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.

My transmission failed on my Nissan Xterra Pro 4X last week. I called around and a lot of places would not even do the job, I was referred to this shop by a few friends. Spoke to Blair on the phone. Really great service, they did a great job in a very reasonable time frame and the price was fair also. Would come back again for sure

Mark from Mr.Transmission was absolutely awesome to deal with. After having transmission problems multiple times, he was able to fix everything 100% and with what was able to go through warranty, he did. My truck was not easy to deal with, so his patience level was amazing. I wouldn't go anywhere else for transmission problems in the future.

Darren James
Wes and crew did a great job tracking down and repairing an unusual transmission leak for me. Obviously knowledgeable, they were also persistent, adaptable, and skilled. Rather than rack up a huge bill without keeping me in the loop, Wes made sure to keep me informed and gave me the choice of continuing with previously unplanned (and potentially expensive) repairs or calling it a day. He was also very keen to make sure I understood exactly what had gone wrong and what was needed to fix it, and the extra effort he took to demystify the problem and the solution was very much appreciated. I hope that I won’t need any more transmission repairs in the future, but if I do I would not hesitate even for a second to bring it directly to this crew. Top marks!

I thought my transmission was going.(it had been slipping) so I took it to Mr Transmission on Centennial spoke to Dan. I was in absolute hysterics! Dan calmed me down and told me not to worry he would take care of it. When he came back he told me all it needed transmission fluid. I can't tell you how much I appreciated the honesty and understanding. I'm sure I wasn't the first person nor the last to come in loosing their cool. I will recommend Mr Transmission to anyone . Thanks Dan.

Denise Ruck
I'm a single mom. My transmission blew before Christmas. The staff were empathetic. They understood how much stress this caused me. Customer service was outstanding. They were honest and extremely helpful. Payment plans were an option that helped a great deal. They called me with updates and were honest with their work and their pricing!!! No surprises. Thank you, Mr. Transmission. Great experience. D. Ruck
