Why You Definitely Shouldn't Overlook Transmission Service

Many of us lead busy lives. We all have a lot on our plates: work obligations, family responsibilities, social commitments, household chores and errands seem to take up all of our waking hours. How lucky we are if we are able to take the occasional holiday! Therefore, in the hustle and bustle of everyday life, we tend to neglect certain things.

Maybe we eat out more often than we should just because grocery shopping and meal preparation is time consuming. Or maybe we’ve been postponing that visit to the dentist or optometrist for a few months now. We don’t intend to procrastinate on matters such as these, we just get busy and overlook them. Of course we shouldn’t ignore any of those, but this article is here to convince you that there is definitely one thing in your life that you should not overlook: getting your vehicle’s transmission serviced.

Preventing Problems

Most of us rely on our vehicles: to get us to and from work, to get our kids to and from school, to do all of our necessary shopping. And not to mention the odd road trip here and there. When our vehicles break down, it can be a real nuisance. It can throw our whole week into chaos, perhaps even more than a week! That’s why it’s so important to keep our vehicles in good working order. Have you ever heard the old phrase, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”? Well, it’s true and most definitely applies to you vehicle’s longevity.

The Transmission

Your transmission is one of the most important components of your automobile – your vehicle won’t move without it! However, the transmission is hardly a simple mechanism. It is a complex piece of machinery that is made up of a series of smaller components working together that allows you to change gears and deliver the power generated by your engine to your wheels. Given all that, the transmission is not something to be neglected or overlooked.

Transmission Service

Like many things within your vehicle and, indeed, in life, if you are starting to notice problems with your transmission, bring it in for inspection immediately. It won’t just magically get better and it is likely that any problem it does have will only get worse with time. So please get it checked out before you are at a time when being without a vehicle can cause a major change in your plans.

Having said that, there’s no reason to wait for problems to develop. One way you can service your transmission yourself is by topping up the transmission fluid whenever necessary. Check your vehicle’s manual to see how often it suggests that you change out your transmission fluid. Some manuals will claim that the fluid should never need to be changed. Others will suggest changing it every 30,000, 50,000, 100,000, or 160,000 kilometres. If you’re unsure, it’s never a bad idea to ask the technicians at a reputable transmission service centre, such as a Mister Transmission. Mister Transmission offers a complete free multi-check inspection. As part of this inspection we will perform the following four tests:  A fluid check, a road test, a lift inspection/diagnosis, and a pan examination. These four tests will reveal what, if any, problems your transmission has. Regular transmission service can mean the difference between having to buy a new vehicle every 15 years instead of every five.

Kieran Massicotte
I took my differentials down to get rebuilt and Steve was very professional and the total was 200 bucks cheaper than the quoted price and there was a few things during the whole process that didn’t go as planned as I had brought all the bearings parts and some bearings were the wrong ones and I had brought 4.88s to put in end they would not work and before continuing with anything Steve would call and double check to let you know what needs to be done and get the ok from me first before they would continue overall amazing place Steve and the guys were awesome and the work was done perfect and the diffs have never been more smooth highly recommend.
