What Does a Transmission Do?

Car TransmissionThe role of your car’s transmission is to deliver the right amount of power that is produced by the engine to the wheels of the vehicle. It chooses how much power to send to the wheels based on how fast you want to go. It also shifts between gears, similar to a bicycle, which allows the car to get up to the speed you want while also maximizing its efficiency and reducing the fuel consumption of the vehicle.

Since your vehicle’s transmission is vital to your car’s performance, it is important to make sure you regularly have your transmission inspected and repaired when there is an issue that arises.

When Do You Need Transmission Repair?

There are several ways to determine when a transmission repair is needed, like:

  • Problem shifting gears: If there’s a hesitation when putting the car into gear, or it falls out of gear when driving, then there’s an issue with the transmission.
  • Unusual noises: Your transmission is usually in trouble when you hear whining, buzzing, or clunking noises. If your car is particularly noisy when in neutral, then the transmission needs to be looked at soon.
  • Cloudy and burnt transmission fluid: Transmission fluid is usually bright red with a slightly sweet scent. If the fluid turns dark and opaque and smells burnt, it means it’s getting old and causing the transmission to overheat.
  • Low fluid level: The transmission doesn’t consume or burn up fluid during use. So, if the fluid is running low, then it’s almost always because of a leak. If you see bright red fluid under the car, then you’ll need to get it checked out as soon as possible.
  • Warning light appears: When a warning light appears on the dashboard, there could be an issue with the transmission or some other part of the car. So, you’ll want to have it looked at by a professional sooner rather than later.

If your automobile experiences any of the above warnings, then bring it to a reliable service center as soon as you can.

Routine Maintenance for Your Transmission

Beyond repairs, we can also service your transmission for its recommended routine maintenance. Your transmission has many moving parts that are constantly moving among one another. Since these metal parts are constantly working hard, you want to make sure they are properly lubricated. This is where transmission fluid comes in.

Transmission fluid will keep all the parts nicely lubricated so all the components of the transmission can continue to move freely and not damage one another. These fast-moving parts also create a lot of heat. This fluid also acts as a coolant and is able to dissipate that heat so your transmission doesn’t become overheated and damaged.

Eventually, you will want to have your transmission fluid changed so it continues to perform its job well. Once the fluid becomes too dirty and worn out, you can schedule to have it flushed by our expert technicians.

It is recommended to have your transmission fluid replaced every 30,000 miles, but this can vary depending on your driving habits and the specific model you drive. You can refer to your owner’s manual for when the manufacturer recommends having the transmission fluid flushed or have our trained technicians inspect and see if it is time to replace the fluid.
