Transmission Maintenance & Service
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 multi-check inspection of your transmission’s performance and general operation. In some cases, additional diagnostic work (up to and including) removing, disassembling and inspecting the transmission will be required, which is over and above, our free multi check inspection. The centre manager will give you an estimate for any required work over and above the free 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.
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.
What’s Next After Your Free Road Test and Multi Check?
*Additional Charges may apply*
During the lift inspection our technician will check the following:
- Neutral Switch
- Engine RPM
- Throttle Linkage
- Transmission Mounts
- Fluid Retention
- Electronic Controls
This will determine if a minor adjustment will correct the problem of 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.
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. Some of these services will require additional charges, which we will request you authorization prior to the work being performed.
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.

What Customers Say About Mister Transmission
Knowledgeable and courteous service
The repair was priced fairly and the hop accommodated our special needs with our motorhome. Repair was done on time, however, a bolt was forgotten to be tightened and speedometer cable broke after 2km.
Very good, timely service.
My car runs very smoothly now.
I received a quick diagnosis after having my car towed to the repair shop. The technicians were conscientious about doing a good job and not rushing to get it done quickly. They also fixed another problem I was unaware. They were knowledgeable and explained things to me over the phone and in person when I picked up my car.
Kris Carlson was pleasant to talk to and explained the issue with my transmission well. He also proposed different scenarios; best and worst case. Timing of repair/overhaul was excellent which was done in only two and a half days. As the final repair cost was quite significant, Kris gave a discount which was very much appreciated. Kris also went over the terms of the warranty and offered further support (to come back) should any unexpected issues arise. I hope I don't have to come back but if I do, I know I will be taken care of. I highly recommend Mister Transmission in Calgary.
I had replace the shift solenoid module myself after receiving ODBII code, but shortly afterwards received P0876 & P0740 codes which indicated worst problems yet transmission was working fine. I took it to Mr.T. Kris took it for test run and found it working just beautifully but told me drive it and get it to go limp mode and come back. I did. Kris then found several codes recorded. We schedule repairs. Kris rebuilt transmission, more codes showed up , he fixed those with new valve body. I pick suv up and before I even got back home it was acting worst than when I brought it first in. So back to Mr.T on Monday where Kris spend several days swapping out components to find problem. It was the shift solenoid I put in; defective. Kris put new OEM in and problem solved. Kris only charge me for that shift module; only fair since I could return the other for refund. Kris said the 1% of his jobs cause him 99% of his problems....but changed his mind to say that this "One Job" caused him that. It's hard to second guess a new part, and I'm sure he lost money on this job, but he never change his demeanour during the whole time, and he was still happy I brought my work to him; and he was happy he solve my problem. If you want a review this is it; "Mister. Transmission is even willing to loose money if need-be to fix your transmission to their satisfaction". And for the customer, it's good to know that Mister. Transmission is not going to intentionally give you a low-ball estimate and try to milked you dry later with extras. Their estimate is based on their road test and experience and any other agreements you make with them and they're willing to work with that. Dean Moss, Calgary
Kris at the Calgary branch was extremely friendly and treated us not as dummies as I found with other auto centres. He took the time to explain to us what they had done at mister transmission to the car. Hopefully now it will keep us on the road for a long time.
