Transmission Repair Services

From manual to automatic transmission repair, Dorsey Transmission & Automotive Repair in Severn, MD 21144 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 410-551-4006 to talk to the mechanics of Dorsey Transmission & Automotive Repair 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 Dorsey Transmission & Automotive Repair 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 908 Reece Rd 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, Dorsey Transmission & Automotive Repair of Severn, MD 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 Dorsey Transmission & Automotive Repair, 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 Dorsey Transmission & Automotive Repair 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 Dorsey Transmission & Automotive Repair today.

    -John S.

  • I've been dealing with Jack for over 20 years from a simple oil change to replacing a heater core Its nice to have a mechanic that doesn't try to sell you something you don't need. My vehicle is older so Jack watches the mileage and lets me know what needs to done and when . It's a nice experience to deal with Jack. I have referred several co-workers to Jacks shop and they have all told me they would use him again. I would highly recommend Jack and Dorsey Transmissions great people and excellent service.

  • Had my clutch swapped here. They did a great job and at a good price. Their customer service is also awesome.
    -Jarett H.

  • The only place I'll take my cars in Maryland. Customer service is great and the work is just as good. They have helped my family in multiple situations and have a good sense of humor about our terrible car luck.
    -Clayton G.

  • I've been using dorsey for about 4 years now. They've always been honest and upfront. I've had them service German and Japanese autos. Top notch. If they can't do the work they'll tell you instead of ripping you off. These guys are great
    -Kenneth M.

  • Worked with Rick - he is very helpful and takes pride in his work. With the professionalism and service I received, I will most certainly be back! I thought the prices were reasonable as well.
    -Justin V.

  • This has become the only place I will take my cars for service. They are friendly, helpful, do quality work and are very reasonably priced. They work with you and really care and take care of the customer. I cannot recommend them enough. Just something to keep in mind is that everyone else knows they are a great shop so it can take a day or two for them to get your car back to you. They're just that busy. I consider it a good thing and a sign of how good the place is. I cannot recommend them enough!
