Can You Tell Me What A Limited Slip Differential Is?
Occasionally one of our customers in the North Lauderdale area will ask a technician at Transmission Doctor what a limited slip differential is. We tell them that when their vehicle is turning around a curve, the outside wheel turns a larger radius than that of the wheel inside. This results in the outside wheel turning faster which is allowed by the differential. In a limited slip differential system, clutches or a locking mechanism is used to facilitate power and drive both wheels. This system was designed to enable both wheels to turn at varying speeds in turns, but have them both pulling when driving straight. The advantage of this is that both wheels are pulling even when one wheel may lose traction.
Brian always has time to listen to problems and explain what needs to be done and why.

Since Brian worked on the car there have been no problems whatsoever and the car runs great and reliably."

When looking for a mechanic you want honesty, quality work, and affordablity and Brian gives you all of this.
North Lauderdale Florida
Steve L of North Lauderdale Florida
"Last year I bought a used car and boy did this car have problems. I first found Brian because this is the only Transmision shop with an A+ rating with the BBB, and I definately can see why they have an A+ rating, The first job he did was rebuild my transmission he was very reasonable did quality work and offered the best warranty of any Transmission place I could find he also did it very quickly, which was an added bonus. Did I mention the Transmission still works great!... now on to the next problem I have a 2002 Saturn or should I call it a Stall-urn... in anycase this problem is a bit complicated to diagnose especially since it didn't report an error code most of the time.... Brian could've just started replacing parts and charging me mega amounts of money... but he didn't, instead he took the time to make sure something was broke before he fixed it, he has saved me so much money that he makes every other mechanic I've ever been to look bad..... I feel like he is part of the family. When looking for a mechanic you want honesty, quality work, and affordablity and Brian gives you all of this. I have told everyone I know about this place and that is the best compliment you can get.....Thank you Brian for being so great"

I am very glad to have found someone qualified and honest to keep our car's transmission running reliably.
Ozzie Minton of Plantation Florida
"Brian is an honest, knowledgeable, and qualified transmission mechanic. Don't hesitate to bring your car to his shop. We have a well kept 25 year old Toyota that my son is currently using for college. On a recent trip down from school, the car started making odd noises from the transmission. Brian identified the issue by hearing it, and fixed it promptly, at a reasonable and as quoted price. The car has been running fine now for months and many trips to and from college. I am very glad to have found someone qualified and honest to keep our car's transmission running reliably."
