Transmission Maintenance & Service in Kanata, Ontario

Keep your car on the road with preventative transmission maintenance

Just as you have other parts of your car serviced, your transmission needs maintenance to ensure a long life and avoid transmission problems. Our transmission service consists of a complete diagnosis of your transmission’s performance and general operation. Several of these procedures will be performed twice; once by the centre manager, and then again by a technician. This method allows double checking of your transmission’s key systems, while providing you with added assurance.

Transmission Fluid Check

The fluid check indicates the first sign of possible wear and damage. A transmission in good condition will have a clear red fluid. If your fluid is discoloured or has unpleasant odour, this may be an indication of internal wear and damage which is occurring as you drive your vehicle. An unpleasant odour and discoloration, in combination with other symptoms, may require an internal inspection of your transmission.

Road Test

The road test consists of two segments: a stationary test and driving test, which together comprise the most detailed portion of the Multi-Check. Every position of your transmission will be thoroughly tested for slipping, noises, harsh, soft or erratic shifting, as well as late or early shift patterns.

Why Choose Us

Lift Inspection

During the lift inspection our technician will check the following:

  • Neutral Switch
  • Engine RPM
  • Throttle Linkage
  • Modulators
  • Transmission Mounts
  • U-Joints
  • Fluid Retention
  • Electronic Controls

This will determine if a minor adjustment will correct the problem of your transmission.

Pan Examination

In all pans, there are some metal particles and friction material present. However, an excessive amount indicates internal wear and damage. If that is the case, and it is determined that a minor adjustment will not correct the problem, we will recommend Mister Transmission’s inspection service. This service will determine exactly what is wrong inside your transmission.

Inspection Service

Your transmission is one of the most complex systems in your vehicle, with hundreds of precision parts operating together. Determining the problem and providing a price sometimes requires removing and even dismantling your transmission. Not only will we be able to determine the problem, we’ll also be able to determine the cause to prevent any future problems. Some of these services will require additional charges, which we will request you authorization prior to the work being performed.

Transmission Fluid Change Service

We also offer a transmission fluid change service to help ensure your transmission continues to operate at its best for years to come.

This was a great experience!...
Ron Cogan
This was a great experience! Kyle and his staff were awesome! They took the time to explain me my situation regarding my transmission so I would have a clear understanding of the issue. Their price was more reasonable than the Hyundai dealerships by a long shot! Not only did they fix the problem they also found another issue that needed to be taken care of. I found them to be honest and friendly. I suggest that if you are having transmission issues to take your car to Mister transmission! You won't be dissatisfied! Thank you Kyle and your Cree! My car is running beautifully! Well done!

Sharron Mulvey
I drove in concerned about ‘a weird noise’. I was told my brakes were DONE. Unsafe metal on metal at this point. I left with new brakes all around and 2 new control arms. Staff were kind and professional. Their concern was all about my vehicle being safe. The shop’s focus is transmissions, but their team is fully qualified for so much more. Kyle was great at putting me at ease. Made me laugh when he could see my stress, confusion and concern levels rising. Thanks for your great work.

Chris Nelder
I was on a long-distance trip when my transmission started having problems and on a friend’s recommendation, I took it to Mr. Transmission in Kanata. I explained that I was traveling and could not afford to wait in a hotel for days or weeks to get it fixed. Kyle and his colleagues went the extra mile to get it fixed as quickly as possible, and to help me navigate all the hurdles that the extended warranty company threw up to try to delay and avoid paying for the repairs. The service I received at Mr Transmission was top notch, attentive to my situation, and very professional. I am grateful to them for helping out a guy in a tough spot and getting me back on the road quickly!

Josh Eckert
Awesome automotive shop that has done absolutely everything in their power to help me. A year and a half ago I had the transmission rebuilt, and after the warranty was done a part that wasn't replaced ended up breaking and causing other damage to the parts. They kindly honored all of the warranties on all of the parts even though I was passed my warranty and helped me repair it for as cheap as humanly possible. Their service was fast and they even fixed an extra little issue for free just to help me out.I personally hope no one ever needs to replace their transmission, as it is an expensive repair but if you do these guys will do everything they can to help.

Veldon Coburn
Beyond exceptional service. Kyle was amazing. He's always available; he answers the phone outside of business hours. My Pathfinder broke down late at night (during a rain storm) and Kyle took care of matters long after the shop closed for the day. Had a nightmare of an issue with the transmission and they saved me many headaches. Kyle was always there to answer questions and get the job done. Professional and perfect.

Michael Bowmaster
On a recommendation, I brought my wife's Escape in for a transmission flush and fluid change at the Kanata location. Kyle who is the owner answers the phone - a rarity in most businesses today! He and his staff are focused on providing excellent and honest customer service. No expensive upsell, no added parts or other services suggested. I complimented Kyle on his business acumen and his response was the classic cliche phrase "I treat my customers like I would like to be treated". A lot of business owners say that but few actually practice it like Kyle and his staff.

Brent MacDonald
One of the few businesses these days that actually honored their warranty on their work without a hitch, no questions asked. Kyle always answers the phone and always has good communication. Very honest business. Buy a Cummins if you want to become a regular there lol
