Automatic Transmission Service & Repair
The transmission is the most complicated part of your vehicle, with over 750 components working together to get your vehicle to move. Modern automatic transmissions include a combination of mechanical, hydraulic, electronic and computer-controlled systems which requires specialized skills and knowledge to diagnose and repair any problems you are experiencing. 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?
If you suspect your automatic transmission is not performing as it should be, bring it in to your local Mister Transmission. We always start with our FREE Road Test and Multi Check Inspection to identify any problems with your transmission and provide you with different repair options. 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
Had huge issues with my jeep that both the dealership and Offroad Addiction could not solve, who's only fix was "replace all the things." Pete and his team had the knowledge to actually fix the problem, provided incredibly close estimates and the first mechanic shop I've been to that delivers the fix on the date they say it'll be done. I'll only be going to Pete's shop for anything mechanical related.
Great service, and very knowledgeable
Overall I was satisfied with the service, they helped me in a quick timely manner and were willing to work with my budget. My only complaint is that I told the shop I only had $1500 total ($500 cash and $1000 space on my credit card). I explained that if the problem couldn't be fixed for $1500, then I wouldn't be able to fix it. The manager told me it would be no problem to keep it around that budget and that he would be able to fix it for $1500. When he called, he told me my TOTAL price would be $1508 and change. He did not say $1508 plus tax. When I got to the shop to pay for my invoice and get my van back, It was $200 more than I expected it to be ($1704). (Being on a fixed income, I was a bit embarrassed, as I did not have a way of obtaining the extra funds at that very moment). The manager apologized for the misunderstanding and was able to bring my bill down to $1619 and explained that I could pay the remainder when I come back for the re-check. I just wish he would have been upfront and told me the total price (tax included) before I came to the shop, as this would have saved me some embarrassment and shame of not being able to pay the unexpected additional $119 when arriving at the shop.
Amazing service and surprisingly fast. Techs were extremely knowledgable, transparent and helpful. Will be doing all future repairs at Mister Transmission from now on, definitely gained my trust.
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.
