Transmission Maintenance & Service in Coquitlam, British Columbia

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 Coquitlam, British Columbia

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.

Michael Griffioen
I took my 2008 Chevy Equinox to several different places to get a free estimate on the cost involved to fix my leaking transmission fluid. Frank and his team of mechanics were very friendly, informative and honest with their assessment of my vehicle’s problem and $$$ it would take to repair my situation. Frank’s estimate for the repair costs were accurate and more importantly…the least expensive of all the places I visited. I recommend Mr.Transmission in Coquitlam on Barnet Hwy. if you have any mechanical issues. Thanks again Frank for your expertise and friendly service.

Never a good thing when...
Attila Szamoskozi
Never a good thing when you find out that your automatic transmission needs to get rebuilt and it's always an expensive proposition. However, after doing some price comparisons and reading Google reviews I ended up choosing this location to do the work on my 2005 Honda Accord V6. Really glad I did. The work was actually completed early and was the final price that I was quoted once they actually had a look at the car. A fair price and a bit lower than the other quotes that I got by some other automotive shops.Frank was a pleasure to deal with and I really appreciate that he took the time to explain the work that was being done in detail when I asked him to give me the full explanation. The 3 year warranty was also a big plus as every other place I spoke to was only offering a 1 year warranty on the work performed.The car now shifts like it was new and to be honest I had forgotten over the years how smoothly it shifted when it was brand new. I have now been reminded what that was like. :) I would definitely not hesitate to recommend this location for transmission work but as I understand it, they do all other repairs on cars as well. I guess I'll be seeing more of you Frank!

Lucy Tran
My car recently started making a new noise and I could smell burning from the engine. I brought it in to Mr transmission the next day and had to rush to work. Within a short period of time the manager Frank called me to let me know that my alternator had failed. He was able to order me the new part and installed. The pricing was fair and my car was done before I finished work. Great service and communication.

I had a rear differential installed at the Mister Transmission in Coquitlam (Barnet Hwy). The service was excellent. Frank provided a thorough inspection of the vehicle. He offered an honest assessment, explained our options plainly, and provided daily updates during the repair process. I would highly recommend this shop to anyone. Thanks, Frank!
