transmissionHi! My name is Tom Donney and I am the owner of Fort Dodge Transmission. I founded the company in the fall of 1980 at the age of 23, as a foreign car repair and transmission shop. I started the business with just $25 in my pocket and a handful of tools, without any financial backing to help me. Even so, with good customers, excellent personnel, and faith, we have slowly built the business, one day at a time and one dollar at a time, by giving our customers quality professional service and products at reasonable prices backed by the best warranty program available. We sincerely hope you will consider us for any and all of your transmission needs.

Advanced Technology

By utilizing the latest in computer technology we are able to promptly and accurately process your orders and maintain historical records on your account. Also, the utilization of state of the art Dyno testing equipment ensures the proper functioning of your transmission order. Every transmission, front and rear wheel drive, undergoes a 15-20 minute simulated quality control road test before it leaves our shop.
