At Sloan's Automotive, we understand the terror that comes with the words "transmission repair" and we want you to know that there is hope after all. Whether manual or automatic, heavy duty or low range, the transmission is a vital part at the center of your vehicle's drivetrain. Your transmission is instrumental in turning the engine's power into forward movement, so it's not surprising that problems with this important component can cripple your car. The experts at Sloan's Automotive have years of experience working on transmissions of all types and sizes. When everything grinds to a halt we have the skills to get you moving forward once more.
One of the easiest ways to avoid a large transmission repair bill is to flush the fluid according to the vehicle manufacturer's guidelines. Your transmission contains a lot of intricate moving parts which can deteriorate quickly if not properly lubricated. Sloan's Automotive's technicians can take a sample of your transmission fluid and determine how long it will be before it's time to renew. When that time comes, we can have you in and out of the shop quickly.
Sometimes our technicians don't get to look at the problem until after something has gone wrong. While this is certainly more serious than a simple transmission fluid change, it doesn't have to spell disaster. At Sloan's Automotive, our expert technicians can carefully disassemble your transmission, identify any faults, and determine whether repairs can be made or not. We utilize an extensive network of parts suppliers, manufacturer knowledge, and expert repair skills to get your transmission repaired, and your vehicle back on the roads of Orlando, FL.
At its most basic, your car's clutch allows the engine and gearbox to engage and disengage from each other between gear changes. This means that although the engine's output shaft is still spinning, there is no load on the gears which may cause them to shift improperly. Once the next gear is smoothly selected your clutch will re-engage the engine and gearbox, resuming forward momentum. Over time, and especially in improperly operated manual transmission vehicles, the clutch can become worn and less effective at its job. A damaged clutch can allow the engine and gearbox to re-engage mid-gear change, and this can have serious effects on the health of your transmission. Sloan's Automotive determines the health of your clutch through diagnostic testing as well as test driving. As with a transmission fluid flush, we'll have your car back on the road and your peace of mind stretching for miles.
Another area of our gear-based expertise is your car's differentials. These sit in the middle of your car's axles between the wheels and are vital for a smooth ride. As you turn a corner, the outside wheel has to travel a greater distance than the inside wheel. Without properly functioning differentials, the wheels would turn at the same rate causing your car to vibrate horribly, and struggle to turn whenever you tried to go around a corner. When it comes to examining, diagnosing, and fixing faulty differentials, our experience with transmissions makes Sloan's Automotive the best place to go in Orlando, FL.
Avoid transmission disaster by coming in and having your transmission, clutch, and differentials checked out today. Call us at 407-228-7889 or visit us in Orlando, FL so we can schedule an appointment to ensure your car is in tip-top shape!
Our competitively priced transmission services include:
Automatic Transmissions shift between gears automatically to optimize driving, and changes gears based on the driver's throttle pedal, vehicle speed, engine speed, and vehicle load. Typical automatic transmissions have 4-5 forward gear ratios, a Reverse, Park, and Neutral gear. Shifting gears occur automatically once the car is in Drive and there is no need for a clutch pedal or gear shift like there is in a Manual Transmission. Automatic transmission repair is complicated based on all the components that make it up, and you need to have any automatic transmission issues properly assessed by auto mechanics. Call 407-228-7889 to talk to the mechanics of Sloan's Automotive about your transmission problems.
There are clutches in both automatic and manual transmission cars, and different types of clutches. When shifting gears, the clutch engages and disengages from the flywheel and transfers the torque through the transmission. Clutches should help your vehicle start and shift gears smoothly. The clutch in your car receives a lot of wear and can eventually wear out. If your clutch begins slipping irregularly or is making noises that are raising suspicion, contact Sloan's Automotive to see if clutch replacement is necessary.
Four-Wheel Drive Transmission
A four-wheel (4x4) drive vehicle has differential gears, both front and rear axles, and a transfer case attached to the transmission. Four-wheel drive vehicles demand maintenance on the transfer case, front differentials, rear differentials, and transmission fluids. Visit us on 1703 E Michigan St for service on your four-wheel drive transmission services.
Front-Wheel Drive Transmission
If your vehicle has Front-wheel drive, the engine drives the front wheels only. The power is routed through the transmission to the final drive where it is split and sent to the two front wheels through the drive axles. The engine, transmission, and additional hardware is all located in the front of the car. If you are in need, Sloan's Automotive of Orlando, FL will gladly repair front-wheel drive transmission vehicles.
Driving a vehicle with a Manual Transmission requires using the clutch pedal and gear shift to manually shift gears based on the speed of the vehicle. Manual transmissions have been built with anywhere from two to eight gears. Front-wheel drive and rear-wheel drive are the two main configurations for manual transmissions. Typically, manual transmissions require less maintenance then automatic transmissions. At Sloan's Automotive, our auto mechanics can diagnose your vehicle and then recommend the transmission repair or transmission service you need to ensure safety and improve the lifetime of your vehicle.
