What Are The Benefits Of Transmission Service?

What Are The Benefits Of Transmission Service?

Just as humans have to see the doctor regularly, automobiles also need regular checkups. But why do we specifically need transmission service? What are the tangible benefits of transmission service?

The Transmission Is As Important As It Is Complex. It Requires Special Care.

You might be thinking, “Yes, I see the doctor for regular checkups. But I don’t see a cardiologist or a nephrologist unless something is wrong”. By this logic, you should only bring your vehicle in for transmission service when you think there’s a problem, right? Perhaps, but the problem here is that you’ve analogized the transmission to the wrong human body part.

The transmission is more like your teeth. Or maybe your eyes. Certainly not in terms of function, but if we’re going to go forward with this (slightly tortured) analogy, your car’s transmission requires special service just as your teeth and eyes do. You don’t go to a GP for your teeth or eyes; you need to see a specialist, like a dentist or an optometrist. Well, transmissions need their own specialists. Only the experts at a transmission shop and give your transmission the service it needs to keep operating efficiently and safely.

A Dental Hygienist Cleans Your Teeth. Does Transmission Service Merely Comprise Of Cleaning?

No, transmission service goes far beyond cleaning your transmission, though that can be a component. Transmissions sometimes need to be “cleaned” in the sense that sometimes transmission fluid becomes damaged, either by being burned or by accumulating too much particulate matter. In such cases, the transmission fluid might need to be flushed out and replaced with new fluid.

An Optometrist Tests Your Eyes To See If Your Eyesight Is Deteriorating. Does Transmission Service Involve Testing A Transmission For Problems?

Yes, transmission service means testing your transmission. That is how a transmission technician may come to learn that you have damaged transmission fluid. Whether you think you’ve noticed an issue with your transmission, or it’s been a while since your last checkup (e.g. 30,000 – 60,000 miles/45,000 – 90,000 km), bring your transmission in for a diagnostic service.

Mister Transmission’s Transmission Service Consists Of Our Hallmark Multi-Check Inspection.
