Choosing a Repair Facility

Cooling System • Air Conditioning • Diagnostics
The Acclaim in-house transmission facility specializes in vintage and performance transmissions tailored to your car or truck. At Acclaim we also have full capabilities to change your transmission from stick shift to automatic and even upgrade to one for mileage performance. We are simply the best in the field at diagnosing and adjusting all automatic transmissions from 1946 to pre 2000 and are ready to get you back on the road today.
Acclaim Collector Car services all car and truck A/C systems. We can repair original systems or install a modern and more efficient system. If your car has never been equipped with A/C, we can design and install a completely new system to take you comfortably through summer.
Whether it’s a truck, 4x4 or car, an engine that runs to hot or cold will dramatically shorten the life of the engine and transmission. Whether repairing or designing a cooling system, we will make sure you have the proper system for your specific vehicle.
Maintenance is not a repair. It does however prevent premature failure of major components with prescribed and regular checks in order to avoid expensive and unnecessary repairs. The older and more equipped a vehicle is, the more service will be required. Only a seasoned mechanic can see what is needed to keep your car safe and running properly.

Suspension • Steering • Brakes
The suspension, steering and braking systems were engineered to work in unison. Any modifications to the original system can compromise the system, leading to unsafe conditions or premature failure of components. Repairing or upgrading original systems demands careful attention to detail and careful planning.
