Should Engine Knocking Or Pinging Sound Concern Me?
Cherry City Transmission can understand why our customers in the greater Salem area would wonder if the presence of a knocking, or pinging sound, coming from their vehicles' engines should be of concern. Cherry City Transmission tells our customers that the presence of an occasional engine knocking or pinging noise will not necessarily be harmful to the engine. Additionally when an engine pinging or knocking noise is heard in the engine it does not indicate a switch should be made to a gasoline with a higher octane level. But if the pinging or knocking in the engine becomes persistent or heavy, that knocking sound could be the indication of a more serious car engine problem and to avoid any damage we suggest our customers bring their vehicle to Cherry City Transmission and let a member of our skilled auto repair mechanic team inspect the engine knocking to avoid any potential to the vehicle's engine. Of course Cherry City Transmission invites you to schedule online.
Cherry City Transmissions has EXEMPLARY, PROFESSIONAL CUSTOMER SERVICE!

"Cherry City Transmissions has EXEMPLARY, PROFESSIONAL CUSTOMER SERVICE! We are from Colorado and vacationing this summer driving through Salem OR on July 4th weekend in 100+ temperatures in our RV pulling a Jeep, when we had transmission failure on the Jeep. We were directed by other shops through AAA who were totally useless to us. The shop who towed our Jeep said it would be 8 days before they got parts to fix it and another week to get it done and the repair estimate would have caused anyone heart failure!! We were desperate as we couldn't stay in Salem OR for 2 weeks! By the grace of God, we found Sophar and his staff at Cherry City Transmissions!! We had our Jeep towed in on Saturday of the big weekend, when this shop is usually closed, and Sophar worked on our vehicle ALL holiday weekend and got our Jeep back to us on MONDAY and safely on the road to our destination! His fee was far less than what we had been quoted from the other shops and his professionalism and warranty of his work spoke volumes to us!! And his communication with us throughout was beyond our expectations. We are eternally grateful to Sophar at Cherry City Transmissions! "

Thanks to Sophar and his awesome crew I now have my baby back and she's running top-notch!
Kate Barnes of Salem Oregon
"I have a collectable car, one that I want to have and drive for the foreseeable future. I had the feeling it was going to cost me thousands of dollars to get it fixed due to this car being a rare version of a really popular style. Jerry was very familiar with the style, this issue mine had and that is was not only repairable, but he said he could do it in just a few. After checking around, I discovered Sophar's Cherry City Transmissions is where most shops in the are send their transmissions to be rebuilt. Hearing this and having the promise of a quick turn-around, I took my car to Sophar. The repairs took longer than expected--the ONLY complaint I have. The work was done right and the car runs better now than it did when I bought it! I never knew it could accelerate like it does now! Thanks to Sophar and his awesome crew I now have my baby back and she's running top-notch! Also, this is the only place in town that for the price gives a warranty for the work they do. Save money and headaches - take her to Sophar!"
The car now runs like it did when I brought it home for the first time. I would not take my car for repairs anywhere else.
Jack Skiles of Salem Oregon
"I highly recommend Cherry City Transmission for all your auto repair needs. I rolled my Jaguar into their garage with 49 codes keeping my engine on. I thought my car was done for good. Luckily Cherry City Transmission was recommended to me. Their excellent technicians through experience and intuition diagnosed and corrected all my car's problems. They are courteous and kept me in the loop about what was happening the entire time while being conscience of my budget. The car now runs like it did when I brought it home for the first time. I would not take my car for repairs anywhere else."
Their work comes with a substantial guarantee. Sophar and his staff were quite helpful and courteous as well.
Joe Johnston of Salem Oregon
"Cherry City Transmission did a first rate job of rebuilding our 1994 Volvo transmission. Their work comes with a substantial guarantee. Sophar and his staff were quite helpful and courteous as well."
I heard about you from a very reliable source, so when I needed some car work done I made an appointment to have it done and WOW what a GOOD JOB...WELL DONE.

By far the best, most honest transmission repair shop in Salem Oregon!
Christine Smith of Salem Oregon
"By far the best, most honest transmission repair shop in Salem Oregon! My husband had his transmission rebuilt by them, this is his show car, not his daily driver. It was beyond the warranty, when his car started having problems, he took it back to them, and Jerry Wood, the owner, once he looked into it, stated that he would fix it for FREE! At the time, he had an employee that wasn't top notch and did some poor repairs, and this gentleman worked on our car (has since been fired) Jerry didn't have to tell us this, he didn't have to fix it for free, we would have been none the wiser. He is an amazing mechanic, we have sent multiple people to him, with all of them being very pleased."
I couldn't be happier with the service I received at Cherry City Transmission.
Peter Tosi of Salem Oregon
"I just want to say that when I needed my transmission rebuilt, Cherry City was there. They performed work on time and exactly to the estimate. Also, the thing that surprised me was the 24 month national warrenty, good in the US and Canada. I couldn't be happier with the service I received at Cherry City Transmission. "
