Should Engine Knocking Or Pinging Sound Concern Me?
Trans Tech Auto & Truck can understand why our customers in the greater Colorado Springs area would wonder if the presence of a knocking, or pinging sound, coming from their vehicles' engines should be of concern. Trans Tech Auto & Truck tells our customers that the presence of an occasional engine knocking or pinging noise will not necessarily be harmful to the engine. Additionally when an engine pinging or knocking noise is heard in the engine it does not indicate a switch should be made to a gasoline with a higher octane level. But if the pinging or knocking in the engine becomes persistent or heavy, that knocking sound could be the indication of a more serious car engine problem and to avoid any damage we suggest our customers bring their vehicle to Trans Tech Auto & Truck and let a member of our skilled auto repair mechanic team inspect the engine knocking to avoid any potential to the vehicle's engine. Of course Trans Tech Auto & Truck invites you to schedule online.

"The repair work Trans Tech Transmissions on my 1997 Blazar made a great difference in the performance of the vehicle. It runs like brand new. The BEST repair shop in Colorado Springs. Thanks!"
I recently went to Trans TECH to get a routine oil change on my 02 Honda Odyssey. I was in and out in a very short amount of time. Because I work til 330 and cannot get to the shop by 4, Jim had me scheduled in and I arrived, gave him the key.

Our 2002 Pontiac Van is running like new - and we are grateful
Barbara Campbell of Fountain Colorado
"After looking through the yellow pages and checking the Better Business Bureau, we decided to get an estimate on repairing our transmission from Trans Tech Transmissions. While my husband was outside with Jim reviewing the problem in our van, I sat in the office for about 30 minutes observing Alex, their most efficient and courteous assistant at the front desk. I watched the way she happily greeted each walk-in customer; I listened to her kind and efficient demeanor on the phone, and became very aware of the way she spoke to each individual with knowledge of their problems and confidence in her employer and technicians. Alex was the first impression I had of Trans Tech, and she sold me on Trans Tech in those 30 minutes. When I walked outside and listened to Jim talking with my husband, I was once again convinced we had come to the right place. We had found an auto shop priding itself on excellent service, and one with moral integrity when it came to dealing with its customers. We were given a rental car paid for by Trans Tech for the three days it took to repair the transmission. The work was completed in the time frame quoted, and the price we paid was within the estimated cost provided before the work began. Our 2002 Pontiac Van is running like new - and we are grateful to have the opportunity to recommend Trans Tech. "
When I need mechanical work, I will go to Trans Tech Transmissions in Colorado Springs. I have found my trusted shop for all my repairs!
John Lang of Monument Colorado
"My 2000 Chevy Blazer was in need of some major repairs. After taking it to another shop for the last 7 years, I was in need of a better solution to all the problems that my previous mechanic did not find or repair. Jim and his staff at Trans Tech Auto & Truck are very professional and took great care of me. I was shocked to find out that my previous repair shop had missed a very dangerous condition, that if it had not been found on my repair visit to Trans Tech Auto & Truck, I could well have been seriously injured had they not found the problem while doing the engine work on my Chevy S10 Blazer. My previous mechanic had neglected to find that the front drive shaft was about to break even though they had checked the car at least 4 times for a very bad vibration in the front end. Jim and the staff at Trans Tech Auto & Truck noticed it the first time they test drove the vehicle.. This I can tell you, a tire shop is not your specialty auto repair mechanic. Take your car to Trans Tech Auto & Truck in Colorado Springs. They know what to look for and just don't make a guess. They are experts. From now on when I need tires, I will visit a tire dealer. When I need mechanical work, I will go to Trans Tech Transmissions in Colorado Springs. I have found my trusted shop for all my repairs!"

I can't tell you how pleased I am with Jim and everyone at Trans Tech Transmissions in Colorado Springs.

Frank Martinez of Colorado Springs Colorado
"I can't tell you how pleased I am with Jim and everyone at Trans Tech Transmissions in Colorado Springs. I had the transmission on my 2003 Hummer rebuilt back in Sept. 2012. The transmission rebuild performed by Trans Tech Transmissions was done on time and to my satisfaction. On a road trip to the Pacific Northwest, the new front planetary failed, causing me to lose all forward gears. This happened in the middle of Boise, Idaho between the Christmas and New Year holiday. Unfortunately, Trans Tech Transmissions was closed for that week, and I was not able to talk with Jim at Trans Tech Transmissions. The local shop there took advantage of me. They convinced me that the only remedy was to have another rebuilt transmission installed, or wait a week in Boise till we could contact Trans Tech Transmissions. I requested all broken parts be returned to me, and had them replace the transmission. Long story short, when I returned home, I paid a visit to Jim at Trans Tech Transmissions in Colorado Springs to explain what happened, and presented him with the failed front planetary and a torque converter that the shop had given me in Boise. While doing additional work on my Hummer, Jim and his technicians found that the Boise shop had never actually replaced the transmission. They had simply replaced the front planetary which would have been about a $300 part, yet they had charged me for a complete transmission rebuild. Oh by the way, there was nothing wrong with the torque converter either. Jim has special shop ID stamp that was found on the transmission that was supposedly replaced. The staff at Trans Tech Transmissions went out of their way to make up for what the unscrupuous shop in Boise pulled on me. Trans Tech Transmissions operates by the ATRA golden rule and even though he had no opportunity do anything to help me for what had been done to me in another state. He took care of me. That's why I highly recommend going to Trans Tech Transmissions in Colorado Springs for any repairs you need. They run an honest shop. You won't be disappointed."
The staff of Trans Tech Transmissions are fine examples for all small auto repair businesses in Colorado Springs.

"I would like to take this opportunity to express my thanks to the owner and technicians of Trans Tech Transmissions in Colorado Springs. These fine people did some work on my car, which could have cost around $200 for parts and labor. However, when repair technician checked the problem out, they found that a part was simply connected in the wrong place. They reconnected the part correctly, thus fixing the problem, and only charged me the shipping cost that they incurred in ordering the replacement part in advance (at my request) - $24. Trans Tech Transmissions could have decided to replace the part even though I didn't need it, or worse, just said they replaced the part and charged me the entire $200. But they were honest with me. I appreciate their integrity. The staff of Trans Tech Transmissions in Colorado Springs are fine examples for all small auto repair businesses in the Pikes Peak region. My hat's off to them. "
