Manual Transmission Service & Repair Kitchener, 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

– Grinding Noises

Mauricio Vargas
I was very happy with the level of attention provided to my issues. The gentleman here were very accommodating with my schedule. I was also explained thoroughly what to expect before diagnostics and during each step. They were also very in-depth about what was broken and why, even to take the time and show the parts that were replaced and how they were damaged. The price was fair and they even looked after me when other components failed that were not part of the original problem. I plan to return for more repairs for as long as I owned a vehicle outside warranty.
