Transmission Repair State College

Transmission Repair State CollegeAAMCO of State College understands the importance of diagnosing your vehicle's transmission before attempting to fix it, which is why we insist on performing a detailed transmission scan before recommending a repair service. AAMCO's exclusive multi-point Transmission Scan Service ensures that your vehicle receives the services it needs to get back on the road, and nothing more.

To start, your AAMCO certified technician will check the fluid and condition of the transmission fluid, differential fluid, and transfer case fluid. Next, he or she will take your vehicle out for a road test in order to evaluate your transmission's performance and experience any transmission problems firsthand. This road test helps your technician get closer to determining the exact cause of your transmission problem.

After the road test is complete, your vehicle will be placed on a hydraulic lift. The underbody controls will be inspected for any possible cause of the problem external to the transmission, including:

  • Shift linkage or cable
  • Vacuum connections
  • Engine performance
  • Axles and shafts
  • U-joints/CV-joints
  • Fluid retention
  • Wire condition
  • Harness connections
  • Ground connections
  • Engine mounts

These initial diagnostic checks allow our technicians to diagnose many transmission problems. However, if these initial checks do not reveal the cause of your transmission trouble, we will run additional diagnostic tests before recommending a repair.

Computer and Internal Diagnostics:
At AAMCO of State College , it is our policy to only fix what needs fixing. This is why we use advanced diagnostic services to get to the bottom of the problem. Many of today's modern vehicles experience transmission problems simply because the vehicle's on-board computer is sending the wrong signals to the transmission. It is our job to determine if your car's transmission problems are because of a faulty transmission or because of faulty electronics.

Here's how AAMCO's Computer Diagnostic Service works to identify whether electronic parts are affecting your transmission's performance:

  • First, we connect a computer system scanner to your car to retrieve your car's trouble codes. Because a variety of systems could cause driveability issues, all critical computer systems in the vehicle are checked for trouble codes.
  • Your technician then reviews the computer system data against our proprietary AAMCO technical database the most extensive in the car repair industry.
  • Finally, we connect the AAMCO Kwiktest PlusBox to see if the problem is occurring inside or outside of the transmission. AAMCO certified technicians will also inspect the solenoids, sensors, and wiring to determine whether or not they are affecting transmission performance.

After these diagnostic tests are completed, AAMCO certified technicians will know whether an electronic part needs to be replaced. If this is the case, you will receive a detailed description of the services we recommend. This comprehensive diagnostic approach to transmission repair is what sets AAMCO Transmissions and Total Car Care of State College apart from the competition. Visit us today to experience the AAMCO difference for yourself!

For nearly 50 years, AAMCO has been the most trusted name in transmission diagnosis and repair. While our competitors may recommend an expensive transmission repair that your vehicle doesn't need, we will only suggest the repairs necessary to get your vehicle back on the road. In fact, for over half of the vehicles that we service, we find that only a minor repair is required.

If your car's transmission does need to be repaired, we will repair it to the highest standards using high quality parts and components. For this reason, we are confident enough to offer one of the nation's best warranties on all of our transmission services. You can even upgrade to an iron-clad lifetime warranty if you want extra coverage and peace of mind.