In motor vehicles, the transmission usually refers to the gear box, which uses gears and gear trains to transmit speed and tourque from a rotating power source to another device. You can have your car's transmission replaced with a new, rebuilt, remanufactured, repaired or used transmission. For more information contact Sloan's Automotive in Orlando, FL. Our experienced service technicians can help you make the best decision for your vehicle and your wallet.
Service, Diagnose and Repair
Transmission repair is not something to take lightly. The transmission is connected to key parts of your vehicle and needs to be working properly for your safety. Transmission services include replacing filters and draining fluids to prevent transmission damage. Typical transmission issues that may lead to repair may include shifting issues, slipping, stalling, fluid leaking, and the service light turning on. If you are concerned that you may need transmission repair, don't hesitate to schedule an appointment at Sloan's Automotive today.
A transfer case is a part of a four wheel drive system found in four wheel drive and all wheel drive vehicles. The transfer case receives power from the transmission and sends it to both the front and rear axles. This can be done with a set of gears, but the majority of transfer cases manufactured today are chain driven. The transfer case is connected to the transmission and also to the front and rear axles by means of drive shafts.Trust the automotive experts at Sloan's Automotive for all your transmission repairs.

Always friendly, knowledgeable, and fair. Best service in town. I LOVE that they give back to the community.
I love these guys! They take care of you and always have smiles on their faces. The expertise of their work, the timeliness of the work done and the trust is important to me and they accomplish all of that. Thanks to Kenny, Will, Jim and Terry and those whose names I don't know but do an awesome job!
The work needed is presented with upfront and honest information. They diagnosed issues specific to the problems I went in for, nothing more. Also seems like a trusted neighborhood resource for a lot of DIYers who couldn't complete work in their driveway. Trustworthy.
Excellent service. I was calling for an inspection on a vehicle 2000 miles away. It?s a first car for my son and they made me comfortable that everything was in good working order and a safe vehicle. Kind good people- highly recommended!
I came here to Sloan's to get my car looked at. I'm beyond impressed! Will, the gentleman who was at the counter treated me with the greatest costumer service. He was friendly, knowledgeable and funny! Their bathroom was unbelievably clean and smelled great! Very woman friendly! I recommend Sloan's to everyone needing their car fixed!
I have been using these guys now for almost 10 years. Just when you think they have done their best for you they step it up again. On the way to sell my van it breaks down. the sale hangs in the balance. Call Kenny and in 6 hours its towed repaired and ready to go. He stayed late on his time to fix it. Where you going get that service? Nowhere but here. Thank you guys. Can't say enough. My Shop for auto repair. 10+.
Great service, honest and do a great job communicating with you on progress of your vehicle. I like getting a copy of the diagnostic sent to me through text via a link.
Great place to get a car serviced. The office area was nice and welcoming. Every encounter I had with an employee was a great experience. Honest and reliable work. I really appreciate their hospitality.
The shop is always clean, Prices are reasonable, Staff is always pleasant -- would highly recommend!
Always honest and prices are fair. They quickly fixed an A/C issue that two other garages and the dealer couldn't figure out. They get all my work and my referrals.
Fair, transparent, friendly, efficient, accommodating. All words not commonly associated with mechanics, Sloan's embodies them. It's always a pleasure to see Jim, and this shop is always busy (a good sign)! Last time I went for a diagnostic and oil change, I grabbed a bite next door at the Fillin' station. Done in an hour.
Friendly, helpful & reasonably priced. I would recommend to family, friends & associates.
Very honest and trustworthy. Was upfront about a potentially costly repair, but when an easier route worked out, they let me know and I ended up with a much cheaper option. Very happy with their service and communication. I'd use these mechanics again in a heartbeat.
Professional and certified. Quality shop to take your vehicle to, especially if you plan to keep it long term. They assess problems especially well and discuss all solutions with you ahead of time. Highly recommend!
Excellent Service! Very Reliable & Knowledgeable Team! Will recommend Sloan's Automotive to ALL my family and friends! Thank you :)
First time customer with an immediate and unscheduled vehicle problem. I initially chatted online with Sloan?s, and from then on received excellent treatment, clear communication, and successful repairs were completed by COB the following day. Diagnosis was first sent to me via email, with a follow up call. Necessary work was identified, with other less critical issues deferred for another day. At checkout, the charges were exactly as specified in the initial conversation, and the vehicle has performed very well since. Sloan?s earned more business from my four-car family with this engagement.
Highly recommended! Responsible, honest people and high quality service, I can safely say you will not be let down. If Kenny or Jim or anyone at Sloan's sees this please give a big hug to Ann from Raquel and me! We're in New Orleans now and the car has had no issues at all. Thanks to all the team!
My entire family has been HUGE fans for the better part of 20 years! Great service and people! Highly recommend!!!!!
