Manual Transmission Service & Repair Kingston, Ontario

A manual transmission has a clutch, which is responsible for transferring power from the engine to the transmission, allowing the driver to switch gears and control your driving experience. Compared to an automatic transmission, the manual transmission is mostly made up of mechanical gears that rely on the drive to shift.

Manual transmission service is essential for keeping your manual transmission in optimal condition. Transmission fluid naturally degrades over time, which is why replacing your transmission fluid is important to keep your gears shifting smoothly. How often you need to change your transmission fluid depends on the year, make and model of your vehicle, give your local Mister Transmission a call to find out when you

Common Problems for Manual Transmission

If you are experiencing any of the following problems, you should get your transmission checked as soon as possible. Recognizing these warning signs early is key to minimizing the cost of your repair as it may only require a minor repair or service

– Check engine light is on
– Clutch is slipping – when the clutch slips, the engine will rev but the car doesn’t move as it should, or sometime not at all. This could indicate a worn clutch or clutch pedal that may require a simple adjustment, rebuild or a new clutch.
– Grinding Noises
– Noisy in Neutral – If you feel your car ‘bumping’ or ‘clanging’, this could indicate your transmission fluid needs to be topped up
– Lack of Responsiveness or delays in movement

I can’t begin to say how wonderful the guys at Mister Transmission are. Got told by a dealership we needed a new clutch and slave cylinder. The car felt totally fine so went to the guys at Mister Transmission for a second opinion and they confirmed the car was totally fine. Instructed us on things to look for then they didn’t even want to bill us for all this. I made sure to leave a tip for them to get coffee because they saved me $2000 or more. I would send everyone I know with transmission issues here to get straightened out. You can’t beat a dedicated transmission specialist.

Best garage in Kingston! I went to James Braden Ford to get my car fixed. After waiting for 3 weeks, to get someone to look at it, they announced me that it would take 10 000$ to fix my car (to replace the transmission and the clutch). Of course, the cost was so high that I was considering scraping my car. But I could not really believe that my 110 000km car had to be scrapped. I’ve had quite a few cars in my life and I never had to scrap a car with a low mileage like this one. So I decided to get a second opinion. I stopped by Mister Transmission. Matt was really helpful to answer my questions and we agreed to get the car towed from James Braden Ford. He was able to look at the transmission within a day and quickly came up with a much better and affordable assessment of the situation. The clutch had broken down, creating 2 holes inside the bell housing of the transmission. The clutch was damaged beyond repair and had to be replaced. But the 2 holes within the bell housing could be patched and the transmission didn’t have to be replaced. They also noticed that the right front axle had to be replaced. In the end, it costed me 3500$ before tax to replace the clutch, the right front axle and patch the transmission holes. So MUCH BETTER than 10 000$ with James Braden Ford. Thank you very much to Matt and all the team of Mister Transmission to get my car running again.
