Transmission Failure Symptoms
Whether you drive a manual or automatic vehicle, the symptoms of a transmission failure are relatively similar. One of the easiest ways to avoid needing a transmission repair is to schedule regular maintenance, but if you are experiencing these issues, it is definitely time to get into our transmission repair shop.
Clunking and humming sound
Sounds vary depending on the vehicle, but if your car is making a noise that you don’t recognize and is unusual it needs to be looked at. Manual transmission will general make more of a mechanical and louder noise than an automatic.
Unchecked fluid leaks are one of the most common contributors to a transmission breakdown. If the fluid is bright red, you may just have a leak. If the fluid is dark and smells burnt, you may need an oil change or flush.
Anytime a burning smell is coming from your vehicle it should be cause for concern, but overheating transmission fluid is the most common reason for a burning smell to be present.
Grinding and shaking
If your vehicle is making a grinding sound when you shift into gear, or shakes when it is moving it is a good possibility your transmission is going out. Automatic transmission may not make a grinding sound, but will be difficult to shift into gear.
Transmissions are designed to only shift gears when they are manually changed by the driver, so if your vehicle is slipping gears, or pops into neutral while you are driving it is time to get it checked out.
If you are experiencing any of these problems, please do not hesitate to bring your vehicle in for an inspection. Did you know that Transmission Man provides transmission repair in West Jordan UT? Call to find out more at (801) 467-6626!
