To recognize when your transmission feels a little off, look for these symptoms that commonly indicate you’re on the fast track to transmission trouble. For more information about your transmission, check out our Transmission Resources below:
Slipping Gears or Shift Delays
Probably the most direct sign that your car is experiencing transmission woes is shifting into one gear and your car going into another. Automatic transmissions should immediately engage when you transition from Park to Drive, but a transmission that’s seen better days might send out its cry for help in the form of shifting on its own time.
Does putting your gas pedal to the floor produce weary acceleration at best? Since your transmission directs engine power to your tires, power loss could be a sign that your transmission is nearly fed up.
Transmission problems are usually accompanied by a symphony of disjointed noises that can add up to be quite a racket. From a high-pitched whine to an interior clunk, if your car is experiencing transmission troubles, noises that make their debut help you quickly make the connection.
Leaky Fluid or Burnt Smell
Without sufficient fluid to lubricate and cool your transmission’s interior moving parts, a transmission fluid leak has the potential to be quite dangerous if left unnoticed. If you find a bright red fluid left behind in your parking spot, it’s likely that your transmission has a leak that needs patching up.
Transmission issues may also arrive in the form of a burning odor accompanied by a dark liquid leak indicating overheating of the system that requires prompt attention by a car care specialist.
