Free Performance Checks In Kansas City
At Milex Complete Auto Care - Mr. Transmission, we provide our valued customers here in North Kansas City with a complimentary performance check, designed to identify any potential issues with your vehicle's transmission. Our thorough check includes a fluid examination, road test, pan inspection, and lift assessment/diagnosis, offering a comprehensive evaluation of your car's transmission performance and overall functionality. We proudly provide this service to vehicle owners throughout the Northland, including Kansas City, Avondale, Claycomo, Liberty, and the surrounding areas.
What Does a Performance Check Include?
The fluid check is a vital step in our comprehensive performance check process, as it serves as the primary indicator of potential transmission wear and damage that requires repairs. In a well-maintained transmission, the fluid will be clear and red. However, if there's an unpleasant odor or unusual discoloration, along with other symptoms, it may necessitate an internal inspection of the transmission. During our examination of the fluid, we will carefully assess for the presence of any of these symptoms.
The road test is made up of two 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 pivotal step of the performance check, offering valuable insights into potential problems. This test is highly effective as it provides a partial view inside the transmission. While some metal particles are normal within the pan, an abundance of metal indicates 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
If the results of our performance check indicate an internal issue with your transmission, we highly recommend proceeding with an internal inspection. This thorough inspection involves removing the transmission and disassembling the unit to allow a comprehensive view of all internal components. 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.
