Frequently Asked Questions About Transmission Repair and Service
1) What is a transmission service?
Precise Transmission offers 2 types of transmission services, a regular service and a full flush service. Both services include replacement of the pan gasket and filter but with a regular service only 4L (40%) of the transmission fluid is replaced while with the full flush 10-12L (98%) is replaced.
2) How often should I have my transmission fluid changed?
It is recommended that you change your fluid every 2 years or 40,000 km.
3) What should my transmission fluid look like?
It should be bright cherry red. Anything other than this may indicate a transmission problem.
4) What types of transmission services and repairs do you offer?
We offer complete transmission service and repairs for all makes and models of vehicles, foreign and domestic as well as high performance vehicles.
5) How much do transmission repairs cost?
The cost to repair will depend on the condition of your transmission. To assess the condition we first perform our FREE road test. Most late model vehicles are electronically controlled and it’s possible that the symptom that you feel could be something other than a transmission problem. If the free road test indicates an internal problem we will need to perform our Remove, Disassemble and Install (RDI) Service, for which there is a charge, to give you an exact cost of repair. We will obtain your authorization before we begin any service for which there is a charge.
6) How long will the FREE road test and external examination take?
Generally, our road test and external examination service takes 15 minutes. This will include an initial road test, and an external inspection. We encourage our customers to wait while this service is performed.
7) What if I decide I don’t want any work done?
That choice will always be yours and if that is the direction you wish to go, there is no charge for our road test and external examination.
8) What type of guarantee does Precise Transmission offer?
All minor repairs come with a 6 month/10,000-km warranty. Major repairs come with a 12-month/30,000 km warranty. Extended 2yrs/50,000km warranties are available for an additional charge.
9) What are my payment options?
Transmission repairs can be expensive, and they often occur unexpectedly. Precise Transmission accepts VISA, Mastercard, Debit and Cash.
10) Can I wait to have the car repaired?
Yes, but the longer you drive the vehicle, the worse the condition will become. The worse the condition becomes, the more it will eventually cost to repair. If you are interested in saving money, the best thing would be to bring it in right away. After all, it might be something simple.
11) Why can’t you give me a price over the phone?
Many times, customers call with what appears to be something serious and it turns out to be something relatively minor. In other words, only after a complete and thorough evaluation on the transmission is made and the cause of the symptom is identified can Precise offer you a price. We will be in a much better position to do that after our free road test and evaluation.
