Quality Transmission Service
5944 Arsenal St, Saint Louis, MO 63139
I rolled into Quality Transmission as a last ditch effort to see if they could diagnose shifting issues I was having with my Ranger, this, just four days after having the clutch replaced. Thinking major transmission issues were on the horizon, I was toying with the idea of not dropping anymore money into this vehicle and just purchasing something else.
Pat had Gary look at the problem and he quickly figured out it wasn't the tranny at all but a known issue of Ford hydraulic clutch systems being very difficult to bleed, hence, air was in the system causing loss of clutch functionality. Gary spent over an hour bleeding the system and checking it out. In the end...shifting was back to normal and as smooth as silk. After Pat presented me with the bill I almost couldn't believe what he was charging based on the time spent. I'd say I stole the service with how cheap it was. I still don't know why he charged so little but I appreciate it.
While waiting for service to be completed Pat took numerous phone calls and could easily diagnose transmission issues over the phone for people. I think he keeps a "little black book" with crib notes. A mechanic who can do this, and be right, saves everyone time and money.
As an engineer I know my limitations and typically do all my own truck repairs, however, I some cases I know when to leave things to the pros. I'm adding Quality Transmission to my list of preferred places when I need transmission work performed. Thanks again QTS!
