Transmission Repair

What service are you looking for?

Transmission Repair

Routine vehicle transmission repair and maintenance is especially important in Alaska. Our extreme temperature fluctuations degrade the lubricating properties of transmission fluids and gear oil, which leaves this major vehicle component vulnerable to excessive wear and premature failure. These systems require monitoring during the year, but especially in the winter. 

At METRO, we make it our business to maintain cars for the Fairbanks climate. This differentiates us from other shops. Proactive transmission maintenance is the best way to save time and money.

Transmission Repair Fairbanks, AK

Transmission replacement is an expensive fix. If a transmission has been abused by excessive hauling or shifting under load, we will diagnose the problem. If possible we use a local rebuilder who takes pride in his work.

Problem Area



If you’re having shifting problems, here are a few preliminary symptoms to consider:

  • Vehicle hesitates after shifting
  • Sluggish shifts
  • Grinding between gears
  • Transmission fluid leaking or dirty
  • Smell of burned rubber/ceramic
  • Bitter smell of burned dish soap

  • Contact Metropolitan Garage For Your Transmission Repair

    Most of us need a car or truck to get around, and very few of us believe we have the time to take our vehicles in for regular maintenance. But deferring maintenance, especially on a transmission, and especially in the Fairbanks climate, can quickly lead to costly and time-consuming repairs.

    Scheduled maintenance by one of our trained and certified mechanics results in big savings and peace of mind. We’re committed to providing the best, most customized service for your transmission.
