Check Engine Light
Benchmark Transmission understands that nothing can be more annoying than when driving around the roads of the greater Newark area, New Castle and Middletown only to look down and see the dreaded "check engine light" on the vehicle's dashboard. When light, the check engine signal is indicating that there may be something wrong with the tuning of the vehicle's engine, but it is still a long way from an accurate diagnosis. There are numerous triggers that could result in the check engine light turning on, and each trigger may be due to any number of different needed repairs. Benchmark Transmission tells our customers in the Newark area, New Castle and Middletown that after noticing the presence of the check engine light, it is best to have one of our highly trained ASE Certified technicians isolate what is causing the problem. The technicians at Benchmark Transmission in Newark are considered by many to be the most qualified in the industry and use only the most advanced diagnostic tools available to locate and correct the problem.
If you live in the Newark area and have a car or truck with an actively light check engine signal, Benchmark Transmission offers a inspection at our Benchmark Transmission area auto repair facility by team of automotive specialists. We invite you schedule an appointment as quickly as possible to avoid a potentially more serious maintenance issue.

We applaud your attention to detail, outstanding customer service, reasonable pricing, honesty, integrity and quality service!
James Schnatterer of Newark Delaware
"Integrity & Honesty is something that can be hard to find these days! Dante and his staff offer just that along with superb and quality service at Benchmark Transmission of Newark, DE. Having a daughter that just turned 16, we were faced not only putting her out on the roads, but finding a car that was safe and reliable for her to drive. Dante and staff were there to help us determine if our 1991 vehicle that needed a transmission was worth fixing and handing down to our daughter. Dante took the time to go over the vehicle to ensure safety and reliability. The transmission service they provided was OUTSTANDING quality and the car drives like new thanks to Benchmark. We can't thank Dante and his staff enough for being patient with us. His honesty in what needed to be done to make this car reliable enough to put our daughter in is something that we truly value. I applaud your attention to detail, outstanding customer service, reasonable pricing, honesty, integrity and quality service! We will continue to highly recommend your shop to anyone needed transmission work. James & Julie"
It was a pleasure to deal with Dante and Benchmark Transmissions.

"It was a pleasure to deal with Dante and Benchmark Transmissions. I hope you commend him, as well as their mechanics, on my appreciation."
I truly appreciate the professional manner and service that you and your technicians exhibited.
Charles Miller of Exton Pennsylvania
"You and your service team did an automatic transmission repair on my 2005 Nissan Armada in February 2010 and I wanted to send you a personal email thanking you for a job well-done. I truly appreciate the professional manner and service that you and your technicians exhibited. I just arrived home today from a 1500 mile trip to the Carolinas and the car ran great. Thanks for the great service. If I ever find the need for transmission service I will give your shop a call. Thank you. "
Benchmark saved me a trip to the shrink.What I thought would be a stressful day, hundreds of dollars in repairs and a missed dinner reservation for Valentines Day turned into an amazing day.Long story short: I just began a new job in Newark. I spent all of my most eyes on moving expenses so I was low on cash. It was the day after a major snowstorm so tow trucks were arriving late and several car shops were closed or couldn't work on my car

"Benchmark saved me a trip to the shrink.What I thought would be a stressful day, hundreds of dollars in repairs and a missed dinner reservation for Valentines Day turned into an amazing day.Long story short: I just began a new job in Newark. I spent all of my most eyes on moving expenses so I was low on cash. It was the day after a major snowstorm so tow trucks were arriving late and several car shops were closed or couldn't work on my car until Monday. I called Benchmark and Rich was amazing. He got my car at 12 and it was fixed by 4 p.m. I was able to get to Philadelphia and still made my dinner reservations. The cost to fix the transmission cooler lines? Free! I wish this company did general repairs because I'd go here over ANY shop! Thanks again, guys.Peter"
Benchmark Transmission operates with integrity, takes pride in its work, and treats the customers with courtesy
Richard Broad of Fairfax Virginia
"While I was in Middletown Delaware on business, I experienced what I thought was a transmission problem and took my car to Benchmark Transmission Middletown Delaware. Craig and John made a FREE assessment of the problem that morning, advised me of the cost, and indicated they could fix it by the next morning. When I asked if they could do the job that afternoon, they said they would try. I received a call back by 3:30 that afternoon indicating the car was ready. When I picked it up at 4, I was greeted in a pleasant manner and the charge was exactly what they had indicated. They had replaced a broken Transmission cooler line and the car now runs fine. Most places, realizing that I am not an auto mechanic, would have likely tried to install a new transmission, taken a couple of days to so, and charged a small fortune. I could not have been any more satisfied with the service. Benchmark Transmission operates with integrity, takes pride in its work, and treats the customers with courtesy I have rarely experienced. This is the finest experience I can recall ever in the maintenance of my car. It was a pleasure doing business with such high quality people."
I can recommend Benchmark Transmission without reservation. It's a pleasure dealing with you guys.
Robert Wickes of Landenberg Pennsylvania
"I am writing to offer my comments on the transmission service I have received from Benchmark Transmission. Benchmark has consistently stood behind their lifetime warranty which I purchased for my rebuilt transmission! When the small stainless steel bearing in the transmission failed at 270,000 miles, you diagnosed the problem and fixed it, all under the Benchmark warranty. You and the crew at Benchmark Transmission also correctly diagnosed the failure in the drivetrain center carrier bearing, which was causing annoying noise and vibration. Replacing the driveshaft assembly corrected the problem. Throughout my relationship with Benchmark Transmission I have been struck by your commitment to customer satisfaction, to staying with the problem and "getting it right" . To those of us who are committed to keeping a car running beyond 100,000 miles, I can recommend Benchmark Transmission without reservation. It's a pleasure dealing with you guys."
Benchmark Transmission gives me the confidence that as long as I want to keep my vehicles, they will keep them running good condition.
Rod Pelkey of Newark Delaware
"I am the owner of 3 late model Ford Explorers (92, 93, 95) and a 99 Subaru Legacy. I have been dealing with Benchmark, Dante (Owner) for over 8 years. I have not alway taken the best care of my vehicles in terms of preventive maintenance, and checking into the little noises that give you that feeling that something is wrong, therefore I've experienced more problems than necessary. Despite my neglect, whenever I've taken my cars to Benchmark, I have always been treated to the best of service. Benchmark has both replaced and repaired transmissions in my vehicles, and has done wonderful work, and at a reasonable cost. I have never been dissatisfied, Dante is always willing to work with me. I have nearly 300,000 miles on one explorer, 200,000 on anther, and over 150,000 on the Legacy. Benchmark Transmission gives me the confidence that as long as I want to keep my vehicles, they will keep them running good condition. Thanks Benchmark!"

Joanni Carter of Aston Pennsylvania
"Just wanted to thank you and your employees at Benchmark Transmission for a your hard work and patience that it took to fix the transmission in our Volkswagen Eurovan. We know that transmission repairs are what you do, but Benchmark Transmission were the only company that we could find that was willing to take on the job! We are very grateful for all the extra time and effort your company put into the job."
morning, they took the bus in and fixed it before we needed it for that day.
Jeffrey Frank of Middletown Delaware
"We had an issue with one of our Diesel buses. We needed the work done right away. We called Benchmark Transmission in Midddletown early in the morning, they took the bus in and fixed it before we needed it for that day. We were very pleased with the results. Would definitely recommend them."
