Common Symptoms of Transmission Problems

Car trouble is something that nobody wants to have to deal with. Whether you find yourself stranded or a warning light appears on your dashboard, we understand the stress that comes along with getting your vehicle diagnosed and repaired. Did you know that poor vehicle maintenance is a top cause of car issues? The better you maintain your vehicle, the less money you'll spend on repairs over time. 

The transmission is an important vehicle component, because it is the system that helps to transfer power from the engine to the wheels. The transmission runs on many different parts and fluid, and many different issues can arise if your transmission isn't well serviced. 

So, how do you know if your transmission might need to be repaired? Here are some of the symptoms that can indicate transmission problems: 

  • Car won't move when placed into gear
  • Grinding noise when shifting
  • Clunking or whining noises coming from underneath the hood
  • Burning smell coming from underneath the hood
  • Check engine light has turned on

Any of these symptoms are an indication of a transmission issue and should be taken care of as soon as possible. Ignoring the problem can make matters worse and put your safety at risk on the road.
