Your transmission functions as one of the most important parts of your vehicle. Transmission problems can quickly become serious — and expensive — and render your vehicle inoperable. Your transmission transfers the power of your engine to the driveshaft, which in turn operates your wheels.
With a malfunctioning transmission, your vehicle could simply stop moving. A number of common signs can indicate transmission problems. If you notice any of them, you’ll want to schedule service fast. Luckily, Global Auto Transmission Repair provides a convenient and local resource for transmission problems nationwide. Call us today at (405) 415-2077 to learn more.
Signs of Trouble
The following serve to indicate transmission problems. If you detect them, don’t hesitate, schedule service today.
- Fluid Leaks: Your transmission relies heavily on its fluid. Since transmission fluid does not get depleted like motor oil, a leak can cause serious trouble.
- Movement Delays: Transmissions are designed to go into the correct gear. Delays in this mechanism mean you’ve got a problem.
- Dipstick Inspection: Transmission fluid should be almost clear, with a pinkish tint. Brown or black fluid means you need transmission service.
- Odd Sounds: For automatic transmissions, whining or buzzing sounds indicate a problem. For manual transmissions, listen for abrupt grinding when you change gears.
- Strange Smells: A burnt smell can indicate burnt transmission fluid, which in turn means that your transmission has overheated.
- Warning Light: The transmission temperature light can indicate when your transmission operates at a higher temperature than normal.
