Signs of a Transmission Problem

The earliest sign of transmission trouble is usually a slipping of gears when it feels like it has shifted into another gear without reason. You may also notice clunking sounds or rough shifting. These are signs something is going wrong and if you catch the problem early enough, it can be fixed without having to replace the whole transmission.

Delayed starting is another symptom, as well as leaks, and warning lights. Often the reverse will go out first. Don't wait until your car will not go at all before you contact us. Transmissions do not normally go out suddenly. Bring your car in when symptoms start.

What to do if Your Transmission Goes Bad

If your transmission goes bad there are some things you can do, such as:

  • Buy a new one. This is the most expensive option and is good for new cars or ones of high value.
  • Buy a rebuilt transmission. This can be a good alternative at a lower cost. The downside is you do not always get a warranty.
  • Buy a used transmission. This is the cheapest alternative, but also the one with the most risk. There may be other problems you do not know about and often there is no warranty.
  • Rebuilding the one you have. This is a good alternative for a car with a few years of wear on it. The transmission is taken apart and worn parts are replaced. It is almost like getting a new one.
