At Tigard SUV and Auto Repair, Inc., we understand the terror that comes with the words "transmission repair" and we want you to know that there is hope after all. Whether manual or automatic, heavy duty or low range, the transmission is a vital part at the center of your vehicle's drivetrain. Your transmission is instrumental in turning the engine's power into forward movement, so it's not surprising that problems with this important component can cripple your car. The experts at Tigard SUV and Auto Repair, Inc. have years of experience working on transmissions of all types and sizes. When everything grinds to a halt we have the skills to get you moving forward once more.
One of the easiest ways to avoid a large transmission repair bill is to flush the fluid according to the vehicle manufacturer's guidelines. Your transmission contains a lot of intricate moving parts which can deteriorate quickly if not properly lubricated. Tigard SUV and Auto Repair, Inc.'s technicians can take a sample of your transmission fluid and determine how long it will be before it's time to renew. When that time comes, we can have you in and out of the shop quickly.
Sometimes our technicians don't get to look at the problem until after something has gone wrong. While this is certainly more serious than a simple transmission fluid change, it doesn't have to spell disaster. At Tigard SUV and Auto Repair, Inc., our expert technicians can carefully disassemble your transmission, identify any faults, and determine whether repairs can be made or not. We utilize an extensive network of parts suppliers, manufacturer knowledge, and expert repair skills to get your transmission repaired, and your vehicle back on the roads of Tigard, OR.
At its most basic, your car's clutch allows the engine and gearbox to engage and disengage from each other between gear changes. This means that although the engine's output shaft is still spinning, there is no load on the gears which may cause them to shift improperly. Once the next gear is smoothly selected your clutch will re-engage the engine and gearbox, resuming forward momentum. Over time, and especially in improperly operated manual transmission vehicles, the clutch can become worn and less effective at its job. A damaged clutch can allow the engine and gearbox to re-engage mid-gear change, and this can have serious effects on the health of your transmission. Tigard SUV and Auto Repair, Inc. determines the health of your clutch through diagnostic testing as well as test driving. As with a transmission fluid flush, we'll have your car back on the road and your peace of mind stretching for miles.
Another area of our gear-based expertise is your car's differentials. These sit in the middle of your car's axles between the wheels and are vital for a smooth ride. As you turn a corner, the outside wheel has to travel a greater distance than the inside wheel. Without properly functioning differentials, the wheels would turn at the same rate causing your car to vibrate horribly, and struggle to turn whenever you tried to go around a corner. When it comes to examining, diagnosing, and fixing faulty differentials, our experience with transmissions makes Tigard SUV and Auto Repair, Inc. the best place to go in Tigard, OR.
Avoid transmission disaster by coming in and having your transmission, clutch, and differentials checked out today. Call us at 503-590-9798 or visit us in Tigard, OR so we can schedule an appointment to ensure your car is in tip-top shape!
Our competitively priced transmission services include:
Automatic Transmissions shift between gears automatically to optimize driving, and changes gears based on the driver's throttle pedal, vehicle speed, engine speed, and vehicle load. Typical automatic transmissions have 4-5 forward gear ratios, a Reverse, Park, and Neutral gear. Shifting gears occur automatically once the car is in Drive and there is no need for a clutch pedal or gear shift like there is in a Manual Transmission. Automatic transmission repair is complicated based on all the components that make it up, and you need to have any automatic transmission issues properly assessed by auto mechanics. Call 503-590-9798 to talk to the mechanics of Tigard SUV and Auto Repair, Inc. about your transmission problems.
There are clutches in both automatic and manual transmission cars, and different types of clutches. When shifting gears, the clutch engages and disengages from the flywheel and transfers the torque through the transmission. Clutches should help your vehicle start and shift gears smoothly. The clutch in your car receives a lot of wear and can eventually wear out. If your clutch begins slipping irregularly or is making noises that are raising suspicion, contact Tigard SUV and Auto Repair, Inc. to see if clutch replacement is necessary.
Four-Wheel Drive Transmission
A four-wheel (4x4) drive vehicle has differential gears, both front and rear axles, and a transfer case attached to the transmission. Four-wheel drive vehicles demand maintenance on the transfer case, front differentials, rear differentials, and transmission fluids. Visit us on 12394 SW Scholls Ferry Rd for service on your four-wheel drive transmission services.
Front-Wheel Drive Transmission
If your vehicle has Front-wheel drive, the engine drives the front wheels only. The power is routed through the transmission to the final drive where it is split and sent to the two front wheels through the drive axles. The engine, transmission, and additional hardware is all located in the front of the car. If you are in need, Tigard SUV and Auto Repair, Inc. of Tigard, OR will gladly repair front-wheel drive transmission vehicles.
