Transmission Service & Maintenance Tips

It’s not always easy to get transmission service and maintenance right, but we at Mister Transmission are here to help with some handy tips.

Good Transmission Service & Maintenance Starts With Checking Your Transmission Fluid.

There isn’t a transmission problem around that low levels of transmission fluid can not cause or at least exacerbate. We at Mister Transmission believe that good transmission maintenance involves checking your transmission fluid once per month. Yes, that is more often than some others suggest, but that just means your worst case scenario is that some months all you have to do is check it, and then leave it be. It’s usually best to follow a schedule. For example, you can take some time on the first Saturday of every month to pop your hood, dip your dipstick into your transmission fluid, and check the level. If it’s below the recommended level, top it up. It’s easy enough to do, but if you don’t feel confident, or your vehicle does not have a dipstick ,we at Mister Transmission would be happy to do it for you.

It’s important to not just check the fluid level, but also check the quality of the fluid. Good transmission fluid should have a reddish (or sometimes greenish) translucent appearance and it should smell pretty neutral. If your transmission fluid smells bad or burnt, or if it’s opaque, then there’s a problem with your transmission. At that point, it’s wisest to bring your vehicle into Mister Transmission as soon as possible for some transmission service.

Good Transmission Maintenance Includes Checking For Leaks.

If you’re finding yourself having to top up your fluid levels every month, something is wrong. The most likely culprit is a leak. It’s sensible to check under your vehicle now and then and check for patches of transmission fluid.

Leave Your Transmission Maintenance Up To Mister Transmission.

Even if you treat your transmission well and follow your vehicle’s user manual’s recommendations, good transmission maintenance still requires the eyes and hands of professionals. At Mister Transmission, our Multi-Check Inspection can detect any minor issues and we can replace small things like the transmission filter just to be safe.

Our Multi-Check Inspection consists of four main parts. First, we perform a visual inspection to see if anything is visibly wrong with your transmission. Second, we perform a fluid check (on models with dipsticks). After that comes the road test. This is where we get to try out your transmission in real-world conditions. Last is the on-board diagnostics (OBD) computer scan that lets us scan your vehicle’s on-board computer to see if we can detect any problems.
