Our ASE and RepairPal certified technicians/shop work on all makes and models, including domestic, European/import, diesel, classic, and performance vehicles. We’re conveniently located at 631 Aero Way Escondido, CA 92029 between Auto Park Way and Don Lee Place. Our doors are open Mon-Fri: 8AM-5PM.

Regardless of your mechanical goals, the team at Trans Masters Auto Care can help you reach them. First, we can help you keep your vehicle running well for a long time with preventive maintenance services. This includes all the basics that any car may need, from oil changes and fluid checks to the specialized named protocols for your high-end luxury automobile. Prevention is important for staving off major problems and protecting your transportation’s original manufacturer’s warranty. Further, our experienced technicians can assist you with the full range of auto repairs. Examples include planned periodic repairs such as brake pad exchanges, tune-ups, and battery replacements, as well as larger and perhaps unexpected work like engine repair, timing chain/belt tightening/replacement, and troubleshooting electrical problems. As you can surmise from our name, we also fix transmissions. Whether you drive an automatic or sport a manual, we’re your best choice for transmission rebuild or replacement. In addition, we take care of all the related services your transmission needs, such as fluid replacements and flushes. Whether your vehicle is exhibiting grinding gears, difficult shifts, or another tell-tale sign, our professionals are here to help. Unlike most shops, we still build our transmissions in-house. What you might not know, however, is that we’re also a performance shop. Our chassis dyno lets us tune carburetors and test the vehicles here. That makes us the go-to shop for classic muscle car enthusiasts, hot rod drivers, and drag racers. Thus, we’re here for everyone–from the minivan family driver to the antique auto enthusiast to the newly formed dragster team.
Very Polite, able to set it up so it worked on my day off. Asked for the VIN number to make sure he had the correct parts prior to bringing in. Appreciate the professional aspect and happy with the work. Less than what the dealership was going to charge for maintenance. I highly recommend them.
Finding a reliable and professional mechanic can be a process when you have an older vehicle that needs love in the right spots, i found these guys through google and gave them a shot based on the reviews i read. I was given calls for every procedure they wanted to do, for parts needed to be ordered, faults they found; i got to the point to where i trusted the work they felt was necessary and let them make the decision, i was still called to verify. Rick, Brett and the rest of the team handle… Read More
Well, I’ll tell you what…is your car sad, worn out, used and tired just like your love life? No need to fret, just have those calender models over at Trans Masters fix up your ride. Not only have they thoroughly fixed whatever issues my vehicles may have, but they also repair other things that may end up causing issues in the long run, just like my ex-wife. Unlike the demon I married though, I’m absolutely thrilled about hopping in my truck and taking it for a muddy spin after these guys gi… Read More
Trans Masters is a reliable service center, something that is rare today. I have always had positive experiences with them.
I chose this shop because they know their stuff and they have proven there worth mating my 1939 Dodge 3spd OD trans to the 1953 Dodge 230 flathead 6. The setup works great in my 1933 Dodge DP6. I suggest you give these guys a try, they have proven they know their classic setups and hot rod setups.
My plan was to drive my 64.5 Mustang from Seattle to San Diego and then onto Texas for a car rally. I made it across the California border and started leaking transmission fluid. We trailered our car to San Diego. While on the road, I started reaching out to San Diego Mustang groups on Facebook to see who they recommended for transmission work. Soon everyone was insisting on Trans Masters. Curtis and his team have been amazing. I feel so lucky that they took on my project and have helped us… Read More
Rick and his staff could not have been better. Our 1992 Toyota needed a new transmission which is no longer made. Through their contacts they were able to locate a rebuilt transmission. We were over joyed to have our car back and running like new! Bob
I don’t write reviews, but this was a positive experience I have to share. A fellow hot rodder highly recommended TransMasters auto care in Escondido. I needed my annual transmission service on my 700r4. Before I made the appointment I did some research about the business. They have a passion for repairing and improving performance vehicles such as, your hot rod, classic’s, drag racing cars, off road vehicles and your daily driver. I meet with the owner, Rick Frye Jr. and the head mechani… Read More
We are one of the few that actually still build transmissions in house, and have an in house chassis Dyno. We tune carburetors and test on our Dyno.
