4 Things a Transmission Shop Can Do for You

Transmission shops look after your transmission to ensure it runs as efficiently and for as long as possible. But why do you need a whole shop dedicated to the transmission? What are some things a transmission shop can do for you?

1. Transmission Shops Provide Routine Transmission Maintenance And Service.

Transmissions, like other parts of your vehicle, require regular checkups and maintenance to ensure they are running properly. Unfortunately, there’s not much you yourself can do in this respect apart from routinely checking your transmission fluid levels with your dipstick. Transmissions are really complicated and there’s just too much to know for the average person to be expected to conduct their own transmission maintenance. Not to mention, only a fraction of the transmission’s parts are accessible while the transmission is still in the vehicle.

2. Transmission Shops Conduct Transmission Repairs When Necessary.

When something is wrong with your transmission, you need to repair it. Pretty straightforward, but the repairs themselves rarely are. Do you know how to flush out and replace your transmission fluid? Do you know how to replace a defective solenoid pack? Do you know how to remove your transmission from the chassis of your vehicle and inspect it for damaged parts?

Probably not, and why should you? It’s not your job to know. You have your own job that you know all about and your own duties and obligations. And the last thing you need in your busy life is a transmission problem. So bring your transmission into a transmission shop for a speedy and effective repair so you can get back to your life.

3. Transmission Shops Have Diagnostic Equipment To Discover And Pinpoint Transmission Problems.

How can transmission shops tell if you need a transmission repair? Some problems are obvious, but many aren’t. Diagnosis often requires specialized equipment. For example, most transmissions are built these days to work with the vehicle’s on-board computer. Transmission shops have special devices and software they use to interface with the on-board computer to diagnose problems. There are also more classic procedures, such as a road test. Both of these can be part of Mister Transmission’s comprehensive Multi Check Inspection that is guaranteed to discover any transmission problems.

4. Some Specialized Vehicles Have Specialized Transmissions. Transmission Shops Can Service These Transmissions, Too.

Automobiles such as muscle cars, race vehicles, and custom hot rods often have customized transmissions that require custom parts. The experts at transmission shops can figure out which part works best for your high-performance transmission and can get it for you.

Pahi Pat
I was heading from Toronto to Windsor and I was stuck on the highway because my transmission oilstarted to heat up. No one was able to help me out but the people at Mister Transmission were more than happy to take me right away. They were extremely humble, polite and welcoming. They put my car on the lift and showed me the issue. They explained the issues and the cause for it, along with possible solutions. The problems were fixed really quick and got me on the road. I am extremely grateful for what they did for me.

Marc T11
I was recommended by my usual mechanic to go to this location for an issue with my transfer case. I was not disappointed!! My vehicle would not move and was stuck with the transfer case in neutral. After getting my vehicle towed in; the mechanics diagnosed and repaired my vehicle before I got home! They found a clip had broken and replaced it. Not only did they fix it quickly, there was no bill. They did the work for free. No diagnostic, no shop labour, no parts fee. Just honest and good willed mechanic work! I cant thank them enough! They have made me a customer for life if I should have transmission trouble again in the future!

Steve Pearce
My VW Golf transmission was slipping, after going to 6 different mechanics and transmission places i ended up talking to Steve, He said to bring the car in the next morning. I was there on time and Steve had a hoist empty for my appointment. They put the car on the hoist and topped up the transmission fluid. They didn't try to sell me anything or tell me there were other things wrong with the transmission. I will not hesitate to take my car there if i have a future problem with it.

Cameron Anderson
The staff were friendly and knowledgeable, and now my transmission is running better than it did before it started slipping. I was provided a courtesy car while mine was out of commission, and that meant I didn’t miss any work shifts. The warranty provided also helps give me a piece of mind that they stand behind their work.
