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.

This place is the best for transmission issues, I had a major problem on my Grand Caravan and Mike Arbueau helped me a lot. They did rebuild my transmission and I was very satisfied. I also changed the transmission oil for my second car. I really liked their honesty and transparency when serving people. Thanks Hashem

Dave
My transmission was acting up on my older Chev duramax/ Allison transmission. Luckily I was recommended to Mister transmission. Kris explained how the transmission works and why it could be happening. But would need diagnosis. Being a DIY person I appreciated the lesson in the complexity of the transmission but knew it was beyond my scope. He had me back on the road with minimum damage to my wallet. Was the best experience I have ever had at any mechanics. Will be recommending him to all my friends. Thanks again to the whole team at Mister Transmission.

Kevin Andrew
Thanks Daryl and gang!! I wish the world was full of shops like this but it’s not and that is what makes them special. I chatted with them on the phone about a part I needed for my Subaru . They quoted me for the part and service. We made an appointment for the service as I had to drive from Whistler. The appointment was kept, the service was completed exactly as they quoted and the price for parts was exactly as quoted . Thanks again Mr Transmission , you made my life easier, this is what great service feels like.
