Schedule Your Transmission Replacement In Elgin, IL

Whether your car is sitting on the side of the road or gives you a real fight to get to work every day, it is time for a transmission replacement. Bring it in to the Service Center at McGrath Honda, and we have the bays, tools, and trained technicians available to get your ride back together with a quality OEM transmission built for your make and model.

Coordinating Power and Control

Your transmission works to marry the power produced by your engine and send it to your drive wheels. A manual transmission is operated using the clutch and a stick shift. Your automatic transmission uses hydraulics to change gears. If your transmission fails, your car will not be able to move. Replacing a transmission on front-wheel and all-wheel drive vehicles is more complicated compared to a rear-wheel-drive truck or car as it usually requires the removal of the engine.

Signs that It Is Time for a New Transmission

Your transmission may be ready to be replaced when you notice some of these symptoms while driving around the South Elgin and Bartlett neighborhoods.

  • Slamming into gear
  • Failure to shift
  • Transmission leaks
  • Burning smell while on the move
  • Engine warning light
  • Slipping out of gear

You will want to work with your technician to determine if your transmission can be repaired or requires complete replacement. Replacement is recommended on older vehicles with high mileage or has been through a serious accident.

We always use factory-authorized and OEM parts, so your vehicle will be ready to roll for many more thousands of miles when we are done.
