Common Transmission Warning Signs and How to Avoid Them
How do you know when it is time to have someone look at your transmission? A few of the more common warning signs related to transmission repair are a burnt smell, loss of fluid, or a discoloration of fluid. Transmission fluid is red and should smell sweet. Checking your fluid regularly can help you avoid transmission repair and help diagnose problems sooner. When doing this take notice of the dipstick; is the dipstick sticky? If so, there may be a buildup of varnish.
Warning signs to look out for when driving your vehicle are not getting enough power when pressing the gas, slipping gears, and shifting too late or early. Does your transmission bump when shifting into neutral. These are all signs you need transmission repair soon.
There are also a couple audible warning signs to alert you to the necessity of transmission repair. Automatic and Manual transmissions react differently when they are malfunctioning. Listening to how your car sounds while running can help you notice problems and react to avoid costly repairs. Concerning a manual car, if you hear grinding noises when shifting into gears or after fully engaging the clutch, you may have a worn clutch or need an adjustment. In fact you could be damaging or wearing out your gears synchronizers. With an automatic transmission, you may hear a whining, humming or buzzing sound. Also, when driving, your car may shimmy into gears rather than shifting smoothly without being noticeable. If you are noticing any of these problems, we suggest you have a professional look at your vehicle for further diagnosis.
