A Ralph's technician works on a part that is separated from the vehicle.Carolina recently visited Ralph’s Transmission in Modesto because her car was having transmission problems. She wasn’t sure exactly what was wrong, so she wanted to get a free professional inspection from our expert transmission technicians.

After running diagnostic tests, performing an external inspection and road testing the vehicle, there were definitely some serious issues that needed further inspection. This requires pulling the transmission from the vehicle and dismantling it to get to the source(s) of the problem. Through this process, the Ralph’s Transmission specialists are able to determine exactly what’s wrong and provide a professional repair recommendation.

In Carolina’s case, there was significant internal damage. Our recommendation was to perform a full custom transmission rebuild. This is often a much better solution than making a few repairs that may not hold up as other internal parts get worn out at different times. A transmission rebuild involves breaking the transmission assembly down to every single nut and bolt. All healthy components are professionally cleaned and reinstalled. Any worn or damaged components are replaced. The transmission is essentially rebuilt from the ground up to ensure it is running like new again.

This thorough rebuild process by our in-house transmission rebuild specialists is what enables us to offer an industry-leading 3 Year, 100,000 Mile Warranty. We also offer special financing programs if you need financial assistance for any major transmission repairs at Ralph’s Transmission.

“A great place,” Carolina writes in her Google review. “They offer financing, but we didn’t need it. It is nice to know they will have your car done in such a short time, and have a great 3 year warranty. Definitely will come back if the transmission goes out in my other car.”

Ralph’s Transmission provides transmission repair, maintenance and rebuild services for all vehicle makes and models. We love trucks, SUVs and work vehicles, but we work on plenty of passenger cars, as well. If you are worried about your transmission, you can always bring it to us for a free, no-obligation inspection, road test and diagnostics. Then, we’ll present you with a detailed inspection report and accurate price estimates for any recommended repairs.

“The price is fair I would say for the piece of mind,” Carolina adds. “No one wants to spend a couple thousand on a car, but I much rather spend on a car we own than go put the same amount as a down payment for a car I don’t own. Great job, and friendly front desk.”
