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.
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."
Very nice people to work with they fixed many things wrong with my RAV 4. I will be going back to them when needed. Thanks guys.

Cherry City Transmission repaired my clutch and it has been working perfect for 3 years now!
Lynn Stransky of Portland
"My clutch went out and needed extensive repair. The last 2 times it was worked on the other people botched the job. It was amazing that I was even able to get the truck down there from Portland. Cherry City Transmission repaired my clutch and it has been working perfect for 3 years now! The price was right and workmanship excellent."
They did on my car, and fit it in during the busy holiday season, and did it for a fair price. I am a lifetime Cherry City Transmissions customer!
Stewart Brown of Salem Oregon
"When the transmission went out on my car, I did not know where to take it. I was referred to Cherry City Transmissions by our family mechanic. I checked around and found this to be the very best place. My car has a transmission that is tough to rebuild correctly. I belong to several car forums, and hear disastrous stories about transmission rebuild mishaps all the time. I was worried at first. Most guys that own cars like mine, order rebuilt transmissions from two or three rebuilders in the country, who specialize in only these transmissions. However, this is my daily driver, so I could not wait for a trans to be build and shipped across the US. Jerry (the Owner) at Cherry City Transmissions certainly does know the idiosyncrasies of my trans. The rebuild he recommended included some parts designed to correct the weak parts in my trans. It has been over two years now, and I am happy to report that my transmission is still working better than new! I am a car guy. This car has it's own web page. I work on it almost daily, so this car means a lot to me. I can safely recommend Jerry and crew at Cherry City Transmissions. They do an excellent job! They did on my car, and fit it in during the busy holiday season, and did it for a fair price. I am a lifetime Cherry City Transmissions customer!"

Let's face it, a woman's lack of knowledge in the automotive area is often exploited. I've seen it. Got transmission problems... go with Cherry City Transmission, you will not regret it.
Scott Johnson of Salem Oregon
"When I needed transmission work prior to coming to Cherry City Transmissions, it had never been a pleasant experience. I chose Cherry City this time for my wife's van transmission problems because of, well, a coupon offer. After talking initially to Jerry I felt that maybe this experience would be different, and it was. Work was completed prior to when it was promised. The cost was what, Jerry said it would be... and it was fixed right the first time. Since that event, I have had 3 other vehicles' transmissions serviced and again, prompt service with no hidden extra costs. This has been the only automotive experience that I feel that anyone's wife would not be taken advantage of. Let's face it, a woman's lack of knowledge in the automotive area is often exploited. I've seen it. Got transmission problems... go with Cherry City Transmission, you will not regret it. "

Cherry City Transmissions has EXEMPLARY, PROFESSIONAL CUSTOMER SERVICE!

George and Evelyn Montoya of Thornton Colorado
"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! "
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."
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."
