Is Your Transmission Failing?

For your transmission to maintain a high level of performance, it needs to be consistently serviced. By following a routine maintenance schedule, our technicians can track the condition of your vehicle’s transmission and understand when it needs auto care. Although you should leave repair or maintenance services to us, it’s still important for you to understand the signs of wear-and-tear or failure.

Warning Light

This will be the ideal scenario, as it is the easiest warning signal to decipher. Most modern vehicles come equipped with a variety of different warning signals, which includes the transmission temperature light. This light is triggered when the transmission fluid is above its normal temperature. This causes the transmission to operate at a higher temperature, which will lead to future problems. Although you can check the engine coolant and transmission fluid level, it’s still important you visit our shop as soon as possible.

Strange Movement

Anytime you shift gears, it should be a smooth and seamless transition. If you notice a hitch, hesitation, or lack of acceleration after you’ve shifted gears, that is a sign of transmission trouble. For manual vehicles, this is noticeable anytime you shift gears. For an automatic vehicle, you’ll notice this when you shift to “Park” or “Drive.” Don’t ignore these issues, as it is dangerous to drive with and can cause additional problems.
