Like many of the shops that are a part of the Guelph Garage Owners Association, Mister Transmission is a family business. Cory’s father bought Mister Transmission in 1988 and Cory grew up spending summers in the shop. Being a mechanic came easily to him – and being able to fix transmissions? Well, that’s something they do that others don’t. Cory took over ownership of the shop thirteen years ago, and it is clear that he approaches his work with excellence. “We treat everyone the same and look after everyone the best that we can every time.”
Mister Transmission specializes in transmission and drivetrain repair and service. This includes new and rebuilt transmissions, both standard and automatic, full
computer diagnostics, 4 wheel drive systems, axle replacement, clutch repair and replacement, and differential service and repair.
A vehicle’s transmission distributes power from the engine to the wheels. It allows the engine to stay running while the vehicle is stopped. The multiple speeds in a transmission allow the vehicle to reverse as well to increase vehicle speed while achieving optimal engine performance and fuel efficiency.
Signs that your transmission may be in need of a repair include a burning smell, the check engine light is on, unusual noises, grinding, shaking, sluggish performance, and vehicle surging on the highway. Some of these symptoms may indicate a number of different problems or could also be interpreted as an engine problem. “Often, by the time you know something is wrong with a transmission, the problem may have been happening for some time. Computers can do a lot of compensating. Often, there is damage to the transmission before any symptoms are noticed,” Cory explains.
Mister Transmission offers free multi-check inspections to all customers. A multi-check inspection includes a fluid check and a road test, which will thoroughly check the operation of your transmission. In certain cases, the transmission pan may be removed in order to search for metal pieces or debris, which can indicate a malfunction.
Cory’s shop receives many repair referrals from other mechanics. Most shops simply don’t have the technical knowledge or tools required for transmission repairs. For example, Cory has a dedicated technician on staff who has been building transmissions by hand for the last forty years. If your vehicle needs a transmission repair, ask your mechanic to send you to Mister Transmission.
In the spirit of customer appreciation, the Mister Transmission franchise offers all customers a chance to win their repair. By entering your invoice number in the
monthly contest form found on their website, you are eligible to have up to $1000 of the cost of your repair covered.
