Transmission Maintenance & Service in Barrie, Ontario

Keep your car on the road with preventative transmission maintenance

Just as you have other parts of your car serviced, your transmission needs maintenance to ensure a long life and avoid transmission problems. Our transmission service consists of a complete diagnosis of your transmission’s performance and general operation. Several of these procedures will be performed twice; once by the centre manager, and then again by a technician. This method allows double checking of your transmission’s key systems, while providing you with added assurance.

Multi-Check Inspection in Barrie, Ontario

The Mister Transmission Multi-Check Inspection includes:

  • Fluid Check
  • Road Test
  • Lift Inspection/Diagnosis
  • Pan Examination

 

Learn more about the Multi-Check Inspection:

Transmission Fluid Check

The fluid check indicates the first sign of possible wear and damage. A transmission in good condition will have a clear red fluid. If your fluid is discoloured or has unpleasant odour, this may be an indication of internal wear and damage which is occurring as you drive your vehicle. An unpleasant odour and discoloration, in combination with other symptoms, may require an internal inspection of your transmission.

Road Test

The road test consists of two segments: a stationary test and driving test, which together comprise the most detailed portion of the Multi-Check. Every position of your transmission will be thoroughly tested for slipping, noises, harsh, soft or erratic shifting, as well as late or early shift patterns.

Lift Inspection

During the lift inspection/diagnosis our technician will check the following:

  • Neutral Switch
  • Engine RPM
  • Throttle Linkage
  • Modulators
  • Transmission Mounts
  • U-Joints
  • Fluid Retention
  • Electronic Controls

This will determine if a minor adjustment will correct the problem of your transmission.

Pan Examination

The pan examination is the most important part of the Mister Transmission Multi-Check. It provides the centre manager, technician, and yourself with a partial look inside your transmission.

In all pans, there are some metal particles and friction material present. However, an excessive amount indicates internal wear and damage. If that is the case, and it is determined that a minor adjustment will not correct the problem, we will recommend Mister Transmission’s inspection service. This service will determine exactly what is wrong inside your transmission.

 

What’s Next After Your Multi-Check Inspection?

Inspection Service

Your transmission is one of the most complex systems in your vehicle, with hundreds of precision parts operating together. Determining the problem and providing a price sometimes requires removing and even dismantling your transmission. Not only will we be able to determine the problem, we’ll also be able to determine the cause to prevent any future problems.

Transmission Fluid Change Service

We also offer a transmission fluid change service to help ensure your transmission continues to operate at its best for years to come.

Marcel Heaton
I needed my 1974 MGB clutch repaired. Mr Transmission did a great job and in a timely manner. I thought the price was a bit high but they were the only local company that would work on my car. The staff were knowledgeable and friendly. I would recommend them to my friends and family.

Hats off to Mister Transmission....
Aiden Langford
Hats off to Mister Transmission. Please go here for transmission work or any vehicle service! My 2010 Mazda 3 transmission started slipping at 170K and wouldn't reverse. The team at Mister Transmission were extremely professional and I can't thank Al enough for his kindness and coherent way of explaining what needed to be fixed and why. He made it easy to understand exactly what was wrong with the trans and the logistics behind the repairs. Most shops I've been to for any work on my vehicle have fed me jargon I couldn't follow and I was never entirely sure if they were just trying to get more money from me. Mister Transmission did not do that and my transmission shifts beautifully again (just like new). Once again, THANK YOU! I am beyond satisfied with their work. Don't hesitate to visit them or give them a call.

Tim Samuels
Just Had my 2015 Toyota Camry XLE 2.5 transmission rebuilt at the Barrie ,Essa Road location.The manager Al was amazing from the time I walked in there feeling hopeless after Jackson s Toyota advised me I would need a new ($8000 ) or used ($4000) transmission as their only suggestion.( paid $153 for that diagnostic). This Camry has just 180,300 km and the Torque Converter was failing ( shudder during gear changes) .Apparently a known issue in the States and I was really hoping Toyota would cover but alas they did not.Al took care of me ( free diagnostic) and even arranged a rental for me at an amazing price ( Bristol) .Thank you Al and your team for a job well done . The car feels great again .You did a great job at a great price and with a personal touch .I highly recommend Al and team to handle any issue you have with your transmission. It s a costly repair no matter what ,because it s a big job and specialized skills needed ,but going to the right people makes it easier and less stressfulFive Stars all the way Thanks again Al

I can not say enough...
Ryan French
I can not say enough good things about the outstanding service and level of trust I have in these guys I took my car in for a new transmission and I received friendly service after the repairs I was shown my old transmission and they explain what went wrong and how the fixed it which was awesome. About a week later I had an issue with my starter I dropped it off expecting to pay $600 they called me letting me know it was an easy fix for them snd not to worry about it which was a life saver. From that point on I’ve used them and trusted their opinions these guys are the best you will not regret giving them your business and like me you will continue to use them I guarantee it

Amazing service! Very friendly, and stayed in contact with me every step of the way. Couldn't beat the pricing and timing was second to none. Al and his staff are fantastic people. I would recommend Mr. Transmission on Essa Rd to anybody. In fact I already sent my boyfriend there and he is just as impressed with their service, professionalism, pricing and timing. Very happy I chose to go here!!
