Eagle Transmission Irving

Eagle Transmission Irving is dedicated to providing you with quality services.  Our goal is to serve you better.  We strive for customer satisfaction!

Searching for a transmission repair shop can be an overwhelming task.  The need for any car repair can cause stress and all you want is someone to do it right!  Here at Eagle Transmission Irving we offer a safe, comfortable environment with ethical business practices.  We will spend time discussing your car problems with you and will explain our diagnosis.

Here is some information you should know:
With the technological advances being made in the automotive industry, the days of simple transmission repairs may be gone forever.

As recently as a decade ago, a transmission specialist may have only needed to work on 10 different models of transmissions.  These models were the mainstream and were easily stocked.  Whenever parts were needed, they were accessible and relatively inexpensive.

Today, a transmission specialist must keep up with as many as 350 models.  The cost of maintaining transmission systems has risen due to the availability of parts and the fact that some parts have to be purchased from the dealer.  This increased variety, along with the growing complexity of transmission technology, means that transmission specialists must have more advanced training and continuous education.

The transmission system is usually ignored until there is a major problem.  Many people who notice their car is not running properly ignore the problem with the hope that the symptoms will work themselves out.  This could result in more extensive damage to your vehicle as the problem becomes more severe.

The following symptoms may indicate a problem with your transmission:
failing or delaying when shifting; thumping or lagging when shifting; the engine speeds up when you apply the gas but the car doesn
t; red, pink, or brown puddles under your car; the need to add transmission fluid; unusual noises such as whining sounds when you step on the accelerator; a grinding noise; a banging noise when you come to a stop; your car fails to move when cold but improves once it is warmed up; and the engine overheats.

If you suspect there is a problem with your car, have it checked out before more damage is done!
  We invite you to bring your car to Eagle Transmission Irving so WE can check it out the right way!  Call us TODAY!  We are The One to Trust!

Take an adventurous girl from Texas, fill her with romantic notions, whisk her off to Vegas for a decade of excitement, then return her to the comforts of home, and you’ve got the makings of a photographer with a flair for documenting both the drama and the passions of the heart. Jamye’s ability to capture heartfelt emotions, nervous glances, and timeless beauty is what makes her images become unique family heirlooms. "I started my career shooting models, actors and musicians in Las Vegas but find that I prefer capturing the reality of emotions and drama that comes with real life events and people. Being a witness to and documenting the outward expression of powerful emotions on a day such as a wedding is truly a joyful thing", she says.

I want to extend to M-T members 6 months of free advertising in my app in exchange for handing out our download cards and letting us put an instagrat sticker on their door.  We will set you up with a geo-fence with your offer and/or put you in the merchant listings.  It's up to the member to choose what they want.  The only thing I ask is they set up an offer strong enough to get someone to respond quickly.

Contact me, Scott Martin at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

I can get you set-up within 24 hours and I will bring the cards and sticker by within a few days.

Let's get this thing going!


instagrat was developed to help small and medium businesses get on a level playing field with national and international companies by using mobile marketing.  instagrat puts you in the pocket of consumers.

A person is in your area and either does or doesn't know about you.  They have instagrat on their smartphone or smart device.  instagrat detects that user and sends them your offer, coupon, information or message.

It's that simple.

Wouldn't you like to invite people into your business while you are helping other customers?  It's like being in hundreds of places at once!

No other mobile marketing system does what instagrat does.  And you can take advantage of instagrat by using your barter dollars.

Silver Health Centers

 Don't know what to do about aches and pains? We can HELP!

Silver Health Centers was created by Drs. Ana and Glen Silver. Both doctors graduated from Parker Chiropractic College in 1990. Soon thereafter, they began their private practices, one located in Oak Cliff and the other clinic in Richardson, Texas. The clinics, which now have a total of four chiropractors, are multi-faceted and multi-disciplined.

People of all ages present with varied physical ailments and are treated safely and effectively, with compassion and genuine care. The doctor's treatment program is geared towards individualized treatment plans for long lasting and permanent results. A team approach is used regarding treatment with the patient taking an active role in their recovery.

Our Approach
At Silver Chiropractic we believe that optimum health is a combination of many facets of life. It includes physical, mental, chemical and emotional responses working synergistically to help balance life. Positive and healthy attitude, proper nutrition, exercise, a normal functioning nervous system, healthy bones and muscles, decreased stress, proper rest, and proper health management are all required to obtain and maintain optimum health.

