Here’s More on Our Auto Service Expertise

  • Electrical Diagnostics

    Auto Electrical Diagnostics

    Modern automotive electrical systems can cause perplexing issues that aren’t easy to identify or fix accurately. Plus, auto electrical issues aren’t just annoying, they can create safety risks. With years of experience and proven auto electrical know-how, our ASE-certified repair technicians can solve any electrical diagnostic problem, no matter how challenging. From a misfiring starter to repeat dead battery to dimming headlights, we can troubleshoot and repair all types of auto electrical malfunctions. 

  • Check Engine Light

    Check Engine Light

    If your check engine light is on, Leale’s Auto Repair & Transmissions has the equipment and skill to properly diagnose the issue and handle any necessary repairs. A thorough check engine light diagnostic is more than just connecting a scanner to your vehicle and pulling trouble codes, as a code does not always indicate exactly what is wrong with your car. In the San Jose area, our mechanics are known for their diagnostic capabilities and figuring out precisely what’s wrong with the vehicles we service.  For more information read here.

  • Transmission Diagnostics

    Transmission Service & Diagnostics

    Any transmission repair must begin with a proper diagnosis. Our transmission diagnostics service is the first step in our process of repairing all transmission problems, and, in many cases, we find that cars with transmission problems do not need a new transmission. In fact, with modern vehicles, what often appears as a major transmission issue can be solved by replacing sensors and fixing wiring malfunctions. Without a correct transmission diagnosis, however, the only thing a mechanic can do is through parts at your vehicle, and you may pay for something you don’t need.

  • Transmission Rebuilds

    Transmission Rebuilds

    Your transmission is a complex automotive system required for your vehicle to run. If you’re experiencing transmission problems, it’s important to find a talented and knowledgeable mechanic when it comes to having your transmission rebuilt. In San Jose and the surrounding area, Leale’s Auto Repair & Transmissions is the leading expert in transmission rebuilds. We started out as a transmission shop over 50 years ago—our experience is hard to match—and today, our shop is equipped with state-of-the-art tools and equipment for repairing and rebuilding modern transmissions.

  • Vehicle Maintenance

    Auto Maintenance

    Most vehicle manufacturers recommend a 30K, 60K, 90K, and 120K preventive maintenance service schedule for optimum performance and efficiency. However, as experienced auto mechanics, we know many drivers don’t stick to a routine preventive maintenance schedule—hey, you’re busy and your car’s running fine, right? In fact, you could end up neglecting something important and inadvertently cause yourself to need a major repair down the road. Let us help you prioritize car care, and you’ll enjoy a longer lasting vehicle.
