The easiest way to maintain peak performance and fuel economy is to provide regular transmission maintenance for your vehicle.

Transmission Replacement
In motor vehicles, the transmission usually refers to the gear box, which uses gears and gear trains to transmit speed and torque 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 Poway's Precision Automotive in Poway, CA. Our experienced service technicians can help you make the best decision for your vehicle and your wallet.

Transmission Repair
Our services include transmission repair on both manual and automatic transmissions. The first step in getting you back on the road is assessing your transmission to accurately determine the source of the problem. In some cases, we are able to repair your transmission simply with adjustments, replacing external seals, or replacing accessible parts. To have this done by specialists, call 858-486-4444 to talk to the mechanics of Poway's Precision Automotive today.

Transmission Flush
Although most manufacturers recommend a transmission flush every 30,000 miles or every two years, some symptoms may indicate that you need a transmission flush sooner. Some of the symptoms that indicate that your car needs a transmission flush sooner are: transmission grinding or strange noises, problems shifting gears, slipping gears, surging of the car, and delay in vehicle movement. Flushing the used fluid from the transmission washes away tiny particles of dirt, clutch material, and metal shavings. For all your transmission flush needs, call 858-486-4444 or visit Poway's Precision Automotive today - we are transmission experts.

Cylinder Head
A cylinder head is the closed end of a cylinder (located in a car's engine block). It sits above the cylinder block, closing the top of the cylinder and forming the combustion chamber. The cylinder head coordinates airflow in and out of the engine. Since the cylinder head's chief function is to seal the cylinders properly, insufficient compression results in the car being difficult to drive. To have your cylinder head checked and repaired, talk to Poway's Precision Automotive's cylinder head repair and reconditioning specialists today.

Timing Belt
A timing belt is a part of your car's internal combustion engine. The belt synchronizes the camshaft and the crankshaft rotation so that the engine valves open and close at the correct timings. Also, the belt prevents the piston from striking the valves in an interference engine. A timing Belt is a rubber belt that usually features teeth on the inside surface, while a timing chain is a metal roller chain. Most cars we drive now have timing belts instead of timing chains and gears. Although different manufacturers have their recommended mileage, you need to have your car's timing belt checked regularly. To have it checked by experts, contact Poway's Precision Automotive today.

Cylinder Block
A cylinder block is the powerhouse for the motor vehicle. The solid cast car part houses the cylinders and their components (gaskets, valves, and seals) inside a lubricated and cooled crankcase. Since it is one of the most important parts of your car, the block is designed to be extremely strong and sturdy. Although strong and sturdy, the block is susceptible to failure resulting in a vehicle that won't start. Cracked blocks, porous blocks, core plug, or freeze plug failure are some of the problems facing cylinder blocks. Call 858-486-4444 to talk to the mechanics of Poway's Precision Automotive about your cylinder block problems.

-ANNETTE S

I would like to say that precision came recommended as the place to go for an alignment. I called and made an appointment for today. I got there 30 min. early and was able to get right in. Mike was the service tech and Jay assisted me at the desk. It only took 45 minutes and that included a tire rotation. The car is now perfect again, There are a couple of minor repairs they would recommend but there was no pressure from them. I am going to go back and have some other work done very soon. Just wanted to give Jay and Mike a huge THANK YOU for being professional and respectful of my time and money.


-Robert Hehman

I came here when my brakes were making noise. they inspected the brake system and the rest of the entire car for free and told me exactly what needed to be done. they even brought me into the shop to show me the worn parts on my car. i opted to take my car back so i could shop around before i committed to buying anything from them. they ended up having the cheapest estimate and got the job done while i waited in the lobby. great service, nice guys, and quality work. will definitely be coming back here.


-John M. - Encinitas, CA

If you want exceptional service by a caring team of people that are honest and up front - then this is the place for you. I plan on being a long term customer - Dirk & Jimmy made me feel like family and were able to help me right away. A pleasure to work with any day of the week. Kenny who worked on my car took time to answer my questions thoroughly - nothing bad to say about this team. Will send as many referrals as I can. Thanks again for the great service.


-Karen K. - San Diego, CA

Love this shop! Trustworthy and honest guys :-). Have been going here for a few years now and wouldn't trust my car with anyone else!! Thanks for your hard work guys! Funny reading some of these reviews ... Really goes to show you can't please everyone!


-Danielle M. - Escondido, CA

I took my car here for a smog check. I called for an appointment and they were ready for me at the appointed time. I ambled over from the waiting area to the inspection area and the mechanics were not irked by my presence. They chatted amiably with me while going about their tasks. The mechanics were very thorough and did not seem to be handling the car roughly. The inspection was completed in a reasonable time. The manager and mechanics are courteous and friendly. The only reason it's not a 5-star is because I had printed out a coupon from their website, but was still charged a little over the price on the coupon. Still, I'd definitely go back for the quality of service and customer care.


-Sreejith G. - San Diego, CA

I was referred here for and alignment and scheduled an appointment. The place was easy to find with a large sign off the main road. When I arrived they gave me an estimate and told me the work would take a couple of hours. One of the guys mentioned a shopping center near by. It has a coffee shop, some eateries - even a movie theater, and took about a 10 min walk to get to. My car was done when they said it would be, and the cost was as estimated. The staff was great, - friendly and professional. A few weeks later I returned to have some recommended repairs done and had the same great experience.


-Lynn M. - San Diego, CA

Thanks to the skillful way problems were diagnosed and repairs made, our 1998 Chevy pickup truck performed well on our return trip to FL.
