Warning Signs of Transmission Trouble
We're here to take care of transmission service and repair for you, but some warning signs let you know it's time to bring your vehicle to us immediately before you incur further damage. One signal may be an illuminated dashboard light. A check engine light can mean many things, not just transmission trouble. If the light is on, let us determine the exact nature of the issue (transmission or otherwise) and correct it for you. Also, odd noises could point to a potential transmission issue. These include whining, humming, or clunking. Unusual new feelings (grinding or shaking) as your car goes through the gears may also signal a transmission problem.
Additionally, you may experience a delay between the time you press the accelerator and when the auto actually moves. You may also notice that your vehicle doesn't want to change gears, or you may feel them slipping. This occurs when the transmission moves between gears or goes into/out of gear on its own, a very dangerous occurrence. Further, you may notice a dragging clutch in a manual car, meaning that the clutch doesn't disengage as it should. If you're smelling something burning, it's possible the transmission fluid could be overheating and burning, particularly if the fluid is old. Finally, you probably have a leaking transmission if you see reddish colored fluid puddling underneath your car.
