For expert transmission repair and rebuilding, trust AAMCO in Boardman, Ohio. Our Total Car Care Center guarantees our transmission services with the Best Nationwide Warranty available. Our auto service experts in Boardman, OH, start their evaluation of your transmission with the Initial Vehicle Check (IVC), a thorough, multi-point inspection that can pinpoint your transmission problems.

We promise to repair only what needs fixing and never anything more; that’s just one reason why AAMCO has been the most trusted name in quality, affordable transmission services and repairs for over 50 years.

Once this thorough evaluation is complete, your AAMCO technician will recommend the repairs your transmission needs. However, if this initial evaluation doesn’t turn up the cause of your transmission problems, we will use our state-of-the-art diagnostic technology and equipment to pinpoint the problem.
New vehicles are especially dependent on their computer systems, which is why advanced computer and internal diagnostics are essential for determining the cause of a problem. At AAMCO, our skilled technicians can isolate the problem so you’re not paying for unnecessary repairs. AAMCO Computer Vehicle Courtesy Check can determine if an electrical component is affecting your transmission’s shifting ability or overall performance. Using a computer system scanner, your technician will be able to retrieve potential trouble codes, check all critical systems, and compare your system data with the data in our technical database. Your AAMCO technician can find out whether the problem is in your transmission or elsewhere. Finally, your technician will recommend specific repairs and replacements, as needed.
It is because of this thorough approach using state-of-the-art diagnostics that we can pinpoint the exact cause of your transmission problem and repair only that problem, saving you time and money. In fact, more than half the vehicles we service only require a minor repair. Other repair shops can’t say the same.

Frequently Asked Transmission Repair Questions
When should I check the transmission fluid?
You should check the transmission fluid regularly. Try to check it at least once a month or at the sign of any trouble, for instance if there is any hesitation when you shift gears in an automatic. Refer to your vehicle’s owner’s manual for guidance on transmission fluid flush intervals.
How frequently should my transmission's fluid be changed?
Many modern cars can go for an initial 100,000 miles before needing a transmission fluid flush but many manuals recommend changing your transmission fluid every 30,000 to 50,000 miles for manual transmission and 60,000 to 100,000 miles for automatic transmission vehicles.
