Prevention is better than cure. You've probably heard that said plenty of times. The phrase is most often used to talk about health and medicine, but it is just as valid to apply it to vehicles. It's great if your problem can be sorted without much trouble, but even better not to have a problem in the first place. This is especially true when it comes to your vehicle's transmission, as this can be one of the more specialized parts to repair. Not all transmission problems require an extensive overhaul, but they will all cause at least some trouble and inconvenience. Avoiding transmission problems is clearly preferable to even the problems that are quickest and cheapest repair. This is why it is important to ensure you take good care of your transmission. This will help prevent problems and keep it working smoothly. Ideally, it will mean that it doesn't develop any faults at all. Even if it does eventually go wrong, however, it is entirely possible that good care will mean the fault is less serious and easier to repair than it would have been otherwise.
Your transmission suddenly isn’t shifting right. So what’s wrong with it? Do you need your transmission rebuilt? Good question. Unfortunately, the answer is: No one knows. At least, not yet. To find out what’s causing your transmission problem, a technician is going to have to perform a series of tests. Basically, these tests are designed to answer the simple question: “Is it inside or outside?” That is, is the problem inside the transmission, or in one of the many control systems that operates the transmission?
Whether you have a car that's been sitting a little too long or a fleet that needs a basic check, Steve's Automotive in the Marietta, GA area can get your vehicle back on the road quickly, and we work with your insurance company to ensure you get the best repair job at a competitive price.

Each JASPER remanufactured Toyota A750E and A750F transmission is 100% dynamometer tested using a state of the art dyno software package eliminating the chance of shifting concerns and ensures a quality product for the customer. All wear areas of the valve body are reamed to oversize, where applicable, and vacuum-tested to restore the hydraulic integrity of the unit reducing the chance of low fluid pressure within the transmission, causing slipped clutches.

Each transmission receives 100% new friction plates from the OE manufacturer to retain shift quality and durability. Converter linings are 100% replaced to reduce lock-up shudder and solenoids are 100% tested to verify proper operation before they are installed in the transmission.

TRUE OR FALSE? Until your vehicle is out-of-warranty, it must be serviced by the new car dealer or the factory warranty will be void?
FALSE? Our ASE Certified technicians at Steve's Automotive CAN SERVICE your vehicle if it is under warranty with the same tools typically faster and at a better price point plus we are cross-trained in multiple lines of vehicles vs. just the brand at the dealership you bought your car or truck giving you more options!
It’s the law that independent repair shops can provide the services to maintain your new car warranty. Consumers are protected by the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, enforced by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), which prohibits a manufacturer from voiding the vehicle warranty because service was done by a non-dealer.
Cold weather and vehicle performance aren’t necessarily the best of friends. “Every mile is two in winter.” That quote is attributed to the English poet George Herbert. Even though he wasn’t referring to driving an SUV with heated leather seats, his philosophy still applies today. Winters can be hard, cold, long, and dark.

We see stretched TJ Wranglers all the time, to the point that they have become somewhat tiresome. Don’t get us wrong, the formula works well for technical terrain and steep climbs. But this same phenomenon has not occurred with the JK, since you can just buy an Unlimited off the showroom floor with a schoolbus-like 116-inch wheelbase. Not everyone wants that much wheelbase though, or the extra sheetmetal and weight that come with the four-door JK. Jack Stanko has one of the first stretched two-door JKs that we have seen, and while we still aren’t too fond of comp-cut corners, there is enough innovation on this vehicle that it is certainly worth sharing.
