5 Ways Transmission Service Can Help

Regular service is crucial for the long-term health of your vehicle’s transmission. But just what does a transmission service consist of and how does it help? Here are five ways transmission service can help.

1. Regular Transmission Service Ensures Your Transmission Has What It Needs To Keep Operating Efficiently.

Much of transmission service cannot be done just by the vehicle’s owner. A lot of transmission service requires skills, knowledge, tools, and technology that only professionals have. However, one thing you can do on your own is check the fluid levels in your transmission. Automatic transmissions use automatic transmission fluid, while manual transmissions usually use something called transmission oil. Once a month you should check your fluid levels. If you your fluid level is below the desired line on your dipstick, top it up. The right level of fluid is key to the health of a transmission.

2. Regular Transmission Service Identifies Problems Before They Get Worse.

During your monthly transmission fluid check, give the fluid a whiff. Does it smell foul? Is it opaque rather than a largely translucent reddish colour? If so, then something is wrong with your transmission. Furthermore, if you are having to top up your transmission every month, something bad is going on. It is better to discover problems during regular transmission service than a few months down the line when catastrophe strikes.

3. Regular Transmission Service Can Find Problems You Cannot.

Even the most knowledgeable car enthusiasts are limited in how much transmission service they can do on their own. That is why regular visits to a transmission shop are valuable. Even if you can get under your car, there is only so much you can see. A transmission shop that provides lift inspections can get a clear view and look for leaks or other problems.

4. Regular Transmission Service Has Gone Digital.

Most modern vehicles are computerized now. It is not enough to be a mechanic, transmission techs must be computer literate now, too. With special programs that can interface with a vehicle’s onboard computer, transmission techs can retrieve any stored problem codes that could be hampering your transmission’s performance.

5. Regular Transmission Service Gives You A Second Opinion.

A lot of people own vehicles which only they drive. If you are the only person who drives your vehicle, you might get used to its idiosyncrasies. The problem is drivers get so used to their vehicles that they might brush off minor transmission problems as normal behaviour. Transmission service that includes a road test will get an expert second opinion.

Brought my truck to this location after discussing the symptoms of my faulty clutch.Dealt with two other garages previously who attempted to overcharge for work not needed.The manager here fixed the problem at a fraction that the other garages quoted me for.Truck drives perfect and he even threw in a free transmission oil change for some unforeseen delay.Honest and competitive. Thanks Mr Transmission.

Samantha Prowse
Always above and beyond!Mostly my car has gone in for basic maintenance, but recently I had a hitch installed on my car. In the process of having this done it was noticed I had a sensor malfunctioning. NO PRESSURE what so ever to have this fixed at the same time. I was told the risks and given a choice. I chose to fix it as my car was in anyway, but I loved having the choice with no judgement or pressure. Pricing was fair, and definitely less than I was expecting. I didn't feel my lack of car knowledge as a female was an issue here at all. I was made to feel informed and involved. I recommend this shop to all of my friends ☺️
