What Services do Transmission Shops Provide?

Transmission Shops

You can probably surmise that a transmission shop focusses its energies on repairing and maintaining transmissions. But what does that really mean? What does transmission service entail? Just what services do transmission shops provide?

Transmission shops

You may well be wondering why the owner of a vehicle would require a transmission shop at all. Why not just a general auto shop? A shop that can (or so it claims) repair or service any and all components of a vehicle. Well, the reason for that has to do with the transmission itself.

The transmission is one of the most complex and intricate components of your vehicle. For starters, it is not merely one part. The transmission consists of many different parts that all must work in tandem to ensure that your transmission –and your vehicle– works properly. Without a transmission, you can’t shift gears, and if you can’t shift gears, you can’t really go anywhere. So the transmission is as important as it is complex.

This is not the type of sophisticated machinery that you want to trust to somebody who is mostly adept at changing tires or repairing mufflers. You want a technician who has studied the transmission specifically and focusses their expertise on that. Furthermore, you want a shop with all the special equipment needed to assess, maintain, and repair transmissions. Many general auto body shops do not have this specialty equipment.

Transmission services

A good transmission shop will be able to both maintain working transmissions and repair malfunctioning ones. As we all know, prevention is better than a cure. So you need to bring your vehicle into the transmission shop regularly for routine maintenance. Otherwise, you’re tempting fate.

Transmission maintenance

The most frequently required maintenance service for a transmission has to do with the topping up and changing of transmission fluid. Without a sufficient amount or a sufficient quality of transmission fluid, your transmission will not operate properly and can start to degrade. A transmission shop can easily check your vehicle’s fluid levels and then top it up if necessary. Transmission shops can also flush the fluid out of your transmission if they have cause to believe it is too used or damaged. They will then replace the fluid.

Transmission repair

The first step in transmission repair is also part of routine maintenance. A diagnostic check Before any part of your transmission can be repaired, the technicians need to know what (if anything) is not working properly. The diagnostic check does this.

At Mister Transmission, we perform a multi check inspection. If multi check inspection reveals that any part of your transmission is not functioning properly, we can then go ahead and replace the damaged or problematic part. Many parts of the transmission are accessible while the transmission is still in the car. However, some parts are inaccessible. If one of these parts is suspected as being the problem, or the problem still is not clear, we will have to remove the transmission from the chassis. This is the kind of involved, big job for which you want a transmission shop, not just any auto shop.

Darrell Pond
Guelph....You are so lucky to have Cory and his team at Mister Transmission. I wish I could give more stars!!Was having trouble with my Honda CRV that I thought was transmission related. Cory took my car for a drive, experienced what I was talking about and ran a diagnostic on the car. Turns out that it wasn’t the transmission at all, it was the catalytic converter. Cory was forthcoming and said this wasn’t his team’s specialty.He didn’t charge me for the diagnostic and recommended I seek a general repair shop.Cory’s honesty and outstanding business acumen will have me back if and when I have a transmission problem. I will be recommending Cory and his team to everyone I know.

Bethany Corner
I am a petite, doe eyed, 20-something, female and I was amazed by their professionalism and integrity. I had a mechanic from another shop tell me he thought the problem I was having with my car was with my transmission. I took my car to Mister transmission to get a second opinion and they did a free diagnosis and told me my transmission was fine. They didn't make a penny off me, but I know for sure I will recommend them to anyone who asks because of their integrity.

I went into Mister Transmission to have what I thought was a Transmission problem. It wasn't but they found the issue in no time being a transfer case and right front axel. Only the work required was performed. Could't be happier.

Mike Uetz
Went off-roading and had my Jeep fall into a giant mud hole that ruined the engine. Decided to take my Jeep to Off-road addiction in St Thomas who were going to do an engine swap. After 2+ months, they weren't able to complete the work nor figure out the issue. They said to take it into a dealership. Dealership quoted me $10k for a new transmission. Was recommended to checkout Mister Transmission and I wish I knew about them sooner.Pete was awesome to work with, he explained everything that was wrong, documented it and took pictures. Previously the engine and transmission weren't seated properly and had cracked the transmission pump. These guys were able to rebuild my transmission, put in a new transmission pump, seat the engine and transmission properly, and have the whole thing running properly with the quoted estimate in both cost and time. I was completely amazed by how quickly they were able to fix my issues.This is the only shop I'll take my Jeep in for any work done in the future. Last year I had my gear and pinion swapped from 3.23 to 4.56, again with flawless work and 0 issues.100/10 recommend you take your vehicle here for any servicing needs. These guys know their stuff and I'm happy to throw money at them any time I need work done.
