In-House Transmission Rebuilds

Our facility has a certified technician on-site for rebuilding. During a rebuild service, your transmission is inspected and any worn or faulty parts are replaced while the working parts remain intact.

  • New vs Rebuilt Transmissions: A rebuilt transmission is a cost-effective option verses the purchase and installation of a new transmission. You get to keep your vehicle in operation with updated transmission parts where necessary.
  • Used vs Rebuilt Transmissions: When looking at used transmissions, it's important to consider the mileage already on it and the current condition of its parts . With a rebuilt transmission, you know any bad parts have been replaced.

If you're experiencing transmission problems, bring your vehicle in for a diagnostic. We identify the cause of the problem and review your options with you to ensure you make an informed decision on transmission repair, rebuilding, and replacement services. Our technicians service both automatic and manual transmissions.

Transfer Case Repair

The transfer case is responsible for transferring power from the transmission to the front and rear axles of your vehicle. Switching flawlessly from two wheel drive to four wheel drive requires a working transfer case. If you experience any of the following, you may have a transfer case problem.

Common Transfer Case Problems

  • Trouble Shifting Gears: When a transfer case fluid leak is present, shifting gears becomes harder.
  • Loss of 4WD: If you can't engage four wheel drive at all, you should have the transfer case inspected
  • Grinding Noise: When you hear grinding under your vehicle, there could be a problem with the transfer case

Bring your vehicle in for a transfer case diagnostic and repair service. It's important to keep your vehicle in proper operating condition for safety and overall vehicle life.

Differential Repair

Transmission, Transfer Cases & Differential Repair in San Gabriel Valley, CA

Whenever you make a turn, you have your differential to thank for making it possible for the wheels to rotate at different speeds. This is important because the wheels on the inside of the turn have less distance to go than the wheels on the outside of the turn. 

For proper operation and extended component life, it's important to keep your differential lubricated. Over time, the differential oil will become dirty and less efficient. Hearing a whining sound can be a sign that your differential fluid needs to be replaced.

Other problem signs include hearing a clunking noise or howl that could indicate a problem with the gears or other parts. Any noise from the differential or drivetrain should be inspected by a trusted automotive service provider. 

Star Tire provides front and rear differential repair and maintenance.
