Manual Transmission Rebuild and Repair Service

Manual Transmission Repair and Rebuilding

If there’s one thing we know best, its transmissions. When the time comes that you need repairs or a rebuild, you’ll be hard-pressed to find an automotive shop as meticulous, performance-minded, and reliable as us.

We offer rebuilding services for all manual transmissions.

The transmission can be removed and dropped off, or we can remove & install.

If you are not local, then we can easily make arrangements for shipping. Please see our Shipping page

Manual Transmission Service

Also commonly known as ‘stick shift’ or ‘standard transmission’, manual transmissions offer performance, reliability, and an exhilarating driving experience that simply can’t be matched with automatics.

Be it for performance, durability, or simply a fondness for the classics, many of us still prefer manual transmissions to get us from A-to-B.

Despite its many benefits and notable durability, even the best performing transmission and parts can wear down, causing issues over time, leading to required repair work an entire rebuild.

At Texas Driven Performance we specialize in helping you get more from your ride, with performance transmissions engineered to outpace and outperform the competition.

Using the highest-grade parts, installed by our talented team of automotive veterans, our manual transmission services deliver where it matters most: on the road.

Setting the standard for manual transmission repair in Texas. Our team is dedicated to providing superior service and unmatched craftsmanship guaranteed to perform.

Having an understanding of when to hire a qualified transmission repair technician can save you time, money, and frustration. Putting off some issues can lead to further damage, costing you big later on.

Warning Signs Your Manual Transmission Might be Failing:

  • The clutch slips when changing gears
  • The clutch pedal feels strange or not as responsive
  • You hear grinding sounds when switching gears
  • You have difficulty getting the transmission to go into gear
  • You notice a burning or strange smell when you release the clutch
  • High engine revving when you release the clutch
  • Delays in movement after shifting
  • Odd noises or sounds that are unfamiliar
  • Car refuses to go into gear or won’t come out of gear
  • Higher or lower RPM than usual when in gear
  • And more…

At the first sign of an issue, your best bet is to bring the car by the shop. Catching transmission problems early on can help you avoid costly damage.

Every situation is unique, but in many cases, repairing a manual transmission is well worth it. Repairs often cost significantly less than a full rebuild or replacement, and can be done quickly and efficiently, getting you back on the road fast.

Absolutely. Anyone with the right skill set, training, and tools is capable of fixing a manual transmission on their own. That said, many car enthusiasts do better behind the wheel than under the hood so to speak. Our technicians can reliably repair your manual transmission, letting you focus on more important things in your life.

Again, every case is unique. Some repairs are small and quite affordable, requiring a simple parts replacement. In others, waiting too long to have the transmission looked at, or an old tranny that is clearly worn out, might not be worth repair, requiring a full rebuild.

Our team would be happy to take a look at your ride and put together a quote based on your timeline, budget, and performance expectations.

Manual Transmission Rebuild

Rebuilding a transmission is a great way to extend the life of your vehicle while saving you money on a complete replacement. Although more costly than simply repairing the transmission, a manual transmission rebuild could end up saving you over the long run, while enhancing the performance of your vehicle.

Unlike a transmission replacement, a manual rebuild entails expert inspection of all involved parts, assessing them for wear or damage, and replacing those needing replacement before rebuilding the transmission.

Transmission Rebuilds May Involve Replacement of:

  • Bellhousing and tail housing
  • Gears
  • Input shafts
  • Output shafts
  • Synchronizers
  • And more…

It is not uncommon for some issues to be related to the clutch or flywheel which may also require repair or replacement.
