If trouble codes are detected the scanner reads the output from various vehicle sensors and feeds that information to the computer. This information is then helpful in determining the transmission system's electrical control system. Seven Oaks Transmissions uses high-quality transmission diagnostic equipment to help us diagnose the transmission problems of all of our customers in the Winnipeg area.

Seven Oaks Transmissions recommends you change your transmission fluid every 25,000 to 35,000 miles as part of a regular maintenance schedule for your vehicle.

When helping our auto repair shop’s customers in the Winnipeg area that have a transmission problem, our skilled technicians will often advise them that when it comes to transmission repair they have several options to choose from. And like most options in life, the options for transmission repair each have their advantages and disadvantages. Seven Oaks Transmissions tells our customers that their choice will usually be dependent on such considerations as quality, cost, as well as the duration of time that is required to return the vehicle. To help those in the Winnipeg area that have a problem with their transmission, Seven Oaks Transmissions is pleased to offer a short description of the available options for a transmission problem.

New Transmission:

Often to the surprise of the customers who come to our auto repair shop for our automotive repair expertise, new transmission are not available from any source – including automotive dealerships in the Winnipeg area. If a transmission is purchased from a dealer, that transmission is not a new transmission but rather remanufactured transmission. For those in the Winnipeg area in search of a new transmission, they should know that transmissions are only "new" when first installed into a vehicle at the factory. Needless to say, this is an important consideration when contemplating the cost of a transmission.

Rebuilt Transmission:

Another common option often chosen by those in the Winnipeg area who have transmission problems are rebuilt transmissions. Rebuilding a transmission is a very complicated process and as such requires a true transmission specialist, typically called a "transmission rebuilder". When a transmission is rebuilt, it is taken apart piece by piece, with each piece being carefully inspected for damaged or worn parts. These parts are commonly referred to in the transmission repair industry as "hard parts". The transmission is then put back together to factory specifications using what are often referred to in the transmission repair industry as soft parts, i.e. replacement gaskets, seals, bands, and clutches. At Seven Oaks Transmissions, the term "rebuilt" is commonly used when a transmission in a vehicle is removed and reinstalled after being rebuilt by a specialist, or as mentioned previously a transmission rebuilder. Other terms commonly used in the transmission repair industry for a rebuilt transmission include overhauled, reconditioned, or refurbished.

Remanufactured Transmission:

The option known as a remanufactured transmission, often referred to as a "reman" is essentially the same as a rebuilt transmission with the exception being that a remanufactured transmission usually originates from a factory. Typically there are two common methodologies for remanufacturing transmissions in a factory setting. In one scenario, a team of technicians skilled in specific areas of transmission repair is employed. For example, one transmission technician will perform the tear down (disassembly) and inspects the transmission, another technician will perform the cleaning of the transmission’s parts, followed by several technicians who work to assemble and restore various components before finally having one individual assemble the remanufactured transmission. The other method commonly used in the remanufacturing of transmissions utilizes one individual who is skilled and familiar with a particular family of or specific type of transmission(s). In such a situation this individual will rebuild the transmission from start to finish.

Regardless of the method of remanufacturing a transmission, once completed and prior to being shipped for sale, the remanufactured transmission will be tested on a machine called a dynamometer.

Repaired Transmission:

Quite often, when a customer comes to Seven Oaks Transmissions with a transmission problem, a repair of the existing transmission is all that is required. A transmission repair can include items such as a failed solenoid or broken input shaft, either of which can be replaced without needing to completely rebuild the transmission. Another situation when a repair is needed is when there is a transmission leak. When an external inspection of the transmission a leak is detected and the internal parts of the transmission have a useful remaining life, replacing the external seals of the transmission is all that is required to repair the transmission. Typically when repairing a transmission, any warranty consideration is limited to the specific part that was replaced. This can be a problem if after the transmission repair is completed an internal part fails that was not associated with the problem. When compared to a rebuilt or remanufactured transmission, a transmission repair can be cost effective but it should be noted that there is a certain element of risk involved.

