Transmission & Clutches Service in Cumming, IA

Mechanic performing truck transmission repair service at Absolute Repair

With so many different makes and models of diesel trucks and machines, there are varying clutch and transmission designs and systems. The one constant between these various systems though is that eventually, they all wear and break down. At Absolute Repair, we believe that it is imperative to have a preventative maintenance plan which includes transmission and clutch service and adjustments according to the manufacturer's specifications in order to keep your truck running safely and securely.

The lifespan of your clutch and transmission systems is impacted by several factors, including driving conditions and how much weight you haul. Changes in clutch pedal pressure, unusual noises when you depress the clutch, difficulty shifting, temporary loss of acceleration, or slipping are symptoms of a clutch or transmission problem that needs immediate attention.

Correctly diagnosing and repairing transmission issues requires experience and the right tools. For example, sometimes a transmission will leak fluid but have no other driveability issues. When this happens, you can often avoid rebuilding the entire transmission by removing it and replacing external seals and selected components. However, in other cases, worn internal parts are too damaged, and a rebuild of the unit is required. 

Signs that your transmission needs service  

Transmission and clutch life can vary depending on things like traffic, haul weight, and towing frequency. The team at Absolute Repair is here to help diagnose problems before your vehicle becomes dangerous to drive.

Unusual noises when pressing the clutch pedal

If you notice noise from your clutch when you release or press the clutch pedal, chances are your pilot, release, or throw-out bearings are failing and will need to be replaced.

Difficulty shifting gears, or into reverse

Difficulty shifting is likely caused by the clutch disc not moving away from the spinning flywheel. The culprit is more often than not the hydraulic system that operates the clutch, which could be leaking.

Whether your transmission needs an adjustment, repair, or total rebuild, it's critical to take your truck to a shop that you can trust. We’ve built our reputation on honesty and quality work. Reach out to one of our team members and we’ll work with you to ensure proper maintenance of your suspension and clutch.

What Our Customers are saying About Us

★★★★★

While on vacation recently we unfortunately encountered a broken axle on our travel trailer. Being from out of town and the fact that it was a Sunday evening we had no idea who to call for repair. The tow truck driver recommended Absolute Repair and we were towed to that facility. The tow truck driver notified the owner of Absolute Repair that we were in their parking lot. On Monday morning we were greeted by Andrew who evaluated the situation. Peter (the owner) and Andrew were very easy to work with and kept us informed of their efforts to secure a new axle. Once they had the axle they worked quickly and diligently to put the new axle on the trailer and we were back on the road late Monday afternoon. Peter himself worked with another tech to complete the repair. Peter and Andrew are both very knowledgeable, explaining in detail the repair, as well as being concerned for our comfort and offering us the use of their lounge. The repair price was very reasonable. Andrew even placed a follow up call to us the next day to make sure everything was fine with the trailer. We cannot speak highly enough of this company and would recommend them to anyone without hesitation. Our sincere thanks to Peter and Andrew for assisting us and getting us back on the road so quickly.
