What Goes Into Routine Transmission Service?

What Goes Into Routine Transmission Service

The term “routine transmission service” is a bit of a misnomer, because when it comes to transmissions, the routine can be anything but. The fact of the matter is, even though we think of transmissions as being a singular component of the engine, it is actually a highly intricate collection of parts. Each part of a transmission must be working properly for the entire transmission to operate smoothly and efficiently. Given that, routine transmission service can be quite complex and technical. Even so, it must be done, because transmission service is integral to you getting the most out of your vehicle.

Transmission Service

Like every other part and component of an automobile, the transmission requires regular service and maintenance to ensure a long life with minimal issues and problems. At Mister Transmission, we take transmissions very seriously and transmission service is our bread and butter. At Mister Transmission, our transmission service consists of a complete diagnosis of your transmission’s performance and general operation. What’s more, we perform several of these procedures twice; once by the centre manager and then again by a technician. By doing this, we double check your transmission’s key systems and provide you with added assurance.

The Crux Of Transmission Service

The ultimate key of Mister Transmission’s transmission service is our multi-check inspection. When trying to diagnose and correct any and all of your transmission’s issues, we perform a multi-check inspection. Our multi-check inspection consists of the following: a fluid check, a road test, a lift inspection/diagnosis, and a pan examination. By carrying out these four important checks, we can ensure your transmission gets the best service possible.

The Multi-Check Inspection

If your transmission is suffering from any problems of wear and tear, we’ll be able to see it by performing a fluid check. If your transmission is in good working order it will have a clear red fluid. If not, your fluid will be discoloured and possibly even have an unpleasant odour. By performing a fluid check, our technicians can determine whether or not your transmission requires an internal inspection.

Our road test is comprised of two components: a stationary test and a driving test. This is the most detailed portion of our multi-check transmission service. We test every position of your transmission for slipping, noises, harsh, soft or erratic shifting, as well as late or early shift patterns.

The lift inspection portion of our transmission service checks a whole host of different components of the transmission. In doing so, we can determine if a minor adjustment can correct the transmission problem in question. As part of the lift inspection, we will check: the neutral switch, engine RPM, throttle linkage, modulators, transmission mounts, U-joints. fluid retention, and the electronic controls.

The pan examination is quite possibly the most important portion of our transmission service. By doing so, we can get a partial look into the transmission. In every pan, we expect to find some metal particles and friction material. However, an excessive amount indicates internal wear and damage.

Please Contact Us

Our multi-check inspection is a big part of our transmission service. But there’s a lot else that goes into Mister Transmission’s transmission service, too. If you have any questions about this or anything else, please contact us today.

Christy McMurray
Thank you, Mister Transmission! After taking my vehicle to the dealership where I bought it, and paying $150 for them to tell me what I already told them was wrong, the Dealer gave me a quote of $6,500 to replace my 9 year old transmission with a factory rebuilt one, because it couldn't be fixed or rebuilt by them. Thankfully I called Mister Transmission and Chris knew exactly what the issue was, how to fix it, and it only cost me $385 for everything and it was fixed in a day. I am so grateful that Chris and Dawn run an honest operation and provide genuinely great service. Thanks again!

Sarah MacArthur
Cambridge Mister Transmission was awesome. We ended up having a small issue but they still took the time to show me where on my vehicle the problems were and fully explain the possible issues. They were prompt in getting back to me the following day and I had my vehicle back in no time. Chris and Nick were amazing and the office is so clean and pleasant. Great customer service!

Chris Elmquist
Mazda 3 AT light came on one with some bad noises and clunking. Dealer said need a new transmission for only $4400. Took it to this and a quick check they determined it needed new TCM which is very common on the mazdas. They took care of it and even did a bunch of extra work fixing a wiring harness all for the cost of the TCM . cannot say enough about how we were treated by Chris and Dawn. Would recommend them. FIRST CLASS!!!!!

Kieran Massicotte
I took my differentials down to get rebuilt and Steve was very professional and the total was 200 bucks cheaper than the quoted price and there was a few things during the whole process that didn’t go as planned as I had brought all the bearings parts and some bearings were the wrong ones and I had brought 4.88s to put in end they would not work and before continuing with anything Steve would call and double check to let you know what needs to be done and get the ok from me first before they would continue overall amazing place Steve and the guys were awesome and the work was done perfect and the diffs have never been more smooth highly recommend.
