We repair and rebuild truck transmissions for all foreign, domestic , heavy duty trucks, 4x4s, pickup trucks and RVs.
Small trucks use the same type of transmissions as almost all cars, having either an automatic or a manual transmission.
Bigger trucks often use manual transmissions without synchronizers, saving bulk and weight, although synchromesh transmissions are used in larger trucks as well.
Transmissions without synchronizers, known as "crash boxes", require double-clutching for each shift, (which can lead to repetitive motion injuries), or a technique known colloquially as "floating", a method of changing gears which doesn't use the clutch, except for starts and stops, due to the physical effort of double clutching, especially with non power assisted clutches, faster shifts, and less clutch wear.
We offer transmission service! With proper maintenance you can prevent costly truck repairs. Just like the oil in your truck needs to be clean, so does your transmission fluid.
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

Common North American setups include 9, 10, 13, 15, and 18 speeds.
Automatic and semi-automatic transmissions for heavy trucks are becoming more and more common, due to advances both in transmission and engine power. In Europe, 8, 10, 12 and 16 gears are common on larger trucks with manual transmission, while automatic or semi-automatic transmissions would have anything from 5 to 12 gears.
Almost all heavy truck transmissions are of the "range and split" (double H shift pattern) type, where range change and so called half gears or splits are air operated and always preselected before the main gear selection.

Ford-O-Matic was the first automatic transmission widely used by Ford Motor Company. It was designed by Borg Warner Corporation and introduced in 1951 model year cars. The three-speed Ford-O-Matic evolved into the "MX" and "FX" or Cruise-O-Matic transmissions in 1958 and the FMX in 1968.
The C Series was a line of pickup trucks sold by Chrysler's Dodge division from 1954 to 1960. It replaced the Dodge B Series of trucks and was eventually supplanted by the Dodge D Series, introduced in 1961.
Unlike the B Series, which were closely related to Dodge's prewar trucks, the C Series was a complete redesign.
Dodge continued the "pilot house" tradition of high-visibility cabs with a wraparound windshield introduced in 1955. A two-speed "PowerFlite" automatic transmission was newly available that year.
