Signs your transmission needs attention

Your transmission gives subtle – and not so subtle – signs that it needs the attention of a skilled service technician. Some of the symptoms of a failing transmission include:

A burning smell can mean your transmission is overheating and should never be ignored.

A dragging clutch happens when the clutch disk fails to disengage from the flywheel when you’re shifting gears.

A difficulty or refusal to shift gears happens when the transmission struggles to operate normally. Sometimes you can even experience slipping between gears, which can be scary while driving.

A transmission fluid leak is another indicator your vehicle needs servicing. Transmission fluid is red and sweet-smelling and can pool under your parked car.

Any unusual sounds – clunking, grinding, humming, whining – can signal your transmission can’t switch gears smoothly.

Clutches and differential repairs

If you’re experiencing issues with your clutch, the problem might not be coming from the clutch itself. Several other factors can affect the operation of a clutch, including pilot bushings and pressure plates.

Our team can inspect your domestic or foreign manual-shift vehicle to accurately diagnose the failing component. We always provide a free estimate for the repair and get you back on the road safely and as quickly as possible.

Transmission service and repairs

The only thing some vehicle owners dread more than engine repair is transmission repair because they fear the expense. One of the most effective ways to avoid transmission repair or replacement is to bring your vehicle to Rio Grande Auto for all your transmission maintenance needs.

Automobile manufacturers recommend flushing your transmission fluid every 3 years or 30,000 miles, whichever comes first. Give us a call to schedule your routine maintenance.

If you find yourself in the unfortunate position of needing transmission repairs, we can help. Our skilled technicians can inspect your transmission and recommend whether a repair or replacement (remanufactured) is the best solution.
