Transmissions play a crucial role in how your car operates. They essentially carry the engine’s power to the drive axle by using various gears, making it possible for the vehicle to run at varying speeds. Just a single mechanical failure in the transmission can cause an engine to shut down completely, so it’s important to address the issue quickly to prevent the need for expensive repairs or replacement. Some signs your car might need transmission repair include:
- Unusual sounds like humming, grinding, or clunking, especially when the car is in neutral
- The clutch stays engaged when you try to shift, causing a grinding noise
- You feel and hear a thump or grinding when the gear changes
- The transmission pops back into neutral or slips between gears while driving
- A lag between gear changes and higher than normal RPMs for the gear change or speed
Even if you’re not having issues right now, it’s important to keep up with your transmission service to keep it well-maintained. All transmissions should have a fluid and filter change on a regular schedule to prevent sludge and debris from accumulating. While the factory recommendations vary from vehicle to vehicle, a transmission flush should typically be done about every 30,000 miles. Check your owner’s manual to see the recommendations for your specific make or give our friendly service advisors a call.
