What Are The Most Important Transmission Services?

Transmissions need occasional service and maintenance to continue performing at high levels. We all know this. But what are some of the most important transmission services?

A Transmission Fluid Check Is Often The Go-To Service If You Suspect Something Is Wrong With Your Transmission.

Transmission fluid is absolutely vital to automatic transmissions (as similar fluids are to manual transmissions). Transmission fluid cools and lubricates your transmission and without the right amount and right quality of transmission fluid, bad things will happen. Almost every type of transmission problem there is can be caused, or at least exacerbated, by insufficient quantities or quality of transmission fluid. That’s why a fluid check is often the first transmission service technicians will perform. Transmission fluid that has an unpleasant odour or that is discoloured may lead a technician to recommend an internal inspection of a transmission. You should also have your transmission serviced periodically.

On-Board Computers Have Made Transmissions Easier To Deal With . . . Most Of The Time.

In this age of increasing computerization, it won’t surprise you to hear that most new vehicles are designed with on-board computers that can regulate the functions of the transmission. This can make for efficient and easier to drive transmission. But it also offers more things that can go wrong. A good transmission shop will offer on-board diagnostics (OBD) computer scans as part of their transmission service. With the right tools, transmission techs can interface with your vehicle’s on-board computer and can more accurately pinpoint problems.

Road Tests Are Important To See How Transmissions Behave In Real World Conditions.

Sometimes there’s nothing like just getting out there and driving a vehicle to see how the transmission is doing. Road tests are an integral part of transmission service. A good transmission shop will offer both a stationary test and driving test. Every position of a transmission should be thoroughly tested for slipping, noises, erratic shifting, and early shift patterns.

While Not Needed As Often As Other Transmission Services, Lift Inspections And Pan Examinations Can Be Key To Detecting Transmission Problems.

If a problem is suspected but not fully understood after completing the other transmission services, a technician might recommend a lift inspection that allows a tech to check a variety of different components and see if a minor adjustment can solve a problem. A pan examination can determine the extent to which a transmission is damaged.

This place is the best for transmission issues, I had a major problem on my Grand Caravan and Mike Arbueau helped me a lot. They did rebuild my transmission and I was very satisfied. I also changed the transmission oil for my second car. I really liked their honesty and transparency when serving people. Thanks Hashem

Dave
My transmission was acting up on my older Chev duramax/ Allison transmission. Luckily I was recommended to Mister transmission. Kris explained how the transmission works and why it could be happening. But would need diagnosis. Being a DIY person I appreciated the lesson in the complexity of the transmission but knew it was beyond my scope. He had me back on the road with minimum damage to my wallet. Was the best experience I have ever had at any mechanics. Will be recommending him to all my friends. Thanks again to the whole team at Mister Transmission.

Kevin Andrew
Thanks Daryl and gang!! I wish the world was full of shops like this but it’s not and that is what makes them special. I chatted with them on the phone about a part I needed for my Subaru . They quoted me for the part and service. We made an appointment for the service as I had to drive from Whistler. The appointment was kept, the service was completed exactly as they quoted and the price for parts was exactly as quoted . Thanks again Mr Transmission , you made my life easier, this is what great service feels like.
