If you need your transmission serviced, there’s no better place to go than Mister Transmission; here are four key services we can provide for you.
Many transmission services revolve around transmission fluid. This makes sense because transmission fluid is absolutely integral to the health of your transmission. Most vehicles in Canada have an automatic transmission. These transmissions need automatic transmission fluid, or ATF, to lubricate and cool them. Some manual transmissions also use ATF, while others use gear oil, motor oil, or transmission oil.
You can’t just put transmission fluid in your vehicle once and leave it there forever, though. You should check it regularly to see if you’ve lost fluid from leaks, evaporation, or from overheated fluid sticking to parts. For models with dipsticks, this is easy enough to do and we can show you how at Mister Transmission.
But even if your levels are good, your fluid itself might not be. Fluid can become degraded over time, or even burned. This fluid can do more damage than good. If your transmission fluid smells bad or looks opaque rather than a semi-translucent red, green, or blue. You probably need your fluid changed. We can do this for you.
Perhaps the most special service we offer is the Mister Transmission Multi-Check Inspection. This is a unique inspection process we’ve developed to maximize the chances of catching any transmission problem, even very small and minor ones.
The Multi-Check Inspection consists of a visual inspection, a fluid check, a road test, and an on-board diagnostics scan. This last one is a computer scan. Modern vehicles have on-board computers. We have technology that allows us to interface with your vehicle’s computer to discover where any problems might be.
Sometimes, we need to get underneath your vehicle to get a good look at things. This is called a lift inspection. During this transmission service, we can check components such as:
The pan examination gives us an insight into what’s going on inside your transmission. We’ll drain your fluid and have a look. We expect to see some particulate matter, but if there’s a lot, this suggests that there’s something wrong with your transmission.
No matter what transmission service your vehicle needs, we at Mister Transmission can help. Our transmission experts can provide any service you need and solve any transmission problem there is. Please get in touch with us today to schedule the transmission service you need.
