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.

I know for me one hard thing about choosing a mechanic is brushing off all previous notions I have about mechanics Potentially not treating my car how they would treat their own car. This place has done more than exceed my expectations. I got a phone call for every update, I got a thorough description of what was to be done and what was wrong, not only that, but where the dealership said it would take them two weeks to fix my car, these guys did it in less than 24 hours. I have never been happier to spend $300 in my life. Anything I need in the future, you can be sure I’ll bring it here.

Had experienced front tire damage hitting metal debris on I-285 just before Rosewll exit. Immediately exited on Roswell and saw NAPA sign and pulled in. Place was busy! But got attention immediately by Jeff service worker. Got tire off my car no waiting. Wow! Determined rim bent but tire still good. He could have sold me a new tire and i would have not known better. So appreciative. Then met with Eric McCullough and quickly arranged to have rim fixed. I decided on new tires for safety and were worn. Eric got me great deal on tires and had my car fixed SAME day. Eric runs a super customer-focused operation. Kudos! Bruce Fike

I received great service from this location! I called them about replacing a serpentine belt and they got it done for me the very next morning. It was quick, and cheaper than some other places that I had called for the same service. Eric and his team did a great job, and they were very nice! I will definitely return for any other auto repair I may need in the future.

This place is right by my house. I was really happy with the customer service. I was worried about affordability and turn over but they were efficient and I will be back for any future needs.

I really cannot count the number of times these brothers have taken care of me, my family and all our various vehicles. We have been loyal customers for more than 20 years! They have done everything we have needed on cars, trailers, used car evaluations for purchase, tank drops, and all the basics. They are very trustworthy and will give you a honest answer on everything and a reasonable estimate on what it will cost to resolve it. They are super busy, so plan to wait a day or two longer than you might somewhere else, but it is worth it!

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!

Have been going to McCollough’s for decades! Once I found them, I knew they were honest and professional. Not often one can say that about an auto repair place. They have helped me keep my older vehicles safely on the road for longer than I could imagine. I have always been treated with respect, no matter how large or small the issue, which is excellent and reassuring for an older woman.Highly recommend them!

After recently moving to the area, I had a vehicle emergency where my transmission needed replacing. Graham immediately took me in and was SO kind, professional, and direct about the costs; one of their kind staff members even drove me home after my car was dropped for repair so that I did not have to call a car service. They were so patient with me and got my car back to me in one day completely fixed and ready to go! I will never use any other automotive repair shop in the area! ABSOLUTELY recommend without hesitation!

This shop is the best. They did everything they could so I would have minimal time without my car such as having all parts ready before they scheduled the repair. They are super nice and no surprises on price. They opened up my bumper and found a part was damaged. They could have left it the way it and no one would have known but they were honest and did the right thing. I recommend 100%.

Wow! I am so impressed with the service I received. Having moved here from Nashville I was nervous about finding a mechanic! These guys are BUSY but they treat every customer like their priority. I got my car repaired within two days on a weekend! Prices can’t be beat and I was getting phone calls with detailed status updates. Amazing service. Really compassionate. Please doing business! I thought I was going to have to spend thousands fixing the plate that was dragging under my car but I got it fixed for under $200! Thank you!!!

They diagnosed and repaired my car in time for my trip. Car works great! Eric provides excellent customer service even when he's got a ton on his plate.

Came in for emissions and they exceeded my expectations! Saw headlight out, replaced it. Saw no oil sticker, checked it and put a little in it until i can get back in for change. While waiting you could tell these guys really care about their customers and the safety of their vehicles. Definitely will be coming back here!

A staff of gentlemen ready to answer every question with a smile and great knowledge. They not only gave me a good estimate but they completed the work a day early! I highly recommend McCullough NAPA Auto Care to you. You will not be disappointed by the care they put into your vehicle.

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.

Honest pricing..."as promised" timely repairs... and good customer service! - I keep coming back to McCullough with a different vehicle (Nissan Truck/Honda Truck/Honda Car) and they knock it outta the park every time!

I had a check engine light on Saturday afternoon, ended up being an engine coil pack needing to be replaced. It was obviously super busy and I knew I would need to leave it until Monday to get looked at. Staff was very informative and communication was excellent. Got it looked at Monday and ordered necessary part to come in the next day. Went ahead and did the spark plugs as well since I was nearing 60k miles. Picked it up after lunch with no issues. Seems like they do really well with the small space provided and very busy area right off 285

Brian and the team were fantastic with handling my issue. In fact they discovered a major error which occurred when I had my last oil change done at a quick oil change place, which turned out to be the cause of my issue. They took pics of it and wrote out an explanation for me to give to the previous oil chance place. Because of their extra effort, I am getting reimbursed for the error. I highly recommend Brian and the team!

This is the best place you could possibly go to take care of your car! My family and I have been going here for over 15 years and we recommend them to everyone. Eric, Bryan, and Graham are the most trustworthy guys and truly care about their customers. We all love them and are so thankful we found them!!

This has to be the best shop in town! When I got my car fixed the last time, It drove live new. I've never been so happy to get my car fixed in my life. They were very friendly and honest. This will be my go to place from now on. Not too far from my house which is a huge plus but even if it were, I'd be game to making the trip. Thanks for being honest and giving great service!

WOW!! An amazing experience! Traveled here from Kansas to apartment shop for my daughter who is relocating and my husband was unable to join A part was dragging under the car so we popped in to see if they could help. They were so kind and helpful. Restored my faith in this world. Good people do exist!!

I have known Eric and the facility for over 30 years. The service from both a customer and repair stand point is excellent. You can expect to be treated with a high level of professional performance, and courtesy.

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 Norcross 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.
