As your vehicle gets older, it is normal for your transmission system to take on wear and tear. With each mile, the transmission fluid becomes thinner and contaminated, and it can cause unnecessary damage to the transmission. Other factors like extreme temperatures, towing, or stop and go traffic can all cause wear on your transmission system. With regular transmission maintenance, you can keep your vehicle operating well and prevent expensive repairs. At Milex Complete Auto Care - Mr. Transmission, we offer both fluid and filter exchange services as well as fluid and filter flush services. With our expert transmission maintenance, your vehicle will have better shifting, better performance, and a longer life span. We are proud to help vehicle owners from Columbus, Dublin, Grove City, Hilliard, Worthington, and the surrounding areas keep their transmission systems in top shape.
Common signs of transmission wear include:
- Loss of power upon acceleration
- Transmission is unable to go into gear

- Transmission slipping
- Chatter or grinding noise in the transmission
- Transmission leaking
- Car is unable to move
