Transmission Service

We can take a look under the hood

When did you have your transmission serviced?

Why should I have my cars transmission serviced?
To keep your transmission in top running form, RVO Automatics &  Performance Transmissions recommend servicing your transmission every 12 months or 20,000 kilometres – or whichever occurs first.  This recommendation also includes vehicles that have prolonged factory service intervals.  Many of the vehicles we see have never been serviced and are usually in for serious repairs which could have been prevented with regular maintenance.  

Here’s a more thorough description of what’s involved in a Transmission Service?

1. We test drive the vehicle prior to servicing
We always invite our clients to join us on the test drive so we can get any feedback on problems or abnormalities they may have experienced in the past regarding their transmission.

2. We inspect the transmission on the hoist
Our qualified technicians will then hoist your vehicle and compose a full inspection of the transmission, focusing and reporting any leaks, or loose / missing items. If we find any abnormalities, no additional work will be performed unless fully authorised by the client.

3. Replacement of transmission fluid, fluids filter, pan gasket
We use genuine factory recommended fluids which won’t void your new car manufactures warranty.

4. Adjustment of transmission bands (if required)
Your transmission bands can wear over time, and adjustment of the bands will ensure a smooth change of gears on your automatic transmission. This is another great reason to get your transmission serviced and inspected by us.

Latest Technologies
We use the very latest in diagnostic equipment to provide customers with exceptional service even in solving those hard to find problems that can often occur.

Whilst your transmission is being serviced (usually takes approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour*) you can wait in our waiting area and help yourself to a cup of coffee or a refreshing cup of tea.

Computer Calibration / Diagnostic Report
Some cars require calibration of your transmission computer. We utilise the very latest calibration technology. Please note calibration may incur an additional charge.
