Manual Transmission Replacement
Steve's Auto Repair and Tire
While manual transmissions are becoming rarer, car companies like Ford, GM, Chrysler and Honda are still using them for their vehicles. Manual transmissions are typically very sturdy, but things can go wrong and when they do, you need an automotive shop that knows what they‘re doing.
At Steve‘s Auto Repair & Tire, we‘re proud to use Jasper Engines for our customers‘ manual transmission services.
Let‘s talk about why Jasper Engines stands out against their competitors for manual transmission work. A lot of other companies out there that handle manual transmissions are rebuilders, while Jasper Engines is a re-manufacturer, which makes a huge difference.
When a rebuilder is working on a manual transmission they‘ll disassemble it, pinpoint the problem, replace the part that‘s causing the problem and then put it back together, before handing the vehicle off to the customer. With Jasper Engines, they will disassemble the entire transmission, inspect every part, and look throughout for wear and issues. And any part that shows signs of wear is automatically replaced.
Another difference between a rebuilder and Jasper Engines is that any machining areas, like bearings, are replaced during re-manufacturing, but that is not done by a rebuilder.
Jasper Engines even goes that extra mile to work with parts manufacturers – OEM for car companies and aftermarket – to redesign parts that are consistently having problems and failure, so that when you get your manual transmission back it‘s an upgraded version of the original.
One problem that Jasper sees regularly is cone-style bearing failures on Ford manual transmissions. While a rebuilder will determine the failure and just replace the bearings on your manual transmission, Jasper Engines will go that extra step and replace the bearings with a type that‘s compatible and far more reliable.
So if your manual transmission is in need of repair, then Jasper Engines is the right company for you. Our staff at Steve‘s Auto Repair & Tire are happy to answer any questions you may have about our transmission services and Jasper Engines.
