Common Signs of Transmission Problems

Your transmission is the most complex system in your vehicle. It is made of hundreds of parts that work together to transfer engine power to move your wheels, which allows you to drive your vehicle. When one of these parts stops doing what they are supposed to do, your car will no longer be safe to drive. There’s a chance that it won’t drive at all. 

So, how can you tell that your transmission is in trouble?  Here are the most common warning signs of transmission problems:

  • Unusual or burning smells
  • Red fluid leaks under the vehicle
  • Difficulty shifting gears
  • Problem staying in gear
  • Grinding or hissing noises 
  • Check engine light illuminates on the dashboard