As a patient at SHC you can expect to receive proper health management for your needs. The doctors and staff work as a team to create an individualized health plan to fit your specific needs. Their specialty involves the diagnosis and treatment of the neuromuscuoskeletal system, which involves the spine, nerves, disc, ligaments, bones and muscles of the entire body and its function to all other systems and the body as a whole.

It is well known that "the nervous system is the master system which controls all other systems." Therefore, we strive to assist your nervous system to perform at its optimum level. Our doctors look for the underlying cause of your health problem and in turn treat the whole person. We utilize the most advanced and safe treatments, techniques and procedures to assist the patient with proper recovery and a healthier life.

We would love to meet you and discuss your health concerns. Please call to schedule a FREE consultation. We’ll be happy to answer any questions you may have. Please call or come visit one of our convenient locations.

The Last Detail

Safer poured-in-place rubberized surfacing for playgrounds, running tracks, anti-slip areas and more!

In recent years, an increasing number of municipalities, schools and business and parks and recreations have been prompted by regulations and consumer demands to find alternatives to hazardous or high-maintenance recreations surfaces. Obsolete products such as concrete, shredded rubber, pea gravel, sand, and asphalt are being replaced with bonded rubber surfaces that are safer, long-lasting, impervious to weather and aesthetically more diverse and colorful.

Here are a few facts about our re-engineered poured-in-place rubberized systems:
* 20 year life expectancy
* ADA compliant (wheelchair accessible).
* ASTM tested to protect children from a 12ft fall zone
* Made of 100% recycled tire buffing’s rubber (the shock absorbent layer) and E.P.D.M virgin rubber, the top coat manufactured by B.R.G Stockholm, England and ship to the U.S.A opposed to scrap rubber from Ohio.
* A 10 year warranty
* Up to $10,000 disabled tax credit (form 8826).
* 60% color (green, red, blue, tan) 40% black (Graphic included/special design).
* Most systems are three to four inches.
* Price is $11.00 per sq. ft.

From the President...July 2017

Written by Byron Lester on .

In trade exchanges around the globe, there are many similarities - both positive and negative. As trade exchange owners, we often choose to extol the virtues of barter, but sometimes we can’t get away from periodic questions that are awkward at best to answer. I’d like to address the 3 biggest concerns heard from members.

First, there are inevitably a few members who accrue trade dollars quickly but don’t spend very well. Their common question is “Where can I spend my trade dollars?” My initial impulse is often to say something sarcastic like “The options are right there in front of you if you would simply take the time to look at the information we send you”, but I control myself and don’t actually say this. I understand that a member like this usually has good cash flow so the acceptance of a trade isn’t the concern. They simply require a bit more “hand holding” than other members and are looking for assurances that the spending options in the system are legitimate.

Another commonly asked question focuses on specifics that are not available in MerchanTrade’s exchange. In those instances, I simply acknowledge we don’t currently have that requested service or product but would appreciate the member’s help in bringing in that type of business. Often, if a local business owner is aware that a sale will be lost if they don’t barter, they may participate in a deal since trade dollars at retail for existing product or idle time is a better option than not making the sale at all. Creativity is the key here.

Finally, some members want to constantly be reassured about the strength of the exchange. Generally, I defer that question to the members themselves. Since member businesses make up each exchange, they are an essential part of where the exchange is as well as where it’s going. Staying in good communication with fellow members about their experiences, feelings about the ownership, members coming in as well as leaving the exchange, fairness of trading terms of other members, trade dollar values, etc. all add up to a level of confidence which contributes to the level of growth of each exchange.

We encourage open communication and honest constructive criticism within our exchange. If we all continue to do our part, we'll continue to grow in the proper way. Thank you for your trust and commitment to our program.

Traders' Forum...July 2017

How often can I be listed in the Weekly Email Spotlight?

The answer to this question depends on a variety of factors. First, we try to determine what level of trade dollars a member is comfortable maintaining in his or her account. This can vary dramatically from member to member so understanding a member’s comfort level in the exchange influences the likelihood of promotion in the weekly email.

A second factor is the type of business. In bartering, some types of businesses need more promotion than others due to demand. Since all types of businesses are not sought after equally, the advertising process is weighted to maintain a more efficient overall demand in the exchange.

A final factor is the quality of the trade terms. If an offering does not qualify at least as a good trade deal, it will not be listed. We are not interested in promoting excellent cash deals because that’s not our business. Those members who are sincerely interested in offering quality products and services with excellent trading terms and value will be the ones who are rewarded.
