Your transmission should be serviced at the intervals recommended by your manufacturer’s owner manual. But keep in mind these recommendations are for normal driving conditions. If you use your vehicle for hauling or you drive in stop-and-go traffic or for short distances, your transmission may need more frequent attention.
Signs You May Need Transmission Repairs
As your transmission and drivetrain are critical to the proper function of your vehicle, it’s important you take action at the first sign of a problem. Here are some common indicators that your vehicle’s transmission may need service:
For manual transmissions, a grinding noise after engaging the clutch may indicate a worn clutch. With automatic transmissions, whining, buzzing and humming sounds may indicate that your transmission requires repairs.
Slipping or delay in movement
A lack of response or a delay from your vehicle’s transmission could signify a serious issue with your transmission. If you notice slipping or a lack of response in your transmission, we recommend you bring your vehicle to our facility right away.
Transmission fluid normally has a tart, slightly sweet odour. If your transmission fluid smells burnt, it could mean that the transmission is burning during operation and can lead to costly transmission rebuilds. If you notice your transmission fluid has an off smell, bring your vehicle to our facility right away.
If you have noticed one of the indicators above or you just need regular transmission service, contact our Burnaby shop today! Being proactive about your vehicle, will extend its life and save you money in the long run.
