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.

Customer Reviews
Our regular mechanic referred us...
Cory Baron
Our regular mechanic referred us to Mr. Transmission after the CVT in our 2014 Nissan Pathfinder needed replacement. It is a far better option than working directly with the dealership. The price was fair, service was professional, expectations were clear, and there is a 3 year warranty on the work, compared to 1 year from Nissan. We had a minor post-service follow-up that they looked at with no issue or extra charges. We also had a second vehicle in for a suspension replacement and transmission flush. Phil kindly agreed to take my car on an additional road test to assure me all was good. I'm glad to recommend Mr. Transmission and appreciate the professional service from Phil and team!

Noel Smith
Very pleased with the assessment and repair of my vehicle. The technician also found and repaired faulty work from recent work performed by another business. Had this been missed it could have been very costly in the near future. Will use “Mr. T” in Calgary for all my service needs in the future.

I was referred to Mr. Transmission on Queenston Road in Stoney Creek when there were obvious issues going on with my vehicle. The owner is very nice and Dan went above and beyond. I truly appreciate all they did for me and would highly recommend them to anyone needing work done. My vehicle runs like a dream and I expect the work that was done will extend the life of my vehicle for another 5 to 6 years versus buying a new car. Thanks Dan/Mr. Transmission!
