Your transmission transfers the power from the engine to your wheels. To put it more simply, it shifts gears for you as you drive. When you press the gas pedal, but the car doesn’t accelerate correctly, you have a slipping transmission.
Proper transmission maintenance is often forgotten in Concord. Many different issues can cause a slipping transmission. The ASE-certified technicians at Christian Brothers Automotive Concord have some insight into how you can diagnose your transmission problems.
Check the transmission fluid pressure
Another possible cause of a slipping transmission is low fluid pressure. The fluid cools and lubricates the components so they can work in harmony. Low fluid levels will cause the transmission to not fully engage. Some vehicles don’t have a dipstick at the engine bay to check the fluid. If your car or truck doesn’t have the dipstick, it’s best to let a professional take a look under your car.
Fixing a slipping transmission
The first step is diagnosing the transmission problem, and then you have to fix it. You shouldn’t have to worry about issues if the transmission is maintained according to your owner’s manual. At our North Carolina auto repair center, we suggest a full transmission flush to replace all of the old fluid throughout the entire transmission system. The typical drain and refill services only replaces the fluid left in the pan.
