Manual Transmission Service & Repair Owen Sound, 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

Devin Palileo
Had transmission issues, problem with shifting gears. The manager Chris was amazing, helpful, informative, and very kind overall to talk to. After figuring out the issue was the accelerator sensor not the actual transmission, he didn't pressure me at all, in utilizing them to fix the issue. However, since they found the issue, and were very kind about it, I went ahead and had them do the work. Even upon pick up,the service was great. I highly recommend Mister Transmission for auto services, especially the one here in Owen Sound. Will definitely look into them for any possible future auto services I may need later on.
