Transmission Repair Services

From manual to automatic transmission repair, Albany Light Truck & Car Repair in Albany, NY 12205 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 518-437-0304 to talk to the mechanics of Albany Light Truck & Car 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 Albany Light Truck & Car 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 6 Anderson Drive 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, Albany Light Truck & Car Repair of Albany, NY 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 Albany Light Truck & Car 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 Albany Light Truck & Car Repair for all your transmission repairs.

  • The staff is always kind, courteous, and honest. Even when I'm sitting in the waiting area and hear them being normal humans with other, they are just genuinely good people. The guys (and apparently gal now) you have working the desk make me feel at ease in a place where I'm at their mercy - going to the mechanic isn't daunting there. And though I know nothing about cars, I trust your mechanics implicitly. It doesn't feel like a business, it is more like I'm paying a friend to look at my car for me.

Great service!!!!
    -Larry R.

  • I like that you stay open later now. I can finish my work day and still get my car serviced. I appreciate all the times you have given me rides to work. I like that Vinny or Brain will call and let me know what needs to be fixed, give me a estimated estimate. I like that you fix the problem the first time and I don't have to come back over and over again. I like that I can trust my car to your service techs.
    -Rita P.

  • Friendly, efficient service. Everything thoroughly explained.
    -Dan R.

  • Very opened communication with knowledgeable folks who provided me with options of solutions and not just a list of problems. Took their time to have my best interest in mind and keep me informed of any concerns they found. only thing I would of liked improved would of been more advertising it took me having a clutch issue to find such a good shop, wish I found/heard of you all sooner.
