Over time, the transmission will start to show signs of wear and tear for your vehicle. If you notice anything out of the norm, make sure to contact us. By catching an issue at the first sign, you can help prevent further problems from forming. It can also help save you time, money, and stress in the long run. There are some signs to take notice of when you drive your vehicle. If the vehicle handles differently, or has an odd noise, make sure to contact us. By notifying us, we can inspect the vehicle for any issues it might have.
If you notice that your car is dripping a red fluid, it could be the fluid. Check on the ground where your car is normally parked. If you find that you have more than a few small drops, you may need a repair. If your fluid is low, you can add fluid to your car in order to protect it from damage while you drive it home.
Transmission shifting poorly
When you are driving, the shifting between gears in an automatic transmission car should operate almost silently. If you are having problems with your transmission, you may notice that there are vibrations or hesitancy when shifting as you drive. Any loud noise or sound should be a cause for concern. Also be aware with any pulling or jerking feeling you have, as this can be caused by a poor transmission.
Lack of Fluid
When your transmission doesn’t have enough fluid, you may experience it stalling at red lights or stop signs. Though it should start right back up. You may need to bring the vehicle in so we can inspect the lines for any leaking or if they need to be replaced. Though still not a small repair, getting new lines can make sure that your transmission is getting the fluid it needs to operate and can be less costly than an entirely new or rebuild.
The fluid that has come from an overheated transmission isn’t generally red. It will appear dark brown or black as a result of being exposed to high temperatures. If you find that your fluid isn’t maintaining its red color, then it is time to get your car in to be inspected.
Transmission problems can be solved with a range of solutions including adding more transmission fluid. Also replacing the transmission lines so that the fluid is circulating properly can help. Though there are multiple options, it is important to make sure that you bring your vehicle in so we can inspect it properly.
