Transmission Maintenance & Service in Hamilton, 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 Hamilton, 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.

EXCELLENT SERVICE & STAF!! I...
Don Gee
EXCELLENT SERVICE & STAF!! I am a retired auto and heavy truck technician and have no affiliation with this company. In Feb of 2017 the transmission on our 208 Ford Escape was not shifting properly. We took it to Mr. Transmission on Upper James St. in Hamilton and Chris took the vehicle for a road test. it was determined the band had broke and this was a common problem. Our Escape had less than 96,000 Km onit. In order to replace the band the transmission had to be removed and taken apart. I told Chris I would rather they rebuild our transmission, rather tan installing a rebuilt exchange unit. Chris aggreed and gave us a quate. A few days later Chris phoned to let us know our Escape was all ready. Chris arrived with our vehicle and picked us up. The bill was as quoted with a warranty of one year or 20,000 Km Almost a year later the transmission started slipping in reverse in the cold wather. I contacted Chris and made arrangements to leave the vehicle overnight so he could check it in the morning when it was cold. Unfortuneatly it worked okay for him. It did not mesbehave until January of 2019. I contacted Chris at Mr. T. and explained the progems with the transmission slipping in reverse was getting worse and sometimes it would slip in low. The vehicle had about 106,000 Km at this time. We made arrangements to leave the vehicle overnight and I typed out a detailed list of events and left it with him. The next day Chris phoned and said the transmission sliiped for him but he was not sure whcich cours of action he was going to take. Late in the day Chis phoned back and said they had done some test and if we did not need the vehicle for a couple of days he would remove the transmission and enspect it. We agreed. A couple of days later Chris phoned and said they had found a couple of things, mainly the torque converter and a worn bushing. Chris said we could pick up the Escape and try it for a week and let him know how it performed. This was in the first week of March 2019 and the weather had wormed up. The transmission has been working properly. When I asked Chris about the bill (I was expecting to pay for the removeal and replacement) Chris Said NO CHARGE!! FANTASTIC CUSTOMER SERVICE!! Along time ago I learned it is far better to approach a problem calm cool and collective rather than going into a place ranting and raving and shouting and cursing. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK CHRIS & STAFF!! DON G - APRIL 14, 2019 HAMILTON
