Chevy Transmission Repair in Charlotte NC
The transmission in your Chevy (GMC) should last for at least 60,000 miles. However, if your vehicle was abused (driven harshly) or the transmission fluid levels were not kept at proper levels, then you may end up with a transmission that fails prematurely. This is true whether your Chevy (GMC) has a manual or automatic transmission. There are many warning signs that your Chevy (GMC) transmission is going to fail or is in need of a transmission rebuild.
Chevy Transmission Problems and Symptoms
Shifting / Jerking
Most Chevy transmission problems are centered on hard shifting or surging issues after stopping. The Chevy’s automatic transmission may have problems shifting from first to second gear with a hard jerking.
Transmission Fluid Leaks
Always check the transmission fluid level in your Chevy. Another common complaint is transmission fluid leaks. Transmission fluid is a special type of oil made for lubricating the gears in the transmission. The oil will be red in color for GMC vehicles.
When you check the transmission fluid, the transmission oil level should be between the upper and lower marks on the dipstick. If it is not, you will need to have the transmission filled with the transmission fluid. (You can call us at 704-821-3460 to schedule this service)
Another sign of a transmission problem in your Chevy is a grinding sound when you shift gears. This problem indicates that the synchronizers or gear teeth are damaged and serious transmission servicing is needed. Some Chevy transmissions may have difficulty getting out of third gear and may be caused by a faulty shift solenoid.
According to Consumer Affairs, most Chevy transmission problems involve a loud noise, either during driving or only during shifting. Sometimes this is accompanied by a jolt as the automatic transmission shifts. Many transmission problems also lead to decreased fuel economy.
While these symptoms are little more than an inconvenience, other transmission problems, such as fluid leaks or problems related to the electronic control unit, can lead to a stalled engine, which may put drivers at risk of crashing.
