Is it wear & tear or a serious problem?

It’s not always easy to recognize when your vehicle is suffering from a simple problem that requires a little maintenance and TLC or there is real engine damage as symptoms can be overlooked and seen as “normal.” While not all sounds and smells may threaten the life of your car or truck engine, there are some obvious warning signs that require a vehicle inspection here at the shop right away.

Working with our youth.

Another fine service for oil change. I called 30 minutes before I could get there, they had the correct oil filter delivered and they took me right away. - Roman D.

San Diego Transmission Repair Services

As a full-service repair shop, MOTEC Auto Care offers transmission services to help get you back on the road as quickly as possible.

  • We offer an inclusive 3YR / 100K mile warranty with any transmission installation.
  • If you are experiencing transmission trouble, bring your vehicle in for a complimentary diagnostic test, no appointment necessary.
  • MOTEC will never sell you something you don’t need. MOTEC Auto Care will never remove a transmission from a vehicle unless absolutely necessary.

We offer transmission replacments for most makes and models as well as basic transmission repair services like transmission gaskets and fluid changes. Using our state of the art diagnostic facility, we can perform high quality work at competitive prices and get you back on the road with money in your pocket and time to spare.

Regular transmission fluid exchange is important to the health of your vehicle. Over time, the fluid in the transmission degrades and your car’s engine is no longer being properly cooled and lubricated. Changing the fluid as part of your car’s scheduled maintenance can help prevent premature wear and damage to the transmission.

Think you need a new transmission? Bring your car to us, all of our transmission replacements are backed by our MOTEC 3 Year / 100k Mile Warranty.*

Please give us a call with any questions about our transmission service.

Lifetime Tune Ups & 30k/60k/90k Factory Services

Getting regular tune-ups in accordance with your vehicle’s factory-recommended maintenance is the best way to protect your car, extend its life, and prevent high-cost auto repairs. Regular maintenance ensures that your car will perform optimally and have better gas mileage. Most vehicles need tune-ups every 30,000 miles and major maintenance at 60,000 miles. Some newer vehicles do not need major maintenance until 100,000. Cars built before 1979 have additional requirements, such as changing the points and condenser or checking the timing. Our specialists are trained to repair vehicles built prior to 1979. We are also trained to tune up fuel-injected vehicles, which need to have the throttle plate cleaned and the air/fuel mixture adjusted.
