Warning Signs that You Need A New Transmission

Unfortunately, transmission failures occur without notice, but that does not mean issues come without showing signs of depreciation. Keep an eye out for these warning signs to determine if you need a new transmission

  • Refusal to Switch Gears – Low transmission or the wrong fluid or is oftentimes to blame in this situation
  • Burning Smell – Often indicates overheating or old transmission fluid
  • Neutral Noises – Noises coming from your vehicle when your car is in neutral is a sure sign of transmission trouble.
  • Slipping Gears – This scenario is dangerous while you’re on the road. If your gears slip, make sure to let our auto repair mechanic take a look.
  • Dragging Clutch – A dragging clutch fails to disengage the clutch disk from the flywheel in your vehicle when you press the clutch pedal.
  • Leaking Fluid- Easiest transmission problems to identify. The leaking fluid is usually red or brown.
  • Check Engine Light – Never ignore this light. While it could be minor, have our technicians diagnose the problem.
  • Grinding or Shaking – Common with automatic car transmissions.
  • Unresponsive – If your vehicle does not respond when you attempt to change gears-especially from park to drive-it’s most likely caused by a problem with your transmission

How Often Should I Replace My Vehicle’s Transmission Fluid?

Generally speaking, you will need to replace the transmission fluid in your vehicle every 48,000 to 97,000 kilometers. If you tow or do mostly city driving with the constant gear change, it may be wise to change your transmission fluid even more often.

After the first transmission fluid change, we recommend routine replacement every two to three years or 40,000 to 48,000 kilometers.
