Whether your transmission needs routine maintenance or there is severe repair work to be done, we are a fully qualifided transmission shop that you can trust to get the job done.

Transmission Diagnostics

  • As vehicle operating systems become more complex and as technology advances, it is important for transmission repair shops to have the right equipment and training when diagnosing a vehicle. General Transmission is the best place to go to for transmission repair if you are in Reno, Sparks, Carson City or other nearby areas. We take our diagnostics the extra mile to ensure that the correct repair is being done. With our dedication and experience in the industry, we are the best place for transmission repairs. Not to mention that we we can save you time and money.

Transmission & Powertrain Service

  • At General Transmission, we take pride in doing things right and that even includes transmission and gear train service. We are different from other transmission shops in Reno and Sparks because you'll never find a transmission flush machine in our shop. Our transmission repair shop will take the time to perform the service methodically by dropping the pan, inspecting the pan, replacing the filter, and inserting the highest grade of synthetic transmission fluid. Beyond that, we check your complete powertrain and ensure in the end you have a safe, reliable vehicle.

Transmission Repairs

  • Not everything is rebuild and overhaul. If diagnosed and researched correctly, some transmissions can avoid major expenses by simple repairs. With our dedication in training and proper equipment, we can go further than other general auto shops or even outdated transmission repair shops in Reno or Sparks. A simple service, computer reflash, valve body upgrade/valve body replacement, etc. can fix your vehicle as where non specialized transmission shops will go for complete transmission replacement.

Transmission Rebuild & Remanufactured Transmissions

  • We take pride in our builds and they start with our employees. Our rebuilder and techs are some of the best in Nevada. Even with heavy duty transmission rebuilds, we are always up-to-date in training and eager to tackle new challenges as vehicles get more complex. When we rebuild your transmission, we just don’t replace it. Instead, our transmission repair shop will thoroughly take apart and inspect where and what the failure is. From there, all the parts are cleaned with our high pressurized tank and all of the soft and worn-out hard parts are replaced with new or better parts. When we rebuild, we use only the highest quality of parts and update known components in the transmission, meaning you will get a better shifting and longer lasting transmission, even with a normal or a heavy duty transmission rebuild.
  • We have a standard 2 Year and/or 24,000 mile warranty on our rebuilds, with an optional 3 year/100k nationwide warranty.

Heavy Duty Transmission Rebuilds

  • Whether it’s for fun or for work, we can build your transmission to meet your needs. If you are towing and/or using it for heavy use, we can rebuild with stronger components, change shift patterns, boost pressure hydraulically, and much much more for your specialized heavy duty transmission rebuild.

Manual Transmission

  • That’s right. We do manual transmissions too! As they become more extinct, we still see them come through our shops. We are a transmission repair shop that is committed to the power train industry and are always up-to-date on our builds, tools and equipment, and suppliers. From Subarus to Dodge Diesels, we've got you covered.

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.

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.

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.

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..

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+

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.
