About ACE Transmission

By 1981, Marvin Gott had personally rebuilt thousands of transmissions working for other companies. It was during that time that he noticed that the way things were being done in the industry weren’t always best for the customer. Frankly, he just got tired of seeing that, and one day he decided to do something about it. With just $1,200 and a small, one-bay shop, he and Darla founded Ace Transmission.

Since February of 1981, the standard for transmission remanufacturing and
replacement in Springfield has been held to a higher standard. “ACE” is the title
reserved for the fastest, most precise professionals. And by wearing that name on the uniform, Marvin, Darla, their sons, and the ACE team come to work everyday knowing they must live up to that legacy.

We believe in doing the right thing, not the easy thing. We believe you and your team deserve to install every transmission with confidence. And we believe that to deliver exceptional service, we must continue to hire exceptional people.

It’s because of these beliefs that ACE has held the position of #1 transmission
remanufacturing facility in Southwest Missouri since 1981.

We look forward for the opportunity to get you back on the road as quickly as possible!

The ACE Team


Every transmission we install comes with a 3 year / 100,000 mile warranty.

And if anything happens to the transmission before then, we'll give you a new one—no questions asked.

Great experience!! Service was finished faster than I expected. I would definitely recommend this shop for anyone having transmission problems.

I was traveling from KS to TN and while going through Springfield my transmission went out. It was a Tuesday, and I called 3 other shops to get an idea how soon I could be on the road again, all three said it would take until late Friday at the earliest. Ace was the fourth and last place I called; they had the transmission in stock and could do the repair the very next day. I showed up around 8:45 in the morning and was on the road again by 1:30. Fast service and friendly people. I hope my trans never goes out again, but if it does I want to find a place like Ace.

One of my work trucks had the transmission go out. Ace was the first placed I called. After a few phone calls and being referred back to Ace by a few other companies, they came and got the truck and started putting in the rebuilt transmission the same day. It's very important to get my trucks back on the road as soon as possible and these guys pulled through.

Best Transmission shop in town hands down. Will never go anywhere else!

Absolute pleasure dealing with Charlie and the guys. They saved me a sizeable amount of money and gave me peace of mind. I cannot recommend this place enough; it's rare to find a business like this nowadays.
