giving you trouble.

One of the most clear indicators of transmission issues includes grinding noises underneath the car. When the engine is running, if the grinding is occurring, you will want to have the transmission looked at. When you sense trouble shifting gears, or slippage between gears, it is also a sign that your transmission fluid could be contaminated. Finally, if your car is not moving as it should when you hit the gas, it could be transmission trouble as well.

When all else fails, it could just be that you need your transmission replaced. There will be instances when a full replacement of your transmission will be necessary. You can leave it up to a team of professionals like our crew at George Automotive Services to assess the damage done to the vehicle and plan out the best strategy to get your transmission running in a top-tier fashion.

Transmission Fluid Service

Like any other fluid in your vehicle, the transmission fluid can get dirty and clogged with dust and other debris. You may also have a leak that’s causing your system to lose transmission fluid. The fluid protects and provides lubrication for parts like the shafts, drums, clutch pack, and bearings. For most vehicles, you should have your transmission fluid replaced every 25 to 30,000 miles. The chemistry in the transmission fluid can break down, causing it to be ineffective.

A quality transmission fluid service will breathe new life into your car. We will carefully empty all transmission fluid and check for any possible leaks. Then, we’ll add new fluid that matches your unique vehicle’s specifications. The new fluid will help to protect your engine from excess heat buildup and other potentially serious problems. You should consider including regular transmission fluid changes in your preventative maintenance routine.


In some cases, your transmission may need to be repaired or rebuilt entirely. A repair usually requires a simple installation of new parts that have become damaged or worn. This should restore your car’s transmission to good operating condition and will get you back on the road at a fairly reasonable cost. We service transmissions but we do not do re-builds.
