They shouldn't hear you coming Your transmission works with your engine to generate your vehicle's movement. While the engine fuels the movement, the transmission propels it—meaning if your transmission isn't in good condition you won't be going very far.
Though some of the indications of your transmission not operating properly are subtle, others are easy to identify—especially if you are familiar with your vehicle and how it sounds and feels.
Give us a call if you have noticed indications of potential transmission problems such as:
- Grinding or screeching when accelerating or braking
- Shaking or a feeling of instability when driving
- A burning smell
- Slipping gears that cause your vehicle to "jump" out of your desired gear
- Leaking of transmission fluid
- The check engine light has come on

How your differential keeps you moving The power generated in your vehicle makes several stops before actually rotating your wheels. One of these stops is your differential.
This system is responsible for slowing the rotational speed within the transmission so it can accurately and safely spin your vehicle's wheels. The differential also aims power at the individual driven wheels, allowing them to rotate at different speeds.
Your differential ensures the wheels move when and how you need them to in order to move your vehicle forward and back, but also get it safely through turns without putting undue strain on the vehicle.
Let us keep you safe with high quality differential work You can't trust just anyone with your differential. You need to choose a team that understands the nuances of the system and is able to quickly identify problems and provide quality solutions.
If you notice any of these issues, you may have a problem with your differential that should be addressed as soon as possible to prevent a frightening and potentially dangerous situation:
- A whirring sound when decelerating
- A whining sound when accelerating
- A banging sound when trying to turn
- Vibration when driving, particularly one that increases the faster you are moving
- Clunking or banging that occurs at regular intervals
Don't risk your differential failing. Let us help you take another step in keeping your vehicle under your control.

What do all those lights mean? Your vehicle knows when something isn't going the way it is supposed to – even if you can't tell. One of the ways it lets you know is with the indicator lights on your dash. You can probably recognize the fuel light — but what do those other lights mean?
The service indicator lights on your dash are meant to signal you to problems in your vehicle. If you see one pop on, you know there may be something wrong—but that is all you know. The light doesn't tell you exactly what is wrong.
Some problems with your vehicle have other, more telling indications such as strange sounds, strange smells, changes in performance or leaking fluids. If you don't see any of these signs, however, you may be baffled by the light.
Whether you have an idea of what may be wrong with your vehicle or have suddenly noticed a warning light, bring your vehicle in to us. You don't need to be able to diagnose the problem with your car—that's our job.
Relax–we'll figure out what is wrong When something isn't right with your vehicle, don't feel like you need to figure it out on your own. You don't even need a lot of information for us to go on. Just let us know what you have noticed and we will figure it out from there.
Advanced diagnostic techniques allow us to thoroughly evaluate your vehicle to find problems so we can provide reliable solutions.
