Transmission Repair & Service Moncton, New Brunswick

Pinpointing the exact cause of any transmission problem takes skill, knowledge, and investigation

The evolution of transmissions has made these machines and systems increasingly complex. When transmission repairs are required, determining the cause and cure for what ails can be tricky. Why? Because transmissions have become remarkably complex and computerized and that presents both advantages and disadvantages. On one hand, transmission performance has become noticeably better in all vehicle makes and models. On the other, the increased complexity and digitization of transmission systems has made repair work a highly technical and complicated affair.


As you can imagine, there are different types of transmission repair jobs and options you can choose from depending on the nature of your vehicle’s breakdown. Understanding what those options are can help you make informed decisions when faced with a choice of transmission repairs to weigh.

A Repair for Every Type of Transmission Malfunction

Some transmission repair work is straightforward and mechanical in nature. Other times, it’s a combination of mechanical and electronic engineering that’s required to get your car back on the road. The most common types of repair work include:

  • Adjustments and in-car repairs. Most minor repairs are simple matters that are done without removing the transmission from the vehicle. If yours is a computer-controlled transmission that is not shifting properly, it is often the result of a computer sending incorrect signals due to a faulty sensor, or the transmission is not reacting to the command because of a bad connection or defective solenoid pack. If a non-computer controlled transmission is shifting too early or too late, it may require an adjustment to the throttle cable. If the vehicle has a vacuum modulator instead of a throttle cable, there is an adjustment that can be made using an adjustment screw in some designs. In vehicles with modulators, however, it is important to ensure there are no vacuum leaks and that the engine is running at peak efficiency.
  • Reseal jobs. A transmission is re-sealed to repair external transmission fluid leaks. If you see spots of red oil on the ground under the car, your transmission may need a re-seal job. To check a transmission for leaks, a technician will put the vehicle on a lift and examine the unit for signs of oil leaks. If a leak is spotted at any of the external seals or gaskets and the transmission otherwise performs well, the technician will most likely recommend that the transmission be re-sealed. Most of the external seals can be replaced while the transmission is still in the car but, if the front seal must be replaced, the transmission must first be removed from the vehicle to gain access to it.
  • Replacing accessible parts. There are a number of parts that are accessible without requiring the removal of the complete transmission. The parts that are accessible, however, vary from transmission to transmission and most transmission repair facilities would hesitate to provide meaningful warranties on external repairs for the simple reason that they cannot see if there are any additional internal problems in the components that are only accessible by transmission removal.
  • Complete overhauls. Also known as “rebuilding a transmission”, a complete overhaul involves the removal and disassembly of the transmission in its entirety. Every part is inspected for wear and damage, then cleaned in a special cleaning solution, or replaced with another part depending on its condition. Parts that have friction surfaces, such as bands and clutches are replaced as are all seals and gaskets. The torque converter is also replaced, usually with a remanufactured one. Technical service bulletins are checked to see if the auto manufacturer recommends any modifications to correct design defects that were discovered after the transmission was built. Automobile manufacturers often make upgrade kits available to transmission shops to resolve these design defects.

Replacing or Overhauling a Transmission

When a transmission requires an overhaul, there are two options that you may have. The first is to remove your existing transmission and overhaul it, then put the rebuilt unit back in your car. The second option is to replace your existing unit with another unit that has already been rebuilt or remanufactured.

A word to the wise: replacing your transmission with a used one may not be your best option. Used transmissions often have questionable histories that could create a whole new set of challenges. New transmissions, meanwhile, are mostly aftermarket transmissions billed as new but are in fact rebuilt transmissions with new parts.

The cost of the repair is always top-of-mind and understandably so. Transmission repairs are usually unexpected (and unwelcome). The cost varies depending on the outcome of our diagnostic testing, and we will help you to understand the various factors that come into play. We also offer our customers flexible payment options.

Whichever route you choose, you can trust our transmission experts to get you and your car back on the road.

Dex Z.
My transmission had a major breakdown. Our vehicle was taken to Mr. Transmission, they were working on my vehicle the very next morning. Chris called me to inform me that the transmission was done.Chris dug deep into why and was able to find the issue. A manufacturer rebuilt transmission was installed by the next day. There were issues with that transmission.Chris and his crew were on it right away. One employee came to work early morning to work on it . The issue was not so easily found.Chris and his crew worked on my vehicle well into the night and into the days following and did not give up until it was fixed.In the end it was a manufacturer's defect and was resolved only by the tenacity of Chris and his crew.During this whole issue I was to be on holidays and Chris knew this and offered me a rental. I chose to hold off until the Monday. Chris worked on it that Saturday all day and he may even have worked on it Sunday I'm not sure.Come Monday my van was ready and when it came time to pay.... No charge. Manufacturers defect.I know that many warranties cover only the part and not the labor. Chris would take no money. He paid for the labor as well as shop materials. This I know was at his own expense and wouldn't take anything.His crew also found a shot wheel bearing during this. I was informed and they replaced it with my permission Thanks guys,I knew it was going and I appreciate you did this for me.During all the time they worked on it I got daily updates and was very happy.I wouldn't hesitate to recommend his company to anyone.Chris and his crew were very honest and straightforward.I have worked in the automotive business in the past and have met many a mechanic and I have to say I would be proud to work beside any one of his people.I am writing this while enjoying my holidays which were made possible by Mr. Transmission  and his crew Moncton.I just can't say enough about how happy I am with my tranny and the professional way I was treated.Shout out to Janna and Kirk for all the work they do for their customers, they made me feel like I mattered.Thanks very much Chris your honesty and professionalism is really appreciated.
