ENGINE MAINTENANCE

Engine maintenance is vital to keep your car or truck operating at peak performance. It also impacts the longevity of your vehicle's engine. Trust the experts at Trans International Transmissions to help you protect your investment. Call us at 713-861-3131 or visit our shop in Houston 77009.

These are some of the engine maintenance services we offer.

Fuel Injection
Fuel injection is a system for admitting fuel into an engine. Since 1990, fuel injectors have completely replaced carburetors as the primary means of getting gasoline into the engine. A fuel injector atomizes the fuel by forcibly pumping it through a small nozzle (under high pressure). Failure of the fuel injection system means poor performance and ultimately destroys the engine. Make sure your vehicle's fuel injection system is maintained properly. For all your fuel injection maintenance and replacement needs, call 713-861-3131 or visit Trans International Transmissions today.

Ignition
An ignition system is a system for igniting (using an electric spark) a mixture of fuel and air in a gasoline engine. A properly working ignition system means a properly starting engine and high performance from your car. For all your ignition system maintenance and replacement needs, call or visit Trans International Transmissions today.

Ignition Wires & Cables
Ignition cables also known as spark plug wires are an important part of your car's ignition system. They transfer the spark from the ignition coil to spark plugs that ignite the mixture of fuel and air. The mixture starts the engine. Over time, ignition wires and cables get weak and break down. This makes it impossible for the spark to reach the engine cylinders. This results in the engine misfiring. The car will eventually fail to start. If it does start, it will run poorly. Common symptoms of faulty ignition cables and wires are: poor gas mileage, engine misfires, engine light is on, and engine may vibrate. If your car needs new ignition cables and wires, call or visit Trans International Transmissions in Houston, TX 77009. Here, you will have the wires and cables changed by a top-rated mechanic.

Spark Plugs
A spark plug delivers electric current to the combustion chamber from the ignition system. Spark plugs that haven't been changed for a long time can cause ignition problems. At Trans International Transmissions, we have automotive experts who will check and replace your spark plugs. For all your spark plug repair or replacement needs, call 713-861-3131 or visit Trans International Transmissions today.

Oil, Lube, and Filter
To keep running smoothly, your car highly relies on oil, lube, and oil filters. Oil helps in lubricating, cooling, and cleaning the internal engine components. With time, motor oil becomes contaminated. Your car needs an oil, lube, and filter change every three months (or 3,000 miles). When it is time for a lube, oil, or filter change, take your vehicle to Trans International Transmissions in Houston, TX 77009.

Check Engine Light
No one likes to see their car's "Check Engine" light come on. The light could mean a costly problem, like a bad catalytic converter, or it could be something minor, like a loose gas cap. At Trans International Transmissions, we can pull the code and diagnose the problem for you. Give us a call at 713-861-3131 or stop by the shop for our expert assistance.

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.
