Transmission Replacement
In motor vehicles, the transmission usually refers to the gear box, which uses gears and gear trains to transmit speed and torque from a rotating power source to another device. You can have your car's transmission replaced with a new, rebuilt, remanufactured, repaired or used transmission. For more information contact Lou's Wolverine Transmission and Auto Repair in Ann Arbor, MI. Our experienced service technicians can help you make the best decision for your vehicle and your wallet.

Transmission Repair
Our services include transmission repair on both manual and automatic transmissions. The first step in getting you back on the road is assessing your transmission to accurately determine the source of the problem. In some cases, we are able to repair your transmission simply with adjustments, replacing external seals, or replacing accessible parts. To have this done by specialists, call 734-663-3314 to talk to the mechanics of Lou's Wolverine Transmission and Auto Repair today.

Transmission Repair and Rebuild
When it comes to automatic transmission repair, there are several options: buying a new one, buying a remanufactured one or having yours rebuilt. Each of the above options has its own share of advantages and disadvantages. Of the three options, rebuilt transmissions are the most economical. A rebuilt transmission involves removing the transmission from the car, disassembling it, replacing worn out parts, reassembling it, and then reinstalling it. To have this done by specialists, call 734-663-3314 to talk to the mechanics of Lou's Wolverine Transmission and Auto Repair today.

Transmission Flush
Although most manufacturers recommend a transmission flush every 30,000 miles or every two years, some symptoms may indicate that you need a transmission flush sooner. Some of the symptoms that indicate that your car needs a transmission flush sooner are: transmission grinding or strange noises, problems shifting gears, slipping gears, surging of the car, and delay in vehicle movement. Flushing the used fluid from the transmission washes away tiny particles of dirt, clutch material, and metal shavings. For all your transmission flush needs, call 734-663-3314 or visit Lou's Wolverine Transmission and Auto Repair today - we are transmission experts.

Timing Belt
A timing belt is a part of your car's internal combustion engine. The belt synchronizes the camshaft and the crankshaft rotation so that the engine valves open and close at the correct timings. Also, the belt prevents the piston from striking the valves in an interference engine. A timing Belt is a rubber belt that usually features teeth on the inside surface, while a timing chain is a metal roller chain. Most cars we drive now have timing belts instead of timing chains and gears. Although different manufacturers have their recommended mileage, you need to have your car's timing belt checked regularly. To have it checked by experts, contact Lou's Wolverine Transmission and Auto Repair today.

Cylinder Head
A cylinder head is the closed end of a cylinder (located in a car's engine block). It sits above the cylinder block, closing the top of the cylinder and forming the combustion chamber. The cylinder head coordinates airflow in and out of the engine. Since the cylinder head's chief function is to seal the cylinders properly, insufficient compression results in the car being difficult to drive. To have your cylinder head checked and repaired, talk to Lou's Wolverine Transmission and Auto Repair's cylinder head repair and reconditioning specialists today.

Cylinder Block
A cylinder block is the powerhouse for the motor vehicle. The solid cast car part houses the cylinders and their components (gaskets, valves, and seals) inside a lubricated and cooled crankcase. Since it is one of the most important parts of your car, the block is designed to be extremely strong and sturdy. Although strong and sturdy, the block is susceptible to failure resulting in a vehicle that won't start. Cracked blocks, porous blocks, core plug, or freeze plug failure are some of the problems facing cylinder blocks. Call 734-663-3314 to talk to the mechanics of Lou's Wolverine Transmission and Auto Repair about your cylinder block problems.

What Our Customers Are Saying

Lou and his team are unbelievable. Not only do they do incredible work but they are also incredibly fair and will have no problem telling you what should be done rather than what will make them the most money. They really care about the customer. That's why my family and I refuse to go anywhere else for service. Lou is the only place to go, in my opinion.


-Jonathan B.

Lou did a great job on my truck! He was very professional and punctual in working on my vehicle and getting it back to me in a very timely manner. I found his prices to be reasonable. I appreciate his keen insight in addressing all of my concerns, without any additional charge. I will be going back to him and highly recommend this place!


-J. C.

If you're looking for a good auto shop that specializes in transmissions and drivetrains, stop searching. Not only did they fit me in on a busy afternoon, but they returned my car same day, fixed the issue I was experiencing with my AWD subie, and did it all at a fair price. No surprises, no additional services, just a solid experience. I can see why Lou's has been an Ann Arbor institution for 20 years.


-L & J

Great prices and amazing service. Not just transmission work but all maintenance. Thanks again


-Stuart K.

Dan is a great guy who treats you fairly.


-Mike B.

Took my Buick there with transmission problems They were very upfront, helpful. They've been there forever and had great reviews. And with good reason. They do quality work and know what they are doing. Will try other things before overhauling if they have a chance to fix it. In my case a Trans flush & cooler (Very reasonable price to do it and I wanted to have one anyway). Trans was OK for a while but went back to not shifting right. The did a complete overhaul and at less than I feared. What are you gonna do? You can't throw away the car... Other repair places offered to do it but if I was going to do it I wanted someone that did it every day. Very happy with them and glad they are here in town. Oh, I didn't know as a Veteran I got a discount but they saw my Military licence plate and gave it to me without asking. That's Honest!


-Gary D.

Lou's staff from front end to back in the shop is PHENOMENAL. They treated me with the utmost respect and were nothing short of honest and transparent the entire time. Even after I paid for a complete transmission rebuild and still had problems with my 2009 Equinox, they held onto my car until they were sure they had made it right - free of charge. I would recommend their services to anyone with transmission issues.


-Kyle B.

Lou (and now Dan) always take care of me. Honest and quick. Thanks guys!


-Frank T.

I love the guys at Lou's! Dan always goes out of his way to help me save money and provides amazing service. Being a female, I have a hard time dealing with shops because people assume I don't know anything about cars and I've lost count how many times someone tried to pull the wool over my eyes. I know I can trust Don and the guys. They get you in and out and the pricing is beyond reasonable. I won't take my car anywhere else!!


-Leigh S.

Lou retired. The business is now owned by his Nephew, still out standing service and will still continue to use for repairs I'm unable to do myself or don't have the equipment to do. I had a second vehicle that had trans axle problems around January of 2018 and I took it into him. In 2013 I had the transmission for my 1998 ford ranger rebuilt. Two years latter, the transmission is still going strong.


-John N.

Had a catastrophic failure on the transmission of my old Explorer. It honestly looked like it might be totaled. Had it towed to Lou's, they jumped right on it (even though it was the Friday before Christmas). Replaced the leaking cooling lines, verified the tranny was still good and had me back on the road in just a few hours. Life savers.


-Kent K.

Lou got my trans replaced in my Super Duty in less than a week! My truck drives like a champ now, I cannot recommend him enough! Was straightforward, less expensive, and quicker than any other shop!


-Jeremy H.

Lou's has been GREAT to me every time Lucille (my car) has needed repairs. Courteous, friendly, knowledgeable & just good people work there. Rebuilt my transmission a year ago & she's still running good. No complaints whatsoever about Lou's.
