Signs you may have a Transmission Problem

Have you noticed any strange noises or has your car behaving differently recently? Noises and patterns can indicate you may have a transmission problem. If your car’s transmission is showing issues, you need to take action quickly. Repairing your transmission is important in keeping your car in good condition and keeping you safe.

If you’re not sure if your transmission has problems, check the common signs of transmission problems listed below:.

Don’t Ignore the Signs 
1. If you have a manual transmission and notice the transmission refuses to move into gear. If you can’t transition into first gear from a stop, or you can’t move between gears, you may have a transmission problem. The experts at AAMCO Lee’s Summit uses the latest technology to diagnose transmission issues and solve them, whether large or small repairs are needed.

2. Stong smells coming from your car are hard to ignore. If you notice a burning smell, your transmission could be the reason why this is happening. Since the transmission fluid keeps the moving parts lubricated, it also prevents them from overheating and burning up. An overheated transmission is a problem ready to happen.

3. Leaks are a sure sign that something is not right. Several of your vehicle’s parts can leak though, so it’s best to have someone who works with transmissions every day take a look to be sure of where the leak is coming from. AAMCO Lee’s Summit techs can determine if there is a transmission problem and can make any repairs needed quickly.

4. A lit dashboard warning light could mean any number of issues, but your transmission might be a part of the problem if you notice other symptoms in combination with a lit “check engine” light. Ignoring dashboard warning lights is a risky choice. Have your car diagnosed by one of AAMCO’s expert techs.

If you are experiencing any transmission issues with your vehicle or just want to be sure you are safe on the road, Call AAMCO Lee’s Summit today for a quick and easy appointment.
