“Very honest and helpful when we had further problems, bent over backwards to direct us to the right people. Would highly recommend them. Granddaughters transmission went out soon after ours… Mike to the rescue again, can’t say enough good things about Mike, had it in and out in record time! They are honest and fair in pricing. Thanks again Mike!!”

“Great service! Great ownership! This is a company of integrity and we’ll definitely be back for all our future transmission work!”

Uri Giorgi

“My transmission went out and they did a great job of fixing it up and also kept me updated throughout the whole process. My mother’s transmission also went out and when there was a delay in the shipment of the transmission, they paid for her rental car so that the whole process was easier. Overall great experience.”

“Mike and his staff are fantastic! Great and friendly service from beginning to end! They took care of my car in great order and had it done fast too! Mastertech is AAA certified (which is a hard thing to become) and I see why! Friendly like family when you walk in the door! Even took me home when I needed a ride! Plus the price of repair was very fair! I will happily recommend them to any of my friends or family from now on! AAAAA+++++ rating in my book!”

Bob McHenry

“They do good transmission work.”

Jacson White

“I took my truck in to have it looked at and told the guy at the front I was headed to Washington. The owner overheard me say that and fixed it that day and because he knew I was headed to Washington, he tested everything himself to make sure I was good to go. Awesome service and it did not cost me an arm and a leg to get it done. Highly recommended. Thank you, guys.”

Angel Montano

“Fix my truck with no problems. Love these guys. Great place.”

“Honest place – told me they didn’t want to work on my car because they didn’t think it was a transmission issue. Recommended a place to go instead of taking money they knew they didn’t have to.”

Auto Maintenance FAQs

A: Most modern vehicles have ways to let you know if you are having an issue with the transmission. Some vehicles have check transmission lights. Some vehicles will indicate a transmission problem by flashing the OD (over drive) button. Others just show a standard check engine light. If you feel something unusual in the shifting and it is accompanied by some warning light on your dashboard, it is best to get it checked.
A: It might. If you see the check engine light on your dashboard light up or flash, there could be one of any number of problems with your vehicle, including a problem with your transmission. Do not overlook this important warning. That light is often an early indicator something may be seriously wrong with your vehicle. You can bring your vehicle directly to us at our Wichita shop and we will run a FREE DIAGNOSTIC to test whether you have a transmission problem or something else.
A: Whether or not an auto body shop that handles overall vehicle repairs can handle your transmission problem is dependent upon how big of a problem you have. Many can service your transmission and make minor repairs when the damage is minor. But if your vehicle requires something more extensive like a transmission rebuild, most auto body shops don’t have the expertise and necessary equipment to handle that level of service. Here at Mastertech, transmission work is all we do. So you can be sure the technicians fixing your car here have the most complete training and experience to fully fix whatever is causing your vehicle to have transmission problems.
A: Transmissions must have fluid to function properly. This fluid is generally a bright red fluid. If you notice several ``splotches`` or ``drips``, that may indicate a small leak possibly with a connection, line or small external seal. A huge leak would indicate a major seal failure. If you notice just a few small drips, you are likely fine to drive your vehicle a transmission repair shop. If a large amount of fluid has leaked out, you will want to have it towed in for repair.
A: Transmission flushes are a great way to maintain a vehicles transmission fluid and promote long-lasting life for your vehicle. The general recommendation is to flush your transmission every 2 years or 30,000 miles. Waiting until a transmission is malfunctioning may be too late. Once a transmission has begun to display symptoms, it may be too late for a transmission flush to help fix the problem.
A transmission repair is needed when only the bare minimum amount of parts is needed to get your transmission working again. Usually just a few parts are replaced and there is no need to rebuild the entire transmission. This is more affordable than a transmission rebuild, but sometimes the damage is too much for a simple transmission repair to be an option.

A transmission rebuild is when the entire transmission is taken apart. The components are inspected, and any worn or damaged parts are replaced. The transmission is reassembled and installed back into your vehicle. Each rebuild process is customized to the vehicle. A transmission rebuild are specialized jobs and require transmission specialists to undertake.

A: A re-manufactured transmission is a transmission that has been rebuilt in a factory-style setting. That does not mean it is a dealer factory. These re-manufactured transmissions are generally built the exact same way we would rebuild one in our Mastertech shop. The only difference is truly the term. Both will result in transmissions that match factory specifications and likely to even include upgraded components. Re-manufactured is often presented as a higher-end option, but there is no difference between a re-manufactured (built in factory setting) and rebuild (built on site of transmission facility).
For a long time and sometimes still today, standard practice at many lube shops is to suggest oil changes every three months or 3,000 miles. In order to know when the best time to get your oil changed is, check the owner’s manual of your specific model for manufacturer-recommended intervals.
