Here is some information you should know:
With the technological advances being made in the automotive industry, the days of simple transmission repairs may be gone forever.
As recently as a decade ago, a transmission specialist may have only needed to work on 10 different models of transmissions. These models were the mainstream and were easily stocked. Whenever parts were needed, they were accessible and relatively inexpensive.
Today, a transmission specialist must keep up with as many as 350 models. The cost of maintaining transmission systems has risen due to the availability of parts and the fact that some parts have to be purchased from the dealer. This increased variety, along with the growing complexity of transmission technology, means that transmission specialists must have more advanced training and continuous education.
The transmission system is usually ignored until there is a major problem. Many people who notice their car is not running properly ignore the problem with the hope that the symptoms will work themselves out. This could result in more extensive damage to your vehicle as the problem becomes more severe.
The following symptoms may indicate a problem with your transmission:
- Failing or delaying when shifting
- Thumping or lagging when shifting
- The engine speeds up when you apply the gas but the car doesn't
- Red, pink, or brown puddles under your car
- The need to add transmission fluid
- Unusual noises such as whining sounds when you step on the accelerator
- Grinding noises
- Banging noise when you come to a stop
- Your car fails to move when cold but improves once it is warmed up
- The engine overheats
