The easiest way to maintain peak performance and fuel economy is to provide regular transmission maintenance for your vehicle.

Transmission Replacement
In motor vehicles, the transmission usually refers to the gear box, which uses gears and gear trains to transmit speed and torque 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 General Auto Repair in Altamonte Springs, FL. Our experienced service technicians can help you make the best decision for your vehicle and your wallet.

Transmission Repair
Our services include transmission repair on both manual and automatic transmissions. The first step in getting you back on the road is assessing your transmission to accurately determine the source of the problem. In some cases, we are able to repair your transmission simply with adjustments, replacing external seals, or replacing accessible parts. To have this done by specialists, call 407-682-5755 to talk to the mechanics of General Auto Repair today.

Transmission Repair and Rebuild
When it comes to automatic transmission repair, there are several options: buying a new one, buying a remanufactured one or having yours rebuilt. Each of the above options has its own share of advantages and disadvantages. Of the three options, rebuilt transmissions are the most economical. A rebuilt transmission involves removing the transmission from the car, disassembling it, replacing worn out parts, reassembling it, and then reinstalling it. To have this done by specialists, call 407-682-5755 to talk to the mechanics of General Auto Repair today.

Transmission Flush
Although most manufacturers recommend a transmission flush every 30,000 miles or every two years, some symptoms may indicate that you need a transmission flush sooner. Some of the symptoms that indicate that your car needs a transmission flush sooner are: transmission grinding or strange noises, problems shifting gears, slipping gears, surging of the car, and delay in vehicle movement. Flushing the used fluid from the transmission washes away tiny particles of dirt, clutch material, and metal shavings. For all your transmission flush needs, call 407-682-5755 or visit General Auto Repair today - we are transmission experts.

Timing Belt
A timing belt is a part of your car's internal combustion engine. The belt synchronizes the camshaft and the crankshaft rotation so that the engine valves open and close at the correct timings. Also, the belt prevents the piston from striking the valves in an interference engine. A timing Belt is a rubber belt that usually features teeth on the inside surface, while a timing chain is a metal roller chain. Most cars we drive now have timing belts instead of timing chains and gears. Although different manufacturers have their recommended mileage, you need to have your car's timing belt checked regularly. To have it checked by experts, contact General Auto Repair today.

Cylinder Head
A cylinder head is the closed end of a cylinder (located in a car's engine block). It sits above the cylinder block, closing the top of the cylinder and forming the combustion chamber. The cylinder head coordinates airflow in and out of the engine. Since the cylinder head's chief function is to seal the cylinders properly, insufficient compression results in the car being difficult to drive. To have your cylinder head checked and repaired, talk to General Auto Repair's cylinder head repair and reconditioning specialists today.

Cylinder Block
A cylinder block is the powerhouse for the motor vehicle. The solid cast car part houses the cylinders and their components (gaskets, valves, and seals) inside a lubricated and cooled crankcase. Since it is one of the most important parts of your car, the block is designed to be extremely strong and sturdy. Although strong and sturdy, the block is susceptible to failure resulting in a vehicle that won't start. Cracked blocks, porous blocks, core plug, or freeze plug failure are some of the problems facing cylinder blocks. Call 407-682-5755 to talk to the mechanics of General Auto Repair about your cylinder block problems.

Testimonials

  • Rich has done a great job on all my vehicles over the last 10 years. Trusted and does honest work.
    -James P.

  • I've brought my truck in a few times, all for different reasons (brakes, cooling system, transmission, and standard maintenance). These guys know what they're doing and they get it done fast! General Auto is the only place I trust for auto repairs.
    -Jeff L.

  • Very practical, great service, great follow through, great prices.
    -Brian

  • General Auto Repair has done outstanding work for me for years. I have brought a number of vehicles there and they always provide great service and a full explanation of what needs to be done and what I can wait on before going to the expense to fix it. They are efficient, timely, cost-effective, trustworthy, and super helpful. I brought my son's 15-year-old Tacoma in before he drove it cross country to ensure everything was working and ready for the trip. They went out of their way to work with my timing, the repairs/maintenance was what I expected, and they were super informative. I had family member's vehicle that had been neglected so I called General and they had the vehicle towed then repaired at a very reasonable rate. They took a difficult situation and handled it for me. I highly recommend them.
    -Leslie C.

  • Very professional and prices are always reasonable. From my first visit, I could tell that they would not be trying to take advantage of me and it shows that they invest in their loyal customers, I take both of my cars to get repairs and oil changes for three years. I have never had one complaint.
    -Caleb

  • Honest advice, fair prices, excellent service is what comes to mind regarding this shop. We have been customers for a couple of years and extremely happy with the work performed on our cars.

They do fantastic work with the most reasonable honest cost. I live over 35 miles away from the shop and wouldn't think twice driving there to have work done to my car. Do yourself a favor and don't waste any time taking your car anywhere else. I don't ever write reviews but I just had to this time!

    -Linda

  • I have been with Rich for 30 years. He is very aware that I need my truck for my lawn service and will have it back to me asap. Last month I got in my truck at 8 in the morning and it was shaking like crazy. Spur of the moment call, he had it back to me by one. My vehicles are always repaired because he gets in and test drives and makes sure. And he has no problem with bringing it back if I am not satisfied. I only have 4 cars in my family and trust Rich and his mechanics with all of them. Sometimes in life you just have to trust somebody. Your mechanic would be a good person to trust.
    -Ray

  • I have been going to General Auto for about 18 years and have always been treated with respect and honest evaluations. I have both my company vehicles and personal vehicles serviced here because I know that Rich and his crew are fair and honest. It may not always be the cheapest in town but I'll pay more for the quality, honesty and respect I get as a customer before going anywhere else!