Used Transmission:

Finally the last option for those in the Winnipeg area with a transmission problem is to purchase a used transmission and have it installed. A great example of a used transmission being a viable option is when for example a vehicle has been totalled by an insurance company for something as simple as an air bag being deployed when involved in a minor accident. With the exception of the minor problem, the remainder of the vehicle may be in fantastic condition and with very low mileage. Seven Oaks Transmissions does tell our customers that even though a used transmission may be cheaper than a rebuilt or remanufactured transmission, the trade-off is usually the lack of a warranty on a used transmission.

In conclusion, Seven Oaks Transmissions tells our customers that they should remember that not each and every option described is practical. Variables such as the type of car in question, the overall mileage, and failure type usually determine which option(s) are best. Seven Oaks Transmissions invites anyone in the Winnipeg area who has a transmission problem to contact us and let one of our automotive repair specialists advise you as to which option might be best for your situation!

A regular question asked of the automotive repair technicians on staff at Seven Oaks Transmissions is when should I flush my transmission? As a leading auto repair shop serving the Winnipeg and surrounding areas, Seven Oaks Transmissions usually tells our customers that in most situations and for most vehicles a transmission service, involving dropping the transmission pan and changing the transmission fluid and filter, is recommended every 30,000 to 40,000 miles - and NOT a transmission flush.

And although Seven Oaks Transmissions normally recommends a transmission service over a transmission flush, there are some situations when a transmission flush is required. For example, some transmissions do not have a filter that can be serviced. When having any type of transmission problem it is advised to have the vehicle's transmission inspected by an automotive repair specialist to help prevent or minimize any damage to the transmission.

Listed below are some of the more common transmission problems that indicate a vehicle should be brought to Seven Oaks Transmissions for a FREE external diagnostic inspection and complimentary test drive by a one of our professional transmission repair specialists.

Gear Slipping

Seven Oaks Transmissions tells our customers that just as a contaminated transmission may result in a loss of hydraulic power, not having enough transmission fluid may result in the same situation. For a car or truck to remain in the proper gear, a transmission is required to develop enough pressure. In the situation where a transmission has contaminants (clutch or metal debris for example), these contaminants can interfere with the transmission fluid flowing as intended to assist with the pressure required for proper performance.

When the transmission fluid level in a vehicle is low, it usually indicates that there is a leak and the vehicle should be brought into Seven Oaks Transmissions for a free inspection before any additional damage might occur. Additionally the discovery of contaminates in the transmission fluid may indicate a bigger problem that can result in larger problems than what a flush or service may provide. In either situation it is best to schedule an appointment and let a professional automotive repair specialists address the gear slipping problem.

Transmission Grinding or Strange Noises

A situation that can often result in symptoms that are similar to low levels of transmission fluid is when a transmission is contaminated with grease, dirt, and sludge. Seven Oaks Transmissions tells our customers that when driving around the roads of the Winnipeg and surrounding areas that if they notice a grinding or other strange noise from the transmission the vehicle should be stopped and the level of the transmission fluid should be checked with the engine still running. The color of the transmission fluid should be a bright red and not a brown or black color resulting from sludge or grime (it should be noted that some transmission fluid from European auto manufacturers has a similar color to new motor oil, i.e. golden brown).

Most importantly Seven Oaks Transmissions recommends that if there is a grinding or other strange noise coming from your vehicle's transmission, your best option is to have the transmission inspected by a qualified transmission specialist, as having a transmission flush may not be the best option for the problem and may in fact worsen the situation resulting in more damage or expensive repairs. If you live in the Winnipeg area and are having a problem with transmission grinding or noise, Seven Oaks Transmissions invites you to use the form in the contact page to schedule an external diagnostic inspection and complimentary test drive by a one of our professional transmission repair specialists!

Gear Shifting Problems

Seven Oaks Transmissions tells our customers that regardless of whether they drive a vehicle with an automatic or manual transmission, the transmission fluid should flow effortlessly throughout the transmission. When excessive sludge or dirt is present, there may be a sluggish response in the transmission, causing the vehicle to change gears too late or too quickly when driving. In addition to the vehicle responding sluggishly, in vehicle's with manual transmissions the gears may even be difficult to or not shift at all.

