4 Signs You Need Transmission Repair From Madison’s Auto Repair Shop, North Madison, Ohio

The lifespan of transmissions depends on the type of car, how you drive, and how long you’ve been driving. But, at some point or another, you will most likely need transmission repair. As your local auto repair shop, Madison Muffler and Auto, serving Lake County, OH, will help you figure out when your transmission needs to be repaired. Luckily, there are some clear signals that your transmission needs to be seen by professionals.

Here are four common signs that you need transmission repair: 

  • transmissionsTrouble Shifting Gears: Gears are important parts of transmissions. If they start acting up, such as shifting for no reason, falling out while driving, or jerking when changing, it’s a sign of transmission trouble.
  • Shaking & Grinding Noise: When there are problems with the transmission, noises are common. Manual transmissions will produce a grinding sound and automatics create a shaking sound.
  • Opaque Fluid: Normally, transmission fluid should be red. If it comes out dark or cloudy, your transmission could be having troubles running. Have your transmission fluid flushed to see if this fixes the issue.
  • Leaking Fluid: If you spot transmission fluid leaking from your car, get it checked out by a mechanic. Although leaking fluid doesn’t necessarily mean your transmission is broken, it will lead to issues if you do not take care of the leak.

With these four tips from Madison Muffler and Auto, you’ll be able to easily spot when your transmission is ready for a repair. Visit their website to check out their wide selection of auto repair services. Call (440) 428-2677 to schedule an oil change or transmission repair.
