Transmission maintenance


The transmission is your vehicle’s most complex system, which means it also can be the most difficult and costly to fix. As with most other types of car problems, the sooner you have your transmission symptoms diagnosed and repaired, the better the chances you can limit any damage and the cost of repairing it.

Know the signs of transmission trouble

Your transmission is made up of hundreds of components, which is why transmission trouble shows up in many different ways. If you see fluid leaking from your car, detect a burning smell under the hood, hear a clunking sound during shifting or notice difficulty shifting gears, it’s time to bring your car in.