As with the other transmission problems our customers in the Winnipeg area may experience with their transmissions, it is best to schedule an appointment and let an automotive repair specialist inspect the transmission to help minimize any additional problem with the transmission that may result from a gear shifting problem.

Vehicle Surge

The explainable surging of a vehicle may indicate that the transmission is polluted with an abundance of contaminants or dirt and a flush is needed. A vehicle may have the tendency to jump or surge forward or fall backwards for no apparent reason if the transmission is dirty and not permitting adequate transmission fluid to flow. This is normally the result of the inconsistent flow of clean transmission fluid required to ensure proper operation of gears and other moving parts in the bell housing of a transmission.

Vehicle Movement Delay

When a vehicle stalls for a couple of seconds after having been put into gear or even before moving it may be another indication that the transmission fluid is contaminated. In this situation and when no other problems are present flushing the transmission may benefit the vehicle.

Seven Oaks Transmissions offers a performance inspection to assist in diagnosing any problems you may be experiencing with your transmission. Our thorough performance inspection includes a fluid check, examination of the pan, a driving test, and inspection using a lift. This provides a comprehensive diagnostic inspection of your vehicle's transmission performance and routine operation.

Fluid Inspection

Checking the transmission fluid is usually the primary indicator of possible transmission damage and wear. A properly operating transmission will have a clear, red fluid. If there is discoloration or an undesirable odor in combination with other trouble signs, an internal inspection of the transmission may be required. When inspecting the transmission fluid, our technicians will see if any of these symptoms may appear.

Road Test

Road testing the vehicle is comprised up of 2 parts. A stationary test and a driving test. During both of these, the transmission is inspected for sound of slipping, erratic shifting, and late or early shift patterns.

Pan Examination

Examining the transmission pan can be a great indicator of potential sources of problems as it permits a partial look at the inside of the transmission. And while most transmission pans may have some metal particulates, excessive amounts of metal are signs of internal wear and transmission damage.

Lift Inspection

Inspecting the vehicle while on a lift may determine the type of adjustment, repair or replacement that could be needed. In a lift inspection, our transmission technician will inspect the following:

Electronic Components

Fluid Retention

Neutral Switch

Manual Linkage


Modulator Vacuum

Throttle Linkage

Transmission Mounts


When the completion of your performance inspection indicates that an internal problem is present with your transmission, Seven Oaks Transmissions suggests further examination with the internal inspection of the transmission. This examination consists of the removal of the vehicle's transmission and disassembly so as to inspect the internal parts. In the internal inspection, all transmission parts are examined for wear and damage. When finished, one of our technicians will provide a report of the items that are in need of replacement or repair, along with an estimate for the same.

Post-Performance Inspection Recommendations:

No problem with the transmission: The performance inspection indicates that no repairs or adjustments are required.

Preventive Maintenance Service: This service helps to minimize or prevent any transmission problems before they begin. Our specialists will replace the transmission's fluid and filter if necessary.

External Repair / Adjustment: This service includes any repairs to the exterior of the transmission that does not involve the removal of the transmission.

Reseal Service: This process requires the transmission's removal for replacement of any leaking transmission seals. Seven Oaks Transmissions performs this service after the transmission inspection. It is intended to repair leaking transmissions that do not have any other internal problems.

Internal Inspection Services: Our transmission specialists will thoroughly evaluate all internal components of the transmission. Seven Oaks Transmissions performs this service if the performance inspection shows the transmission to have an internal problem. Seven Oaks Transmissions will remove the transmission, disassemble and inspect ALL internal transmission parts excessive wear. Upon your approval, our technician will replace only those necessary parts with parts meeting OEM specs to give the transmission an ability to obtain optimal operation and performance. Finally, when all work is completed, the transmission is reinstalled.

When the vehicle has undergone the performance inspection and you have received a professional service from our qualified specialists, the vehicle is once again ready to hit the roads of the Winnipeg area.

