Transmission Warning Signs and What How to Avoid Them
Being such a complex component many things can go wrong. Some of the more common signals are a burnt smell, discoloration of fluid, and loss of fluid. Regularly checking your transmission fluid is important and can help you catch a problem before it gets bad. Transmission fluid should be red and smell sweet.
There are warning signs that can be felt while driving. If you are not getting enough power, rough or late shifting, or your gears are slipping you more than likely have a problem with your transmission. Another when driving is if you feel a shimmy when changing gears rather than a smooth shift you need to have your vehicle inspected.
Automatic and Manual transmissions react differently when malfunctioning. Listening to your vehicle and how it sounds when running, stopped, and while shifting can help you diagnose problems. If you are able to catch these signs early, you can avoid costly repairs and untimely breakdowns. Concerning an automatic vehicle, you may hear a whine, buzz, or humming noise that it a signal that a repair may be necessary. In Regards to a manual, if you hear grinding when shifting or after fully engaging the clutch; you may have worn out your clutch or you an adjustment is required. If you are having any of the above problems, we suggest you have you transmission inspected immediately to avoid further damage.
