- Problems When Shifting
The car’s gears are an important part of the transmission system, so problems during shifting will be your first sign that something is wrong. Keep an eye out for jerking sensation when shifting, or if the car hesitates when moving to a different gear. There might also be a grinding sound when shifting in manual cars, or a shaking sensation when shifting in automatic cars. Either of these are signs that the vehicle may need transmission repair.
- Strange Sounds
Transmission issues are sometimes accompanied by unusual sounds coming from the vehicle. If your car produces whining or buzzing noises, especially when in neutral, there’s a chance that a failing transmission is the culprit. Since these sounds can be indicative of other problems. We recommend giving us a call as soon as you notice odd noises coming from your car.
- Leaking Transmission Fluid & Burning Odour
If you notice fluid underneath your vehicle, we recommend taking a closer look. Unlike oil, transmission fluid typically has a reddish hue to it. Leaving a transmission fluid leak unchecked can lead to more serious problems and costly damage to the vehicle. In addition to leaks, a burning smell is a common sign that the vehicle needs transmission repair. When the transmission is failing, the gears tend to overheat and produce friction, which is why it gives that burning odour.
