  • Vehicle tips

    • According to recent studies, 5 percent of all motor vehicle fatalities are clearly caused by automobile maintenance neglect.
    • The cooling system should be completely flushed and refilled about every 24 months. The level, condition, and concentration of coolant should be checked. (A 50/50 mix of anti-freeze and water is usually recommended.)
    • Never remove the radiator cap until the engine has thoroughly cooled. The tightness and condition of drive belts, clamps and hoses should be checked by a pro.
    • Change your oil and oil filter as specified in your manual, or more often (every 3,000 miles) if you make frequent short jaunts, extended trips with lots of luggage or tow a trailer.
    • Replace other filters (air, fuel, PCV, etc.) as recommended, or more often in dusty conditions. Get engine drivability problems (hard stops, rough idling, stalling, diminished power, etc.) corrected at a good shop.
    • A dirty windshield causes eye fatigue and can pose a safety hazard. Replace worn blades and get plenty of windshield washer solvent.
    • Have your tires rotated about every 5,000 miles. Check tire pressures once a month; let the tires cool down first. Don't forget your spare and be sure your jack is in good condition.
    • Check your owner's manual to find out what fuel octane rating your car's engine needs then buy it.
    • Keep your tires inflated to the proper levels. Under-inflated tires make it harder for your car to move down the road, which means your engine uses more fuel to maintain speed.
    • Lighten the load. Heavier vehicles use more fuel, so clean out unnecessary weight in the passenger compartment or trunk before you hit the road.
    • Use the A/C sparingly. The air conditioner puts extra load on the engine forcing more fuel to be used.
    • Keep your windows closed. Wide-open windows, especially at highway speeds, increase aerodynamic drag and the result is up to a 10% decrease in fuel economy.
    • Avoid long idling. If you anticipate being stopped for more than one minute, shut off the car. Contrary to popular belief, restarting the car uses less fuel than letting it idle.
    • Stay within posted speed limits. The faster you drive, the more fuel you use. For example, driving at 65 miles per hour (mph) rather than 55 mph, increases fuel consumption by 20 percent.
    • Use cruise control. Using cruise control on highway trips can help you maintain a constant speed and, in most cases, reduce your fuel consumption.
    • Keep your engine tuned. A fouled spark plug or plugged/restricted fuel injector can reduce fuel efficiency as much as 30 percent.
    • Inspect the engine's belts regularly. Look for cracks or missing sections or segments. Worn belts will affect the engine performance.
    • Have the fuel filter changed every 10,000 miles to prevent rust, dirt and other impurities from entering the fuel system.
    • Change the transmission fluid and filter every 15,000 to 18,000 miles. This will protect the precision-crafted components of the transmission/transaxle.
    • Inspect the suspension system regularly. This will extend the life of the vehicle's tires.

    Testimonials

    • By far the most genuine and best in the business. Jorge is probably the best mechanic in the Houston area. I had him fix a timing chain gear for me about a year ago. First and foremost he's a trans specialist and was very happy to get my car running for me. I would recommend him HIGHLY over anyone else. He's a very caring and knowledgeable man, and I won't let anyone else touch my car. Thanks Jorge sincerely!
      -Mark G.

    • I took my Lexus to George based on a recommendation from a friend. From the moment I met George, I could tell he is an honest person. He rebuilt my engine, gave me a fair price and always kept me informed of the status of my repair. I would highly recommend him.
      -Laurence T.

    • Very thorough and honest shop. Will definitely be back for the excellent service I witnessed earlier today.
      -Trey B.

    • I took my car to Trans International Transmission for a transmission problem last December. I always call them if I have a problem in my car, and they always tell me what is the best to do and if they can do it. They repaired a transmission leak in 3 hours without an appointment!
      -Stella S.L.

    • I send all my transmission work to Jorge. He's one of the few mechanics I trust and can rely on. Super knowledgeable and gives honest recommendations.
      -Nene J.

    • Recently took my truck (2002 F150) to a dealer for a new transmission. Called Jorge at Trans International instead, and was able to have the work done for a fraction of the cost. I called a few transmission shops in the area and Jorge offered the best deal, not to mention was very helpful. They do a complete rebuild including the torque converter rather than replacing only what needs to be done. Jorge called me to let me know when their tow driver got the vehicle, when it was in the shop, and when it was going to be ready. Only took two days. Give them a call.
      -Guy

    • Myself and my family have used this business for the past two years. Quality work every time, and the price for work done is outstanding. Great customer service. Ask for Jorge - he is honest and very knowledgeable.
      -Heather W.

    • This is the only transmission shop that didn't pressure me to rebuild my trans because of 122,000 miles on it. Jorge, that's the guy to talk to, was very imformative and helpful. He walked me through everything that had to be done and kept his word. He fixed my transmision slippage and old problems the last mechanic left behind. I know I got a very good deal with quality work done. Thanks. I highly recommend this trans shop to anyone.
      -Julian F.

    • Great Staff! Easy to talk to, explains problem and has a Solution. Thanks!
