Makes and Models

Situated on Emmanuel Street just on the corner of Blackpool Road, in Preston many people drive past our workshop everyday without realising that they have just passed one of the largest vehicle repair workshops in the North West. We repair all makes and models of automatic gearboxes including on prestigious brands such as Bentley, Rolls Royce, and old and imported cars, such as American Muscle Cars. If you look on our Facebook page you will see hundreds of photos of repairs that we have undertaken. We can be contacted on 01772 259068

We also repair all general brands such as Ford, Nissan, Vauxhall, Peugeot, Renault, Citroen and we are seeing a large number of Nissan Juke gearbox repairs due to a serious issue with their automatic boxes.

With 10 ramps, an 11,000 square foot workshop and a combined experience of over 100 years, automatic Transmissions (Preston) are larger and better equipped than most main dealerships and we are certainly much more competitive on price.

Getting a repair done is the best thing you can do for your gearbox, but we often find that other mechanics are unable to repair automatic gearboxes and as a result they typically charge £3000 plus for a replacement part. As a skilled engineering firm specialising in the repair of automatic gearboxes for over 40 years, we can usually strip the faulty gearbox down and repair it to such a high standard that we typically offer warranties to the same length as the main dealerships.

If you are looking to get a transmission repair then give us a call today on 01772 259 068 to ensure that you get the best service and value for money possible.

As you will see on the map, we are based within 10 minutes of the M6 and M55 motorways. As such, people from Manchester, Liverpool, Bolton, Wigan, Lancaster, Carlisle, Penrith and all northern cities can get to us within an hour or less. Remember, if your vehicle won’t drive we can come and collect it for a small expense.


We are the only FATE member in Preston and as such, we are the only firm to be a member of a nationally recognised body, dedicated to the science and craft of automatic gearbox repair. If your gearbox is broken, we can guarantee to fix it.
