Transmission Repair Services

From manual to automatic transmission repair, Luikart's Foreign Car Clinic in Waco, TX 76710 knows how to fix the problem. Our knowledgeable auto experts will diagnose the situation and help you make a decision. Leave the dirty work to us!

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 254-776-6839 to talk to the mechanics of Luikart's Foreign Car Clinic 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 Luikart's Foreign Car Clinic 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 5031 Franklin Ave 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, Luikart's Foreign Car Clinic of Waco, TX 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 Luikart's Foreign Car Clinic, 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.

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 Luikart's Foreign Car Clinic in Waco, TX. Our experienced service technicians can help you make the best decision for your vehicle and your wallet.

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 Luikart's Foreign Car Clinic today.

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 Luikart's Foreign Car Clinic for all your transmission repairs.

  • Had a great experience with Luikart's! I have a 2011 Volvo C30 with over 110K miles and one day the engine started whistling and vibrating badly. Took it over and Ken immediately knew what was wrong and did a great job repairing- no problems since. The price was very fair after a search online. The folks are very friendly as well- would highly recommend to anyone.

  • I love Luikart's. I have always trusted Kenny and his crew, and I haven't been wrong. I drive a 2001 Ford Sport Track with 260,000 miles and still going strong. Sure, it's a great truck, but Kenny's service has had a lot to do with keeping it running smoothly and being fuel-efficient. Thanks guys!

  • I can’t say enough good things about this place. The people at Luikarts are genuine and don’t try to upsell you. They get things done in a timely manner, they use OEM parts, and they are very patient and willing to answer all of your questions. I’ve gotten all of my spark plugs re done here as well as getting my low beam lights replaced and they have made it such a smooth process. HIGHLY RECCOMMEND.

  • My daughter is a Baylor student and we always take her car to Luikarts for oil change and repairs. They are so friendly and make every effort to fix your car. If they can’t then they will tell you what you need and where to get it checked out.

  • Lifesaver! Visiting Waco for a wedding. Our 2011 Volvo started making a terrible noise and the Check Engine Light came on. Closest Volvo dealer in Temple. Found Luikarts with google and walked in when they opened. They were stacked up but offered to try to get to it in the afternoon. Recommended another service provider, but when I called them, they gave me the same story. They had cars lined up and probably could not get to it till afternoon and any repairs probably not till the next week. Called Luikarts back with that information, they said come back down and they would at least try to determine the problem. End result. They got it fixed by 4:00p at a reasonable cost. Highly recommend them.
