The transmission is an indispensable system within all our vehicles because of its important job; it is responsible for transferring power from the engine to the wheels. Without it, your vehicle could not possibly go anywhere! When you shift your car into drive, you are putting the transmission to work. Since it is paramount in terms of the operation of your vehicle, it's no secret that it requires maintenance to work smoothly.
Without proper care, your transmission will fail; and the symptoms of a failing transmission are very pronounced. Understanding these symptoms will help you identify them and help you address the problems sooner than later.
Here are some of the symptoms of a failing transmission:
- Buzzing sounds coming from under the hood
- Transmission gears slipping
- Burnt odor when your vehicle is running
- Check engine light lit up on your dashboard
- Rough or difficult gear shifting
- Car revs when you press on the gas pedal but accelerate or move your car (in drive gear)
As soon as you notice these warning signs, it would be best for you to take your vehicle to our shop as quickly as possible. The sooner you put it off, the more you risk your safety, and the more damage will spread throughout your transmission parts. With complete transparency, transmission repairs can be costly, so the quicker you can take care of the issue, the better.
To prevent transmission problems from happening in the first place, you need to get regular inspections of the transmission system. The system is hydraulic, which means it relies on fluid to run correctly. You may need a transmission fluid flush at least once in your lifetime to clear out all the gunk that has been collected in the solution.
At BG Automotive, our experts can take good care of your transmission by conducting regular inspections of its parts and fluid. If you require an auto service or repair, please do not hesitate to call or visit BG Automotive. You can also schedule an appointment online with us today!
