Identifying Your Transmission Problems

grisham

Let’s face it: car problems are incredibly frustrating, especially if your knowledge of cars is limited. One of the most complex parts of your car is the transmission. It controls the power from your driveshaft to the engine.  Since there are so many moving parts and components to the transmission, you will tend to find that the transmission is the most susceptible to damage. Here are some common problems that you may be having with your transmission and the steps to identifying them.

One of the potential issues your transmission may be having is lack of response. If your car sometimes hesitates and is difficult when trying to change gears, you may be experiencing this issue. Your vehicle should instantly shift gears without a problem. This problem is usually caused by unresponsiveness of your clutch and it may need to be properly replaced.

Sometimes your car may make a very peculiar noise that you haven’t heard it make before. Depending on the make and model of your car, your noise might be a distinct humming, whining, or clunking. This is most likely a problem with your transmission. If you have a mechanical transmission, be aware that the sound it makes may be more like a mechanical lag as opposed to a whining sound. Be aware that it’s better to diagnose this sort of problem sooner than later, as the cost of repairs might increase depending on how damaged the transmission is.

The easiest problem to recognize with your transmission is a leak or low fluid issue. Leaking is also one of the most common causes of transmission failure. While recognizing this issue is fairly simple, it is also incredibly important. If you continue to let your fluid go to waste, the engine will eventually fail to work entirely. Your leaker fluid should be a bright, reddish color. Fixing the hole is the one of the fixes, but if the fluid you find is a darkish color or has a burnt smell, it is probably better to change the fluid all together.

If it begins to smell like your car is burning, your transmission fluid may be overheating. If the fluid begins to break down, the system runs too hot and will eventually break down the transmission and require a very expensive repair. Make sure that you’re using the correct brand of fluid for your transmission because this can be an easy fix for a burning transmission fluid issue.

Fixing a transmission problem can be as simple as checking your engine light. There are sensors in your car that recognize when there is an issue with not just your transmission but other parts of your car. If your car is having an issue and you can’t seem to find the simple fix, call Grisham’s Transmission Center.
