Understanding YourTransmission

The transmission is a vital link between your engine and wheels, utilizing a complex system of gears and sensors. This system ensures that the engine's energy is smoothly transferred to the tires, enhancing control and safety for the driver. However, this process generates significant heat, which can potentially damage the transmission. Transmission fluid plays a crucial role in regulating this heat. Over time, however, this fluid can become less effective, putting your transmission at risk. Regular maintenance and fluid checks are essential to keep your transmission operating smoothly.

Common signs of transmission issues:

  • Unusual Noises: You may hear humming, clunking, or whining noises, especially when shifting gears. These noises can indicate worn-out gears or low transmission fluid.
  • Difficulty in Shifting Gears: If you experience difficulty in shifting gears, such as gears slipping or grinding when you try to shift, it could be a sign of transmission trouble.
  • Slipping Gears: Your vehicle may slip out of gear while driving, which can be dangerous. This can happen due to low transmission fluid, worn-out gears, or a faulty clutch.
  • Delayed Engagement When Shifting: When you shift gears, the transmission's response may be delayed or take longer than usual to engage. This could indicate a problem with the transmission fluid or internal components.
  • Transmission Fluid Leaks: If you notice red or brown fluid leaking under your car, it could be due to a transmission fluid leak. Low transmission fluid can lead to overheating and damage to the transmission.
  • Check Engine Light is On: The check engine light can illuminate for various reasons, including transmission issues. If the light is on, it's essential to have your vehicle checked by a professional technician.
  • Burning Smell: A burning smell, especially when driving, can indicate overheating transmission fluid. This can indicate low fluid levels or excessive friction within the transmission.

FAQs

  • Q. "What factors determine the price of transmission repair?"
    Many different factors go into determining costs of transmission repair. The major factor is what type of vehicle you drive. The year, make and model of the car, determine how much parts and labor will cost. Another factor is how much damage the transmission has sustained. Your transmission should last a minimum of 100,000 miles by servicing your transmission on a regular basis.
  • Q. "What does automatic transmission service include?"
    Fluid is first drained from the pan during an automatic transmission service. A new transmission filter is installed with a new pan gasket once the pan has been removed. Finally, fresh automatic transmission fluid (ATF) is used to refill the vehicle.
  • Q. "Is there a difference between a transmission fluid change and flush?"
    During a transmission fluid and filter change, it’s only the fluid in the pan that is drained and replaced with new ATF. Four to five quarts of fluid will typically be replaced in this process, while nine to thirteen quarts are replaced during a full transmission fluid flush. The difference in amounts is because the complete flush drains the entire system.
