If you’re driving a vehicle with a manual transmission, you are probably more aware of your transmission than the average driver. When you get behind the wheel, you can feel the way your car works to pick up speed: a fusion of man and machine. Take care of your shifting gears with the manual transmission experts at American & Foreign Transmission Service in Reno, Nevada.
Manual Transmission Services
Car troubles really grind your gears. On your manual transmission vehicle, grinding gears can cause a number of issues. The heat, pressure and friction that occurs in your transmission slowly breaks down and dirties your transmission fluid. We provide services to ensure your vehicle has the proper amount of clean transmission fluid to keep it running at a high-performance level and with excellent fuel economy.

Replacing Transmission Fluid
Even though you personally put more work into your transmission than drivers with automatic transmissions, you need to change the transmission fluid at a similar frequency. We recommend scheduling a transmission service every two years or after about 24,000 miles.

We also offer transmission flushes and resealing on manual transmissions. Visit our services page to see what we can do.
