If you suspect that your vehicle may have a transmission issue, you shouldn’t ignore it. It’s not going to get better on its own, and it will likely get worse over time.

Potential Warning Signs

You don’t have to be an experienced mechanic to know when something isn’t feeling the same as usual with your transmission. Actually, there are some tell-tale signs that might signal the need for transmission repair. For instance, one possible sign is a lit warning lamp on the dash panel. This particular warning light may indicate a variety of problems. One of our technicians can check your auto to determine the source of the check engine message. We can fix the problem for you regardless of whether the culprit is your transmission or another trigger. Further, clunking, humming, whining, or other new odd-sounding noises could signal transmission trouble. Also, you may feel a difference as the car moves through its gears. Perhaps you’ll notice grinding or shaking.

Another indicator of a transmission problem is the car delaying movement between the time you depress the accelerator and the time the auto actually moves. The gears may also fail to change when they should. Additionally, the gears may slip. This happens when your transmission goes in and out of gear at will or moves between gears. That can be quite dangerous. If the clutch doesn’t disengage when it should, you may experience a dragging clutch if your vehicle has a manual transmission. Beware, too, if you notice a burning odor. Your transmission could be overheating and burning the fluid, particularly if that fluid is old. Finally, observe for signs on a transmission leak. The is often indicated by a puddle of red liquid under the car.
