Gearbox & Transmission Repairs for All Major Manufacturers

Transmissions play a critical role in controlling the power generated by the engine and transmitting it to the wheels at various speeds. Your vehicle's transmission is a very complex mechanical and electrical system, however, many of these repairs are often small and affordable. Gearboxes can develop several problems over time, including worn gears, damaged synchromeshes, and fluid leaks. These issues can result in symptoms like gears slipping, difficulty shifting, strange noises, or vibrations. If you ignore the warnings, it can often become expensive to repair further down the road. If your car is slipping gears, leaking fluid or slow to react, then you might have a problem with your transmission.

Gearbox Repair Near Me

At Service4Service we provide specialist gearbox repairs for all major manufacturers. There are different types of transmissions used in cars, including manual, automatic, semi-automatic (also known as automated manual), and continuously variable transmissions (CVTs). Each type requires different repair techniques and expertise. We offer repairs for manual, automatic, hybrid, Powershift, CVT, DCT and DSG gearboxes. Automatic transmission repairs are more complex and may require repairs related to torque converters, valve bodies, fluid leaks, electronic controls, and solenoids. Rebuilding or overhauling the automatic transmission can become necessary in severe cases. Depending on the extent of damage and the age of the vehicle, it may be more cost-effective to rebuild the gearbox rather than replace it with a new one. 

Gearbox repair requires specialised knowledge and experience. It's essential to entrust this work to certified and experienced technicians or transmission specialists who have the necessary tools and diagnostic equipment. We only use OEM or manufacturer warranty-approved parts to ensure that our customers’ vehicles remain in top condition. For expert manual and automatic repairs, our technicians provide exceptional mechanical services.

Frequently Asked Questions

Understanding your vehicle's maintenance needs, and addressing issues promptly are key to maintaining your car's performance and reliability. If you have specific questions about your vehicle or a repair issue, don't hesitate to call Service4Service on 0808 164 0418 for guidance.

What are the signs that my car's transmission needs repair?

Common signs that your car's transmission needs to be repaired include slipping gears, difficulty shifting gears, grinding noises, fluid leaks, and vibrations during gear changes. If you notice any of these symptoms, it's essential to have your gearbox inspected by our highly skilled technicians to avoid further damage.

What types of repairs can you carry out?

We provide several options to rectify a faulty transmission including gearbox replacement, rebuilds and reconditioning. At Service4Service, our specialist technicians only fit Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) or manufacturer warranty-approved parts and all repairs come with a 12-month guarantee.

What equipment do you use to repair a gearbox problem?

We can confidently diagnose any gearbox issues using the latest computer diagnostic equipment, repairing and replacing only the things that require it, using industry-approved tools and parts.

What is the difference between gearbox replacement and repair?

Gearbox repair involves fixing specific issues within the existing transmission, such as replacing worn components or addressing fluid leaks. Gearbox replacement means installing an entirely new transmission unit.

Why is my vehicle leaking oil?

Oil leaks can happen for a number of reasons, from wear and tear or broken seals to overfilled oil levels. Over time, your vehicle is at risk of general wear and tear and unfortunately, that includes your transmission and its related connections. Leaks should be fixed quickly, so it’s best to speak to a professional at Service4Service and get your car checked over.

Why is my car making a grinding noise?

The gearbox shafts need to be moving at the same speed in order to change gears smoothly and when this doesn’t happen, you’ll hear grinding. Modern cars tend to have a synchroniser ring to help keep both parts up to speed, but this can also go wrong from time to time, so it’s best to have things checked out.

Initially, I encountered some issues due to the complexity of the repair work , however their commitment to customer satisfaction truly impressed me. When matter got escalated the director of the company , Julian, promptly addressed and rectified the concerns, demonstrating a genuine dedication to ensuring a positive experience. The subsequent service exceeded expectations, showcasing their commitment to improvement. Julian’s professionalism and willingness to resolve issues have turned my opinion around. I now appreciate the effort and recommend Service for Service for their commendable customer service and commitment to rectifying concerns.

Transmission Repair
My car was displaying "Service Transmission" message. After calling CS, Aaron helped me to understand the process and he booked a collection right away. He also explained that I need to expect high costs. Although the final cost was much higher than expected, the repair was carried out in a timely manner and I was informed of the progress.
After reviews on other garages and being a bit concerned how will such a big repair go, I am very satisfied with the end result.
If I ever have such a problem with my car (hopefully not for a long time) I'd choose Service4Service again so I can be sure my car is looked after properly.

Gearbox Repair
I just wanted to say what a brilliant experience I had from start to finish with this company. My car's gearbox was shot and my car had been sat on damp grass for over two months due to my local garage being unable to fix it or to keep us regularly updated with their plan (I don't think they even had a plan). I wish I had contacted this company so much sooner than I did because once they took over, they took all the stress out of the situation. Liam was the guy that dealt with us from start to finish. He was very knowledgeable and reassuring and his customer service was faultless. Service 4servive collected my car from the local garage, fixed it and then delivered it back to us at home. I'm so happy to finally have our family car back after nearly three months without it. The cost wasn't cheap but the labour was intensive and I don't believe I would have gotten the job done any cheaper elsewhere. This company even allowed us to pay the final bill (after deposit) with interest free finance. I'm really pleased and just wanted to pass on my thanks to Liam and everyone else at service 4 service who played a part in delivering such great service. Thank you x

After a complete transmission fail on my car, i looked for a company to complete my repairs. After searching on the Net, Gearbox Repairs popped up on the screen. This company is brilliant, they collected my car from my home address and once the repair was completed, dropped it back to me again - was even done a day early than expected. I would like to express my sincere thanks to Jon Wood, who dealt with a query after i had my car back - this was done very promptly and efficiently - an excellent service and a massive thanks again. Fully recommended. Thanks again Jon Wood.
