How Frequently Should My Transmission's Fluid Be Changed?
Chip's Transmissions recommends that our customers in the greater Sevierville area change their vehicle's transmission fluid every 3 years / 36,000 miles. The transmission technicians at Chip's Transmissions recommend bringing your vehicle to our Sevierville auto repair shop once a year for a transmission fluid change. If your vehicle is older, or you use it for hauling heavy loads and/or towing around the Sevierville area, it may be required more frequently. To determine if a fluid change is needed, Chip's Transmissions recommends an external diagnostic service. An external diagnostic service for a transmission includes checking the level and condition of your transmission fluid, a road test around Sevierville, and putting your car on a lift at our shop to check your external transmission controls and to keep your transmission, and your vehicle, performing properly.

Hands down, grade A customer service!
Jeremie Cutter of Vevay Indiana
"Great service! They took the time to listen to what my plans were for the truck and explained what they were going to do and answered all of my questions. I ended up having a problem with the tranny which was no fault of either party and there were no questions asked as to why ... it was just "bring it in and we'll get it fixed". It was fixed fast, too. A day and a half and I was going again. Very good for bringing it in just after noon and getting it back the next evening. Every time I called, someone has always answered or gotten back to me fast (within 1/2 hour) and I probably called 15+ times - from setting up an appointment to having questions to minor problems to getting it picked up. Hands down, grade A customer service! Thank you ALL!"
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."
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 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!"
Chip's technicians were highly trained folks. Thanks, Chip's for being there!
Gary Swartz of Sevierville Tennessee
"It was our first experience at Chip's. We called to check their prices and to see how soon we could have our RV checked and serviced. When we got done talking to them we felt better that our RV was getting in the next day for service. So it would be done prior to our trip to Tucson, Arizona. The RV was done ahead of time with needing only a routine service, since nothing was found during their inspection. Everyone there at Chip's was very friendly, like you were family. They answer all questions and told you all that was done on the RV. I have told my friends about Chip's and their excellent service and price. Speaking of price check what it will cost you to take it to your RV repair shop and then check Chip's you will be happy you called them. Chip's also had me done by the next day. RV center-two to three weeks to just get a date to bring it in. Chip's technicians were highly trained folks. Thanks, Chip's for being there!"

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."
I will definitely be bringing my car back if/when I need anything else done. They are friendly and respectable.
Ashley Ray of Sevierville Tennessee
"I took my car here because I was having brake issues. I wasn't sure of the cause, but John was sure to call me with updates and ask questions. He was very straight forward and honest. I will definitely be bringing my car back if/when I need anything else done. They are friendly and respectable."
