Manual transmissions have been around for a long time and if you have ever driven a manual you know how exciting they can be. Manual transmissions have also been referred to as standard transmissions, stick shifts, manual gearbox, or a simple gearbox. No matter what you call it, manual transmissions are fun to drive, better on fuel, reliable, and somewhat safer. So what do you know about manual transmissions; where did they come from, and how do they work? Dale and Ron's Auto Service Inc in Lawrence, KS knows, and now you will too.

semi diesel exhaust

We know how important a good exhaust setup is on a diesel truck. Whether you’re powered by a Cummins, a Duramax, a Powerstroke, or something else, your exhaust plays a major role in performance, engine sound, and even aesthetics. At Dale and Ron's Auto Service Inc in Lawrence, KS, our professional mechanics have the equipment, knowledge, and ability necessary to get your exhaust in shape.

mechanic working on an engine

Commercial trucks have heavy engines, and they spend a lot of time running, particularly at idle. As a result, the mounts that secure the engine to chassis of the truck have a tendency to wear out, causing all sorts of shaking and vibration that the driver will feel in the cab of the truck. At Dale and Ron's Auto Service Inc in Lawrence, we can take care of that for you.

tire change

Flat tires are a huge inconvenience. The only thing worse than having a flat on your way home from work is having to wait on a tow truck to come to get you. Dale and Ron's Auto Service Inc in Lawrence, KS wants to give you some tips on how to change your own tire so that you can keep money in your pocket and get your car back on the road.
