What Are Technological Diagnostics For Transmissions?

Discover what you need to know about technological diagnostics, why they’re important, and how transmission experts assess and diagnose transmission problems.

What Are Technological Diagnostics?

Diagnostics are the process of diagnosing somebody or something. Just as doctors may run tests on you to find out what ailment you have, so too do transmission technicians run tests on transmissions to find out what’s wrong with them. Back in the day, these tests were entirely mechanical because transmissions were entirely mechanical. In one sense, this was simpler, because it required no computer knowledge. But it was also a very inexact procedure.

Today, transmissions are more sophisticated. There are on-board computer systems in your vehicle to help regulate and monitor your transmission. This requires high-tech diagnostic tools to provide an accurate diagnosis. In modern vehicles, there is a lot of computing power directing, assessing, and recording data on every essential function of your vehicle.

Diagnosing Transmission Problems

It’s not hard to diagnose a problem like a flat tire or a broken taillight. But transmissions are trickier. Why did your transmission just slip into neutral? Why is your check engine light illuminated? There could be multiple explanations. The check engine light can mean a lot of things. If your transmission slips into neutral after you shift into drive, you don’t automatically know why. A transmission shop with knowledgeable technicians and cutting-edge equipment can run diagnostics and determine the cause of such problems.

At Mister Transmission, we have that technology.

What Technological Diagnostics Tell Us About Transmissions

The first step of a technological diagnostic is to connect the diagnostic equipment to a vehicle’s on-board computer. This creates a code which gives us an idea of where the problem is. After addressing whatever the code tells us, we take your vehicle for a test drive so that we can assess its behaviour in real-world conditions. After that, we may determine that a more comprehensive, hands-on evaluation is needed. Diagnostic technology is a key tool in figuring out what service a transmission requires.

Chantelle Kaiser
I'd recommend this shop to anyone looking for quality service, through evaluating, and timely responses! Upon calling for an concern reguarding my 2006 Yaris. Janice was exceptionally kind and informative, allowing my car to be taken in within a time frame that was excellent. She informed me about what their technicians would be doing upon given a diagnosis. Whilst having their technicians test drive my car and doing an inspection of my area of concern. As a first-time car owner, they reassured me throughout the entire process. Explaining everything along the way, I knew I could trust them given their transparency and willingness to answer questions. Upon picking my car up today, they allowed me to take a test drive with their technician Rob! He was amazing at answering many questions in a way that educated me ! Thank you Rob for giving that extra reassurance for my car! The owners Shawna and Dave are exceptionally personable and evidently passionate about their business. I'm exceptionally greatful for the time everyone took to help me in a stressful time. 100% recommended giving your business to this wonderful team!
