What is a transmission, and what does it do?

A transmission is a complex mechanism that ultimately helps your vehicle move. The engine creates a fast speed of rotation that does not work when starting your vehicle or at very low speeds. This is where the transmission comes in; it utilizes gears to reduce the engine's speed, harnessing its power or torque so that it will help the wheels turn. Contrary to popular belief, a transmission is not an engine; they are two separate mechanisms that work in tandem to make a vehicle do what it does best – move!

At A&J Transmissions, we specialize in transmission work. We do not patch transmissions, we rebuild if possible, and if not, we install new or certified refurbished units. Patching is a temporary fix that can lead to even costlier repairs – we do it right the first time!
