6 Of The Most Common Transmission Services

Learn about six of the more common transmission services offered by Mister Transmission and which transmission problems they can fix or prevent.

1. A Transmission Fluid Check Is The Most Frequently Performed Transmission Service.

Unlike other services on this list, you can perform a transmission fluid check on your own. Depending on the model of transmission your vehicle is, checking your fluid usually consists of popping your hood, opening the appropriate cap, and inserting a dipstick. If your fluid levels are below the recommended line on the dipstick, you should top it up. While you’re at it, check the fluid itself.

Good quality automatic transmission fluid should be largely odourless and mostly translucent with a slight reddish or greenish hue. If it’s opaque or smells bad, there might be something wrong with your transmission. Transmission fluid is absolutely vital to automatic transmissions (as similar fluids are to manual transmissions). Transmission fluid cools and lubricates your transmission, and without the right amount and right quality of transmission fluid, bad things will happen. We recommend checking your fluid monthly.

2. Transmission Fluid Flushes Are Occasionally Necessary.

If your transmission fluid is degraded, it needs to be flushed out. Damaged fluid can damage your transmission, so you don’t want to leave it in there. At Mister Transmission, we offer transmission fluid flushes where we can evacuate the old fluid and replace it with new, clean fluid.

3. Reseals Are Another Fluid-Related Transmission Service.

One reason your fluid or oil levels might be low is that you have a leak. If you’ve noticed patches of transmission fluid or oil underneath your vehicle, you have a leak. Reseal jobs can be quick and easy or more involved, depending on the size of the leak.

4. Computer Scans Are A Modern Transmission Service.

Modern vehicles have on-board computers that can regulate the functions of the transmission. This increases efficiency. However, increased computerization also means more things that can go wrong. At Mister Transmission we offer on-board diagnostics (OBD) computer scans. Our transmission techs can interface with your vehicle’s on-board computer to pinpoint problems.

5. Road Tests Replicate Real-World Conditions.

Road tests are a critical part of transmission service. We offer both a stationary test and a driving test. We will thoroughly test every position of your transmission for slipping, noises, erratic shifting, and early shift patterns.

6. Lift Inspections And Pan Examinations Are Key Diagnostic Transmission Services.

To understand complex issues, we may recommend a lift inspection. This enables us to check a variety of different components. A pan examination can determine the extent of any damage.

Charlene Butler
Aki and his staff worked very hard to find the source of my troubles and to find parts to repair, rather than change the transmission. They saved me a lot of money. Such courtesy, respect and honesty are hard to find. I will be confident in recommending this shop to all my friends and family.

This place, the owner, the everyone.. All of them absolutely amazing! From the free diagnostic to the surprisingly painless cost of fixing my car.. They are a wonderful, incredibly skilled, and most of all a caring crew. Go there for sure to get anything done for your car. I can't say enough nice things about them. They're so good that I am switching from my mechanic of more than five years and taking my car here for all of its service from now on. When you go here too, you sure as heck won't be let down or disappointed.
