Common Problems with Automatic Transmissons
An automatic transmission is commonplace in modern vehicles. It automatically selects the gears for you–all you have to do is shift into Drive, Reverse, or Park. The continuously variable transmission (CVT) is a more recent automatic transmission, but instead of gears, it uses two pulleys and a belt. Both transmissions are designed to last for the vehicle's life, but that doesn’t mean complications cannot occur. You may experience a transmission fluid leak, worn bearings, defective solenoids, or a faulty pressure pump in an automatic transmission. A common problem with the CVT is low or contaminated transmission fluid; a loss of acceleration, overheating, transmission slipping, and shuddering is all symptoms. If there’s a problem with an automatic transmission, your vehicle has many ways to let you know: grinding or shaking when in gear, a whining or humming noise, a lack of response in gear, leaking fluid, or simply the check engine light coming on. The sooner you let our transmission repair specialists address your transmission issues, the sooner your car will be back in top-performance condition–and the sooner your peace of mind will be restored.
Common Problems with Manual Transmissions
A manual transmission requires driver input to operate through the accelerator, brake pedal, clutch, and gear selector. Similar to automatic and CVTs, manual transmissions are generally low maintenance. Issues can still crop up, though; when they do, our transmission repair team is here with the fix! Manual transmission problems can be presented in a number of ways, such as a grinding sound when shifting, failure to get into gear, a delay in the transmission’s movement, or strange sounds (squealing, thumping, or whirring). Whether your transmission has worngears, loose shafts, worn gear teeth, misaligned clutch housing, or a loose shift cover, we have the solution with our professional manual transmission repair. We invite you to visit our auto shop today at 9629 Reisterstown Road, Owings Mills, MD 21117, where we guarantee expert workmanship every time.
