What’s the best way to maintain the quality performance of your vehicle’s transmission system? Many people would say to have it regularly serviced and to practice good driving habits. But another thing that may help in maintaining the transmission system’s performance is to understand when it begins to suffers from wear-and-tear or failure. This allows you to jump ahead of any minor issues before they become major problems, which will help maintain its performance and keep money in your wallet. Here are a couple warning signs that you need to look out for.
Unlike motor oil, which is consumed by your vehicle and needs to be refilled, transmission fluid is never burned up or consumed. If you get an indicator that the fluid level is low, that’s a sure sign that your vehicle is leaking transmission fluid. You may also notice a bright red, sweet-smelling fluid beneath your vehicle if there’s a leak. There are a variety of causes for leaking transmission fluid, ranging from worn gaskets to damaged housings, so you’ll need professional service to properly identify the cause and fix it.
When you transition gears, it should be a quick and seamless shift. If you notice your vehicle is having a delayed response to your action or if it doesn’t latch on to the proper gear, you’re dealing with transmission issues. Like most problems with the transmission, there are a variety of causes for this issue and you’ll need professional assistance to help pinpoint it. This is not only frustrating to deal with, but it is dangerous as well, so we recommend scheduling service at your earliest opportunity.
