What You Might Notice and What You Might Choose
Is it time for transmission work? There are a few signs that likely tell you it is. For example, if you hear whining or humming–especially as your car advances through the gears–you should have us check it. Likewise, a burning odor could be emanating from the transmission. If so, it’s a good indication that the transmission fluid is burning. The fluid level might be low, could be contaminated and need changing, or even the wrong type of fluid for your model. Another tip-off is grinding as your automobile changes gears. This is a dead giveaway of an ailing transmission. If you drive a manual, difficult shifting is telling, too. You’ll definitely need to bring your vehicle in for attention if you experience slipping gears. This is apparent when your auto comes out of gear or changes gears on its own. Clearly, this can be very dangerous, particularly in traffic. Another similar issue occurs when there’s a delay between the time you press the accelerator and the moment the car actually moves. Regardless of which signs you notice, you’re certainly going to need a remedy. In many cases, you’ll find that you have a couple of options. The less expensive and time consuming repair is to fix what’s broken and clean the undamaged parts. Depending upon who you ask, this is called either a repair or a rebuild. It typically costs less than the alternative. Your vehicle will function normally, but it is possible that another part may give out soon. In short, it’s a calculated risk. The other major option is transmission replacement. This involves removing the old unit and installing another one. You’re assured that all components are new, but this choice is indeed more costly and time consuming.
