Transmission Repair in Newport News, VA

Our Approach

It’s the job of the transmission to transfer power from the engine to the drive wheels. Transmission problems sound like an immediate death sentence for you car, but they’re not. At B&L automotive, we can break out the defibrillator and revive your old vehicle. All it takes is a quality transmission repair.

Experienced and Friendly Technicians Dedicated to Quality

Our technicians have decades of transmission repair experience under their belts. Whether you’ve got a Chevy Suburban with a slipping automatic transmission, or a Honda Civic that’s in need of clutch replacement – we do it all. Some of the transmission types we repair include:

  • Automatic Transmissions
  • Manual Transmissions
  • Semi-automatic Transmissions (paddle shifters, DSG, etc.)
  • CVT transmissions

Thorough inspections for accurate diagnosis

Modern transmissions are extremely complex with all kinds of electronics onboard. That’s why proper inspection is so important. What appears to be a transmission problem may really only be a bad sensor or low fluid level. Through systematic diagnosis, our technicians will find your problem and fix it right the first time.

Comprehensive and Honest Overviews

Even Einstein’s hair would have fallen out trying to understand late model transmissions (that’s if he wasn’t bald to begin with). Fortunately, here at B&L we know transmissions and we are happy to share our knowledge. We will help you understand the transmission in your vehicle, as well as any needed repairs.

No-Pressure Repair Recommendations

Transmission repairs require a lot of consideration. We understand that, which is why we never pressure our customers into a repair. Instead, we make recommendations based on what’s best for you, your car and your budget.

Repairs Performed with Quality Parts

Repairing a transmission can be time consuming and expensive. That’s why we use only OEM and OEM approved parts in our transmission repairs. This ensures the job is done right, the first time.
