Manual Transmission Service & Repair Orillia, 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

Common Problems for Manual Transmission

If you are experiencing any of the following problems, you should get your transmission checked as soon as possible. Recognizing these warning signs early is key to minimizing the cost of your repair as it may only require a minor repair or service

– Check engine light is on
– Clutch is slipping – when the clutch slips, the engine will rev but the car doesn’t move as it should, or sometime not at all. This could indicate a worn clutch or clutch pedal that may require a simple adjustment, rebuild or a new clutch.
– Grinding Noises
– Noisy in Neutral – If you feel your car ‘bumping’ or ‘clanging’, this could indicate your transmission fluid needs to be topped up
– Lack of Responsiveness or delays in movement

Talk about service. Called 3 hours before closing time, was told bring truck by to look at transmission. So I arrived at 240pm on a friday, got my diagnosis,explained that my truck had gotten worse on the drive over to shop and I continued to explain how much I needed the truck in the following days to come for work. I was told that they would try to get the truck in before end of day and aim for me to get it back by Tuesday morning the latest if all parts are available. The work is not yet complete but on service this place is hands down best shop I've dealt with ever. Thanks mister transmission and crew for understanding my situation.

Came to Mr.Transmission to get a second opinion, not only were they more professional but respectful then the first place which I will not name. They worked with me and talked to me in terms that I understood and in the end my truck was fixed for a fraction of the price I was quoted. Thats the short version! These guys are Transmission Wizards and would recommend them to anyone.

Jim McHardy
My 2015 Murano is 6 months out of warranty an a 'transmission code' turned up. Nissan wanted money up front to look at it. Mr. Transmission Orillia was recommended and I had Chris assess it. He confirmed the code issue and flat out recommended I take the car to Nissan and work out something with them. At under 80,000kms, he said the warranty could be extended and I should try that process first. I am so impressed with the honesty and fairness I received by this company.Refreshing in today's world.If you have a transmission concern, I strongly suggest this company for a fair assessment.

Liz Freund
Christina is simply amazing. Not only is she very knowledgeable about all things transmission related, she remembers her customers' individual situations even when it's been months between visits - almost 2 years in my case! She's always pleasant and thorough over the phone and in person. The guys in the shop are clearly good at the work they do, but Christina really drives it home (pun intended) when it comes to providing an excellent customer-facing experience. Highly recommended!

Bjoern Ewald
Absolutely recommended! Hardworking, humble people who clearly know what they are doing. I wish every business was like that. Repaired the CVT on my 2014 Subaru and it runs like new. Price was reasonable. Glad I did not trade in the car at the dealership. Christina in the office sets a model of courtesy and professionalism, and the owner even drove me to the car rental after I dropped off the car. Can't say enough good things about these guys!

Mister Transmission
Just a shout out and 5 star review to a fellow Mr Transmission. I had the pleasure of meeting Chris a couple of weeks back and he helped me out a lot, he had parts that weren't available anywhere else in Canada! You couldn't be in better hands with Chris and Christina in Orillia. Thanks again. Kyle.

I drove up from Barrie because of the excellent reviews and my friend’s recommendation. I had an old diesel truck transmission completely rebuilt by Chris. It now works better than new. We also had our town and country van serviced too. Excellent communications with Christina and Excellent service. You won’t be disappointed with Mr. T Orillia.John V
