Transmission Repair Services

From manual to automatic transmission repair, Empire Automotive in Port St Lucie, FL 34984 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 772-370-8564 to talk to the mechanics of Empire 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 Empire 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 1935 SW South Macedo Blvd 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, Empire Automotive of Port St Lucie, FL 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 Empire 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 Empire 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 Empire 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 Empire Automotive in Port St Lucie, FL. Our experienced service technicians can help you make the best decision for your vehicle and your wallet.

    John is honest & affordable. I don't take my SUV anywhere else but to him since I found him.


  • -Alisa C.

    I had my car serviced here last week. The axle on my car broke, and I have to say this was the best experience ever! John is an honest mechanic. As a woman, you get nervous thinking that you'll be taken advantage of. That was not the case at Empire Automotive. John figured out my problem quickly and had my car ready in a day! His prices beat anyone in labor, and he didn't try to sell me services I didn't need. If you are looking for a reliable, honest and reasonably priced mechanic, look no further. Thank you John!

    John was wonderful and fair! He kept within the time frame promised which is important to me with two small kids. I would highly recommend him to everyone!


  • -Keith H.

    John is a great, honest mechanic. He won't lie to you and try to get you to do a bunch of repairs you don't need at outrageous prices. I took my car to a few places before a family member recommended Empire. When I took it to John, he told me exactly what the one problem was, and his price to fix it was about half of what others were quoting. I will always bring my car to him from now on, from the smallest thing like an oil change, to whatever other problems may come. Very highly recommend Empire. You won't be dissatisfied.
