Transmission Repair & Service Belleville, Ontario

Pinpointing the exact cause of any transmission problem takes skill, knowledge, and investigation

The evolution of transmissions has made these machines and systems increasingly complex. When transmission repairs are required, determining the cause and cure for what ails can be tricky. Why? Because transmissions have become remarkably complex and computerized and that presents both advantages and disadvantages. On one hand, transmission performance has become noticeably better in all vehicle makes and models. On the other, the increased complexity and digitization of transmission systems has made repair work a highly technical and complicated affair.


As you can imagine, there are different types of transmission repair jobs and options you can choose from depending on the nature of your vehicle’s breakdown. Understanding what those options are can help you make informed decisions when faced with a choice of transmission repairs to weigh.

A Repair for Every Type of Transmission Malfunction

Some transmission repair work is straightforward and mechanical in nature. Other times, it’s a combination of mechanical and electronic engineering that’s required to get your car back on the road. The most common types of repair work include:

  • Adjustments and in-car repairs. Most minor repairs are simple matters that are done without removing the transmission from the vehicle. If yours is a computer-controlled transmission that is not shifting properly, it is often the result of a computer sending incorrect signals due to a faulty sensor, or the transmission is not reacting to the command because of a bad connection or defective solenoid pack. If a non-computer controlled transmission is shifting too early or too late, it may require an adjustment to the throttle cable. If the vehicle has a vacuum modulator instead of a throttle cable, there is an adjustment that can be made using an adjustment screw in some designs. In vehicles with modulators, however, it is important to ensure there are no vacuum leaks and that the engine is running at peak efficiency.
  • Reseal jobs. A transmission is re-sealed to repair external transmission fluid leaks. If you see spots of red oil on the ground under the car, your transmission may need a re-seal job. To check a transmission for leaks, a technician will put the vehicle on a lift and examine the unit for signs of oil leaks. If a leak is spotted at any of the external seals or gaskets and the transmission otherwise performs well, the technician will most likely recommend that the transmission be re-sealed. Most of the external seals can be replaced while the transmission is still in the car but, if the front seal must be replaced, the transmission must first be removed from the vehicle to gain access to it.
  • Replacing accessible parts. There are a number of parts that are accessible without requiring the removal of the complete transmission. The parts that are accessible, however, vary from transmission to transmission and most transmission repair facilities would hesitate to provide meaningful warranties on external repairs for the simple reason that they cannot see if there are any additional internal problems in the components that are only accessible by transmission removal.
  • Complete overhauls. Also known as “rebuilding a transmission”, a complete overhaul involves the removal and disassembly of the transmission in its entirety. Every part is inspected for wear and damage, then cleaned in a special cleaning solution, or replaced with another part depending on its condition. Parts that have friction surfaces, such as bands and clutches are replaced as are all seals and gaskets. The torque converter is also replaced, usually with a remanufactured one. Technical service bulletins are checked to see if the auto manufacturer recommends any modifications to correct design defects that were discovered after the transmission was built. Automobile manufacturers often make upgrade kits available to transmission shops to resolve these design defects.

Replacing or Overhauling a Transmission

When a transmission requires an overhaul, there are two options that you may have. The first is to remove your existing transmission and overhaul it, then put the rebuilt unit back in your car. The second option is to replace your existing unit with another unit that has already been rebuilt or remanufactured.

A word to the wise: replacing your transmission with a used one may not be your best option. Used transmissions often have questionable histories that could create a whole new set of challenges. New transmissions, meanwhile, are mostly aftermarket transmissions billed as new but are in fact rebuilt transmissions with new parts.

The cost of the repair is always top-of-mind and understandably so. Transmission repairs are usually unexpected (and unwelcome). The cost varies depending on the outcome of our diagnostic testing, and we will help you to understand the various factors that come into play. We also offer our customers flexible payment options.

Whichever route you choose, you can trust our transmission experts to get you and your car back on the road.

If I could give more...
Cate Sutherland
If I could give more than 5 stars, I definitely would! My whole experience with Mr. Transmission was great. I was having a problem with the shifter dial or sensor in my Dodge Ram not always recognizing when the truck was in park. I went to the Dodge dealership first and they said that they'd probably couldn't diagnose it without ripping my transmission apart. Well, that wasn't happening. lol I called Mr. Transmission and Cory was very reassuring. When I got there, I called Barry over to the truck, he gave the truck a little nudge and now the indicator was registering that the truck was in park and I could get the key out! Barry was pretty sure it was a minor problem. I brought the truck back when they had a hoist available. Turns out there was rust around a cable and lever. Barry cleaned the rust off, truck works great and there was no charge! I highly recommend the Belleville Mr. Transmission. The services are provided with integrity by professional, knowledgeable and friendly people.

My husband took our Mercedes B200 to Mr. Transmission to be diagnosed after a Mercedes dealership diagnosed ($400. diagnostic fee) a $3,000. transmission fix. Barry and his team went above and beyond to diagnose and fix the actual problem (which was faulty front bearings) and saved us, in total $2700. We can't say enough good things about this local business. It's rare that you'll ever find an auto repair shop that's so honest, friendly, informative and willing to go the extra mile for it's customers. Thanks for a fantastic experience!

I have dealt with Barry and the mr transmission team a handful of times now. Domestic and imported (German) and has always been an easy going experience which keeps me coming back. They always do their best to research for the best price and reliability when ordering parts. They aren’t happy until your happy! I will give the business whenever possible.
