Welcome to our Web site!

Rideout's Transmission was founded by Milton (Red) Rideout in the early 1950's.  Even though it was a general repair shop,  transmissions were his specialty even then.  We are a third generation, family owned business.   Operating in the same location for well over 60 years.

We repair most makes and models,  automatic and standard,   foreign and domestic, two and four wheel drive, All wheel drive, front and rear wheel drive, and overdrive.

We have the latest equipment and technology for testing and repairing computer controlled transmissions and transaxles.


Our goal is the same as it was in the 50's.  To do honest, dependable work at reasonable prices without sacrificing quality.  Always putting the customer first.



Located at 516 North Woods Ave. on the west side of Evansville, IN.  Two blocks west of Tekoppel Ave.  Between Hogue Rd. and Upper Mt. Vernon Rd.
