At Mister Transmission, we have state of the art diagnostic technology to determine exactly what is going on with your vehicle, and the most cost-effective solution to repair it.
Automatic Transmission Common Problems
The most common cause of failure in an automatic transmission is a malfunctioning torque converter, which can cause shifting problems in automatic transmissions. The torque converter in an automatic transmission serves the same purpose as the clutch in a manual transmission. It is the part of your car that controls how much fluid is passed on to the automatic transmission and allows your engine to continue running while at a complete stop.
There are many warning signs that could indication you have a problem with your transmission, including:
- Transmission slipping, grinding or jumping during acceleration when the car is shifting gears
- Low fluid level or leaks
- Burning smell
- Grinding or buzzing noises
- Check Engine Light On
My vehicle is showing at least one of these signs, what should I do?

The key to minimizing repair costs is to get them checked as soon as you notice them, and you most likely only need a minor repair or service.
What Customers Say About Mister Transmission
Exceptional customer service. Timely repair and was kept advised during the process. Shuttle service was an added bonus. Round highly recommend.
honest and great service
A little expensive for work that took only 30 mins. Service was efficient and friendly..
Peter was friendly and accommodating. Pleasure doing business with him.
The transmission was repaired and the vehicle went from un-driveable to great condition in three days. The technicians were great at explaining the likely issue and gave me a price range for repair, and allowed me to take my time to make a decision before taking the transmission apart. Unfortunately, the repair quote after removing the transmission came in $200 above the high end of the quote. However, they were able to bring the price back down to shooting distance of the quoted value which I appreciated. The service was expensive due to its nature, but I am satisfied with the repair, warranty and service.
My car had been leaking transmission fluid for about a month and I kept topping it off until my transmission started slipping and I was getting nervous to drive it. I drove into the Dundas location in London without an appointment, and Peter got my car in right away to look at it. He gave me a quote, which I was happy with and had his fellow mechanic start working on my car right away. I was out of his shop 2 hours later with my problem fixed. Tremendous customer service, and also educated me on how transmissions work. I was very happy with the prompt and friendly service that Peter and his team provided me. I will definately be back if I require more service, and would 100% recommend anyone to visit Peter and his team at this location.
Price wasn't the most important consideration for me. because my car is nine years old and very well-maintained, and I want to keep it for as long as I can. The description of the transmission problem that I was given via cellphone while I was at work, was amazingly detailed - far beyond my own understanding of engine mechanics, However, I've always believed that whenever you listen to someone talk about something they really care about, the description turns into a kind of poetry.. I knew from the explanation of the problem that my car would be in really good hands. The other much-appreciated factors were that Peter cleared his schedule to have the car back to me by the end of the next day (Friday, May 17), so that I could have my car back for the long weekend. Incidentally, it was about $3000 less expensive than a new transmission would have cost.
Owner very helpful and went out of his way to help source a part for our older vehicle.
Fast friendly service, good price.
