What Can Cause A Differential To Fail?
Atlantic Transmission Service tells our customers in the Glen Burnie area that the differential in a vehicle is no different than any other component in that it is subject to wear and some vehicle's differentials fail before others. The leading cause of a differential failing is due to using the wrong lubricant type and specialty lubricants. Water can also be a culprit to a differential failing as it can enter through the vent or seals. This often happens when driving in high water. When water enters it will emulsify the differential lubricant and result in rusting on gear and bearing surfaces. Seized U-joints that result in vibration can cause differential failure as well.
They were very professional and courteous. I am very satisfied with Sharp Transmission Service.

"Car Trouble and a good solution. I recently had a problem with my 2003 Mazda MPV (app.115k miles). The vehicle started shaking while shifting gears. Shaking increased with increasing speed. I took my car to a local Monroe shop. They recommended to have it checked for transmission problem. I made an appointment with Atlantic Transmission of Glen Burnie Maryland. The owner (Ed) test drove my minivan hooking the computer to locate the problem alongside me. After the test, he told me that it was not the transmission problem; it was a problem with Throttle Position Censor (TPS). He replaced the TPS while I waited. I paid $300 for this service. They were very professional and courteous. I am very satisfied with Atlantic Transmission Service."
You want the best, you got the best!
Dave Reuter of Towson MD
"You want the best, you got the best! I recently had an issue with my 2003 Ford Explorer. I took it to 3 different mechanics and no one could figure it out. Finally, a friend suggested I take it to Atlantic in Glen Burnie. I got a call the next day that the car was ready and the issue was solved. Thanks guys for being so knowledgeable. Lets put it this way. If you had to have an operation, would you want to use the guy who has done 5 of them or the guy who has done 2000. Enough said..."
Great service thanks to Ed! Would highly recommend to anyone because they also offer full service!!

"Atlantic Transmission rebuilt a transmission for my son's car! Great service thanks to Ed! Would highly recommend to anyone because they also offer full service!!"
I highly recommend Atlantic Transmission to anyone wanting top quality service.
Bob Liptak of Baltimore MD
"Great work. Atlantic Transmission Service did a great job in two ways for me: First, my 28 Tudor Ford hot rod needed a transmission, shift kit and drive shaft. When I purchased the rod, much of the existing equipment in these areas was in bad shape, some with poorly made parts that compromised performance and safety. Ed installed everything right and carefully explained the sourcing, process and work itself. I have also had other repairs and fabrication work done at Atlantic on the rod and am very well satisfied by all of it, including the workmanship and care that went into every step. Whether you need regular transmission type work done, or specialty work on a unique vehicle, I highly recommend Atlantic Transmission to anyone wanting top quality service."

It is nice to walk into a place where they talk to you and explain things rather than just take your keys and say we'll call you when we know what is wrong.
Fred Rasmussen of Ferndale MD
"Quality Excellent Incredible is all I have to say. My truck started slipping and immediately I brought the truck to Milt. He diagnosed the problem which was a known defect that the manufacturer knows about but was not covering. I had an extended warranty that the Company was not going to cover either. Milt went above and beyond to work with the adjuster to prove this was a warranty issue. I got my truck back a few days later with the transmission rebuilt by Milt and his team and it runs perfectly. This is the second vehicle that I had work done at Atlantic Transmission and if I ever need work on any of my other vehicles, I will definitely be getting them over to Ed's place. One more thing. It is nice to walk into a place where they talk to you and explain things rather than just take your keys and say we'll call you when we know what is wrong. Thanks again Ed. You have a lifetime customer"
I love my car and am very happy on the service they did. They even topped the air in my tires! I highly recommend Atlantic Transmission.

Erik Standish of Glen Burnie MD
"My 2004 Toyota Corolla was shifting hard, but only sporadically. I went to my usual auto repair shop in Glen Burnie and he highly recommended Atlantic Transmission Service. I am reluctant because I know men tend to think women do not know anything about cars. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the owner, Ed Wright, never spoke to me condescendingly. He didn't try to push anything that wasn't necessary. When I asked if this was a smart decision to replace my transmission, I was assured it was. I was then shown how good of condition my car was and it made sense. I love my car and am very happy on the service they did. They even topped the air in my tires! I highly recommend Atlantic Transmission."
Prices are reasonable and the crew is trustworthy and educated in their field
Leah Leu of Baltimore MD
"Trustworthy, Informative & Fair. I have taken my vehicles to Atlantic Transmission Service for years. Prices are reasonable and the crew is trustworthy and educated in their field. I always recieve options and an informed explanation for what is being done, why it is being done and what the cost will be. The Atlantic Transmission Service guys are quick and reliable and take good care of their customers (just take a look at the many "thank you notes" up on the walls). They even do more than just transmissions, and are experts in all aspects of car repairs - which is a big help to me since I have had bad experiences at other repair shops in the past and like to stick with a place I can trust - plus it is just more convenient for me to take my care to one place as opposed to many various specialists. Anyway, its a good place - give them a shot. Thanks, Atlantic Transmission Service - I'll certainly be back!"
