What Can a Transmission Shop Do?

What Can a Transmission Shop Do?

If you don’t know a lot about how vehicles work –which is OK, by the way; you don’t have to know all the inner workings of the automobile in order to drive one responsibly– you may find it odd that there are shops dedicated entirely to one component of the vehicle. Sure, there are other shops that specialize in specific, external parts of the vehicle, such as auto glass and tires. But this makes more sense intuitively because the technology and equipment required to service these parts are entirely different from other vehicular components. But you don’t, for example, have entire shops dedicated to servicing and repairing just the steering column or just the carburetor. So why a transmission? What does a transmission shop actually do?

The Transmission

We use the singular article “a” when talking about “a transmission” not because a transmission is a single part but because it is a collection of parts. And all of these parts have to work in harmony to make your vehicle go. The transmission transfers power generated by the engine to the axles, and then on to the wheels. Without a working transmission, your car won’t go. And without each of these parts of the transmission, your transmission won’t work properly, or maybe even at all.

All of this is to say that the transmission is incredibly intricate and complex. Knowing how to rotate tires or to gap a spark plug does not immediately qualify a technician to repair a transmission. Transmission service and repair requires a transmission expert. And where can you find a transmission expert? At a mister transmission shop.

Transmission Shops

In short, a full transmission and driveline repair shop services, maintains, repairs, and replaces transmissions. But how do they do all of these things? Well, for starters, mister transmission shops have trained and skilled expert transmission technicians. Mister transmission shops also have all the proper equipment, tools, and technology to service and repair transmissions. For transmission service, a mister transmission shop will have a rigorous testing procedure to discover and diagnose any problems your transmission might have. Mister Transmission, for example, has an exhaustive and thorough Multi-Check Inspection.

If a problem is discovered, then a transmission repair is in order. A transmission repair can be a very simple matter. Perhaps replacing a part that is easily accessible or perhaps even as straightforward as changing out the transmission fluid. Sometimes a repair involves using special technology only available at transmission shops that allow the technicians to interface with your vehicle’s onboard computer. And sometimes transmission repairs are very big ordeals that require the removal and disassembly of the transmission entirely or even replacing the transmission.

Transmission and Driveline Repair Shops

Transmission shops can also repair drivelines in addition to transmissions. The driveline is the part of the vehicle that takes the power created by the engine and transfers to the axles. The axles turn and therefore turn the wheels. Drivelines can become worn and damaged over time, so it’s a good idea to keep an eye on it. Regular inspection by a technician at a mister transmission shop can spot this wear and tear and prevent it from developing into a major problem.
