What Nobody Tells You About Transmission Maintenance

Transmissions can be tricky business and it’s not always clear to drivers what the best course of action is. Here is some helpful info on transmission maintenance.

The First Myth Of Transmission Maintenance: The Transmission Doesn’t Exist.

When we talk about how to maintain, service, repair, and care for a transmission, what are we actually talking about? What is the transmission? The transmission isn’t just one thing, it’s actually a set of things. Every transmission contains a plethora of different parts and components that all have their own role to play. If even just one of these components is underperforming, your entire transmission could be hampered.

Given this, it’s kind of misleading that we talk about the transmission as one single unit. It’s a collection of items. This should also give you an idea of how difficult it can be to maintain and repair a transmission. There are so many parts, and some can be hard to locate, so transmission service takes time.

Transmission Maintenance Is Best Done By Transmission Experts.

Because of the complexity of transmissions, you don’t want to trust their service to just anybody. There are many great mechanics out there who can service many different parts of your vehicle. But transmissions are different. It’s always wisest to bring your vehicle into a specialty transmission shop—such as Mister Transmission—for maintenance and repair. Specialty transmission shops have tools and expertise that mechanics at all-service auto shops and dealerships don’t have.

Automatic Transmissions Often Take Longer To Service Than Manual Transmissions.

It’s not a huge difference, but manual transmissions generally require less service than automatic transmissions. Because they are automated, there’s more that can go wrong, and they’re more intricately designed. Diagnosing, locating, and fixing a problem in an automatic transmission often takes longer than doing so in a manual transmission.

It Is Often Unwise To Fully Replace Your Transmission With A New One.

When a transmission is very badly damaged, or when the problem cannot be pinpointed, you might be offered the opportunity to have your transmission entirely replaced. At Mister Transmission, we generally advise against this unless the damage is to extensive. These “new” transmissions are typically refurbished and their parts have an unknown provenance. Instead, we recommend a transmission overhaul in which your transmission is dissected piece by piece. Each part is examined and cleaned or replaced, ensuring that the problem part has been removed.

Had a wonderful experience at the Dixie Road location managed by Aki Sahaye. My very first impression from speaking to him on the phone was that he was very respectful. I met him when I took my vehicle to his shop, and I must say, he is a very sincere and caring person. He takes pride in his work and the employees' work, and what he delivers in terms of customer service and satisfaction. He was very patient in explaining the details of the issues, and he and the few staff member I saw were all very courteous and friendly. They constantly kept us updated with their investigations of the problems, advice and estimated cost. We were expecting that we would have to do an entire change over of the transmission, but it was the sensor, battery and oil leak issue. They were honest indeed in advising of the issues. Aki was very reassuring, in terms of contacting them back if I have any problems, and I was given 3 months warranty on the work done. They looked at the vehicle very quickly and within three days I got back my vehicle as they had to order a part from the dealer and wait for it. They were expensive, but the trust, reliability and other factors mentioned above have to be taken into consideration. I left there with a feeling of being treated and respected as a family and would definitely recommend them for any transmission issues.

We went to Mr. Transmission thinking there was an issue with our trucks transmission. Bryan was so honest and transparent - told me that my trucks transmission was absolutely fine and actually told me what the problem was. I appreciate his honesty and kindness! You don't always find that kind of service but when you do, it definitely needs to be recognized! 100% recommend! Thank you again!
