Transmission Repair Services

Transmission Repair Services, Thousand Oaks, CA

At Tyler's Auto Repair, 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 Tyler's Auto Repair 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. Tyler's Auto Repair'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 Tyler's Auto Repair, 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 Thousand Oaks, CA.

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. Tyler's Auto Repair 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 Tyler's Auto Repair the best place to go in Thousand Oaks, CA.

Avoid transmission disaster by coming in and having your transmission, clutch, and differentials checked out today. Call us at 805-497-4019 or visit us in Thousand Oaks, CA 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 805-497-4019 to talk to the mechanics of Tyler's Auto Repair 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 Tyler's Auto Repair 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 67 Taylor Ct Unit C 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, Tyler's Auto Repair of Thousand Oaks, CA 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 Tyler's Auto Repair, 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 Tyler's Auto Repair in Thousand Oaks, CA. 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 Tyler's Auto Repair 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 Tyler's Auto Repair for all your transmission repairs.

What Our Customers Are Saying

Best repair shop in town. Gary diagnosed the problem in 5 minutes. Dealership told me I would have to leave the vehicle for 3 hours. The dealership's high pressure Service Manager telling me it would probably be $800-$900. Tyler's fixed the simple problem for only $229!! Runs perfect now! Thanks Gary! I would give them a DEFINITE recommend!

Highly recommend this shop for auto repair and serves. Gary is an honest, fair and friendly guy that takes care of his customers. Won't go anywhere else after my experience.

reviewicon

Three words: efficient, dedicated and affordable. Tyler's Auto is at the end of the cul-de-sac. The Mechanic had a great diagnostic approach to resolving my car issues. He test drove it at least 5 times until he felt all the issues were addressed and the tweaks were made. Just needed new spark plugs, I was done in 2 hours. I'll go back to them.

reviewicon

I went and got a smog done on my car and failed at another shop. They tried to get me to bring my car in the very next day for the necessary repairs which they said would cost over 400.00 plus dollars. I called a couple of other smog places to find out what I could do, they advised me to take the car to a smog technician for a diagnostic test to find out why it could have failed. Tyler's Automotive performed my diagnostic test. They were very thorough and found nothing wrong with my car. They referred me to a smog test only center, where my car passed with flying colors. Thank you Tyler for giving me such great service and saving me from a huge car repair bill. I have found my new go to guy for any future repair issues.

The guys at Tyler's are great! Especially Gary. He was super friendly and honest about everything he did.Their prices are extremely fair and they don't try to sell you anything you don't need. Best mechanic experience I've ever had. GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE!! I will never take my car anywhere else. I only trust Gary and the other guys at Tyler's! If you go here you won't be sorry!

reviewicon

Gary and crew are the best! They are honest, hard-working, and really nice. Half the time I go in not knowing at all what is wrong, trying my best to describe what is happening through absurd noises like "eeeeek". And they always find the problem and fix it quickly. The last time I went in, they said I needed a new something or other but instead of ordering a new one and installing it which would have been $300, he said first he was going to try taking apart and cleaning my old one. That fixed the problem and he didn't even charge me for it. Such great guys.

reviewicon

Tyler's Auto has provided us with excellent service for our Chrysler and Cadillac over the last three years. We went to to them when we first moved to the area and they have been so great to work with the whole time. Now we are relocating again and it will be sad to leave such great, dependable, fair and just nice mechanics. We highly recommend them!!!

reviewicon

Tyler's is great! Super honest service! They always give you all the facts and you know exactly what you're paying for. Used to go to dealer and pay three times as much. Not anymore since I found Tyler's!

reviewicon

I love this place. These guys are so honest! It's daunting to find a good mechanic and often times I've felt that my lack of knowledge about cars has set me up to get ripped off...that will absolutely NOT happen here. Good, honest work for a very fair price! Love them!

reviewicon

Tyler's is very honest and pragmatic about what needs to be done vs what is optional. We've been taking our Honda and Toyota there for years. Much more honest than the dealers, and good quality.

reviewicon

I was having trouble with AC on my truck. Several places "recharged" the system but would stop making cold air after a few weeks. A friend recommended Tyler's so I went there about a month ago. They did a great job, fixed the AC system and no trouble since. Very fair price as well. Nice, courteous team. Called back when they said they would. Give them a try.

reviewicon

Great guys, years of experience, they know exactly what they're doing. Brothers Gary and Dave run the place and have been helping me with any issues on my car for years. They do anything from diagnosing an odd sound, to complete engine replacements. I always recommend them to anyone in need.
