A good transmission shop offers a variety of services for a variety of reasons. Here are six reasons to visit a transmission shop.
What do you first think of when you think of a transmission shop? Probably transmission repair, right? A good transmission shop can repair any issue you have, from a computer signal problem to a complete transmission overhaul.
It’s actually comparatively rare that drivers come into a transmission shop knowing that they need a repair and, rarer still, knowing exactly what that repair is. It’s more common for people to come in thinking something might be wrong. With the Mister Transmission Multi-Check Inspection, we thoroughly check every part of your transmission to diagnose any problem there might be.
Sometimes, there’s not a problem. Many times drivers come in thinking there might a problem and transmission technicians check and, ultimately, let them know they have nothing to worry about. This happens frequently when drivers have new vehicles with new transmissions, especially if they’re driving a continuously variable transmission (CVT) for the first time.
Even when you don’t suspect that anything is wrong with your transmission, routine checks and maintenance are still highly advisable. Your vehicle manufacturer’s manual should indicate how often your transmission needs routine maintenance. The recommended interval usually falls between 100 000 km and 160 000 km.
Sometimes transmission repair can be uncertain and sometimes expensive. You might want a second option to follow what a different transmission shop has told you. For example, your current transmission might be substantially damaged and you’ve been advised to replace it with a different transmission. At Mister Transmission, we would probably advise you to opt for a transmission overhaul instead, in which each individual part is examined, cleaned, and replaced if necessary. This way you won’t have to worry about the provenance of a “new” transmission.
At Mister Transmission we can show you how to check your transmission fluid and give you advice on how to drive in such a way to put the least amount of strain possible on your transmission.
