Transmission Maintenance & Service
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 multi-check inspection of your transmission’s performance and general operation. In some cases, additional diagnostic work (up to and including) removing, disassembling and inspecting the transmission will be required, which is over and above, our free multi check inspection. The centre manager will give you an estimate for any required work over and above the free 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.
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.
What’s Next After Your Free Road Test and Multi Check?
*Additional Charges may apply*
During the lift inspection our technician will check the following:
- Neutral Switch
- Engine RPM
- Throttle Linkage
- Transmission Mounts
- Fluid Retention
- Electronic Controls
This will determine if a minor adjustment will correct the problem of 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.
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. Some of these services will require additional charges, which we will request you authorization prior to the work being performed.
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.

What Customers Say About Mister Transmission
Mister Transmission towed my vehicle from a dealership and completed the repair in a timely manner. Great customer service and fair price. Thank you!
Great Service. Staff were very knowledgeable and friendly
Great customer service and knowledge. The repair was a good deal, considering it was just slightly about price of fluid and parts. Thanks Mr. T!!! Jag drives nice!!!
Very pleased first time customer. With car maintenance being a new responsibility for me, Ken and David at the Markham location were very helpful and honest with explaining the repairs needed with the mature hand-me-down car I brought in. Although the car's computer reported more issues than I was expecting, Ken helped me prioritize the ones that were immediate before going on a road trip vs the ones that could wait and to keep an eye on. I was quoted for the worst case scenario and when the work was complete the price was less than half. Ken and David were very patient and respectful with my many questions, and the level of service I appreciated the most was the education they provided with respect to things to watch out for as car trouble indicators as well as product recommendations for the best performance of the specific make/model.
Ken provided great customer service!... He is very soft spoken, knowledgeable and kind... He gave me a great price and even drove me to work!.... Highly recommended!
