3 Urgent Transmission Problems You Should Never Ignore, Fort Worth, Texas

Your transmission plays an essential role in helping you get where you need to go. As such, some transmission problems can lead to breakdowns, potentially leaving you stranded away from home. But which performance issues indicate you need immediate repair work? The following factors are key signs that you should take your car to a professional mechanic as soon as possible.

Top 3 Transmission Problems That Need Service Immediately

1. Grinding & Shaking

Shifting gears should be a relatively smooth and seamless process, whether you’re driving an automatic or manual vehicle. If a grinding sound occurs in a manual vehicle, there is likely a serious issue with the gears, and the clutch itself might need to be replaced. In an automatic vehicle, you will experience jarring shakes as it shifts gears.

2. Delayed Response

3. Gear Slips

A truck that slips out of gear is a safety hazard to everyone on the road. In a manual vehicle, this occurs when the vehicle changes gears without any input on your part. In an automatic vehicle, this problem is most often seen when a car unexpectedly slides into neutral. We offer used transmissions to those who are on a budget and just need to fix the problem and get back on the road. These come with a 90 day warranty.
