Transmission Repair Services

From manual to automatic transmission repair, Al Dean's Auto Repair in Auburn Hills, MI 48326 knows how to fix the problem. Our knowledgeable auto experts will diagnose the situation and help you make a decision. Leave the dirty work to us!

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 248-852-3095 to talk to the mechanics of Al Dean'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 Al Dean'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 3191 Auburn Rd 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, Al Dean's Auto Repair of Auburn Hills, MI 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 Al Dean'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.

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 Al Dean's Auto Repair for all your transmission repairs.

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 Al Dean's Auto Repair today.

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 Al Dean's Auto Repair in Auburn Hills, MI. Our experienced service technicians can help you make the best decision for your vehicle and your wallet.

What People Say About Us


  • -Torri B.

    I can't say enough great words about this experience from start to finish!! This garage is absolutely wonderful - caring, affordable and speedy. The epitome of customer service! Well done Al Dean's, you have an A++ approval from me!! Thank you for your great vibes, a great start to this beautiful day!!


  • -Collin L.

    These guys are great. I've had more than a few repairs done here, and never had any problems with the cost or the service. In most cases I already had the replacement part, and the labor charge was very reasonable for the level of quality from the mechanic. After a few visits, the boss recognizes me and still waves anytime I see him out front. This is a shop that I refer everyone in town to. Even if you're in southern Rochester or east side Pontiac, it's worth the trip to have the job done right.


  • -Sarah A.

    I was beyond pleased with my experience at Al Dean's Auto Repair. My father had recommended this place to me when I needed my bumper repaired and the service I was provided was above and beyond. The owner was very respectful and kind and took extra time out of his day explaining things about my car to me. Along with this, the prices were very reasonable compared to other services I have looked into. I would definitely recommend this place!


  • -Danielle R.

    My stepfather has been coming here for years and I have never come because it is a 30 minute drive. I called for prices and they blew the other places out of the water. The work is quality and prices are great. I will be coming here from now on and referring everyone I know!


  • -Shageng C.

    Chuck is wonderful man, very friendly and caring. Saved me thousand of dollar comparing to the dealers' quote. Both my car and my Dad's are rolling great on the road. I will highly recommending this auto shop to my friends for the professional skill and honesty.


  • -Ross H.

    The work on my vehicle was completed quickly, correctly, and at a fair price. Also, Chuck is hilarious. I will be bringing my vehicle back here for future maintenance and repairs.


  • -Jennifer O.

    Very prompt and friendly service. The owner and the mechanics were very accommodating. My brakes started grinding and I had to get them done in between my classes since they closed when my last class started. They gave me a ride back to school to wait so I wasn't stranded and they got the job done before they told me. Very reasonable pricing as well. I will return when needed.


  • -Preston P.

    They were recommended to me by a family friend. I needed a quick fix and they got the job done. I will be coming back to these great local guys!


  • -Aashish K.

    Very professional and friendly people. Gave me free advice on replacing the tires for my BMW when I approached them for a flat tire, told me there was no life left in the tire anymore and there was no point in getting that fixed. Any other placed would have charged me $20 for the flat tire and not inform me about it not being good anymore.


  • -Christopher S.

    Impressive work done by awesome people. A wheel bearing failed on my vehicle when I was interviewing in the area with my wife and kids. Aldeans put in the extra effort to take care of us and get us back on the road home that day. Amazing turn around time in my mind. They were also very personable and took time to explain what happened and what to expect. Thank you!


  • -Anthony L.

    Had a work van break down on a tech in the area and had it towed to these guys. They could have got the van done that day by 6 but I needed it done faster. I brought them the part and they put it on for me. Price was reasonable and work was done fast. Nice people and understood my situation completely.


  • -Jerry C.

    Chuck is a true gentleman, very knowledgeable and will show you the repairs that need to be made on your vehicle and best of all he's very affordable. I highly recommend Al Dean?s!


  • -Kristi K.

    I was shopping at Farm Boy next door to Al Dean's Auto today when my car wouldn't start. Not knowing what the problem was, I walked over to Al Dean's to see if anyone could help. Al was so helpful and professional. He walked over with me, pointed out the problems he saw with the battery (which I had just bought in May 2016 from the dealer) and helped me to jump start it. He advised I go back to them, since it should be under warranty. I was so impressed with his knowledge and kindness. He took the time to show me the problem, and advised how to fix it. I will definitely return the next time I need an automotive repair, he earned a new customer today!


  • -Jenise B.

    My husband's truck broke down on 75 when he was heading North for the weekend. It was towed to Al Dean's Auto and checked out on Saturday. After some usual codes were detected and diagnostic tests run, the mechanics found fried fuses, particularly the anti theft fuse causing the truck to shut off. These guys are simply the best and I can't thank them enough for their quick and excellent work! I would recommend them to anyone who needs work done -- even if it's towed in!


  • -John Y.

    Went in for brakes after reading reviews. They provided a courtesy ride, communicated while they had my car, texted pics of what they saw, and fixed the problem promptly for a fair price. Friendly and trustworthy service.


  • -Lars J.

    Chuck was extremely accommodating and more than efficient when addressing my vehicle's needs. Not only was he professional, Chuck was an all around nice guy and exemplified customer service. I'll definitely go back for my other service needs!


  • -Bejone M.

    Chuck is a great guy who was willing to listen carefully and provide me with information about my problem. He was very personable and honest. When I brought my car in he explained all of the problems that were wrong with my car and was very straightforward about whether or not my engine could be fixed with the little money I had on hand. Most other places would take your money and then let you be disappointed later. The info he gave allowed me to stop dumping money into a car I had been struggling to maintain with worry and sell it to get something reliable instead. I got some basic maintenance done for a great price and lightning fast service. Come here if you want to work with someone who cares about community and actually helping people!


  • -Gail B.

    They know autos and are respectable. They show damaged parts and explain what's needed to return the vehicle to good working condition. They get my recommendation!


  • -M. Ant

    Thanks Chuck!!! I was directed to his shop when I had a slow leak in left rear tire. Chuck explained that he is not equipped to change tires, but he took the time to examine the problem and found the nail embedded in the tire. He referred me to an excellent shop to have the work done at a honest and fair price. When you have out of state plates and your family with you, facing a long drive home, some honest help is the best you can hope for. Thanks again Chuck!!!!
