The transmission is part of your engine that shifts gears and provides power to the wheels.
There are a few different kinds, including:
The manual transmission used to be all the rage. With a manual transmission, you have a clutch pedal and shifter to change gears as you drive. These are available in older vehicles and sportier models.
These days, most vehicles are automatic transmissions. There’s no clutch, and the gear shifts happen automatically, relying on torque.
Similar to automatic transmissions is the CVT. It’s typically used in smaller vehicles with smaller engines and is popular with hybrid cars.
There are a few signs you can look out for that’ll let you know your transmission might need a repair. If you spot any of these signs, take your vehicle into our service center to get it looked at!
Several signs are more about noise than sight. If you hear strange sounds like clunking, humming, or whining, that can signify automatic transmission problems. Clunking noises might indicate an issue with a manual transmission. If your engine sounds louder than usual, that can also indicate a problem.
Have you ever seen a puddle of fluid in a parking spot? That might be a leak from a transmission. Transmission leaks often leave behind fluid that’s red and sweet-smelling.
One key sign that tells you that you should get your vehicle checked out is the check engine light. The check engine light has quite a few possibilities behind it, but one of them is your transmission. When this light comes on, head to your service center as soon as possible.
