Powertrain Repairs General Transmission

NV Transmission and Powertrain Specialists

A vehicle's powertrain is an essential part and contains everything that enables the vehicle to move, including the transmission, but not the engine of the vehicle. Because the powertrain is so important, regular powertrain maintenance and service is a necessary component of problem preventative vehicle ownership.

A number of things can cause a powertrain to malfunction or fail. General Transmission has the experts with the knowledge and experience to fully investigate the powertrain and accurately assess the solution for the problem. General Transmission specializes in transmission repair and rebuilds but we are also experts in powertrain repairs and service.

Transfer Case Repairs–4-Wheel Drive Service Specialists

  • The differential and transfer case are two of the least understood vehicle components. For many drivers, it’s out of sight and out of mind. They don’t realize how important it’s been until they’re forced to repair it. General Transmission in Reno, NV wants drivers to know that preventive maintenance services for your vehicle’s differential will go a long way. This routine maintenance will protect you from suffering costly repairs and breakdowns. Our team knows how to maintain your vehicle’s differentials and transfer case with clean oil for gear lubrication, and thorough inspections to remove debris, sludge, and old oil.

Quality Differential and Case Repair Maintenance

  • Your vehicle’s differential is designed to keep your wheels spinning at the correct rate around every corner. As you make a turn, your outside tires rotate at a slightly slower speed, therefore the differential must channel power to wheels to keep them spinning at the appropriate rate. Your vehicle’s differential sits on the axle between the two tires along the drive shaft. Whether you’re driving a front wheel drive vehicle, rear wheel drive, or four wheel drive, the differential manages to channel power to the slower turning wheels. The differential will be sitting between the front tires on the axle for front wheel drive vehicles. For rear wheel drive vehicles, it will sit on the rear axle between the rear tires. On a four wheel drive vehicle, you will have two differentials, and a transfer case will manage to channel power to both differentials.

Thorough Differential Inspection–Checking and Resealing Leaks

  • The transfer case is found in vehicles with four wheel drive. It channels power to the differential, but it does it for two different axles, affecting four different tires. If you’re driving a four-wheel drive, your transfer case requires the same level of maintenance that your differentials do. Make sure you have an experienced professional monitoring your four wheel drive’s differential performance. There are typically no causes for concern, but depending on the use of your four wheel drive, mishaps and malfunctions can become a problem. Allow the experts at General Transmission to inspect your vehicle’s differential and transfer case. The cost of replacing a differential is much more than a routine inspection or maintenance service. All it takes is a quick check, and a quick thumbs up to be on the safe side. It cannot be stressed enough how important your vehicle’s differential and transfer case services are.

Schedule Your Differential and Transfer Case Service

  • Today is as good a day as any to make sure your vehicle’s differential is operating appropriately. Most drivers are forced to think about their differential and transfer case, but it usually too late then. The repairs are an absolute necessity, and all it took was a little preventive maintenance. Give us a call today, so we can make sure you and your vehicle’s differential is on our radar. Schedule a time that works best for you, and we’ll make sure you’re in and out in no time. We know how to make sure you’re never left without a high-performance vehicle.

Had my transmission rebuilt at General transmission for my Isuzu trooper last month and was very satisfied. The owner Pete and his crew are great! They are honest, friendly,&knowledgeable! Pete will give you the best quotes in town and most important is they are a A.T.R.A. shop.This accreditation is a MUST in shopping for transmission work.

Came in stressed with a Volvo that has been attempting to bankrupt me this past year, and Chuck and Pete really took care of me. They did the work in only about 4 business days, and they charged me quite a bit less than a competitor had offered. Would do business with again! A+

I brought my 2008 minivan in for diagnosis. I was prepared for the worst. The owner Pete inspected the car and after about 20 min or so he said it was a minor fix and recommender a transmission flush too. (Which has never been done.)About 380$ total worth of work. I haven't had the work done yet but I plan to and will update, also The shop is nice and seems very secure if you plan on leaving your car. The woman at the desk was very nice and helpful as was the owner. I would recommend.

Pete went out of his way to help me find out what was wrong with my truck while on vacation. It became clear it wasn't the transmission but a wiring harness when he connected it to the scope. I went to the GMC BUICK DEALERSHIP & A1 Transmission shops and wasn't treated very well.

My Jetta was having issues in second gear that would cause my car to suddenly (and dangerously) decelerate the first few minutes after starting and driving it after it. Peter was very helpful in diagnosing the problem (valve body) and explaining what was going wrong. Now my car has the responsiveness that it used to have! I highly recommend this shop for its friendly, fast service.

Fantastic service!!!! Pete truly went above and beyond. My transmission went out when I was camping 20 miles out side of Truckee Ca. Pete came out on a Sunday and picked up my truck. And to top it off I picked up my truck on Tuesday. I can not thank Pete and his crew enough. They are fast ,friendly, and fair. I will recommend them to everyone i know. Thank you..
