Transmission Repair Services

From manual to automatic transmission repair, G.B.E. Performance Automotive in Galveston, TX 77550 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 409-762-7551 to talk to the mechanics of G.B.E. Performance Automotive 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 G.B.E. Performance Automotive 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 3502 Broadway Ave J 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, G.B.E. Performance Automotive of Galveston, 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 G.B.E. Performance Automotive, 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 G.B.E. Performance Automotive 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 G.B.E. Performance Automotive 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 G.B.E. Performance Automotive in Galveston, TX. Our experienced service technicians can help you make the best decision for your vehicle and your wallet.

What People Say About Us


  • -Benton S.

    Took our Jeep Liberty to GBE for an oil leak. Turns out there was no oil leak, the oil filter was just not screwed on tight enough. They tightened the oil filter NO CHARGE!!! Other work I've had done was timely and at a fair price.


  • -John M.

    We had the low tire pressure light come on today, so we stopped in to have them check it out. We had a nail reMoved from one tire, and replaced the two back ones before we made our trip here, so we needed to get it checked out. One of the guys working came out to greet us and after I told him the story, he had us pull in to a stall. He checked the pressure in all 4 and one was a little low. He explained that even only being 3# low would trigger the the light. He aired us up and said "don't worry about it" when I offered to pay him. These guys had a very clean shop, and whenever I'm back down this way, I'll be going to them for any repair work


  • -Angela B.

    I've used GBE for several years. These guys are always honest and helpful. I have never had one issue with this shop. Most importantly, quote matched my final price and repair was done in a timely manner . When I picked my vehicle up one of the guys informed me that I really needed to take my car in for my air bag recall. He explained to me some things he had witnessed with faulty airbags. I made that appointment next!! It's nice that people go out of their way to point you in the right direction. I've had , oil changes, inspections, oxygen sensor replaced, ac compressor and starter all replaced with GBE. Prices are always fair. Support a local business! !

    Every single time I have brought my or my wife's vehicle here, they fixed whatever the problem was and never once tried to overcharge or overfix a thing. This places has always treated me with complete respect and this is the only place that I trust my wife will be able to drop off a vehicle and be treated with the utmost respect on the island. I am happy to have found this mechanic.

    The guys here were great. I had to drop my car off because I had car trouble on my way to the hospital. They were able to get it back to me the next day. The price was also good as it compared favorably with what others had paid on line. The guys here seem to do good work, charge a fair price, and run an all around good business.
