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.

The key to the transmission service provided by Mister Transmission is that our technicians are experts. They can detect the subtlest problems that the average driver may not notice.

Plus, regular maintenance actions such as topping up or changing out transmission fluid can go a long way to preserving the life and efficiency of your transmission.

Matt and his team are a breathe of fresh air to work with after years of headaches with untrustworthy mechanics & shops. I drive a lifted truck and had my transmission replaced here a few months ago and I've had nothing but great, honest service since my very first phone call with Matt. I usually do all my own maintenance but I felt so confident, I've taken my truck here 4/5 times since (unrelated issues) even sometimes for little things that I could fix myself, just because I trust them to do a thorough job and give me all the details step by step. ALSO, As someone whos had issues with mechanics "Joy Riding" their vehicles before I was ecstatic to see that Matt & his team take extreme care when test driving vehicles (hidden dashcam, so its not because they noticed they were being watched)This is the first ever review I've written for anything, ever. So rest assured the service at Mr. Transmission on Bath Road had to have been pretty awesome for me to leave this.Thanks guys hopefully I don't ever see you again LOL