Driving a vehicle with a Manual Transmission requires using the clutch pedal and gear shift to manually shift gears based on the speed of the vehicle. Manual transmissions have been built with anywhere from two to eight gears. Front-wheel drive and rear-wheel drive are the two main configurations for manual transmissions. Typically, manual transmissions require less maintenance then automatic transmissions. At Tigard SUV and Auto Repair, Inc., our auto mechanics can diagnose your vehicle and then recommend the transmission repair or transmission service you need to ensure safety and improve the lifetime of your vehicle.
A transfer case is a part of a four wheel drive system found in four wheel drive and all wheel drive vehicles. The transfer case receives power from the transmission and sends it to both the front and rear axles. This can be done with a set of gears, but the majority of transfer cases manufactured today are chain driven. The transfer case is connected to the transmission and also to the front and rear axles by means of drive shafts.Trust the automotive experts at Tigard SUV and Auto Repair, Inc. for all your transmission repairs.
Service, Diagnose and Repair
Transmission repair is not something to take lightly. The transmission is connected to key parts of your vehicle and needs to be working properly for your safety. Transmission services include replacing filters and draining fluids to prevent transmission damage. Typical transmission issues that may lead to repair may include shifting issues, slipping, stalling, fluid leaking, and the service light turning on. If you are concerned that you may need transmission repair, don't hesitate to schedule an appointment at Tigard SUV and Auto Repair, Inc. today.
In motor vehicles, the transmission usually refers to the gear box, which uses gears and gear trains to transmit speed and tourque from a rotating power source to another device.

First visit to Tigard SUV auto shop and very impressed by quality of service and accommodations. I dropped in without an appointment and they took care of me right away. They were able to identify the issue right away and recommended necessary repairs as well as future recommended maintenance on my vehicle. Overall a 5 stars for my experience and timing of repairs. Now I believe I have found myself a neighborhood auto repair place I can count on.
Honest and dependable service, I have taken vehicles here for almost 10 years. Great service and they educate you about issues and keep you informed. A+
Arguably the best auto repair shop in the State of Oregon. Honesty and Integrity is the hallmark of Tigard Auto Repair. I trust this repair facility with my 2002 Mitsubishi Montero, 2010 Toyota Camry, and 2008 Ford Mustang and as soon as my 2015 Cadillac SRX comes off Factory warranty, they will be taking care of that auto too. Thank you.
Great service, did awesome work on my brakes and rotors. Didn't feel pressured at all to spend money on extra recommendations for the car, even for fixes that were semi-urgent. Super satisfied with the experience and will definitely return there for all future work on my car.
Tigard SUV came recommended and they went above and beyond. I appreciate them keeping me in the loop on every step of the process. I?ll be going back time and again for any work and I can?t wait to see the friendly people at Tigard SUV.
I've used Tigard SUV and auto repair for several years now and have always been treated well and fairly. They've stood by their service and worked with me to solve problems especially on my older 4wd geo tracker. They appreciate how much the rig means to me especially as a tow vehicle behind my RV. Because of this, I trusted them to put in a new engine, clutch, and other new parts and am so happy to have it back ready to go another 200,000 miles! Thanks!
As always, I get the best customer seevice from Daniel and Chris over at Tigard SUV & Auto. They're also so good & patient to answer all my questions. They always have a loaner car and everytime I leave my vehicle with them, it comes back to me better than when I left it with them. I truly appreciate thier advice and willingness to help me keep my vehicle in great running order! Thank you!!!
I was advised by Chris Dillon when I made the appointment to bring my SUV in early at 0730 on Friday (when the shop opens) so they would have the best chance to fix my AC issue (compressor failure) before the weekend. I'm glad I followed his advice because Tigard SUV delivered!
So helpful and friendly. I feel very confident they will get the job done great and amazing customer service. No pressure and give you all options. Very happy!!!
Courteous, professional, and knowledgeable staff provide quality service in timely manner for a fair price without overselling additional services. The free loaner car is an added PLUS and convenience that no other shop I've used in the past 30 years has offered. Thanks!!
Going on a road trip? I recently was at Tigard SUV for an oil change and to add new tires to my Honda SUV. On my way home, the ease in handling, smoothness of the ride and reduced noise level was really amazing. Thanks Tigard SUV for keeping us safe and ready for the next big adventure! :-)
Tigard SUV were honest and straight forward in their work and communication. This was my first experience with this shop and will definitely return.
Always great service. Prompt, friendly, to the point. I?ve been going here for years now and don?t plan on going anywhere else! Thanks guys!
The service is as professional as it can get. I was treated with respect and fully informed of how action would be taken in the service of my car. While clearly busy with several customers, I felt I too was being attended to with care and thoughtfulness. Excellent business.
My first time taking my Honda Civic in and I can only say the service was excellent. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. I just found my permanent auto shop.
Efficient and, more importantly, honest. No pressure to do additional repairs. Great records of my vehicle...always up to date.
