Free Performance Check
At Mr. Transmission, we offer our customers a free Performance Check to help diagnose any problems with your vehicle’s transmission. Our comprehensive Performance Check consists of a fluid check, road test, pan examination, and lift inspection/diagnosis. This provides a complete diagnosis of your car’s transmission performance and general operation.
What Does a Performance Check Include?
The fluid check is an important component of our all-encompassing Performance Check Generally, it serves as the first indicator of possible transmission wear and damage. A transmission in good condition will have a clear, red fluid. If there is an unpleasant odor or discoloration in combination with other symptoms, your transmission may require an internal inspection. During our inspection of your fluid, we will determine if any of these symptoms appear.
The road test is made up of 2 parts: a stationary test and a driving test. During these two tests, your transmission is checked for slipping noises, harsh/soft or erratic shifting, as well as late or early shift patterns.
The pan examination is another crucial part of the Performance Check that serves as a great indicator of potential problems. This test is effective, because it allows a partial look inside the transmission. All pans have some metal particles; however, excessive amounts of metal indicate internal wear and damage to the transmission.
This step will help determine what type of adjustment, repair, or replacement may be needed. During a lift inspection, one of our technicians will check for the following:
● Neutral Switch
● Throttle Linkage
● Manual Linkage
● Modulator Vacuum
● Transmission Mounts
● Fluid Retention
● Electronic Components
When the results of your Performance Check show that there is an internal problem with your transmission, we recommend further investigation with an internal inspection of your transmission. This inspection consists of the removal of your transmission and dis-assembly of the unit in order to view all internal parts. During this inspection, all parts will be examined for wear and damage. When the inspection is completed, one of our technicians will provide you with a report of those items that are in need of either repair or replacement, along with an estimate for those services.
