Your vehicle’s transmission is one of its most critical components. Knowing how to recognize the signs that you need transmission repair can help you get problems fixed earlier and save you money while keeping your car safe and reliable.
Your car should shift smoothly no matter what gear it’s in, and stay in the correct gear for the speed you are driving. It’s time to get the transmission checked out by a trusted mechanic, such as one that is familiar with your car, its brakes, tires and wheel alignment if you notice any disturbance when shifting gears. The same is true if the vehicle hesitates between gears.
Whining or Grinding Noises
Your transmission should not be making noises as it shifts or when it is in neutral. Listen to your car as it shifts gears, and if you hear any odd noises, take it to a shop as soon as possible, because the gears may be grinding.
One of the most serious signs that you need transmission repair is a burning smell. When your gears have excessive friction, they produce heat, which will be a major issue if it is allowed to go on too long. You can also look at your transmission fluid and see if it looks burnt or cloudy to find out if the transmission is producing too much heat.
