Can Driving Condition's Affect My Transmission?
Yes, extreme cold or hot weather combined with poor driving conditions can impact a transmission's life expectancy. When seldom driven or usually driven short distances, vehicles may be subject to unusual wear or strain. An example would be vehicles that are normally driven a short distance normally never have the chance for the engine to heat up to the normal heat range, the result of which can be excessive engine wear.
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."
Never have we had any trouble with the work done. I would highly recommend Chips!

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!"
Honesty & Integrity still mean something at your business.
Gabriella Sandoval of Newport Tennessee
"I am happy to say every once in a while a person or business comes along and restores my faith that there are competent decent people in the world. Chip's Transmissions and the people I know there have went beyond the call of duty ( and beyond my year warranty) to fix my transmission and vehicle. I would never hesitate to recommend or defend your workmanship and commitment to your clients. Sometimes you actually do get what you pay for, you may pay a little more at Chip's Transmissions, but you get a lot more at Chip's Transmissions. Honesty & Integrity still mean something at your business."
Thanks for the great deal on a great transmission job!
Bob Zachar of Bartlett Tennessee
"You know, when you have to buy a transmission 400 miles from home, you're really "under the gun", because you know if a problem develops you sure aren't able to take it back easily. Fortunately for us, such a problem never arose. I don't think it's an accident that your work help up like it has. Quality is not an accident, it's a process that reflects directly on the person at the helm. Unfortunately for you, the distance between us prevents my bragging about the service I got to result in referred customers for you. Believe this; I have told the story about the broken transmission in the Smoky Mountains to a lot of people in Memphis. It usually comes up when someone remarks, "are you still driving that old Chevrolet"? "How many miles on it"? Of course when I tell them, "enough to get to the moon", they want to know if it's the original engine and transmission. On the issue of quality, let me share a quote from FedEx's Fred Smith. He was speaking to a large group of employees and basically said, "Satisfying the customer in this competitive world is not enough, we must DELIGHT them. Because although satisfied customers will probably stay loyal (emphasize probably), delighted customers multiply". Delighting customers means going above and beyond the industry norms, but the payback means the difference between survival and growth or demise. So much for rambling. I'm sure I speak for numerous customers who are also "delighted", but never took the time to say thanks. You know how it is, we're all so busy that we only tend to speak when it's something to complain about. Thanks for the great deal on a great transmission job!"
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.

I have never been treated so well by a business
Lorie Tackett of Sevierville Tennessee
"I have never been treated so well by a business, walking me thru everything. Taking time on the phone to explain how things are done and why. You truly went above and beyond what the other shops do. Thank you so very much."
I can't say enough good things about the level of service and professionalism by ALL of the people at Chips who helped us out in a time of need, not once but twice in the same week!!
St. Clair Shores Michigan
David Haas of St. Clair Shores Michigan
"While pulling our 10,000 pound 5th wheel from Michigan to the Smokey Mountains during the 2015 4th of July Holiday we experienced two different problems. The first was we lost first gear about 10 miles from our campground. I found Chips during a google search and used their online service schedule tool to schedule an appointment for Monday morning. Phil contacted me Saturday evening to notify me that I may not be the first appointment due to being closed so his employees could also enjoy the long Holiday weekend, but they would be able to help me as soon as possible Monday morning. Fifteen minutes after my arrival on Monday morning they had diagnosed the problem as a transducer, and begun working on the repair. An hour and a half later I was on my way! Our second problem happened while sight seeing in the Smokey Mountains National Park. The diesel engine in our truck just died it would not stay running more then 5 seconds at a time. I contacted Eric at Chips Transmission, he arranged a tow truck for us, and put me in contact with Terrell at Chips diesel repair. The tow truck arrived within 1 hour and had our truck to Chips prior to closing. The next day Terrell had diagnosed the problem as the fuel transfer pump, and had the repairs made by 11:00am! I can't say enough good things about the level of service and professionalism by ALL of the people at Chips who helped us out in a time of need, not once but twice in the same week!! Thank you, David Haas"
You can be sure if we are in Tennessee again we will stop and say hello. Thanks again!
Russ Milbrodt of Massillon Ohio
"Our car is running great. No problems. Russ has checked the fluid level a couple of times - no leaking. I wanted to again thank you all for being so friendly and helpful. You did not have to do the extras - finding us a hotel room and a rental car. These extras plus your sympathetic and understanding attitude will always bring you repeat customers and a reputation to be proud of. You made a stressful situation a lot easier to deal with. You can be sure if we are in Tennessee again we will stop and say hello. Thanks again!"
I brought my knitting and a good book and enjoyed conversation with the office manager and one of the customers. It was a good experience. I definitely recommend Chips.
Virginia Simpson of Seymour Tennessee
"The people who work at Chips are very competent and friendly. They answered all my questions so that I could understand what work was being done. The waiting area is cozy and comfortable. On my latest visit to their shop I had to wait 5 1/2 hours before the work was done. That was not a surprise since that is simply how long that job takes. I brought my knitting and a good book and enjoyed conversation with the office manager and one of the customers. It was a good experience. I definitely recommend Chips. "