Kaitlin Rempel

Ted Claeys

Very smart knowledgable counter staff really helpful and very product orientated.

Laura Hildebrand

Quick service, knowledgeable and friendly staff

Mike Fuller

Great service and honest advice. I took my truck in for what i thought was a transfer case issue/noise and they spent a while going through it and listing for the noise i was hearing and checking all the know issues with these trucks. They believed it was gear lash/wear in the drive train but recommended that i didn't replace any components as everything was 100% functional and none of the bearings were showing signs (sounds) of wear and they couldn't guarantee that replacing anything would rid me of the noise i was hearing.

After several weeks of reading online and asking other shops for advice and most other sources suggesting a rebuild i found a socket slightly rolling under a floor mat that was hitting the bolt that mounts the seat to the floor. Inside the truck the noise was really muffled but underneath the truck it sounded very loud as the sound was traveling down the bolt and all across they floor board.

Anyhow, I appreciated their honesty and recommending that i don't spend the money on replacing anything as there was no other signs that anything was wrong or worn other then the noise. I will definitely be taking all of my vehicles there in the future as i trust that they are only going to recommend fixing/replacing parts that need to be replaced. They saved me 1500$ :)

Nicole Shields

Was very impressed with the service here, was having issues with my 4wd system not working properly. They quickly found the issue and repaired as needed, they kept me updated throughout the process. would highly recommend.

They listened to my concerns and made suggestions. This garage set the bar high for customer service and I will keep recommending them to friends and family.


Stellar service I brought my van to see frank without an appointment for a power steering failure he fit me in and got me back on the road. Forever grateful for their service. Thanks to the team.

Justin J

Tyler Bad Cop

My F150 Truck handles better both in the wheel and the seat than when I first bought it. Thank you!

Cris Ashton

I had my 4T65 transmission rebuilt 2-1/2 years ago. I wanted to wait a bit before giving my review so I can also comment on how it is with time and mileage on the transmission.

I can happily say that the transmission has been working flawlessly since the rebuild. I could not be happier.

The staff were also excellent to deal with. They clearly explained what is involved in the rebuild and which parts definitely needed replacing and which ones were recommended to have replaced and why they needed replacing.

Edward Wertepny

Had my trans. fluid drained & filled. Service was performed to my satisfaction.


Frankly I did not go there but spoke to them over the phone.

The 5 stars is cos they did not waste my time or theirs and said upfront they don't work on the car that I was looking to get fixed.

He was very nice and polite and suggested another shop who might work on it.

Dave Smith

This company is top notch.Starting with the owner & all of his employees. They worked on my vehicle, and we're very honest about what needed to be done. I would recommend taking your vehicle to this business anytime. Absolutely professional from top to bottom. Very polite, efficient, & courtesy people!! Thanks guys! Great

Bert Jamault

I have been bringing my vehicles to Seven Oaks for several years - and for good reason. They always take the time to clearly explain the situation with the options and never fail to resolve the issue. Bob and his staff are excellent and provide top notch customer service. The latest repair performed on my vehicle made it feel like a new car!

This is the best garage that I've ever dealt with - period. Highly recommended!

Rebecca Clifton

It was a true pleasure working with Bob, Frank and the rest of the staff here. With an old car and very little mechanical knowledge, you truly have to trust the process. They were transparent, straightforward and provided numerous detailed updates which made them so easy to trust and easy to work with. I can’t thank them enough.

Tracy Ball

This place truly cares about their clients.

Mr Wolf

Work was completed as requested. I was updated with phone calls to ensure I wanted to go forward with the work. I was shown the parts that were replaced after. Family one shop. Honest people. Wait list to get your car in is about 3 weeks, but that's reflective of the quality of service you're going to receive. Highly recommend!


Took one of my trucks to get a part repaired connected to the transmission and the service and turn around time was amazing. These are very honest people who will not charge you extra repairs if your vehicles do not need them. Great experience !

Ted Sobieski

Had a very informative and helpful discussion with the owner I believe.
