Transmission Repair Services

From manual to automatic transmission repair, Foster's Advanced Auto Service in New Brighton, MN 55112 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 651-635-9890 to talk to the mechanics of Foster's Advanced Auto Service 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 Foster's Advanced Auto Service 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 383 Old Highway 8 NW 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, Foster's Advanced Auto Service of New Brighton, MN 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 Foster's Advanced Auto Service, 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 Foster's Advanced Auto Service 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 Foster's Advanced Auto Service 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 Foster's Advanced Auto Service in New Brighton, MN. Our experienced service technicians can help you make the best decision for your vehicle and your wallet.

Testimonials

  • Great service, fair prices. They are VERY willing to work with YOUR schedule to make it convenient for you! I?ve already been recommending them!
    -Paula R.

  • Loved the pleasant people working there and they did a quick and quality of a job on my jeep. Very trustworthy and honest.
    -Danielle R.

  • I went in for a routine oil chnage and came out over a K lighter with new brakes all around as well as wheel bearings up front. I knew the brakes were weak, but I didn?t realize how bad. So, why am I not displeased? A technician showed me the rotors and break pads. I had no brakes. Were I not to have them repaired, I would have needed to sign a document indicating I was informed and releasing the company of liability. So, I had the work done and followed the process. What I bought was not only a totally new brake system, but peace-of-mind and absolute confidence that the work was done by the absolute best technician, I must also note that I was treated with comfort and respect through the entire experience. I absolutely trust these people.
    -T.J. W.

  • These guys are the best type of mechanics you can wish for. They are honest and trustworthy. They tell you what needs fixed and do not make you get unnecessary repairs. As a woman who has gotten ripped off by many mechanics in Mpls, I can honestly recommend these guys. They do high quiality work. I am very pleased with the friendly and complete service they provide. I would recommend them to my friends and family anytime. Keep up the good work guys !
    -Wanda K.

  • Needed new shocks and struts for the wife?s car and got a same-day appointment. I had a lower estimate elsewhere prior to coming in, and Foster?s Advanced told me they?d beat it by $50 and get me in and out in one day. They delivered and were great to work with. This is the kind of place I can feel comfortable recommending to others. They deliver what they promise and don?t try to push services you don?t need.
    -Kraig & Lisa

  • I arrived a bit early and yet they still fit me into the schedule and out of there ahead of time. I always receive fast, knowledgeable and friendly service that I can afford. I recommend coming here to all of my co-workers and friends.
    -Vicki K.

  • I have had two car repairs done at Foster?s Advanced Auto Service within the last few weeks, and I have 3 very positive things to report. First of all ? they saved me money, actually saved around $800 from an estimate I had gotten from the car dealer. Second ? they are trustworthy, and keep their word. Even stuck to an original estimate when the work ended up taking longer than planned for. Third ? and very important to me, they are ?Real? people ? made me feel welcome, and comfortable right off the bat, and I really prefer dealing with real people over a ?corporation?. Yup great place to do business!
    -Franky L.

  • I needed to get new brakes and the guys at Foster?s Advanced Auto Service bent over backwards to make it happen. They gave me and my daughter a ride back home while they worked on my vehicle and offered to stay late til I could come back and pick it up. The guys were so nice and really seemed to appreciate my business. The cost was extremely reasonable compared with the price quote I received from other places. I would recommend them to my friends for sure
