You’ve multiple options for where to bring your vehicle for service, but when it comes to the transmission, you really ought to visit a transmission specialist.
A transmission specialist is a mechanic or automotive technician who specializes in serving, maintaining, and repairing transmissions. There are even entire automotive shops dedicated to the transmission. But why?
Some shops specialize in tires. This makes sense; tires are the only part of the vehicle that (are supposed to) touch the ground, so they need to be serviced and replaced more often. And of course, dealerships can specialize in serving only one brand of vehicle. But why are there shops dedicated solely to servicing transmissions?
Transmissions are complex parts. Actually, they’re not. They’re a series of complex parts. A transmission isn’t one single entity, but rather a set of components that must work together cohesively to function properly. If one component malfunctions, that compromises the whole transmission.
A defective solenoid pack can delay how an automatic transmission changes gears, or even cause slipping. A damaged clutch can shut down a manual transmission. A lack of transmission fluid or oil can hinder and damage a transmission. There’s a lot that can go wrong and a lot to inspect. This is often too much to ask of a general automotive shop.
At a business that’s committed to fixing transmissions, you can trust that you’ll have a knowledgeable and skilled transmission specialist working on your transmission. Transmission shops have methods and equipment that other automotive shops don’t. For example, you won’t find the Mister Transmission Multi-Check Inspection anywhere other than Mister Transmission.
