TRANSMISSION SERVICE SPECIALISTS.
THEY ALL CLAIM TO BE…
What to do?
If you look through any newspaper, you’ve probably seen ads from your local quick lube center or convenience store offering transmission fluid exchange services. And in many cases, these stores offer to service your transmission for much less than a transmission repair shop will. A certified transmission repair center has a transmission specialist that will offer you much more expertise for your transmission repair.
So is there any reason you should take your car to a transmission shop for service? Yes, there is. In fact, there are a few.
Probably the most important reason to take your car to a transmission specialist shop for service is because a service is supposed to be more than simply draining the oil. Service time is when little problems are supposed be found and fixed… before they become big problems. An experienced transmission specialist knows how to identify problems that show up during a road test or appear in the pan. And he’ll be able to make the recommendations necessary to keep those problems in check.
A lube technician may be able to change oil, but chances are he won’t be able to identify and take care of those little problems.
Another consideration is whether the shop is aware of the technical nuances that can make or break your transmission. Are they using the right fluid? And what about the filter? Many of them look similar, but using the wrong one can destroy your transmission.

Look identical, don’t they? But using the wrong one in your transmission could destroy it in just a few miles.
