we just started a new transmission shop here in Pensacola.

its called "Top Gun Transmission" located at 403 Beverly parkway. 32505. 850-725-6786

we are not associated with "top gun custom exhaust", just choose to keep the name for the generic advertisement that it already had.

website address is http://topguntransmissions.com

online e-commerce store: http://topguntrans.com

come see us and mention Pensacola fishing forum to SAM for some extra discount on all transmission work.

our basic transmission service is $27.95 + tax and we are offering free towing with a 30% discount on all transmission rebuilds.

guaranteed work at a low low price.

we don't cut corners and always buy all brand new parts for your rebuild.

try us out, you will not be disappointed.

I know the Mods are going to move this, but they just rebuilt a trans (4L80E) for me, and their price was really good. No problems with the transmission after the rebuild.

I may have to come see you. My 1997 F-150 has a shutter in the tranny that comes and goes. ive been on the fence as to whether or not to worry about it now (trans work can get expensive), or just let it go until it goes and then have it rebuilt. What are your thoughts? And congrats on new business! O*D*W

I have a 2004 Mercedes C230 Compressor w/ AT tranny... and I am having problems with tranny I believe... When I am driving, it sometimes shifts hard, then drives fine... And if I floor it to pass someone, when I let off the gas, it shifts down to neutral and won't go back into gear until I drop to 20-25 mph.... I put my code reader on it and it read P0730 "Incorrect Gear Ratio"
This just started about 2 months ago, I still drive it everyday, just don't pass anyone or floor it... Please advise to help or opinions, or what you would charge me to diagnose the problem...

speaking of transmissions, I don't know about these guys, but I do know to stay away, FAR AWAY, from Gene's transmissions in P'cola off nine mile road, they are HORRIBLE!!!! The short of the story it they put a brand spanking new transmission in a jeep for me and forgot to fill it with fluid. So naturally it burned up and was ruined. They did absolutely nothing to fix the problem they screwed up. So ever since then I have tried to let everyone know that talks about transmissions, that Genes sucks! Buyer beware if you choose to go there.

i have a few additives that i can recommend for your transmission issue. definitely not a permanent fix however it will more than likely prolong the life of your transmission.

come see us here at: 403 beverly parkway. 32505 and i will personally make sure that we check out your vehicle and give you some honest recommendations.

thanks

hello,

first thing: we do not charge anything for diagnostics. you can bring your car to my shop at: 403 beverly parkway. 32505. i will get my trans builder to test drive it and put my scanner on it to lookup codes. furthermore, my scanner also provides live data streams so i can do a few tests on your transmission while the test drive is being done. in most cases incorrect gear ratio can be a adaptive learning issue. (did you by any chance, change your battery or your battery died out on the car???). However, the transmission jumping into neutral state is a big ???? because it usually means bad transmission.
i would also suggest that you check the condition of your trans fluid, try and smell it, see if it smells burnt up.
all in all, i would love for you to bring your car here to my shop and for us to give your car a free diagnostic.

best of luck

I am sorry that you had such a bad experience with a local transmission shop however i assure you and all forum members, that we stand behind our work. i always buy brand new parts, fluids and additives for each car and personally make sure that they are being put in, upon each rebuild.

one of the main reasons, why top gun transmission came into being was that i got sick and tired of being ripped off by these local transmission shops. my family owns quiet a few used car lots here in Pensacola and we use to send over all transmission jobs to these local transmission shops. I remember sending a 1999 Honda civic over for a transmission rebuild and paying around 1800 (with 30 day warranty) for it where as i am doing the same rebuild here at top gun transmission for 1100-1300 dollars with a 1 year warranty.

I stopped by Top Gun Transmission today for alittle insight on my 03 Duramax, I talked to sam and he test drove my truck, then he had one of his mechanics test drive it.. Turns out I dont have any tranny issue's but they hooked the computer up to it and found a few codes.. So I asked Sam,what I owed him he said nothing...This is what we do and we take care of are customers..I'm pretty sure most shops charge to hook that 5 thousand dollar machine up to your truck,But Sam did not..
Thanks again guys..
Bill
