If your engine's lifespan has reached an end and constant repairs become the norm, your vehicle might be a candidate for an engine replacement. Our technicians can help you decide if an engine replacement would be the right course of action. Don't stress. Bring it to VMSat 4236 Kanawha Turnpike in South Charleston and we'd be happy to discuss your options.

Timing Belt Replacement

A timing belt is what synchronizes the camshaft of your engine with the crankshaft rotation so that the engine valves open and close at the precise times. A broken timing belt can leave you stranded so it is important to consider having your timing belt replaced when your vehicle manufacturer suggests to do so in the owner's manual of your vehicle. This service often gets overlooked by vehicle owners because the old adage, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it," comes into play. Somehow we don't think they had timing belts in mind when that old adage became a popular phrase. To have your vehicle's timing belt checked or replaced by professionals, contact VMStoday.

Transmission Flush

If your engine sounds fine but your car just wont "go," ask yourself if there are grinding noises, slipping gears, problems shifting, surging of the vehicle or any delays in movement when the vehicle is put into gear. These problems could indicate that a transmission flush is needed. Most manufactures recommend a flush at 30,000 miles but some of those symptoms listed above may indicate that a transmission flush is needed sooner. The service can be done in a relatively short time and will wash away any dirt, metal shavings or clutch material. Call 304-768-6200 or visit VMSat the manufacturer suggested interval or sooner if you experience any of those annoying symptoms.

Transmission Repair

Sometimes transmission issues can be cured by simply making adjustments to your transmission or replacing parts or seals. VMSprofessionals will assess your transmission to determine if your trouble can be fixed in this manner or if a replacement is needed. VMSservices both manual and automatic transmissions and we would be happy to determine your best course of action. To have this done by our experts, call 304-768-6200 to talk to the mechanics today.
