Everything seems to be computerized these days and automobiles are no different, that’s why Mister Transmission are transmission technology specialists.
Car mechanics had to up their game in the late 1930s to be able to repair and service the newly introduced semi-automatic transmissions. If you showed those mechanics a transmission built in 2022, it’s possible they wouldn’t even recognize what it was. The evolution of the transmission has created some truly remarkable complex machines. The modern transmission intricately blends mechanics, hydraulics, and electronics. Inspecting, maintaining, and repairing these transmissions requires advanced transmission diagnostic tools. Mister Transmission technicians are professionals trained in the use of these high-tech systems.
Transmissions today are regulated and governed by their vehicles’ onboard computers. When you have a problem with your transmission, you want to take it to a transmission shop where the technicians have access to high-tech diagnostic tools. They can use these tools to determine what’s wrong with your transmission.
Modern, computer-controlled transmissions give drivers more control of their vehicles. It makes transmissions more efficient and easier to drive. It can also make technicians’ diagnostic and service processes easier, though it makes transmission repair and maintenance nearly impossible for those who don’t have the right sophisticated technology. The computer that manages the transmission sends and receives information about the transmission’s performance and operation. Technicians can use digital scanning tools to decipher that information. This helps them figure out the cause of any potential transmission problem.
If you’re having problems with your transmission, the on-board computer will log what’s known as an error fault code in the car’s onboard computer. If your transmission is malfunctioning, the technician’s scan tool will receive that error code. This can indicate where and what the problem is.
However, transmission repair isn’t just an IT job these days. Technicians still need to possess traditional automotive repair knowhow. Mister Transmission’s technicians can make a comprehensive assessment of your transmission system to figure out what is going wrong. As a driver, the best way for you to avoid a transmission failure is by having preventive maintenance performed regularly on your vehicle by one of our expert technicians.
