Common Transmission Problems

There are a number of issues your transmission may encounter over the lifetime of your vehicle, but how do you know it’s your transmission that’s going out and not one of the other components under the hood? Here are a few signs you should be aware of that indicate something is wrong with your transmission system.

  • Gear shift without prompting
  • Gears don’t shift at all
  • Burning smell
  • Car won’t move
  • Clunking, buzzing or humming sounds
  • Leak
  • Dirty or low transmissions
  • Check engine light is on

When your car displays any of these symptoms, call Team Automotive immediately. Waiting can endanger the health of the rest of your transmission system, your engine and even more components under the hood. Hesitating or driving a car that is already displaying troubling signs can lead to breaks, fluid leaks and more costly fixes. Call Team Automotive and trust our mechanics to investigate your transmission issues and give you a specific diagnosis.
