Five Signs That Your Transmission Needs an Inspection
Your vehicle is an impressive piece of machinery, with hundreds of parts working together to get you from point A to point B, day after day. But because of that complexity, it's not always easy to know what systems are failing when warning signs start popping up. Here are five red flags to watch out for, that tell you it's time to see a transmission mechanic!
1. Fluid leaks
Unlike other vehicle fluids, transmission fluid is reddish-colored and tart-smelling, so if you see this on your garage floor, it's time to make a service appointment. Pay attention to these fluid levels too, as any drop could indicate a leak.
2. Burnt smells
If there is something wrong with your transmission, often the fluid will take on a darker hue and burnt smell, indicating that your system is working harder and at a higher temperature to keep your car running.
3. Dashboard indicator light
One of the easiest ways to tell that your car needs an inspection is if an indicator light comes on. Pay special attention to your transmission temperature light and check engine light, and make your appointment right away.
4. Movement delay
Your transmission is designed to shift gears and move your vehicle smoothly forward. If you notice a delay or slow response from your car when shifting or accelerating, it may be time to have it checked out.
5. Odd noises
For both transmission types, there are sounds to watch out for. With a manual, notice if you hear or feel an abrupt grinding while shifting, and with an automatic, pay attention for shimmying or whining as you accelerate.
