Manual Transmission Service & Repair St Catharines, 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

– Grinding Noises
– Noisy in Neutral – If you feel your car ‘bumping’ or ‘clanging’, this could indicate your transmission fluid needs to be topped up

AN EXCELLLENT EXPERIENCE & GREAT SERVICETwo years ago, we had our transmission repaired by Eric Duerksen at Mr. Transmission in St. Catharines.The other day we returned to the shop with problems. They discovered that there was a part failure. (from 2 years ago) Although the warranty on this part was expired 1 year ago, they honored the warranty and also did not charge us for the shop fees. We are amazed & thankful. Eric Duerksen & his shop stands behind their products and has excellent customer service. We would definitely recommend them to all our family and friends.

I know didly-squat about cars and had a transmission issue, so I brought it here.Eric diagnosed the issue and could have easily just fixed it and taken my money, but instead he referred me back to Ford because he knew the repair for my particular issue was included in an extended warranty. I got the repairs done for free the following day and Eric didn't charge me a dime for his time or diagnostic.I highly recommend Mister Transmission even without having got my repairs done here- they really do care about their customers.

Lauren McIntosh
I had the most positive experience in my dealings with Eric, at Mr. Transmission, St. Catharines. Eric is very skilled and knowledgeable. He was able to diagnosis and fix the transmission in my 2002 Saturn at a very reasonable cost. At another service, it was going to cost me in the thousands to replace my transmission. Eric kept me informed through diagnosis to repair. It was my good fortune that I followed the recommendation to go to Mr. Transmission.
