Florida Repair Shop Strives to Meet Customers’ Specific Needs

Pamper your vehicle at Andrews Transmission and Car Care

Tim Lane, master technician and shop foreman at Andrews Transmission, and co-owner Delaine Andrews are seen at the Automatic Transmission Rebuilders Association Conference for the Gulf States Chapter in Biloxi, MS.
At Andrews Transmission your automobile’s care is their top priority.

“We have been a leading specialist in the repair and overhaul of transmissions for import and domestic vehicles since opening the shop in January of 2000,” said co-owner Delaine Andrews in giving some insight into the shop’s services.

In January of 2008 the name changed from Andrews Transmissions to Andrews Transmission & Car Care to more adequately reflect the comprehensive automobile care offered there. “Due to complexity of today’s vehicles and multi-systems, where each relies on the other, an engine related problem could be misdiagnosed as a transmission problem,” explained Delaine who, along with long-time employee and Master Technician Tim Lane, manages the shop.

Delaine has a motto that she tells every technician that is hired: “We are not in the automotive repair industry. We are in the transportation industry.”

Most customers’ needs vary, she said. It may be that this is their only mode of transportation and they need it fast, it may be that they only need this car to last another year, or they are on a limited budget. “Whatever the reason, when a customer comes to Andrews Transmission & Car Care, we do our very best to meet that person’s needs,” she continued.

Alternator Testing For No Charge Conditions

Many alternator problems turn out to be nothing more than a bad connection at the alternator or a bad wiring harness.

If only battery voltage is present at the battery on a running engine, does this mean the alternator is “bad?” No, it does not. It only means that the alternator is not charging, but does not reveal why. Therefore, it does not point to a faulty alternator. All too often, the alternator is condemned by technicians due to this test alone. The cause could instead be a module that distributes the power to the vehicle and regulates the alternator.
