Signs You Need Transmission Inspection and Repair

When you have an import auto, you want to keep it as finely tuned as possible. Your investment in your vehicle needs to be protected with routine maintenance and inspections. If it has been some time since your transmission has been inspected, it may be time to have it checked. Often, problems with transmissions can be avoided by early detection. There are some signs that you should definitely have your transmission inspected and possibly repaired.

Shifting Issues

Whether your car is an automatic or a manual, there are some shifting issues that may arise that point to needing a transmission inspection. If you have an automatic but it seems to be delaying in shifting up or down, this could be a sign that something is wrong with your transmission. If you have a manual transmission, hard shifts could also be a sign of trouble.

Burning Smells

If your car is automatic or manual and you smell something burning when you shift gears, this could be a sign that something is wrong with your transmission. It could be something as simple as a transmission fluid leak, but it is important to have it checked out as soon as you notice the problem. If you run out of transmission fluid, it could cause you to need an entirely new transmission rather quickly. If you notice a visible transmission fluid leak, this should also be checked out immediately.

Popping Out of Gear

Transmission issues can sometimes surface as your vehicle popping out of gear. This can happen on both manual and automatic transmissions. If your vehicle won’t stay in gear, this is a sign that something is wrong that needs to be addressed quickly.
