Leaking Transmission Fluid and Lack of Response Connected?

When it comes to trying to diagnose your car issues, it can be really hard to do for the untrained eye. If you don’t know a lot about cars, it is often best to go to a specialist. A lot of companies offer free consultations. This way you find out what is wrong and they get the opportunity to get your business. However, a lot of issues can be broken down to fluid and response.

Leaking Fluid

A transmission reuses the same fluid; it doesn’t use it up as your motor does. Therefore, if you start seeing your transmission is constantly low on fluid you most likely have a leak somewhere. It can be easy to spot a leak, just look under your car towards where your motor and transmission meet and see if there is a spot on the ground. Transmission fluid is a reddish color and smells sweet. When you run low on fluid, you can chip gears and over heat.

Lack or No Response

Your transmission is created to work like a machine. Transferring power from the motor and sending it to the axle. Sometimes where a transmission is getting worn out there becomes an issue such as lack of response, which can cause a slight loss of power. You can tell if this is happening if when you go into drive, and the motor revs to high rpm’s before taking off, then there is a response issue. Get to a repairman to see what the issue exactly is.

Often these two-run hand in hand. If you are having fluid issues, it can cause your transmission to lack response or quit altogether. A professional should handle transmission issues at all times. They require several different tools and part, making it outrageous for a normal person to handle. Contact Twin Transmission; they can assist you with all your transmission repairs and rebuild with little cost to you.
