Transmissions are heavy-duty pieces of equipment that are designed to last a long time. But like any other machine, they’ll eventually wear out and need repair. Automatic and manual transmission repair and fluid flushes are common services, but scheduled auto maintenance can prevent major repair and transmission replacement.

Signs That Your Transmission Needs Repair or Replacement
Transmission repair or replacement is not a service that you want to put off. A faulty transmission can cause other parts to wear out faster, so we urge you to bring your car in for an inspection if you notice any of these signs your transmission is failing.
1 – Fluid Leak
Transmission fluid is red and smells sweet. Look under your car after it’s been parked for some time to see if you have a transmission fluid leak.
2 – Burning Smell
Old, worn-down transmissions will emit burning smells as they age. This could also be due to your transmission needing a fluid flush. Either way, burning smells are never good, so bring your car in ASAP if you smell burning.
3 – Slipping Gears
It’s unsafe to drive a car with slipping gears as you may not have complete control. You should never drive a car that has gears that slip. If this is the case, schedule service with us soon.
4 – Gears Refuse to Switch
Likewise, if your gears refuse to switch, that’s another problem. This is a tell-tale sign of a bad transmission, but a fluid flush typically will solve the issue.
McCullough NAPA Auto Care has been in business since 1968. During that time, we’ve served Johns Creek area drivers with quality auto and transmission repair service that we are proud of.

Graham was great and was up front about everything that needed to be done. My son's jeep went down on the Saturday before Memorial Day and they had him ready around 1pm that Thursday. Quick turn around in my eyes. Nice employees, everyone was cordial and friendly.

I do not know if I can type out all that I want to in this review but let me say this. WOW!! Being a single father with a busy schedule I cannot tell you enough how grateful I am for Eric and his team! I have been taking my vehicle to them for over 2 years now and I would not go anywhere else. The honesty, timing and keeping their word every single time is simply priceless! They have saved me so much grief because of my current situation. For all you single fathers out there...these guys got your back! I only have one vehicle and my son and I depend on it being in the best running shape possible. Eric and his team go out of there way EVERY-SINGLE-TIME. During these special times where its harder to get even the simplest things done, that has not slowed down this business. They still give 110% with every customer and are sympathetic to their customers unique situations. People, don't look any further for a shop that you can trust and count on. You will simply waste your time and find no better service in Atlanta. Eric, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything you and your guys do. Having open and honest communication with you is always a pleasure. Folks lets do our best to keep these guys busy!! They deserve everyone's business! A++++++

Quick and excellent service. I was turned away at my regular mechanic because he said he didn’t know how to do a transmission fluid change. This was my first time ever going to McCullough auto care, and I was very happy with my service. They were able to see me immediately and were patient with me considering the circumstances. Eric was great, and even matched the prices of another mechanic down the road. I will be back! Would recommend!

Good, honest, and fair shop. If you are in sandy spring, I would not go anywhere else. Family owned and operated - take care of their customers and their crew it seems. 6 stars

My truck broke down when we got to Atlanta on the way to Disney world. A local stopped to help us and recommended this place. This place got me in and got the radiator fixed for a very fair price and on our way the next day very quickly. I was so impressed and it's no surprise they are very busy. Thank you so much and my family all got to the resort and is having a great time!! These people are great and will get your vehicle fixed for a fair price. Plus, you get Napa warranty all over the country at least I did on the repair I got. Please support them!!!

What more is there to say? These guys are amazing. Their service is very thorough and quick. I was so worried about the cost of my repair but Eric and Brian put me at ease with their extremely reasonable prices! My truck is running like it's brand new again and I can't thank these guys enough!

