Transmission Maintenance & Service in Sarnia, 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.

Aelizabeth_93
Bob was very kind and easy to work with, and and big thank you to all staff!! They were quick to diagnose the issue with the differential and order the part we needed. They also made sure I got the best part for my vehicle before servicing, and with a new baby I really appreciated them being honest and waiting. It's also nice to drive my vechicle without hearing the awful noise it was making, and knowing every turn i took was probably making it worse!! It was also very helpful for my current situation to be able to use their financing option. If you need a repair but are worried about having lots of money up front, it was truly helpful and stress free!

I arrived unannounced at the end of the day with a disturbing loud rattle that I feared might be a brake problem. Bob and his employee took my vehicle into the shop right away and fixed the problem, which turned out to be a loose metal cover that was hitting the drive shaft. I had never visited this business before, yet they helped me out and said there was no charge! What fast, courteous, and generous service! I will definitely recommend Mister Transmission to anyone with car troubles!!

Cassy Ejiaga
Was referred to Mister Transmission from another shop for a transfer case issue. He found the issue and replaced the transfer case. After there was still a noise before returning vehicle to me. He called and had figured out it was rear differentials that needed replaced too.He fixed all issues and dealt with my warranty company for costs. Everything was a smooth transaction and not too long on time considering we needed 2 different parts.Bob always answered the phone and answered all my questions. Very pleased with how everything went. Very fair and reasonable.
