Transmission Maintenance & Service in Hamilton, 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.

Multi-Check Inspection in Hamilton, Ontario

The Mister Transmission Multi-Check Inspection includes:

  • Fluid Check
  • Road Test
  • Lift Inspection/Diagnosis
  • Pan Examination

 

Learn more about the Multi-Check Inspection:

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.

Lift Inspection

During the lift inspection/diagnosis 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

The pan examination is the most important part of the Mister Transmission Multi-Check. It provides the centre manager, technician, and yourself with a partial look inside your transmission.

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.

 

What’s Next After Your Multi-Check Inspection?

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.

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.

I have a very rare 2009 Chevrolet Trailblazer SS that I trust very few people to work on. The Stoney Creek location (Dan) went out of their way to not only completely rebuild the transmission but fix other problems along the way thinking outside the box. I highly recommend this place to all.

Jemis Rahana
Dan Is it an upstanding guy He is honest down to earth straightforward I brought in my Porsche Panamera he was so honest that he told me that they don’t have the software to do it, but he could fix it, but there was no software for that vehicle at that location so he recommended me another spot. Thank god because everything worked out perfectly. I don’t know what to do. I don’t know where to go. He guided me he was such a humanitarian person. I leave honest reviews you could even check my other reviews I leave bad reviews, good reviews, great reviews and this one deserves a five star clean location, friendly staff overall if you have cars that need to be worked on this is the first place you should take it if you live in Hamilton he scan my car he told me what was wrong with it so nobody else could play with me. I am just so glad I discovered this location. I am going to recommend it to my mother and my father and family friends

I don't ever write long...
Kevin Vose
I don't ever write long reviews about places unless they truly have earned it and this place has. On October 20th my car broke down and I was stranded in Hamilton with my 5 month old and partner over the weekend in Ancaster staying with family. No shops were open over the weekend and the dealership only had an opening 3 weeks later. On Monday morning I called different shops for quotes and openings to get it fixed asap as we had to drive back home to Peterborough for me to return to work. I received very high quotes or a long wait time if they could even squeeze me in as it was a very busy time. It was all bad news until I called Mister Transmission at 265 Centennial Parkway North and spoke with Dan Burgess. I explained to him the situation and that we need to get back home as soon as we could. He spoke with me over the phone to let me know the break down of the possible repair costs, gave me options to choose from so it could fit within my budget and never tried to upsell anything or force any unnecessary work. He's truly a honest and genuine person and I'm happy he was my first point of contact. He wanted to check the car first before ordering anything to ensure the problem was fixed the first time. He was kind enough to help in calling a tow truck to get my car to the shop and told me to not worry about it and he'll get it done. He kept me updated throughout the process and even let me know what part had broken (i.e the pressure plate caved in and warped the clutch disc). My car was dropped off by Monday around noon and I was back on the road with it the next day almost 24 hours later. He let me see the broken part and explained what went wrong and how it could have happened. This is the type of business experience I look forward, having someone turn a stressful situation into a very smooth and happy ending. I would highly recommend anyone to bring your car here and to talk to Dan. My car is running like new and it's been many weeks since then and no issues at all. Thank you again Dan and to your team!

I highly recommend this location! Dan is a professional and will do right by you! Their prices are low and affordable! I called Sampson transmission initially, they wanted to charge me $400 before tax, for a transmission fluid change, I paid $240 before taxes at Mr Transmission!
