Rockville Transmission Repair Shop
From manual to automatic transmission repair, here at Jacob's Autorama we know how to fix the problem! Our knowledgeable staff of mechanics will can quickly and efficiently diagnose and repair transmission issues on any make and model of car or truck.
Our Transmission Services Include:
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.
An Automatic transmission is comprised of many complicated parts, so if you have a transmission concern we always recommend bringing it by for a free inspection so one of our techs can accurately diagnose any issues you may be having.
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 like all parts, eventually runs out of useful life. If your clutch begins slipping irregularly or is making noises that are raising suspicion, contact us at (301) 340-1488 and we would be happy to offer a free inspection to see if a 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 all of which we service and maintain regularly for hundreds of customers. If you suspect your four-wheel drive vehicle is in need of maintenance on the transfer case, front differentials, rear differentials, or transmission fluid, give us a ring at (301) 340-1488 and we'll gladly take a look with a free estimate..
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. Here at Jacob's Autorama, we service front-wheel drive transmissions in every make and model of vehicle.
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, but when the time comes, our team can quickly diagnose and repair any issue you may be having. As with all of our repairs, we always offer a Free Inspection to to assess any issues.
