If you think it’s time to have your transmission checked or feel you may have a transmission problem, it’s important to schedule an appointment at AAMCO in Plano, Texas as soon as possible. If you put off a transmission service or repair, you can definitely expect costlier repairs down the road. Replacing a transmission or repairing parts of a transmission can cost several thousands of dollars, so at the first sign of transmission trouble, please contact AAMCO, so we can get you in at your earliest possible convenience.
One of the reasons AAMCO has been such a highly respected name in the automotive repair industry for so long is that we’re known for using only high-quality parts, and we never install unnecessary parts (or junkyard parts) in the vehicles we service and repair. When you drive off the lot at AAMCO, you know your repairs will be backed by a no-questions-asked nationwide warranty, which means that no matter where you are in the country, AAMCO service centers will honor your car’s warranty whether it’s a 90-day warranty, 12-month warranty or one of our longer warranties.
Expert Diagnosis for Expert Repair
To accurately assess what is wrong with your car, AAMCO uses the most advanced technology available today. Our exclusive TranScan diagnostic includes:

- Downshift timing and quality
- Passing gear
- TCC engagement
- 4×4 performance

At AAMCO of Plano, our diagnostic includes much more than checking your car’s transmission. We will scan the computer for trouble codes, and your vehicle will be placed on a lift to look for any possible cause of the problem external to the transmission including:
- Shift linkage or cable
- Vacuum connections
- Wire condition
- TV/detent cable/linkage
- Harness connections
- Ground connections
- Engine performance
- Engine idle
- Final drive
- Axles and shafts

AAMCO in Plano has access to numerous proprietary tools that help us to identify problems that may not be available at other automotive shops. Many transmission problems start when your transmission receives the wrong signals from your vehicle’s computer system, so we assess your car’s computer system with the exclusive AAMCO Computer Diagnostic Service, which includes:
- A scan that checks all critical computer systems in the vehicle for trouble codes. A variety of systems could cause drivability issues, and we want to check them all to find the true cause of your problem.
- We then run the results against the most extensive transmission computer diagnostic source available anywhere: our proprietary AAMCO technical database.
- We can also check to see whether the problem is inside or outside of the transmission using the AAMCO Kwiktest™ PlusBox.
Your certified AAMCO center technician will also attempt to track down any electronic component or part that needs replacing by:
- Checking the electronic components
- Checking the solenoids and sensors
- Checking the wiring to and from the transmission, solenoids and sensors
