  • The friendly manner, the informed answers to my questions, the larger waiting area, the coffee availability, and the efficiency with which my vehicle was serviced made for a very pleasant experience.

  • I depend on Vehicle Repair Center to keep my Saturn running great. With over 200K on it now, I'm not worried about replacing it (maybe passing it on to one of my grandchildren.) Love that car wash at every service, too - including a nice clean windshield!
    -Jane P.
  • You always make it very easy to make sure that my car is serviced at the appropriate time. Getting the reminder in the mail is a huge help. Whenever I come in for service I am greeted with a warm welcome and you are always ready to answer any questions I might have. Washing my car and leaving it spotless is just an added bonus that I have not seen anywhere else. Above all, the quality of service is excellent and I would recommend anyone to bring their car to your shop for service.
    -Paul T.
  • I was greeted right away when I entered the office and was taken exactly on time at the time of my appointment. I was in for a oil treatment and was told about other things that needed to be done. I was ok with that and asked if they could do it while I was there and they said they could. I was very satisfied with the work that was done on my car.

Transmission Repair Services

From manual to automatic transmission repair, Vehicle Repair Center of Western Mass in West Springfield, MA 01089 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 413-306-3193 to talk to the mechanics of Vehicle Repair Center of Western Mass 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 Vehicle Repair Center of Western Mass 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 414 Park Street 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, Vehicle Repair Center of Western Mass of West Springfield, MA 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 Vehicle Repair Center of Western Mass, 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 Vehicle Repair Center of Western Mass 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 Vehicle Repair Center of Western Mass 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.
