What to Look For

The transmission, like any other car part, can experience a variety of problems during its lifetime. Leaks, burning smells, humming or grinding sounds, and gears slipping are all signs that your transmission may need servicing. Not being able to accelerate and difficulty shifting gears are other indicators you should be wary of. As with anything else, of course, preventative maintenance is key to avoiding the big whoppers. We love helping our customers schedule routine check-ups as we know this is the smartest way to operate.

Common Transmission Problems

Contamination - Transmission fluid can break down, causing the system to run hot. This increases friction and corrosion. Debris and gunk will then build up and clog the essential pathways.

Internal Wear and Tear - Damaged or worn gears and bearings will cause shaky and rough transitions.

Faulty Clutch - A vehicle that hesitates to move or shift gears indicates a problem with the clutch. Driving with a broken clutch will likely lead to further damage.

Leaks - Loss of transmission fluid will cause your transmission to seize up and stop working. Be on the lookout for dark spots on the concrete under your car.
