How to Tell When You Have Transmission Problems
The transmission is a crucial part of any vehicle. It is also one of the most complex and expensive to repair, so we understand the stress associated with discovering you need transmission repairs. Inside your car is a complicated series of gears powered by your vehicle’s flywheel. The transmission moves between those gears and helps power your vehicle. Essentially, without a functioning transmission, your car will not shift gears. Transmission problems are serious. Fortunately, they are also apparent. You know how your car is supposed to drive. Take immediate action if you notice the following:
- Delays Between Shifting Gears
- Car Shaking or Shuddering at All Speeds
- Fluid Visibly Leaking From the Car
- Burning Smells From Under the Hood
- Transmission Slipping, Grinding, or Jumping While Accelerating
- Unusual Sounds Coming From the Automobile
- Transmission Fluid That Is Cloudy, Thick, or Foul-Smelling
- The Gear Shifter is Hard to Move
