When faced with transmission concerns, it??s essential to find an excellent professional transmission shop with the expertise along with the required sophisticated tools and skills to diagnose, and repair your vehicle. Above all, find a reputable trans shop that??s been in business for many years and is a shop that stands behind their work. Equally important is a shop that completely understands the intricacies of today??s complex transmissions and can explain any problem in simple terms. Lastly, it??s important to find a shop that is fair as demonstrated by a large loyal customer base. Motortrans in Marlton NJ is such a shop.
Motortrans is a second generation transmission shop. John the owner, grew up around and fixing transmissions. Motortrans was recommended to me by a friend and lifetime Motortrans loyal customer. I am an engineer /home auto mechanic and I fix cars as a hobby. Trust me; I know cars and I know when to get expert help. For example, I purchase older BMW vehicles after previous owners have kicked the broken vehicles to the curb because of transmission problems. Motortrans repairs those transmissions to new running condition, restores the vehicles value, and then I have the pleasure of driving the ??ultimate driving machine? (at a bargain basement price) that will last for years.
Recently Motortrans rebuilt and repaired my kids 1994 BMW 740Il transmission. Beautiful car, now it runs like a dream! I rely on Motortrans for the most challenging repairs and in return, I receive quality workmanship at a fair price. Motortrans delivers professionalism, pride and quality workmanship. It is encouraging to know that machinery can be repaired, and as John the owner says, ??it??s just nuts and bolts?.
I highly recommend Motortrans for the reasons stated above and because I trust their years of expertise. It is a reality that today??s vehicles have extremely sophisticated and complex automatic transmissions. A transmission is truly an engineering marvel comprising of computers, hydraulics, real-time computer control, electo-hydraulic control, solenoids, gears, clutches, wires, switches, sensors, and fluids to name a few. Contemporary transmissions require a sophisticated ??transmission computer?? directly linked to the ??engine computer?? to control and monitor the transmission so that the vehicle runs and shifts smoothly. Many different things can go wrong. Fortunately, there is great deal of diagnostic capabilities built into today??s vehicles to ensure that the entire system is working seamlessly and error free. It all must be working together?. When it is not, considerable expertise is needed to determine the cause. Motortrans has this expertise.
Just like today??s engines, the transmission has evolved too. All of us have experienced a `check engine` or `service engine` light, well, transmissions also have error/fault codes too. When a transmission detects a problem, it typically places itself in a `failsafe` or `limp home` mode. This mode is for the driver??s safety and it protects both the transmission and engine from further internal damage. Never ignore any of these warning indicators ??
A result of all of today??s trans complexity, it is simply a matter of time, but sooner or later, we all experience a transmission fault or trouble indication. When this happens, don??t panic, it??s not the end of the world. An engine or transmission fault indication can be good thing because it is informing the driver that something is wrong or is `out of spec` and it needs to be looked at. And yes, it may indicate a repair is required. Don??t fret; often the repair is relatively minor! If the vehicle has higher mileage, it could be something more involved like a transmission or valve body rebuild. Whatever the situation, a partnership with an excellent transmission shop to both diagnose and then repair the vehicle is essential. As a satisfied repeat customer, I highly recommend Motortrans.

I visited Motor trans in marlton last week and had to leave my car, it was acting up bad for sure, I was told that it may take sometime to check it out, John & Ed said they would throughly check the problem I was having , shifting and a hard thumping noise that was driving me insane in the trans!!! It was a free check which was to let me know what I was up against,(cost of repair,) John was very nice and the problem was minor to what I was told by another shop , what a relief to what I was quoted elsewhere!! John in formed me that it would be fixed properly and the time time factor in getting it ready , I had no idea a trans was so complex and the time in which it took to get my car back, as I needed it for work and my wifes errands around the town to mention. I didn't know at all was going to take about a week or more but I'm so happy John was up front with me and to all the steps I had to go thru in getting the job done. John's words were right on the money!! and my wife and I are very happy as my car is just great again thank you so much John you are the man with the trans shop!!!!

I had read the reviews as well as a description of this shop online before I took my car in. I had high hopes that they would at least be able to tell me what was wrong with it. After taking it in at the beginning of the week to be looked at and to diagnose the problem (for free) I was told they wouldn't be able to check it until the next day. No problem. The next day... still no progress, they told me what they think the problem MIGHT be and quoted the maximum amount it could cost. I asked them to figure out exactly what the problem was and we'd take it from there. Another day later I got a phone call saying they hadn't opened it up to diagnose the problem yet, when I aksed when they would have that done I was told between 9-11am the next morning. By 11am, nothing. So I call at 11:30 to find out what's going on only to find out they hadn't even gotten started until I called. Finally I had enough! After a week of being in this shop the problem had still not been diagnosed and once it was it wouldn't be worked on until some time the next week. After expressing my frustration to John, his only response was "Stop, stop, stop. I'll tell you what we're gonna do. We'll put it back together and you can come pick it up". Which I was planning on doing at that point anyway. So after 4 days, no progress and no diagnosis I left his shop just the way I came in, with a car that barely runs and no solid reason why.

Since I was only getting the free check and no (paying) work was scheduled yet, I realize I was put at the bottom of the list of priorities. Needless to say I won't be back and the experience left a very sour taste in my mouth. Time to go on the hunt for another mechanic and hope I can get my car fixed some time in the near future!

went to a number of transmissions shops and was paying just to look at my car and the time I spent was to long, met with John the owner and was taken care of on my 05 chevy silverado his experience on what was needed and the job done was great he also does auto repairs!!! the oil change and belts I needed was done all at his shop!!! I even was offered a ride when I had to leave my truck. I liked the quick service& knowledge of my trucks problems along with the phone call letting me know before any work was done to my truck along with the fair price to do the work. with the budget I had to work with. I will recomend motor trans for all my repairs !!!
