At the heart of vehicles are their engines and transmissions. They are 2 of the most crucial parts to upkeep and repair for optimal performance.

    Transmission Care

    The transmission is one of the most integral parts of your vehicle, serving as the vital connection between the engine and wheels. The transmission aligns the engine output with the speed and load components to allow you to shift between gears smoothly. When your transmission begins to falter, you are likely to quickly notice. Here are some warning signs that your transmission needs to be serviced:

      • Difficulty shifting gears with delayed engagement, especially when transitioning from park to drive
      • Falling out of gear without shifting 
      • Grinding or humming sounds, especially when in neutral
      • Burning odors

      If you drive a vehicle with a manual transmission, you should also be wary of a clutch that fails to disengage, as this is often a primary issue with a failing transmission. 

      Having your transmission fluid checked on a regular basis along with your other scheduled maintenance can help extend the life of your system and minimize the risk of needing repair and the accompanying costs.
