After bringing in your car or truck to Royal Transmissions of Dearborn for a check up of Transmission problems, our trained transmission technicians will drive your car on the road to try and simulate the transmission problems you experienced. Our Transmission mechanics are adept at recognizing transmission problems by driving your car and checking the instrument panel on your dashboard such as the tachometer gauge, speedometer, and temperature gauge. Our transmission mechanics will also look to see if any service warning lights light up on the dashboard.

During the road test, our transmission mechanics will check to see if your transmission is slipping into gear and if the transmission is shifting and engaging properly.

Transmission Diagnostic Scan

After performing a road test, our transmission mechanics at Royal Transmissions of Dearborn will hook your car up to our state of the art transmission scanner. The transmission scanner will print out a list of transmission trouble codes if any are found. Our latest design transmission scanner connects to your cars on board diagnostic port on your vehicle and will give our transmission technicians information about how your car's transmission is shifting. The on board diagnostic scan tool will alert our mechanics about any transmission problems you may have. The on board diagnostic transmission scanner will also help us in diagnosing your transmission problem by allowing us to clear the transmission problem codes and try to see when they come on again during another road test. The transmission diagnostic scan tool will also tell us if your transmission electrical components are working properly and relaying information signals to the transmission control module and powertrain control module (Engine brain box). The on board transmission diagnostic scan will check for bad transmission shift solenoids and transmission speed sensors. Our transmission mechanics will then check the car's electrical wiring for shorts, bad fuses, corrosion in the wiring, and other problems that can cause transmission shift problems such as a bad 02 sensor, or camshaft positioning sensor.

Transmission Hoist Check

Royal Transmissions of Dearborn provides free transmission fluid level check. Our trained transmission technicians will check your vehicle's transmission fluid level, color, viscosity, and content to make sure your car is properly filled. Low transmission fluid levels can lead to various transmission related problems down the road for you such as transmission overheating, transmission not shifting correctly, hard transmission shifts, harsh transmission engagement, transmission component failure due to inadequate lubrication, and so forth. In addition our transmission technicians will check the content of your transmission fluid for metal shavings, debris, coolant (anti-freeze) contamination, or water damage. Our transmission mechanics will gladly check your transmission fluid color and odor to make sure it is properly lubricating your transmission gears and components. Royal Transmissions of Dearborn will check your transmission cooler lines and case fittings to make sure they are properly transporting the automatic transmission fluid to the radiator and back to the transmission for cooling down the temperature of your automatic transmission. We can let you know if your radiator is performing at optimal range and cooling down your transmission temperature and we will check or replace your radiator cooler fittings. We can also make sure your radiator is not spewing anti-freeze into your transmission where it does not belong and can lead to transmission damage. The radiator can also cause unwanted water to enter your transmission and mess up the chemical component of the rubber seals and alter your transmission fluid chemical properties. Royal Transmissions of Dearborn will then visually inspect the undercarriage of your vehicle on the hoist for transmission fluid leaks, rusted transmission oil pans, broken transmission mounts, damage to the transmission housing (case), universal joint integrity check, transmission rear seal leak, transmission front seal leaks, transmission case connector leaks, torque converter leaks. We may elect to remove the transmission oil pan and check the pan for metal shavings and debris or a clogged transmission filter or leaking transmission pan gasket. Once the transmission oil pan is removed, our mechanics can visually inspect the integrity of your transmission's valvebody for damage.
