Here are 5 transmission problems to keep an eye out for:
- Slipping Transmission
If your engine suddenly changes gears without you speeding up or slowing down, it can be indicative of a problem with the transmission. A sudden change of gears can force your engine to work much harder to maintain speed or avoid stalling. This can make it difficult for you car to make it up steep hills or accelerate properly.
2. Rough Shifting
Shifting between gears should be very smooth, especially in automatic vehicles. If your car is having trouble gearing up and down, or the transition is clunky, it’s a good idea to have the transmission checked. Take note of how long it takes you to get up to speed after a green light and try listening for a thudding noise when changing gears.
3. Delayed Engagement
One symptom of transmission trouble is lag. If the engine doesn’t immediately engage when you shift out of park and into drive, that can be an early sign of a problem with your transmission. The car should begin moving forward as soon as you put it in gear. If there is a delay, call the experts at Burnaby Transmission.
4. Fluid Leak
If you notice red or brown stains on the ground in your parking space or driveway, it may mean your transmission is leaking. A good way to make sure is by laying cardboard down underneath your car to determine whether or not it’s an active leak. If red or brown fluid shows up on the cardboard, it’s time to pay a visit to Burnaby Transmission.
5. Transmission Warning Light
If the check-engine light on your dashboard comes on, it doesn’t necessarily mean there’s a problem with your transmission. However, it does mean the car’s computer has noticed a problem somewhere or is generating an error code. If you notice any of the above problems at the same time the warning light comes on, it’s a good idea to get it checked out by a professional.
