When you should check & change transmission fluids.


How often should you get your transmission fluid changed?  The transmission industry's standard is 25,000 to 30,000 miles or every two years.  If you tow a trailer, 15,000 to 20,000 miles is recommended depending on the amount of towing. Motorhomes can vary with the amount that they are driven. The best thing that you can do is check the fluid regularly; notice the color, odor and level of the fluid. If you notice a change in the color, odor or level, have it checked by one of our trained technicians.

What type of fluid should you use? The suggested fluids differ from one manufacturer to another and you can check the owner's manual to ensure the correct transmission fluid is utilized per your specific auto or truck make and model.  However, here our technicians have a computer program that will insure the right fluid goes into your transmission. We offer a full line of transmission fluids to cover all the various demands of any car or truck.

72 Nova SS Receives New Life After Autocross Event


Ridetech, a well known Jasper-based high performance auto supplier, hosted a brand new street car event appropriately named Road Trip-Cars and Cones 2016. Around one hundred thirteen drivers registered for the event which featured four autocross events in five days with a scenic cruise route which wound through North Carolina, Tennessee and Kentucky, ending with a dinner and after party at Ridetech's facility here in Jasper, Indiana.

Chris Rhinehart, an event participant, from Frederick Maryland, experienced engine trouble near Bowling Green, Kentucky. Rather than have his Nova towed all the way back home, Chris decided to have it towed to the Ridetech facility and purchase a JASPER engine. Chris contacted Jasper Engines & Transmissions and spoke with veteran Authentic/Performance Sales Rep. Larry Salmon, who discussed Chris' options and arranged the delivery of a JASPER Class-1 Chevrolet 350 engine on Friday.

Saturday morning at 7AM, Chris and three of his buddies began the engine exchange and and by two o'clock in the afternoon the Nova was purring and as good as new. Chris ended his weekend on a happy note with a smooth 800 mile cruise back to Maryland. We would like to thank Chris for his engine purchase and hope he enjoys his JASPER-Powered Nova at many more autocross events!

Keep it cool! Check your A/C


Summer driving is here now and it's time to check your A/C before you need it.  Sitting in traffic when temperatures soar without a properly functioning air conditioning (A/C) system is the last place most drivers want to be. To help avoid this uncomfortable situation, the non-profit Car Care Council recommends that motorists be car care aware and have their A/C system checked annually to make sure it is working at peak performance when they need it most.

We honor our military.


There is no greater service than to protect our men, women, and children with selfless acts of courage and stepping up to provide a wall of safety for those you do not personally know.  Our military does that every day with no thought to what they may have to sacrifice only that they feel led to do so and while we do not know all of their names on Memorial Day we do take the opportunity to thank them as a whole and individually.  What they do is amazing, courageous, and personally here we honor them. 

Thank you for protecting our values, our families, our business, our homes, our country.
