When your transmission starts to go bad there are usually some tell tale signs that are easily identifiable. Below are the most common ones:
1. An automatic transmission that slips in and out of gear while driving is a typical sign of a bad transmission. An automatic transmission has a series of gears designed for various engine speeds and loads. An automatic transmission that slips between gears is a sign of an impending transmission failure.
2. A bad or faulty automatic transmission will often spin without providing any forward vehicle movement. This happens when an automatic transmission clutch fails to properly engage the transmission gears with the engine crankshaft, resulting in a spinning or freewheeling condition.
3.A delay in transmission action or engagement when a vehicle is accelerated is transmission lag. A transmission that lags will fail to engage for a few seconds before "kicking" into gear. Transmission lag usually happens when you are accelerating from a complete stop.
Burned Transmission Fluid
4. Normal transmission fluid is pinkish in color and almost transparent. A bad automatic transmission will often burn and/or char automatic transmission fluid and turn the fluid almost black. There may actually be a burned, smoky smell to the fluid.
Severe Transmission Fluid Leaks
5. An automatic transmission that leaks a large amount of transmission fluid, whether its under normal vehicle operation or when the vehicle is parked, could be a sign of a bad automatic transmission.
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms give our Service Department a call and schedule one of our mechanics to take a look at it. 763-783-2244
