Undercar Services: Maintenance & Repair

Rely on Dorsey Transmission & Automotive Repair in Severn, MD 21144 to provide quality care for your vehicle's undercarriage. Stop by our shop to see how we can help you or call 410-551-4006 for more information.

To keep your vehicle running at peak performance, we provide undercar services that include:

Anti-Lock Brakes
Anti-lock brakes prevent wheel lock-up when rapidly decelerating by automatically modulating the brake pressure during an emergency stop. With this system, the wheels are able to maintain traction with the road while braking. Failure of the anti-lock brakes could lead to an increase in the risks of multiple vehicle crashes and run-off road crashes. To avoid this, have your anti-lock brake system checked and repaired by experts. At Dorsey Transmission & Automotive Repair, we have anti-lock brake experts who will examine and repair your faulty ABS - keeping you safe.

Brakes
A brake is a mechanical device for slowing or stopping a vehicle (usually by means of friction). In short, a brake inhibits your car's motion. It lets you stop the car whenever and wherever you choose. Brakes are one of the most important parts of a motor vehicle. Without them, you would not be able to stop the car. If your vehicle's brakes are having issues, consider having them worked on. Brake experts at Dorsey Transmission & Automotive Repair can work on your car's brakes to ensure you have a safe drive.

Chassis
A chassis is the car's internal framework that supports the body and other parts like the wheels, engine, transmission, driveshaft, differential, and suspension. A weak or damaged chassis will translate to a weak car. To have a strong and properly working vehicle, have your car's chassis checked for defects. At Dorsey Transmission & Automotive Repair, there are experienced undercar service providers who can work on your chassis.

Differentials
The differential transfers the engine power to the wheels. One important function of the differential is to pass on power to the wheels while allowing them to rotate at different speeds - thus the name differential. When turning, the outer wheels travel a larger distance than the inner wheels do (also the front wheels travel a longer distance than the rear wheels). This means that all four wheels travel at different speeds during a turn and this is where the differential comes in to help. To make sure your vehicle's differentials are working properly, have them checked regularly. Contact Dorsey Transmission & Automotive Repair today for differentials examination and servicing.

Exhaust
In a motor vehicle, an exhaust system is a piping used to guide exhaust fumes away from the engine - usually to the rear of the vehicle. A properly functioning exhaust system not only sounds better, it is better - for you, your car, and the environment. Dorsey Transmission & Automotive Repair has expert technicians to service your car's exhaust system.

Driveline
A driveline is a part of your motor vehicle that connects the engine and the transmission to the wheel axles. The driveline consists of the parts of the powertrain less the engine and transmission. Failure of the driveline means that the car would not move since energy cannot be transmitted from the engine to the wheel axles. Therefore, make sure that your car's driveline is regularly inspected and serviced. And, at Dorsey Transmission & Automotive Repair, you can have the driveline serviced by experts.

Shocks
Shocks (or shock absorbers) are mechanical devices designed to smooth out rough roads. The devices do this by converting kinetic energy to another form of energy. Properly working shocks reduce the effect of traveling over rough ground, leading to improved ride quality and vehicle handling. When shocks develop problems, driving on poorly leveled roads becomes unpleasant, and your vehicle may sway when turning. To have your vehicle's shocks diagnosed and repaired, visit Dorsey Transmission & Automotive Repair today.

Testimonials

  • Really great experience. My transmission blew up the other day & the closest place is Dorsey transmission. I went and spoke to Jack and he was just amazing. He was kind and very resourceful. I was very pleased! Also spoke to his shop foreman Rick was very helpful on what was going to take place had transmission repaired and was very satisfied.

  • 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.
    -William N.

  • 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!
