Signs of transmission problems

Your car should be a smooth-running machine, but if you've been feeling some bumps, grinds, or strange sensations lately, it might be your transmission trying to tell you something.

Here's a list of warning signs to watch out for:

  • Shifting Struggles: A transmission that hesitates, slips, or grinds when changing gears is a red flag. It could indicate worn-out clutch plates, low fluid levels, or internal component damage.
  • The Jitters: Unwanted shudders, jerks, or vibrations during acceleration can point to transmission problems.
  • Sounds Like Trouble: Unusual noises coming from your transmission, like whining, clunking, or grinding, are cause for concern.
  • Stuck in Limbo: If your car gets stuck in a particular gear and refuses to shift, it's a serious issue that needs immediate attention.
  • Burning Odor: A burning smell emanating from your car can be a sign of overheating transmission fluid.
  • The Leakening Machine: Transmission fluid leaks are a telltale sign of trouble.
  • Check Engine Light On: Don't ignore the dashboard! The check engine light can sometimes indicate transmission problems.

If you notice any of these signs, schedule an appointment with our Sun Prairie mechanics as soon as possible. Early detection and repair can save you money and prevent a complete breakdown.

Importance of Regular Maintenance

Regular transmission service is like giving your car a massage with benefits. It keeps everything lubricated and running smoothly, preventing premature wear and tear on the internal components. This translates to smoother gear changes, improved fuel efficiency, and ultimately, a longer lifespan for your transmission.

Just like you wouldn't wait for your engine to seize before getting an oil change, staying ahead of the game with transmission service is key to avoiding costly repairs and keeping your car on the road for years to come.

  • 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.
  • Q. "Do you offer a shuttle service?"
    Yes! we understand you have a full schedule. Whether you need to get to work, school, or need to attend to other responsibilities, we can take you where you need to go. Click here to learn more.
