1. Strange noises

Any odd sounds, especially a “clunking” or banging noise, should be dealt with immediately.

2. Shudders/vibrations

If your vehicle is shaking, shuddering or otherwise moving in an unfamiliar way, your drivetrain could be damaged.

3. Slipping transmission

Many Helotes drivers are unaware their transmission has anything to do with the drivetrain.

4. Fluid leaks

Any fluid leak is a bad sign, but red fluid leaking could be an indication of a drivetrain or transmission problem.

5. Strange smells

If you’ve noticed an odd smell while your car runs, there could be a hidden fluid leak.

Your drivetrain is connected to the gearshift. Call to schedule a drivetrain inspection if you notice any shifting problems.
