The cold can be concerning when it comes to transmissions. It can create shifting issues or even cause transmission leaks. When you just take off right after you jump in your vehicle first thing, that can also cause damage. Letting your vehicle warm up a little before shifting into gear can make a difference when it is cold outside, allowing transmission fluid to come to temp and lubricate the interior parts properly. So give it a minute after you turn the key because it's too cold out there!

Tis' the season of GIVING and GENEROSITY! So, we held a drive for the Open Door Mission. Certified Transmission of all departments and locations has come together to get a donation of household goods and toys, food, clothing, toiletries, and also a sizable monetary donation which was generously matched by the owner, Peter Fink. We want to thank everyone in the company that was able to donate! We ended up with 4 heaping boxes full of much-needed items!! It's wonderful to see just how much a little bit from each person adds up to ALOT!

Here comes another Testimonial Thursday! This particular review speaks very highly of our transmission shop in Millard. Todd F. makes specific mention of Joel and Kirk, all very nice words:

"Highly recommend Certified Transmission on Q street. Joel and Kirk were helpful, personal and professional. They were able to get me in immediately for a diagnostic, make the necessary repairs get back on the road."

Thank you to Todd for the great review! And also to Joel, Kirk, and the rest of the crew at our Millard transmission shop in the Omaha, NE area! You guys are awesome!

11/15/2022

I just passed 60,000 on my odometer. Should I get my transmission fluid replaced? My transmission fluid is brown but not black or burnt. Is it time for a service? The answer to these questions: Probably. If it has been 30 thousand miles or more since you last serviced your transmission, or maybe you don't know when the last time it was serviced, then YES! You absolutely should. Getting fresh, clean fluid into your transmission is almost never a bad thing, and you never want to wait until it is black or burnt looking. If you are not sure, we can help you find out the condition of your fluid, and how your transmission is operating and complete a service for you!

It’s great to know our customers are comfortable bringing us their vehicles that are special to them. Andrea recently got her 1968 Pontiac GTO into our Lincoln, NE Certified Transmission. She had concerns that were keeping her from enjoying cruising the Lincoln streets. After our Certi-Care evaluation, we discovered that her transmission wasn’t operating as it should. She wanted her transmission 100% remanufactured instead of just a quick fix. Our expert transmission technicians knew what to do! They removed her unit, and sent it up to the factory in Omaha to be remanufactured to OEM specifications. They received it back from the plant and installed the transmission back in her GTO like pros! Pictured is Andrea and Lincoln’s Service Advisor, Angie, on the day she took delivery of her fixed GTO.
Enjoy cruising Lincoln again, Andrea!

Did you know that Certified Transmission goes above and beyond when remanufacturing transmissions? We dig in with research to see what else is new from the the manufacturer and implement those changes. We also make careful note of things that are working with our transmissions and see what is not. That way we can continue to make improvements upon design and work in the updates from the manufacturer as well. Everything is build to OEM specifications , but if we can make it even better, we will! We're determined to produce the best remanufactured transmissions possible, and with help from our research and development team, we do!

Let’s meet more of the crew, and this time from our main transmission warehouse in Omaha, NE.

Meet Devontae!
He is 1 week away from celebrating his 1 Year Anniversary with Certified! Devontae is part of the WHS Washbay Team and actually, he’s one of the leaders in that department! From the start Devontae has been very high energy and has a fast motor. He is originally from Cedar Rapids, Iowa and moved to Omaha with his family for a change. Quickly he learned all the department jobs and functions. He is always one of the best “plug in to any spot” guys, finding the best way to help, and keeping the builders fed with work.
Outside of work, Devontae is a full time parent of a boy & a girl aged 3 Years and 3 Months. He also enjoys video games and basketball, specifically the NBA. His favorite player is a Giannis with the Milwaukee Bucks. Thank you for all your hard work and making Certified better every day, Devontae!

09/13/2022

Let's talk about just one of the many reasons a transmission can fail: Glycol Contamination. Ethylene glycol is an ingredient found in antifreeze. If just the smallest amount contaminates the transmission fluid, it can cause massive issues with the inner workings of the transmission, causing the breakdown of important clutch plate materials and preventing the normal friction level of a working transmission. Symptoms of glycol contamination include: clunking or thudding noises, jerking when shifting in low gears, or a noticeable vibration. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms while driving your vehicle, reach out to us so we can find out! Is glycol contamination is the culprit, or maybe something else. Either way, we can help!

Summer must be the time when all the classics come out of the woodwork. How can this 1969 Ford Fairlaine GTA390 be 53 years old!? It looks practically brand new! Well, that is what the transmission will be when our ASE certified technicians are done replacing it at one of our Omaha transmission shops. Fun fact about this car, the "A" in GTA stood for "Automatic" but you could also get the "GT390" model that was a manual 4 speed.

This Testimonial Thursday, we're looking at one of our Omaha transmission shops, because they've just recently went above and beyond and helped more customers than they ever have before in just a week. And here is a review to back that up:

"I came in with a very intermittent shifting problem. Kirk and the team thoroughly inspected the transmission and reported it was good to go! They could have easily said any number of things were wrong with it but their ethics shined and they made me a happy customer." - Darin H.

Darin spells it out, how our Millard transmission shop operates with integrity and honesty, and we thank Darin for leaving this review for them. We're so happy you are part of the Certified Transmission team, Millard shop! Excellent work!
