4 Things Transmission Repair Shops Can Do

The main job of a transmission repair shop is to repair transmissions. It’s in the name: transmission repair shop. But transmission repair shops also help with transmission maintenance and can give tips on how to prolong the life of your transmission and to get the most out of it. Transmission repair shops can fix known problems and can inspect and look for suspected problems. There’s nothing regarding transmissions that a good transmission repair shop can’t do. Here are four of the major things that transmission repair shops can do.

1. Repair transmissions

We’ll start with the obvious. When you need your transmission repaired, you should take it to a transmission repair shop. Auto body shops are great at repairing and replacing multiple parts of your vehicle. But the transmission is special. It’s highly complex and very important. In fact, the transmission is a series of components working together to form one greater collective piece. You want a transmission expert repairing your transmission.

Some transmission repairs are quite simple. Sometimes the technician can figure out what the problematic part is right away. Some parts of the transmission are accessible while the transmission is still within the body of the vehicle. To replace such a part is relatively easy. However, some parts of the transmission are only accessible once the transmission is removed from the chassis. To replace any of these parts requires a more involved transmission repair.

2. Rebuild transmissions

But even removing the transmission from the chassis to replace one part is an easy job compared to a transmission rebuild. Sometimes, the problematic part of a transmission cannot be pinpointed. Sometimes, a transmission has become so damaged and so worn out that many of its components need to be replaced. A transmission rebuild is necessary in such cases.

Also known as a transmission overhaul, rebuilding a transmission requires the disassembly of the transmission piece by piece. Every piece is inspected and, depending upon its condition, it should be replaced or cleaned in a special solution. Transmission repair shops can also replace a transmission. However, we at Mister Transmission often caution our customers against this as replacement transmissions often have questionable histories.

3. Transmission fluid change service

Sometimes transmission fluid needs to be flushed out. If a transmission has suffered internal damage, this can damage the transmission fluid, which can in turn further damage the transmission. It’s a vicious cycle and simply adding more fluid won’t help. A transmission repair shop can flush out the damaged fluid and replace it with new fluid.

4. Transmission inspection

Transmission repair shops often inspect transmissions before they repair them. Technicians at the repair shop need to know just what and where the problem is before they can repair it. Many drivers come to a transmission repair shop with a suspicion that something might be wrong, but nothing more. In such cases, an inspection is definitely called for. Every transmission repair shop does their inspections differently. But at Mister Transmission, we contend that our Multi-Check Inspection is the best inspection that any transmission repair shop can provide.