I may have written one other recommendation in my of 50 years, but after doing business with Eric McCullough for 35 of those years it is time to write another one. He maintained and serviced my auto's, my wife, kids and employees for 32 of those 35 years. He has stood behind the work on everything he and his employees have done. He operates his business with great honesty and integrity. I highly recommend doing business. with McCullough

My experience was surprisingly excellent. I was greeted immediately before I could actually get out my car. Eric was professional and friendly. Eric Followed up with me has promised. I really like that Eric shares real honest timing/wait expectations.
July 20, 2020
Able to fix issue with my 2011 truck other shops could not address- very hard to diagnose mechanical issue another reputable shops couldn’t figure out. Good prices, done on time, and with expert mechanics. Will have them work on all of my vehicles and highly recommended. Support a family owned business for a change!
February 23, 2021
Great customer service! Eric and team did an awesome job coordinating their busy schedule with the schedule of my girlfriend and myself so that we would have a car during the work week and then trade off cars when the other was ready. They are extremely friendly and it felt like they had us as the customer in mind. Highly recommend!

I have recommended McCullough's several times to my neighbors in the neighborhood blog. I have used this company for many years and they are always helpful. It is great to have a garage you can trust.
September 8, 2019
We had an issue with a splash shield dragging and overheating. We are heading back to Kansas this afternoon. They were able to fit us in despite being super busy & do a quick fix and sent us on our way in 10 minutes. So kind and amazing service!

I would normally recommend this business as I have been here a few times. I went there Friday for an oil change. However, I honestly didn't feel safe. They have signs that customers must wear a mask. There was only one employee wearing a mask themselves. All the others didn't have a mask on. I feel this is disrespectful to their customers. I understand it can be uncomfortable but it is essential during these times.

I own and automotive repair business in Jacksonville, but my wife lives in Atlanta and needed tires for her car, so I know good service and fair pricing in this industry. I chose McCullough because of their good reviews and they did not disappoint. They were very professional and took good care of my wife. I would highly recommend them and will continue to use them for her service needs.
October 21, 2019
Graham is great. Kept me informed of my repairs and provided an accurate quote. Pleased with the results. Walked away feeling this place is trustworthy and does quality work. Found them through nextdoor app and now I see why they have such great reviews.
July 27, 2020
Very honest mechanics. Eric kept me in the loop with my cars progress. I got the car back in a reasonable amount of time considering the work that had to be done.
January 30, 2020
Would recommend to anyone that needs vehicle maintenance. They are the most honest and reliable mechanic service that I’ve dealt with. Thanks again!
February 16, 2021
Eric has been my service manager for years. He is always professional and easy to deal with. He goes out of his way to take care of your needs and makes accommodations to the customer when needed. They will ferry me and my car to and from their shop (I live within blocks) and I appreciate that very much. Everyone at McCullough is nice, friendly and helpful.

How To Prolong The Life Of Your Transmission
The first thing you can do is to make sure your transmission always has enough fluid. Transmission fluid cools and lubricates your transmission’s internal parts. When there’s insufficient fluid, the transmission will run hotter and wear out sooner. The transmission fluid also provides the pressure needed to transfer power from the engine to the transmission. If there’s not enough fluid, your transmission won’t shift properly.
McCullough NAPA Auto Care will check your transmission fluid level as part of our complimentary multi-point inspection with any scheduled service. Likewise, if you see any reddish-colored transmission fluid on your Johns Creek driveway, have us inspect it for a leak! A gasket, hose, or seal could be leaking and may need to be repaired.
The next thing you can do to prolong the life of your transmission is to replace your transmission fluid on schedule. As you can imagine, all those gears grinding on each other result in lots of little bits of metal in the fluid. The more there is, the faster the transmission parts will wear out. Transmission fluid also contains detergents and other additives to protect your transmission. These additives are depleted over time, so old fluid doesn’t protect as well as new fluid. Your owner’s manual or service advisor will recommend when you should have a transmission service.
If your transmission isn’t shifting as smoothly as it should, or if you suspect a transmission leak, let us look at it. It may be time to consider scheduled transmission service. Regular maintenance and taking care of small leaks will help your transmission last as long as possible.
