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.

LISA WAPPLE
I was referred to Mr Transmission (on 1A St SE Calgary) from my tire shop; Mr Transmission was able to get to me very promptly. My truck is only 5 years old, it was very stressful and frustrating. Mr Transmission also gave me a very kind discount. The staff was phenomenal and I was treated like family you love. I will definitely be referring anyone I know that has transmission needs to go there.🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
