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.

Steve Pearce
My VW Golf transmission was slipping, after going to 6 different mechanics and transmission places i ended up talking to Steve, He said to bring the car in the next morning. I was there on time and Steve had a hoist empty for my appointment. They put the car on the hoist and topped up the transmission fluid. They didn't try to sell me anything or tell me there were other things wrong with the transmission. I will not hesitate to take my car there if i have a future problem with it.

My power steering line broke on a Friday afternoon. After calling several shops, I decided to go with Mister Transmission because Steve was the first who gave me clear, definite answers to all my questions. I had the car delivered to the shop. Steve said he would call on Monday with a plan and so he did, first thing Monday morning. Since everything under the hood was covered in fluid, Steve assessed that after a clean-up he would be able to better see all the issues at hand. I had concerns about a different line as I had a leak that was diagnosed as a break fluid leak. Steve carefully listened to all the details I provided and communicated with me clearly. In the afternoon he called again to say that my pump had failed since it ran out of fluid. He gave me a price estimate for the pump and saved me some money by fixing my existing power steering line rather than replacing it. Steve also provided a time estimate for when the car would be ready for pick-up - Tuesday afternoon and delivered as estimated. I am very pleased with the outcome and I would recommend Mister Transmission for the following reasons:1. Two way effective communication2. Problem solving3. No hidden agendas4. I was not told fables about things that would need to be fixed on the car - to squeeze in some extra money on the bill as it happens in other shops when one is a female - so extra thumbs up for that5. Efficient6. On time7. Good quality8. Pleasant and courteousThank you Steve and Team! 😁

I just picked up my Ford Ranger today and I'm very pleased. The technician team went way beyond what was requested at no added cost...great savings for me! My vehicle was at the shop for less than 24 hours and Steve kept me totally informed as they troubleshot my problem. I would highly recommend Stoney Creek Mister Transmission for anyone looking for great and quick service.Thanks for the great job, guys!!

John Arnold
We bought a rebuilt 2014 Caravan and had driven it without issue for five years.A few weeks ago we noticed transmission fluid on the driveway and that in the morning it was taking about a minute to go in to drive.I phoned around to a few transmission shops, most of whom wanted a preliminary fee to scan and look at the issue which would come off the bill if I let them do the work,I then called Mr. Transmission on Centennial and talked to Steve. Steve told me that an inspection was free.I told Steve I knew little of how a transmission worked and did'nt know who to trust on this issue- he guarenteed me he was an honest trustworthy business man who would give me the straight run down on my car.As it turns out my transmission was in very poor condition and needed major work to correct.Steve gave me an approximate estimate and by no means is this work inexpensive, however his estimate was fair and thorough.As the work progressed, other issues came forward. Steve called me on these and explained the problems with no pressure for him to perform the extra work, but recommendations on why it should be done and the reason to have it done while the transmission was already pulled out of the vehicle.There were many things Steve looked after that saved me cost in this repair and he made me feel as though my satifaction to his repair was his top priority.The repair was completed and done properly. Steve's assurance of quality and cost was adhered to and done with courtesy and professionalism.I stronly advise anyone who needs transmission service done to call Steve first and save yourself future grief and cost from other repair shops- this is a major repair and you need someone you can trust to do the job- call Steve.John Arnold
