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
Frank was very helpfull and thorough.
Frank at Mister Transmission Coquitlam is great to deal with. He responded with a timely reply to an email request for a quote. At the shop he was clear about the work and provided detailed explanations afterwards. Getting a loaner while my car was in the garage is a bonus that the dealer I normally use just doesn't offer. Plus I saved hundreds of dollars over what a dealer was going to charge. The car is running better than it has. I'm very satisfied and will be back for other occasional work and maintenance.
Frank and his team at the Coquitlam location are some of the most knowledgeable and friendly individuals that I've worked with. They were able to take me in the day I called, diagnose and begin working on the issue that day. Excellent customer service by keeping me up to date with the repair, giving me an accurate quote and answering all my questions throughout all phases of the fix. Thanks again!
Repair seems fine. I was surprised they didn't tell me in advance it would be a 4 day repair.
Excellent customer service
had a broken transmission, Frank looked after my car and provided me with a car until mine was fixed. Service was professional, friendly and honest! highly recommended!!!!
Other than the high price point (which i understand is industry standard so not specific to this shop) the service was great and helpful.
Excellent service !!
Properly done, will be coming back for all my vehicle issues.
