When we hear or feel our car acting funny, we automatically hope it’s not the transmission. Sadly, many times it’s just that. When your transmission goes out, replacing it can be incredibly expensive. Therefore it’s a good idea to keep it regularly maintained and have it checked and repaired at the first sign of problems.
The most common sign of transmission trouble is slipping gears. You may notice this when taking off from a stop, when accelerating in traffic, or when slowing down. Your car may feel like it’s trying to catch up to itself or your engine may rev up to dangerous RPM levels. This is more often than not a transmission fluid problem, and servicing will typically fix the problem.
If your vehicle bucks when you take off or accelerate, you may very well have a transmission problem. This is usually caused by worn out mechanisms within the unit and should be repaired as soon as possible to avoid further damage.
Leaking and a Burning Smell
If you have sprung a leak underneath your car that has a funny burnt smell, it’s probably your transmission. Your fluid keeps the gears and mechanical parts well-lubricated, so when the fluid leaks out, there could be serious repercussions for your vehicle. Leaks should be diagnosed and repaired quickly.
