Is It Important To Change Oil And Oil Filter On Schedule Important?
Yes! Chip's Transmissions tells our customers in the Sevierville area that lubricating a vehicle's engine's moving parts is the most important job of a vehicle's motor oil. Chip's Transmissions tells our customers that dirty motor oil wears out engine parts much quicker and that clean motor oil cleans the inner parts of a vehicle's engine as well as helping to cool it. Motor oil serves to seal the space between an engine's piston rings and cylinder walls, forming enough of a seal to help prevent loss of power and increase and engine's operating economy.
Changing an engine's oil without replacing the oil filter can result in the new oil picking up the contaminants trapped in the old oil filter and recirculating them to the engine's moving parts.
Change the oil and oil filter before leaving the Sevierville area for an extended road trip. The more contaminated the oil, the faster a vehicle's engine will consume it. Frequently having an oil and filter change by the staff at Chip's Transmissions is an effective way to increase the life of your vehicle - one of your most expensive and valuable possessions. The auto repair mechanics at Chip's Transmissions recommend changing your car's oil and oil filter every 3,000-5,000 miles.

Play it safe and do not go anywhere else for transmission work.
Richard Pisula of Sevierville Tennessee
"I am very pleased with how quickly they rebuilt my Transmission. They had me back on the road in 2 days. Very professional. Would highly recommend them. Play it safe and do not go anywhere else for transmission work."
Not knowing a good mechanic while out of town is stressful, but the staff at Chips was quick friendly and knowledgeable, and their pricing is fair.

"If you have any transmisson troubles while in the Gatlinburg Pigeon Forge area Chips Transmissions is the place to go. Not knowing a good mechanic while out of town is stressful, but the staff at Chips was quick friendly and knowledgeable, and their pricing is fair. "
It is a pleasure to deal with a locally owned shop that will not take advantage of you and even as skeptical as I am with repair shops, I feel I was well taken care of and would return again.
John Jeffries of Maryville Tennessee
"I recently returned back to East TN after serving in the military for 23 years. Unfortunately my truck transmission did not like the drive from Jacksonville Fla to Knoxville, and required repair work. I was skeptical and researched the local shops via online and from other repair shops in the area. All pointed in the direction of "Chips Transmission". So I called and spoke to Phil, and brought my truck in for an estimate. Ended up needing a rebuild. After some recommendations from Phil, we decided on a plan for my needs. They really took the time to work with me and my schedule and I couldnâ€™t be happier. I highly recommend them for great customer service, and good camaraderie, as Chip and his other son both served in the military. GO NAVY! It is a pleasure to deal with a locally owned shop that will not take advantage of you and even as skeptical as I am with repair shops, I feel I was well taken care of and would return again. I would recommend them to anyone. Thanks, I sure appreciate it. "
I could not believe I finally found a transmission shop that was honest!
Tracy Highsmith of Knoxville Tennessee
"I could not believe I finally found a transmission shop that was honest! I will return to Chip's for anything transmission related with my truck again & again. They are very well worth the drive from Knoxville. Thanks Chip's for doing it right the 1st time!"
I can really feel my gears shifting. You did a great job!
Bob Smiddy of Knoxville Tennessee
"I would like to take the opportunity to recommend Chip's Transmissions for your service needs. Chip is a straight forward, down to earth, honest, and reliable individual and he stands behind is work. I only wish I knew Chip long ago! Last year my truck transmission broke and I had my truck towed into the local transmission shop in middel Tennessee. one wee and $2,000 later I was on the road again, but nothing ever felt right. One day when I was out making a pick up for my store, it started to slip again, I had my truck towed in to Chip's Transmissions, and boy was i luck this time. After the major repairs I was back on the road again. I can really feel my gears shifting. You did a great job! you can trust Chip and you will be pleased with your repairs."
I don't know the name of the people who referred us to you, but he said he had always heard you were the best. We made the trip home fine. The car runs as good or better than it did.
Doris Guy of Laurel Mississippi
"I've never broken down on a trip before. In the 25 years I've been going to Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg area, I've never been in a situation like that before. Thanks to you, you made it a little easier to trust strangers. I don't know the name of the people who referred us to you, but he said he had always heard you were the best. We made the trip home fine. The car runs as good or better than it did. Thanks again for all you did for two old people. We will stop in to see you if we ever get back that way. Thanks again and God bless."
Next time I'm going to Chip's Transmissions firs!
Don Watson of Sevierville Tennessee
"On December 12, 2006, I was Christmas shopping in Sevierville and parked at one of the many outlets. Upon returning to my vehicle, I started the engine and placed the vehicle in reverse. As I gently accelerated to back out of the parking space, the vehicle did not respond as the transmission seemed to slip. The transmission suddenly caught and jerked into gear. I tried forward, reverse, and everything worked perfectly. However, my 2003 Ford Explorer does not have a stick to check the level, you must place the vehicle on a lift at a service station. I wanted to make sure the fluid levels was correct to prevent any future problems, so I visited several locations and asked to have the fluid level checked. One location told me they would not check the fluid, but they would hook me up for a diagnostic test for a substantial fee. I explained that the transmission was working fine, and I just wanted to check the fluid as a precaution. They still refused. The other locations were busy or told me they couldn't perform the service check on my transmission. Thinking I was going to have to drive to Knoxville or similar distance, I thought of Chip's Transmission repair shop in Sevierville. I went there and talked to Mr. Phil Sims. They had numerous vehicles being repaired, but Mr. Sims worked me into their schedule in a timely manner. They completed the check on my transmission, and did so at a very fair price. I mistakenly thought of a transmission shop as a location for repairs only. However, they perform repairs and many other functions as well. Many thanks to you Phil, for taking time out of your busy schedule to perform a small job for me. Next time I'm going to Chip's Transmissions first!"
I will recommend you to anybody looking for a Transmission Specialist and you will continue to do my work in the future.
Joe Wilcox of Sevierville Tennessee
"Just a note to say thank you for the quick and dependable service you did on my wife's car. I was referred to you from a friend that also believes in you. I made the appointment to have my transmission filter changed and flushed before I went on a road trip back to Michigan to visit my family, you got me right in like you said you would do. You were good enough to take me back to work and pick me up when the job was done, this was a great service to me. You mentioned that you checked the tire pressure and belts and hoses which also helped put my mind at ease since I did not have the time to do it myself. You also mentioned something that I should keep an eye on about my transmission and when I got back to Michigan I followed up with a GM transmission specialist I had known for years and he agreed to what you had told me. I will recommend you to anybody looking for a Transmission Specialist and you will continue to do my work in the future. "
