How Important is Transmission Service and Maintenance

We know how life can be. We all have so many obligations and plans and goals that it can be hard to keep track of everything. When you’re swamped with work, have a family reunion coming up, and a friend’s wedding on the weekend, the last thing you’re thinking about is, “I wonder if my car is running efficiently?”. But it’s important to find the time to ensure that your vehicle is performing as it should be. And this is especially true of your transmission.

Transmission Service

Transmission service is very important. With an under performing or malfunctioning transmission, your vehicle’s performance is compromised and can even be dangerous. You need to ensure that your transmission is running smoothly and properly. And the best way to do that is to entrust your transmission to those who know transmissions best: Mister Transmission.

Transmission Maintenance

As part of our transmission service and maintenance, we offer a variety of procedures and  assessments. Chief among them is our multi-check inspection. As part of our multi-check inspection, we will perform the following tasks: fluid check, a road test, a lift inspection/diagnostic, and a pan examination. But that’s not all that our transmission service consists of.

We also offer inspection services. This is when a transmission presents a problem that does not appear to have an easy fix. As part of our inspection service, we may have to remove the transmission from the body of the vehicle to examine it more closely, get a better look at how things are working (or are not working) and replace any parts that may need it. We also offer a transmission fluid change service to help ensure your transmission continues to operate at its best for years to come.

Maintenance Tips

The transmission is one of the most important parts of your vehicle’s engine, so you really want to ensure that your transmission is performing at its optimum ability. Transmissions have a plethora of moving parts that require maintenance to remain in good working order. However, it can be difficult to perform proper maintenance on many of today’s modern transmissions, so transmission service calls for the equipment and experience of a certified technician.

But there are definitely things to keep in mind. First, get your vehicle’s cooling system serviced. Transmission failure often happens because the transmission overheats. One of the ways you can prevent this from happening is to get your vehicle’s radiator and cooling systems inspected. Also, you should replace your transmission filter. If applicable to your vehicle’s transmission, and according to your auto manufacturer’s recommendations, it’s worthwhile to have the transmission filter replaced by a professional technician periodically.

You need to check the levels and quality of your transmission fluid, as well. Dirty, old transmission fluid, or too little or too much fluid, can wreak havoc on your transmission. Some vehicle manufacturers have replaced the transmission dipstick with sealed units, making it impossible for the average driver to check the level and quality of the transmission fluid with ease. Regardless, many transmission problems typically stem from problems related to the transmission fluid quality and level. But the most important tip is to get your transmission periodically serviced and inspected by a professional.

Christy McMurray
Thank you, Mister Transmission! After taking my vehicle to the dealership where I bought it, and paying $150 for them to tell me what I already told them was wrong, the Dealer gave me a quote of $6,500 to replace my 9 year old transmission with a factory rebuilt one, because it couldn't be fixed or rebuilt by them. Thankfully I called Mister Transmission and Chris knew exactly what the issue was, how to fix it, and it only cost me $385 for everything and it was fixed in a day. I am so grateful that Chris and Dawn run an honest operation and provide genuinely great service. Thanks again!

Cambridge Mister Transmission was awesome. We ended up having a small issue but they still took the time to show me where on my vehicle the problems were and fully explain the possible issues. They were prompt in getting back to me the following day and I had my vehicle back in no time. Chris and Nick were amazing and the office is so clean and pleasant. Great customer service!

Chris Elmquist
Mazda 3 AT light came on one with some bad noises and clunking. Dealer said need a new transmission for only $4400. Took it to this and a quick check they determined it needed new TCM which is very common on the mazdas. They took care of it and even did a bunch of extra work fixing a wiring harness all for the cost of the TCM . cannot say enough about how we were treated by Chris and Dawn. Would recommend them. FIRST CLASS!!!!!

Kieran Massicotte
I took my differentials down to get rebuilt and Steve was very professional and the total was 200 bucks cheaper than the quoted price and there was a few things during the whole process that didn’t go as planned as I had brought all the bearings parts and some bearings were the wrong ones and I had brought 4.88s to put in end they would not work and before continuing with anything Steve would call and double check to let you know what needs to be done and get the ok from me first before they would continue overall amazing place Steve and the guys were awesome and the work was done perfect and the diffs have never been more smooth highly recommend.
