Why You Need to Visit a Transmission Shop

We all know that we should see our doctor for a general physical check-up, probably once a year, assuming we don’t notice anything wrong. We know that we should see a dentist or dental hygienist regularly. We know that we should see an optometrist regularly. We don’t always see these health care professionals as often as we ought to, but we understand why we’re supposed to see them regularly. It’s important to get routine check-ups to make sure everything is working correctly and to nip any possible problems in the bud.

The same is true of your vehicle. It needs proper care to run properly. That means rotating your tires, putting on winter tires if you live in a cold climate, topping up your windshield wiper fluid, ensuring your brakes are taut and firm, checking your engine oil, and more. This means bringing your vehicle into an auto shop whenever necessary. But a transmission shop? Why do you need a transmission shop?

The Transmission

The transmission needs a special shop because it is a special component of your vehicle. The transmission is as complicated as it is integral to your vehicle. Indeed, only the engine rivals the transmission in complexity. This is because transmissions contain dozens of other parts and components that all must work together in order for your transmission to function. All it takes is just one component of many to be failing and the transmission’s efficacy can be greatly reduced, or it might not even work at all. And if you’re transmission isn’t working, you’re not going anywhere.

Transmission Shops

This is why transmission shops are necessary. You wouldn’t see a dentist to examine your eyes and you wouldn’t hire a plumber to fix your furnace. Specialized parts require specialized knowledge. And you don’t want to risk your transmission’s health, so this is why it is best to bring your vehicle in to see technicians who are specially trained and experienced in servicing transmissions. And where can you find said technicians? At a transmission shop.

Our technicians are highly skilled and complete extensive training on transmission rebuilding and repairs. This means that they can identify the parts that are worn, failed or damaged, and only these parts are replaced in transmission rebuilds, which can often save you money compared to a transmission replacement.

What Transmission Shops Can Do For You

In some respects, knowing how to tune up your own vehicle is a lost art. It would be great if we all knew how to perform basic repairs and routine maintenance on our vehicles. But apart from a few things here and there, that’s not practical any more. Vehicles have become more complex and sophisticated over the years, so there’s only so much you can do. And this is especially true for the transmission.

When it comes to transmissions, you can top up your own transmission fluid. What else can you do? That might be it, frankly. Can you figure out why your transmission is slipping out of gear on its own? Why it’s clunking and grinding when you shift gears? Do you know how to properly reseal a transmission to prevent those leaks you’ve been seeing? Do you have a special computer that can interface with your vehicle’s onboard computer in order to detect problems with your transmission?

With over 350 different types of transmissions, you need someone who specializes in transmission servicing and repair. At Mister Transmission, we have over 55 years of experience in the transmission industry to service your vehicle to the highest standards possible.

Jaimin Patel
I have a 2015 Mazda 3 with automatic transmission. It is having jerking issue at 2nd gear when the car is cold. One of my known mechanic suggested Ken for transmission issues. I went there and parked my car overnight to make sure it is cold. In morning, Ken drove it and figure out instantly it was a computer mechanism trying to save fuel by engaging clutch and gear differently, which is normal and I should not spend any money on it. I liked Ken's experience and knowledge and his guidance which saved me going broke.

I had my 2007 Toyota Rav 4 transmission rebuilt almost 2 years ago. Decided to bring it back for a transmission fluid change and for another check before the warranty expires. What I didn’t tell them is that there’s already a leak (my neighbour told me). I’m giving this business a 5 star review because they are honest. They told me it had a leak and they had to replace the seal, and it was still under warranty. Wow! Thank you!!!
