“Our Family Taking Care of Your Family”


Every vehicle that moves has a transmission. Transmissions convert the power, or rotation, generated by the engine to the wheels via the driveline. Transmissions are necessary to make autos into automobiles. If your transmission doesn’t function, your vehicle doesn’t move. We work on all types of transmissions. Standards and automatic.  We also resurface flywheels in-house. We can get your vehicle moving again.


The driveline includes the components that connect the transmission to the drive wheels. It consists of axels, driveshafts, joints, differentials, and even wheels. Drivelines differ for rear-wheel drive, front-wheel drive, all-wheel drive, and four-wheel drive. It is not rocket science, but it does require expertise. We will make sure it works. We even do in-house resurfacing of flywheels. Dean & Daughters’ Repair Shop Ltd. has the expertise to get your driveline running like new.


Sorry, we aren’t offering calculus lessons here. Drivetrains for vehicles have differentials too. What is the difference? We are glad that you asked. The differentials we work on are gear trains that deal with 3 shafts. The driveshaft and 2 axels. There is some physics involved here. The differential allows the wheels to rotate at different speeds as the vehicle corners. The outside wheel rotates faster than the inside wheel thanks to the differential.

Gasoline Engine Repair

The vast majority of vehicles on the road today have gasoline engines. Older models have carburetors, newer ones have fuel injection. They are referred to as internal combustion engines. Gasoline is the fuel that these engines run on. Some run on and on and on. If your vehicle has run on or any other gas engine issues, we can help. 30-years as a journeyman mechanic comes in handy. We can repair and maintain your gasoline engines.

Diesel Engine Repair

Diesel engines are also internal combustion engines. They convert the chemical energy of diesel fuel into mechanical energy. They differ from gas engines as they do not have spark plugs. Hot compressed air ignites the diesel fuel to achieve internal combustion. Diesel engines have higher compression ratios. They provide better fuel economy and more power. We repair diesel engines in your vehicle. Bring it on down.
