Signs of Transmission Trouble
Knowing the first signs of transmission trouble can save you money on more extensive transmission repairs. Luckily, transmission trouble is fairly easy to detect if you are paying attention.
Your transmission cannot function properly without the proper levels of clean transmission fluid. If you notice a sweet burning smell, it could be a sign of burnt transmission fluid. You should have your fluid changed immediately. If you notice a red fluid leaking from your car, that is transmission fluid. Bring your vehicle in so we can find and repair the leak.
Your transmission is meant to operate smoothly. If your vehicle is revving or jerking when it changes gears, it is a sign of trouble. Slipping, delaying, and stalling are also signs that you need to get your car to the shop as soon as possible.
