We have a team of certified technicians who are committed to rebuilding your transmission back to its glory days. Your vehicle’s transmission is responsible for changing your engine’s gears and transferring that power to your wheels, and as a result, your vehicle moves forward. Essentially, your transmission is built upon hundreds of components designed to work together in order to make your vehicle move. Keeping your transmission maintained is one of the most important things you can do for your car. Our specialized mechanics have the capability of working on manual and automatic transmissions. Repairing it can be somewhat costly, replacing it gets expensive, but to fit within your budget we can also rebuild your current transmission, too.

  • Your car needs service? Let us handle it!

    If you own a vehicle than it is important to keep it in optimal condition. While major repairs and replacements for certain auto repair services can be expensive, the best way to avoid those hefty costs is with routine maintenance. Oil changes, transmission flushes, swapping out your brake fluid, and other minor maintenance services can prolong the life of your vehicle. Other benefits of following a routine car maintenance schedule include:

    • This helps keep your engine running smoothly and decreases the chance of breaking down on the side of the road
    • It helps keep your car and all of its passengers safe and protected
    • Maintains the value of your car
    • Helps cut down future repair costs

    While DIY projects help save money, having experienced and certified technicians, like the ones we have at SS Transmission, are the best way to ensure each job is done correctly. From oil changes to brake pad replacements, our auto repair shop provides comprehensive auto repair services in Decatur, Illinois.
