What Goes into Transmission Service?

What Goes into Transmission Service?

Complicated systems require regular maintenance and service to perform optimally. That’s why you go to see a doctor at least once a year for a checkup, even if you don’t feel anything is wrong. (Or, at least, you should.). It’s why apps and operating systems require periodic updates. And it’s why your vehicle’s transmission needs regular transmission service to keep working properly.

The Transmission

The transmission is a collection of parts that work together to transfer power from the engine to your tires. Because it is a collection of parts, it is quite complex and intricate. If there is something wrong with just one part, that can render the whole transmission ineffective. What’s more, problems have a tendency to spread within transmissions. A problem with one component can affect another which affects another and on and on. This is why it’s always best to nip problems in the bud as much as possible. It never pays off to procrastinate and to keep driving with a transmission problem. And that’s why transmission service is very important.

Transmission Service

Regular transmission service ensures that any transmission problems that are hiding or bubbling under the service can be corrected before they become full-blown catastrophes. Regular transmission service will save you a lot of time and money in the long run as it can extend the lifespan of your vehicle and can prevent big transmission problems occuring at highly inopportune times.

What goes into Transmission Service?

But what actually goes into transmission service? Just what are those technicians doing when they are servicing transmissions. Every transmission shop will have a slightly different way of doing things. However, we at Mister Transmission are confident that we have devised the most exhaustive and effective transmission service available. The backbone of our transmission service is our Multi-Check Inspection.

Mister Transmission’s Multi-Check Inspection

The multi-check inspection includes the following:

  • Transmission Fluid Check

The fluid check indicates the first sign of possible wear and tear. A transmission in good condition will have clear red fluid. Discoloured fluid with an unpleasant odour indicates internal wear and damage which occurs as you drive your vehicle.

  • Road Test

The road test consists of two segments: a stationary test and a driving test. Every position of the transmission will be thoroughly tested for slipping, noises, harsh, soft or erratic shifting, as well as late or early shift patterns.

  • Lift Inspection

During the lift inspection/diagnosis our technician will check the following:
Neutral Switch
Engine RPM
Throttle Linkage
Modulators
Transmission Mounts
U-Joints
Fluid Retention
Electronic Controls
This will determine if a minor adjustment will correct the problem of your transmission.

  • Pan Examination

The pan examination is the most important part of the Mister Transmission Multi-Check. It offers a partial look inside your transmission. In all pans, we expect to find at least some metal particles and friction material. However, an excessive amount indicates internal wear and tear. If that is the case, and it is determined that a minor adjustment will not correct the problem, we will recommend Mister Transmission’s inspection service. This service will determine exactly what is wrong inside your transmission.

If you suspect that there might be something wrong with your transmission and that it needs servicing, or if you have simply gone too long without transmission service, then please contact us today.
