Transmission Issues You Should Never Ignore

A lot of people believe that having an automatic transmission means fewer problems than a manual. However, both if treated right can last the lifetime of the vehicle. But, either can end up messing up. Either with extreme wear or just by some fluke. Below you can find a few transmission issues that shouldn’t be ignored.

Pesky Lights

Nothing is more annoying than a check engine light constantly flashing and beeping at you no matter how often you check the engine. But, did you know that just because it says to check “engine” doesn’t mean it is actually a motor issue? Check engine lights can come on for a number of things. Therefore, if you can’t find the issues get to someone who can run a scan to see if it is a transmission issue.

Rough Shifting

Your vehicle should always shift smoothly into the next gear, you should never feel it drastically. If you find your transmission is starting to feel rough such as jumping, shaking, or grinding it needs to be seen by a transmission repair specialist as soon as possible. Sometimes these shifts can also be heard with a clunk or thud.

Leaks and Puddles

Your transmission is a sealed unit. Therefore, any leaks in a bad thing. Your transmission should never start leaking if it does take it to a repairman to get the leak sealed. If your transmission is leaking it can cause hundreds of dollars in costly repairs or the need for a transmission rebuild. This being said, it is important to seek help as soon as you notice the issue.
