How a Transmission Inspection works with My Auto Shop:

First our qualified mechanics will check the fluid levels of the clutch or transmission to ensure there is no leak and that the system is topped up. They will then complete a diagnostic scan.

They will then quote up any repairs or replacement parts if required.

When your vehicle does not shift from park to drive its often as a result of a:

  • Failed brake light switch
  • Bad shift interlock solenoid or wiring
  • Broken transmission shift cable
  • Ignition key tumbler is worn out
  • Broken shifter mechanism

Popular services linked to a Transmission Inspection:

Automatic Selector Cable Replacement

In a manual transmission, the gear lever is what selects and changes the gear you’re in. In an automatic transmission, it’s the selector cable. Also known as an automatic selector cable, the automatic transmission still handles changing gears as you drive but the selector cable is what determines whether you’re in park, reverse, neutral or drive.

Torque Converter Seal Replacement

A key component of an automatic transmission, the torque converter is a fluid-filled component that directs the transmission fluid according to the drive conditions and allows the vehicle to come to a stop without stalling.

Transmission Fluid Replacement

Transmission fluid ensures the internal parts of your transmission avoid excess wear and tear and helps to ensure they do not overheat. Generally vehicles require their transmission fluid to be replaced about every 36 months of 30,000kms.

Driveshaft Seal Replacement

A rubber or metal seal that prevents fluids from escaping from the transmission, differential, or transfer case.
