Free Performance Check
One of the simplest ways to keep your car in road ready condition is to keep up with regular vehicle maintenance. Learn more about what your vehicle needs with Milex Mr. Transmission Margate’s free performance check. Our free performance check helps to diagnose any problems with your vehicle, including a fluid check, road test, pan examination, and lift inspection/diagnosis. By giving us a fuller look at your car’s performance and general operation, we’re able to give you an accurate assessment of your vehicle’s needs.
What Does a Performance Check Include?
Our performance check begins with a fluid check. As a rule, this is the first indicator of potential transmission wear and damage. A transmission in proper condition will have clear, red fluid. If we notice discoloration or an unpleasant odor, that may indicate the need for an internal inspection.
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.
Another great indicator of potential issues is the pan examination. This test gives us a partial look inside the transmission. While all pans have some metal particles, excessive amounts of metal point to internal wear and damage to the transmission.
This step helps us determine what type of adjustment, repair, or replacement may be needed. During a lift inspection, your technician will check for the following:
- Neutral Switch
- Throttle Linkage
- Manual Linkage
- Modulator Vacuum
- Transmission Mounts
- Fluid Retention
- Electronic Components
If the results of your performance check suggest an internal problem with your transmission, we recommend an internal inspection. During the internal inspection, we’ll remove the transmission and disassemble it to examine its component parts for wear and damage. Once we’ve completed our inspection, we’ll provide you with a rundown of the services you may need, as well as an estimate for those services.
5 Recommendations After a Performance Check:
The performance check indicated that no repairs or adjustments are needed at this time. We encourage you to follow up with regular maintenance to keep your vehicle in road ready condition.
- Preventive Maintenance Service.
We’ll help you prevent transmission trouble before it starts by replacing your vehicle’s transmission fluid and filter.
- External Adjustment/Repair.
Your transmission requires repairs to the exterior. This service does not involve removal and disassembly of the transmission.
If your transmission is leaking but has no other internal problems, we’ll remove the transmission to replace all of its leaking external seals.
- Internal Inspection Services.
If we’ve determined that your transmission requires an internal inspection, we will remove the transmission and disassemble it to determine which of its component parts needs attention. We’ll only replace the necessary parts, and your technician will only make repairs upon your approval. Once our work is completed, your transmission will be reinstalled.
Once your vehicle has undergone our Performance Check and you have received an expert service from our trained technicians, you can rest assured that your vehicle is road-ready.
