At Sunstate Auto Repair LLC, 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 Sunstate Auto Repair LLC 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. Sunstate Auto Repair LLC'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 Sunstate Auto Repair LLC, 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 Winter Park, 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. Sunstate Auto Repair LLC 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 Sunstate Auto Repair LLC the best place to go in Winter Park, FL.
Avoid transmission disaster by coming in and having your transmission, clutch, and differentials checked out today. Call us at 407-601-7798 or visit us in Winter Park, 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 407-601-7798 to talk to the mechanics of Sunstate Auto Repair LLC 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 Sunstate Auto Repair LLC 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 3951 Forsyth Rd Unit B-3 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, Sunstate Auto Repair LLC of Winter Park, 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 Sunstate Auto Repair LLC, 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 Sunstate Auto Repair LLC in Winter Park, FL. Our experienced service technicians can help you make the best decision for your vehicle and your wallet.

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 Sunstate Auto Repair LLC for all your transmission repairs.
Henry is the most honest and hardworking mechanic that I've ever met...After the first visit, I knew I had found my mechanic...He goes above and beyond to run tests to ensure that he fixes your car the right way the first time. He even went to bat for me with the parts manufacturer to have a faulty part covered under a warranty that had expired. I probably couldn't tell you how much time and money he has saved me. He was even nice enough to call my dad to explain the repairs as I'm not well-versed in car mechanics. Henry comes with my highest recommendation if you're looking for a skilled, friendly, and honest mechanic in the Orlando area.
This may not sound like a big deal but they did exactly what they said they would do. Gave me an estimate. It was accurate. Gave me a time they would contact me regarding the work being complete. They had it done right when they said they would. The job they were to do was done exactly as specified. No surprises. Just honest work.
Henry is the most honest, reliable mechanic I've ever met in my life. He has been the family mechanic for years now and I recommend all of my family, friends, and coworkers to him. I cannot say enough positive things about him or Sunstate Auto Repair!
I can tell you from personal experience over the last 15 years using Sunstate Auto that Henry is the best and most honest mechanic you will ever find. I drive out of my way to bring my vehicles to Henry because I trust no one else he has found things that others have missed and he continually tries to look for ways to save me money while keeping me safe. Thank you Henry for all you have done!
I am SO glad a friend recommended SunState Auto to me. Henry really makes you feel at ease and taken care of when it comes to car issues. I have finally found my honest mechanic in Orlando. I recommend you do too.
Came in on a few occasions I run my own business that involves having to have a vehicle. He always seems really genuine and gives great advice. Best around I always travel to him no matter where I'm at. One of the best and actually cares.
I will definitely be returning for my auto needs for as long as I live near the Winter Park area. Went in for a front and rear brake overhaul and Henry had it done the same day, even staying over the posted closing time to make sure I was back on the road. Very down-to-earth, knowledgeable, and super helpful with setting up a financing plan. I highly highly recommend coming here if you need any auto servicing.
Henry does an awesome job of keeping my cars running well. I extremely recommend him for vehicle service.
I'm in Ohio and my son is in the Orlando area for school. He was having issues and took his car to a dealership which quoted him over $2k. I did some research and found Sunstate. They had excellent review so I gave them a call. I am so grateful to Henry and his crew. He was honest and explained everything. They fixed my sons car same day for under $600. Thank you!! I warms my heart that there are still good honest car repair shops out there.
We've been going to Henry for almost 10 years now on all our family vehicles. You cannot find a more honest, genuine and quality mechanic. Henry makes auto repair and maintenance both hassle and stress free. Not to mention that no shop comes close to his pricing. Thank you Henry for your continued service and support. Henry got our troublesome 2005 Honda Pilot in shape to drive to and from San Francisco, CA in less than a week - where the majority of the time we were simply waiting for parts to arrive. Look no further - Henry is your man!
Great service, I felt that the staff and services were honest and true. They FaceTime for any suprises that they found and were able to show me what additional items needed service in real time. Great work!
