Signs of Transmission Trouble

Signs of Transmission Trouble

Transmission problems can take several forms. Each symptom may have a number of possible causes, some requiring extensive repairs while others need only an adjustment or minor service. A systematic checkup by a professional is the best way to isolate the cause of the operating problems and recommend the most effective solution.

Do You Have Any of These Symptoms


Engine Light On – Is your dashboard light prompting you to “Check Engine” or “Service Engine Soon”?

Strange Noises – Your car makes clicking, knocking, screeching, buzzing, whistling, clanking, or grating noises. Unusual sounds can come from hood or rear of car and may include a hum or low whine.

“Morning Sickness” – When the vehicle is cold, is your car unable to move or does it shift late during the first few minutes of operation?

Slipping - Is your engine racing but your vehicle moves slowly or won’t accelerate as it should?

Stalling – Vehicle stalls or is slow to accelerate.

Doesn’t Go – Do you place the shift lever in ‘Drive’ and nothing happens? Does even racing the engine not work?

No Reverse – Does your vehicle not move when shift lever is placed in Reverse?

Leaks – Are their fresh fluid stains under the vehicle?

Loss of Power – Passing Will the gear not engage? Is there no surge of power when you press the pedal to the floor?

Erratic or Improper Shifting

Shift Handle Stuck/Sticks – Shift handle is hard to move into or out of any position.

Vehicle Moves (or Jerks) in Park or Neutral

Strange Smell – Burnt or rancid odor is coming from under the hood or underneath vehicle.

Shift Indicator Off – The indicator must be slightly off (P) or (N) to start the car. Shift indicator doesn’t point to the proper range.

Metal Shavings or Debris – Inspection or transmission service reveals excessive amounts of debris in the transmission pan.
