Transmission & Engine Repair

Minit-Tune & Brake Auto Centres, with their 18 locations in the Vancouver, BC and Alberta areas, have the equipment and technicians to accurately diagnose and repair all engine and transmission related problems. From minor adjustments to complete engine or transmission overhauls, trust Minit-Tune & Brake Auto Centres to repair your vehicle with quality parts that meet or exceed Original Equipment Manufacturers’ (OEM) specifications.

As with all your car’s systems, your engine and transmission should be inspected and serviced as recommended by your car’s manufacturer in your owner’s manual. Keep in mind that all these recommendations are based on “normal” use. Should you do a lot of driving in more challenging conditions, inspections and service should be more frequent. When you get an oil and filter change and maintenance package at Minit-Tune & Brake Auto Centre, we do routine visual inspections of belts, fluids, the cooling system, electrical system and exhaust system. We will let you know, as well, if spark plugs need to be replaced.

If you have noticed any transmission problems such as shaking, jerking, hesitation or slipping gears, make sure to mention these to your Minit-Tune & Brake Auto Centre mechanic when you bring your vehicle in. We have the state-of-the-art equipment, experience and high quality OEM parts to get you back on the road with confidence that your transmission has been repaired and restored to optimal performance.

Engine Problems & Repairs

The most common reason for bringing a vehicle in for a diagnosis of engine problems is that the “check engine” light is on. Most of the time, the check engine light is a signal that there is an emissions problem. A computerized diagnostic scan will usually reveal the cause and can be repaired fairly quickly. Don’t ignore the light, however, as a minor problem – the costs will add up in lower fuel efficiency as well as bigger repairs.

If you hear “pings” from the engine, you should have your engine checked by the professionals at Minit-Tune & Brake Auto Centre. While some drivers simply change to a higher octane fuel, consistent, heavy knocking sounds are usually a sign of more serious trouble that requires a skilled mechanic to pinpoint and repair. Consumer Choice Award has recognized Minit-Tune Brake & Auto Centres every year, since 2007, for consistent excellence in service – we are the place for transmission and engine repairs in Vancouver, and other cities in BC and Alberta.
