While the snow is a thing of last season, it’s still important to make sure that your transmission is in optimal shape.

If your vehicle is in need of a bit of tuning, we offer transmission repairs.
A person’s vehicle is their trusty friend, but sometimes everyone requires a little tune-up. Between checkups, here are some signs to watch out for that might indicate transmission problems:
Slipping Transmission. An automatic transmission should engage firmly and smoothly. If your transmission hesitates, or flares and slips while driving, it’s often an indicator of a slipping transmission. One reason why this occurs is due to a low fluid level.
Fluid Leak. If you notice stains on the ground where you park your car, it could be an indication that your transmission is leaking. This means it is time for a checkup.
Rough Shifting. If you’re noticing that transition between shifts is rough or hard, it is an indication of a faulty or failing transmission. Fluid levels may be low, or it may be leaking. Hard shifting often can lead to further damage to the transmission.
