Transmission Repair Services

At JayBees Auto Service, 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 JayBees Auto Service 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. JayBees Auto Service'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 JayBees Auto Service, 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 Tucson, AZ.

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. JayBees Auto Service 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 JayBees Auto Service the best place to go in Tucson, AZ.

Avoid transmission disaster by coming in and having your transmission, clutch, and differentials checked out today. Call us at 520-790-6035 or visit us in Tucson, AZ so we can schedule an appointment to ensure your car is in tip-top shape!

Our competitively priced transmission services include:

Automatic Transmission
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 520-790-6035 to talk to the mechanics of JayBees Auto Service about your transmission problems.

Clutches
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 JayBees Auto Service 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 5070 E 22nd St 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, JayBees Auto Service of Tucson, AZ will gladly repair front-wheel drive transmission vehicles.

Manual Transmission
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 JayBees Auto Service, 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.

Transfer Cases
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 JayBees Auto Service 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 JayBees Auto Service today.

Replacement
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. You can have your car's transmission replaced with a new, rebuilt, remanufactured, repaired or used transmission. For more information contact JayBees Auto Service in Tucson, AZ. Our experienced service technicians can help you make the best decision for your vehicle and your wallet.


What Our Customers Are Saying

My family has been going to JayBees for decades (yes, decades), and we trust them implicitly. (Woman owned and operated if that makes a difference to you.)


-Jonathan F.

Great people here...!!! With the best customer service. Always a pleasure seeing them.


-Peggy R.

The people at JayBees are incredibly helpful and honest. As a woman, I'm used to being talked down to because it's assumed I won't understand. Shelly specifically always makes sure I understand the problems and the options for repair. They also have a courtesy shuttle so I can get a ride to my friend's house and don't have to pay for another ride option. I will never go anywhere else to get my car fixed.


-Sara T.

Love JayBees! Honest and reliable. Highly recommend.


-Michele T.

Shelly, Jacqui, and Doug....you're the BEST!!


-Eddie C.

Skilled mechanics, courteous.


-Thom M.

Jacqui and Doug are both amazing. Most trustworthy auto mechanic I've found. Time and time again they prove this to me.


-Joe F.

The people I've had contact with are very friendly, and my husband trusts their work.


-Lynn C.

Great service and honest prices.


-Quinny M.

Fair prices, and they do the little extra things to make sure your car or truck is fixed and safe.


-Bill G.

Great service and an amazing staff. They very patiently walked me through the steps they took to diagnose, troubleshoot and resolve my car's issues.


-Todd M.

Very happy. Came in for oil change. They checked over the whole vehicle for me and found a couple of minor repairs needed so I had them do a couple of them, and will return for the others in the near future. My second visit to them. Last fall they repaired a faulty engine control computer for me, but this was a difficult undertaking because Chrysler-Fiat (Dodge Owners) don't make that computer anymore. They found a company back east that remanufactures old out-of-production car computers and got the job done.


-Ken

My car wouldn't start and had to be towed to JayBees. I feared it was something like an alternator or battery problem but was surprised to learn it was a defective key. The courteous and knowledgeable staff always make me feel I am in good hands. Everyone I have referred to JayBees has thanked me. Wow, 30 years in the business. That says a lot.


-Patty D.

Jacqui and Shelly are such experts with car service, and I trust them completely. They have proven to go above and beyond to explain their findings about the work needed and not needed for my car. I am so appreciative of all of their time and effort to explain and assess everything for me. They are honest, do quality work, and are reliable - what more do you need?


-Michele J.

I love JayBees! The staff is so friendly and honest. I always feel comfortable spending money on the repairs that they recommend, because I know that they have my best interest in mind. We had quite a few repairs this visit and Shelly went through every single thing with me to make sure that I knew what I was paying for. I am super happy with the work. Thank you!


-Amy C.

Very thorough and honest place. Will be the place we are going to in Tucson for any problems with our cars from now on.


-Terry & Thomas

Routine oil change and recommended maintenance items. Friendly and knowledgeable staff and technicians. To be in business 30+ years means they are doing things RIGHT. Everyone I have referred to Jaybees has thanked me.


-Patrice P.

Replaced the broken driver's inside door handle, plus had an oil change/service & vehicle inspection/evaluation. Have gone to JayBees for years. Excellent service. Ultra-competent. Super honest. Really good people to do business with!


-J L

The personnel and mechanics at JayBees are very efficient and work in a timely manner. I was able to get an oil change and have the car travel-ready within a matter of hours. The mechanics are very thorough and check all the little details to make the car roadworthy. If they find a detail that needs extra work, they immediately contact you to let you know and have you give them the okay. I appreciate this extra effort.


-Judith S.

JayBees is always friendly, courteous and they do an excellent job. I've been going to them for 25 years, and I don?t trust anyone else.


-Cindy F.

Jacqui and Shelly and all the people here are awesome. I'd never go anywhere else.


-Anita R.

We were recommended to JayBees by some friends, and we were not disappointed. Not only did they expertly repair the problem, but they also gave the vehicle an overall service inspection at no extra charge. Their mechanics gave us several recommendations for future service needs, but no one pressured us into having things fixed right then and there. We will definitely take our vehicles back to JayBees for maintenance and repairs.


-Nancy B.

By taking the wife's Murano to JayBees instead of the dealer, we saved well over $1000.00 in parts. They fixed the electric system and also got the electric motor to work, which we had been quoted almost a thousand dollars parts and labor. Plus the fix on the electric system that had caused the car not to start saved us another several hundred. Plus they treated my wife like a person instead of like a dummy and making her call and ask her husband. They explained and showed her what was needed to be done.


-Bill G.

Great central location. Good people who want the best for your automobile!


-TK H.

Completely trust JayBees. They have serviced my car many times and have even left with no bill two times! Turns out it was not an issue, and they never tried to pull anything on me. Great customer service, knowledgeable and have a really cute office cat.


-Kelly Anne M.

This is a shop that has a passion to fix the root problem, not simply pull things off and replace them until they happen upon a solution. Don't hesitate to take your car to JayBees. I had been to three shops, spent thousands of dollars on repairs, and the folks at JayBees sorted through all the potential issues and solved the problem. I have a lot of confidence in their work.


-Byron B.

If you need your car repaired use JayBees. Their staff is friendly and treated me well. When you need a repair done quickly AND fixed right the first time, they are the shop to use. I love that they have women in their shop who actually know cars and how to explain my situation to me.
