A fully operational transmission, along with your vehicle's engine, is by far the most important machine in your car. In the words of Rob George, co-owner of Quaker Transmissions in Warwick, your transmission is "what makes the wheels move", and so if your transmission isn't working properly or is damaged, your vehicle has no power source. A transmission is a remarkable contraption that is the reason your car can shift from gear to gear, thus accommodating your demands for speed and acceleration.
The life of your transmission is impacted by extreme temperatures and is especially vulnerable in these snowy, cold wintery days. If you notice that your vehicle is having trouble changing gears, if the gears are slipping, if it is grinding and shaking, or if your "check engine" light goes on, Rob George warns ~ you may be in trouble. It is time to bring your vehicle in to Quaker Transmissions to repair and prolong the life of this critical component of your car.
Quaker Transmissions was established in 1990 by longtime technicians Rob George and John O'Hara. George and O'Hara are experienced, knowledgeable and highly skilled technicians who know transmissions better than they know just about anything. In their long careers, dating back to the early 70's, they have serviced every kind of transmission in vehicles of every make, model and year. At any given time, there might be anything from an old Cadillac or a new SUV in one of their bays. Transmissions are their first language; it's what they do with expertise, skilled workmanship and mostly, with complete honesty and integrity.
Rob George explains: "Transmission work is a specialty that can't be taken on by your general mechanic." Transmission work is highly specialized and cannot be done by technicians with less-than-par workmanship or lack of experience without posing a tremendous risk to your vehicle. Rob and John value their customers trust and know this business well enough to diagnose the problem, state the facts with full disclosure and most importantly, get the work done in a timely and professional way.
