Your car is like you. On occasion, it needs a little love, care, inspection, and even treatment. But instead of the doctor, your vehicle needs the care and attention of a trusted and reliable repair shop to make sure everything is in optimal and working order, including your transmission.
The transmission is what keeps your car running smoothly and efficiently, intelligently shifting gears up and down as needed to help optimize performance, reliability, fuel consumption and propulsion.
But, just like any machine, transmissions need replacement from time to time. Do you notice issues when shifting gears or when speeding up or slowing down? Is your car revving too high or too low or is your engine louder than usual? These may be signs that you need to get into our repair shop sooner rather than later.
If a transmission replacement is needed, NOLA Automotive Repairs’ certified and experienced auto mechanic team can get the job done fast, affordably and have you back on the road again before you know it.
We’ve been serving the community for more than 19 years, and our trustworthy, certified auto technicians can diagnose your car’s problem and find a solution you can count on.
While some cars or vehicles may need transmission replacement sooner than others, all vehicles will eventually need a transmission tune-up. That’s the bad news. The good news is that there are a number of signs you can keep watch for that indicate your transmission may need some help.
Here are the symptoms to look for when determining if you need a professional transmission repair or any of our recommended New Orleans transmission services:
Unusual noises: If your car starts clunking, whining or buzzing, especially when in neutral, it could be a problem with the transmission.
Burning odor: If you smell burning transmission fluid, even if you can’t see any fluid, it’s a bad sign. This smell could also be from the gears overheating.
Leakage: If you see red fluid that’s cloudy or clear leaking outside your car, that is a sign you need to take your car to the shop now.
Problems with gears: Any irregularities you notice with your gears, either difficulty shifting them or grinding sounds emanating from them, is a sign that the transmission may need some work.
Your transmission controls the gears in your car. It shifts the gears (both up and down) which allows you to speed up and slow down in a controlled and efficient manner.
Your transmission is largely responsible for controlling the amount of power delivered to your wheels, thus affecting everything from acceleration to handling and traction control. It’s important to maintain your transmission by changing the fluid every so often, but after a certain number of miles, you may be in need of transmission replacement services.
Failure to properly address transmission issues early on could lead to additional damage to other engine parts, eventually leaving you stranded on the road.
Bringing in your car at the first sign of issues can help save you big on repair and replacement costs down the road.
Our team of talented automotive technicians will do everything we can to help save you on repair or replacement costs. In the event that repairs or a rebuild is an option, we’ll make sure you have all the information you need to make the right choice.
When repair and rebuilds are beyond the scope of damage, or in the event that a rebuild may cost more or be less reliable than replacement options, our team can help.
Transmission replacement is a complicated process that requires certified, trustworthy experts, like those at NOLA Automotive Repairs. We care about your vehicle as much as you do, and will make sure it is treated with respect.

<blockquote“When you own an 18 year old Trailblazer, there are few things more helpful in life than finding a great mechanic. My experience yesterday was just phenomenal! My water pump needed to be replaced and I contacted the owner online and got a response right away. I called to set up the repair expecting the car to be in the shop for at least a day, and after dropping it off, it was ready less than two hours later! (…) The staff couldn’t have been nicer!” – Scott K.
