Why Specialize in Transmission Repairs?

At Ralph's Transmission, we get asked for other automotive requests all the time. Can you change my oil? Can you replace my radiator? Can you bleed the brakes? Respectfully, we always have to decline any request not related to the transmission of your car.

Services we do offer are transmission rebuilds and repairs for transmissions, torque converters, drivelines, transfer cases, clutches, speedometers, U-joints, differentials, transmission fluid, drive axles and drive trains.

But why only specialize in these transmission services? Don't we want that other business from customers? The answer is simple. It's all about specialization. Transmissions are what we do best and we prefer to stay focused on providing the highest standards of quality for our customers when it comes to this specialization.

Think about it this way. You wouldn't ask a cardiologist to give you a dental exam, would you? You wouldn't ask a brain surgeon to install a pacemaker either. Most doctors, dentists and surgeons are all experts in one particular field of medicine, and that's why you put your trust in them when you are dealing with a specific parts of your body. 

The same is true of your car. If the engine is the heart of your car, then think of the transmission as the brain. One won't work properly without the other. The professionals at Ralph's Transmission in our Modesto shop are equipped with the specialized knowledge, experience and diagnostic tools to focus exclusively on transmission repairs, rebuilds and other related transmission services.

Even within our shop, we have different specialists for different jobs. We have R&R (Remove and Replace) experts who know how to remove and reinstall repaired, rebuilt or new transmissions in all types of cars. We have diagnosticians who are skilled at finding the problems in any transmission. We have transmission rebuilders in-house, who can take a transmission down to every single nut and bolt to identify problems, replace parts and rebuild it to like-new condition. It's why we offer such a great 3 Year, 100,000 Mile Warranty on all transmission rebuilds at Ralph's. We also have many other exceptional mechanics and transmission experts to handle other specific duties when only minor repairs or parts replacements are needed.

If you need general automotive services, we're happy to provide you with a recommendation. We have relationships with many great shops throughout the Central Valley. Likewise, many general repair shops will subcontract Ralph's Transmission to do transmission rebuilds and repairs because of our specialization. Or, they may refer you straight to us if the problem is identified in your transmission. 

Just remember if you have transmission problems—and transmission problems only—take your car to Ralph's Transmission just down the road from Downtown Modesto on 9th Street. Or, call us at 209.526.1909 if you have questions about whether your repair is something we would handle. We are the transmission experts and nothing else, so we know how to get the job done right.
