Servicing Your Transmission Can Prevent a Breakdown

By Mister Transmission

Transmission Servicing

Drivers of vehicles that are long in the proverbial tooth (as well as drivers of a naturally nervy disposition) often fret about what the next thing to go wrong with their vehicle might be. Whether or not their fears are justified, it can be quite nerve racking. For many drivers, transmission problems might seem to be the worst.

This is because the transmission is such a complex and intricate collection of machinery that determining what is wrong with it and how to fix it can seem incredibly daunting. It’s not nearly as evidently simple as replacing a flat tire or broken windshield wiper. So how we can we allay these fears? What’s the best way to prevent transmission breakdowns?

Transmission service

Routine and regular transmission service and maintenance is your best defence against transmission breakdowns. Regular transmission service can help to ensure that your transmission is operating at peak efficiency. Developing problems can be nipped in the bud and maintenance can guard against degradation of the parts. But just how can transmission service do this?

The multi-check inspection

Here at Mister Transmission, the heart of our transmission service is the multi-check inspection. This is a four part inspection meant to detect and diagnose any problems your transmission may be experiencing.

It begins with the fluid check. A large number of transmission problems and breakdowns can be traced back to fluid problems. Low levels of fluid can lead to problems with the clutch and slipping out of gear. Furthermore, a fluid that is discoloured or has an unpleasant odour can indicate wear and tear within the transmission.

Then there is a road test, which itself consists of two parts: a stationary test and a driving road test. In these tests, a technician will test every position of your transmission for slipping, noises, harsh, soft or erratic shifting, as well as late or early shift patterns. Any problems detected here will lead to a further investigation.

Third, there is the lift inspection and diagnosis. During this, a technician will check the following:

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

In inspecting all these components, the technician can determine whether a minor adjustment will be enough to fix any problem that has been detected.

The last part of the multi-check inspection transmission service is the pan examination. With the pan examination, the technician can gain a partial look into your transmission. Some metal particles and friction material are likely to be present in any pan. However, an excessive amount indicates internal wear and damage. In such a case, and if it is determined that a minor adjustment cannot correct the problem, we would recommend Mister Transmission’s inspection service. This service will determine exactly what is wrong inside your transmission.

Kieran Massicotte
I took my differentials down to get rebuilt and Steve was very professional and the total was 200 bucks cheaper than the quoted price and there was a few things during the whole process that didn’t go as planned as I had brought all the bearings parts and some bearings were the wrong ones and I had brought 4.88s to put in end they would not work and before continuing with anything Steve would call and double check to let you know what needs to be done and get the ok from me first before they would continue overall amazing place Steve and the guys were awesome and the work was done perfect and the diffs have never been more smooth highly recommend.
