3 Major And 3 Minor Transmission Repairs

Transmission repairs are not all equal. There are minor and there are major transmission repairs. Here, we will go over three of each.

Minor Transmission Repair #1 – A Computer Scan

It’s 2021, so of course your vehicle has a computer in it. Unless you’re driving something very old, your vehicle probably has an onboard computer, and it can play a key role in diagnosing transmission problems. While it’s not particularly difficult to interface with your vehicle’s onboard computer, it does require the right technology and knowhow; this isn’t something even the handiest of car enthusiasts can do in their home garage. But at Mister Transmission, we can connect to your vehicle’s computer to find problem areas, such as faulty sensors or defective solenoid packs.

Major Transmission Repair #1 – Finding The Right Part To Replace

The computer doesn’t always give us a clear treasure map leading us to problem parts. That’s when things can get tricky. Having to hunt around to try to find what’s going wrong in a transmission can be a lengthy and aggravating process. It might even require the removal of the transmission from the chassis, and any time that becomes necessary, it’s a major transmission repair.

Minor Transmission Repair #2 – A Partial Reseal Job

Transmission fluid is the lifeblood of automatic (and some manual) transmissions. You don’t want to be leaking it. Thankfully, most leaks can be isolated and resealed without too much trouble, for example an axel seal or pan gasket.

Major Transmission Repair #2 – A Complete Reseal Job

There are times, however, when a complete reseal is necessary, because of multiple leaks, a coming apart of a transmission, or a difficult to locate leak. A complete reseal is, as you would expect, more involved than a partial one.

Minor Transmission Repair #3 – Automatic Transmission Fluid Change

Because transmission fluid is so important, it’s vital to keep it in good condition. This means checking it regularly (ideally once a month) and topping it up when necessary. We can do this for you at Mister Transmission easily. A little more involved is changing the transmission fluid, where we let the current fluid drain out, examine it for particulate matter, and replace it with a new filter.

Major Transmission Repair #3 – A Transmission Overhaul

Sometimes, because of an inability to find the problem part(s) or because so much of the transmission is damaged, it needs to be replaced. You can replace a transmission. which is a bit less labour intensive, but we generally advise against it. The refurbished replacement often has unknown provenance which could be problematic. Instead, every part should be examined and cleaned or replaced.

I had my 2007 Toyota Rav 4 transmission rebuilt almost 2 years ago. Decided to bring it back for a transmission fluid change and for another check before the warranty expires. What I didn’t tell them is that there’s already a leak (my neighbour told me). I’m giving this business a 5 star review because they are honest. They told me it had a leak and they had to replace the seal, and it was still under warranty. Wow! Thank you!!!

I have a 2015 Mazda 3 with automatic transmission. It is having jerking issue at 2nd gear when the car is cold. One of my known mechanic suggested Ken for transmission issues. I went there and parked my car overnight to make sure it is cold. In morning, Ken drove it and figure out instantly it was a computer mechanism trying to save fuel by engaging clutch and gear differently, which is normal and I should not spend any money on it. I liked Ken's experience and knowledge and his guidance which saved me going broke.

Had a leak from the pan and front seal on my transmission. Despite being busy these guys were able to seal up the pan within one day. No leaks from the pan. I decided to hold off on the main seal as it is a slow leak and I'll deal with it in the winter when the cars in storage. Thanks
