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.

Computer systems in modern vehicles can increase efficiency and make driving easier. However, they can also make transmission services like running diagnostics more complex. Mechanics need access to the right technology. Technology that allows them to interface with a vehicle’s on-board computer system to figure out your specific transmission 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.

I recently had my car’s transmission serviced at this shop and I couldn’t be happier with the experience. The staff were knowledgeable and friendly, and they took the time to explain the issue and the repair process to me. The work was completed quickly and efficiently, and my car is now running smoothly. The price was fair and I feel confident in the quality of the work done. I would highly recommend this transmission shop to anyone in need of their services.

Black or white answers are gold in my books. Not "it may or may not be this". Anyone can plug in a scan tool and read it out loud; What separates a specialist from a regular mechanic is to have the tools to look at the data and be able to interpret it. My 2007 V6 Accord (nicknamed "Nugget") was pulling a code for a P0741 (Torque converter) shortly after another shop put a used transmission in. Their diagnosis was that the torque converter was bad, which would involve removing the transmission again after already dropping a grand in labour to install it. I wanted a second opinion before I went through the hassle of an LKQ warranty claim. Mr. T plugged in their fancy scan tool, and found a "permanent" type code that couldn't be cleared with a regular scan tool. After clearing that code, and monitoring all the values returned from the transmission (this is where their expertise comes in), they gave the nugget's transmission a clean bill of health. I was ready to drop a lot of money on a new torque converter as LKQ only covers part of the labour, and their integrity saved me that hassle... all for a diag fee? I'd do that again anyday. Thanks Brad! Hoping the nugget stays healthy for many years to come!
