Frequently Asked Questions
My transmission is acting up, Do I need a new one?
Not at all, in many cases an external problem can be repaired inexpensively and efficiently. When on the phone with
our customers, they give us feedback onwhat they are experiencing and sometimes what they tell us is indicative that the concern can be fixed without any major repairs.
I have a "Check Engine" light on. Does this mean I have a transmission problem?
Not necessarily, however a 'check engine' light may indicate a transmission problem. We can access the transmission control module (TCM) to see if any transmission codes are stored in the memory or are pending as this will indicate a transmission problem.
How to tell If my Transmission is failing?
4 MAJOR signs to look for which may indicate transmission failure and needing repair.
1. Lack of response - you may notice that when shifting into drive or park there is a delay before you feel the gear engage. This is usually an indicator of a transmission problem.
2. Hearing of Sounds - whining, clunking or humming being produced while driving are not good signs. These sounds will vary between different make and models but they are obvious warning sounds that you transmission is seeking help!
3. Leaking/Dripping or Low on Transmission Fluid is also a warning sign. (ATF) Automatic Transmission Fluid is the life-blood of a transmission. This fluid lubricates, cleans and conditions the seals, while acting as a hydraulic fluid. Low levels of fluids will cause the engine to seize up and stop working completely. Always keep an eye on your transmission fluid always!
4. Burnt Odor - over heating of transmission fluid is one of the causes of a burning smell, the causes include driving on low fluid level or using the incorrect fluid specified by the cars manufacturer for optimal performance.
