Automatic Transmission

Automated gear shifting in automatic transmissions optimizes driving by adjusting gears according to the driver’s throttle pedal, vehicle speed, engine speed, and vehicle load. These transmissions typically have 4-10 forward gear ratios, as well as reverse, park, and neutral gears, and gear shifting occurs automatically once the car is in drive. Unlike manual transmissions, there is no need for a clutch pedal or gear shift. Automatic transmission repair is a complex task due to the various components involved, and it’s important to have any issues assessed by professional auto technicians. If you’re experiencing transmission problems, contact Downtown Auto Service at 920-437-1665 to speak with an advisor.

Manual Transmission

When driving a vehicle with a manual transmission, the driver must manually shift gears using the clutch pedal and gear shifter, the gear selected depends on the vehicle’s speed. Manual transmissions can be designed with four to six gears. In general, manual transmissions require less maintenance compared to automatic transmissions. However, it’s still important to have your manual transmission regularly inspected by skilled auto mechanics to ensure its safety and longevity.

CVT Transmission

Many vehicles today come with a Constantly Variable Transmission (CVT). These transmissions work similarly to a snowmobile or UTV transmission. They have an infinitely variable gear ratio allowing the engine to always be at the optimum RPM for power and efficiency. These transmissions require routine maintenance of fluid to prevent internal wear and premature failure.


If needed, our certified technicians can replace your vehicle’s transmission with a new, rebuilt, remanufactured, repaired, or used transmission. For further details, get in touch with Downtown Auto Service. Our knowledgeable service technicians can assist you in making the optimal choice for your vehicle and budget.


Manual and transmission cars contain clutches, which come in various types. When changing gears, the clutch connects and separates from the flywheel, transmitting torque through the transmission. Clutches are meant to enable your vehicle to start and shift gears smoothly. However, the clutch in your car undergoes a significant amount of wear and may eventually become worn out. If you notice irregular slipping or suspicious noises from your clutch, it may be time to consider clutch replacement. Contact Downtown Auto Service to have your clutch assessed by our team of experts.

Four-Wheel Drive Transmission

A 4×4 vehicle features differential gears, front and rear axles, and a transfer case connected to the transmission. To keep your 4×4 vehicle in top shape, it’s essential to perform regular maintenance on the transfer case, front and rear differentials, and transmission fluids. For comprehensive four-wheel drive transmission services, visit us at 434 E Walnut Street.

Front-Wheel Drive Transmission

Front-wheel drive vehicles have their engines connected to the front wheels, with power transmitted through the transaxle to the final drive. The final drive then distributes the power through the drive axles to the two front wheels. All of the related hardware, including the engine and transmission, are located in the front of the car. Should you require any repairs for your front-wheel drive transmission vehicle, you can rely on the expertise of Downtown Auto Service.

Transfer Cases

The transfer case is a crucial component of the four-wheel-drive system, present in both four-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive vehicles. It receives power from the transmission and distributes it to both the front and rear axles, often using a set of gears or chains. The transfer case is linked to both the transmission and front and rear axles via drive shafts. When it comes to transfer case repairs, you can rely on the expertise of the professionals at Downtown Auto Service.

Service, Diagnose and Repair

It’s important not to underestimate the significance of transmission repair. Given its connection to crucial parts of your vehicle, a properly functioning transmission is essential for your safety. Transmission services involve replacing filters and draining fluids to prevent internal damage and premature failure. Common transmission issues that may necessitate repair include shifting problems, slipping, stalling, fluid leaks, and service lights. If you suspect that your vehicle may require transmission repair, schedule an appointment with Downtown Auto Service today.
