Key Signs That You Need Transmission Repair
According to Kelley Blue Book, the average cost of a new transmission is $2,900 to $7,100. To avoid paying such hefty sums, one must know the signs indicating that a transmission repair is required. This video shares tips on how to do that.
The first key sign is a burning smell which could mean that the transmission is overheating or the transmission fluid is burning. The second is a slipping transmission which may cause delayed acceleration, rough gear changes, or high RPMs at normal speed.
The third sign of a faulty transmission is fluid leakage beneath the car. Transmission fluid is red and has a sweet smell, so it should be fairly easy to tell if it pools underneath the vehicle. Number four is vibrations, grinding, and shakes while changing gear. Drivers should also watch out for strange noises while in neutral gear. All these signs require the attention of a mechanic as soon as possible. Quick action can mean the difference between a transmission repair and a transmission replacement.
