You might not understand exactly what it is your transmission does, but that’s ok! What you do need to be able to determine if you are experiencing any changes in vehicle performance. Your transmission is responsible for shifting the gears in manual and automatic vehicles. This ensures you are heading in the correct direction with the horsepower required for the terrain you are navigating—such as a steep hill. Signs that you may be in need of a transmission repair include difficulty shifting gears, a jammed clutch, or grinding or shaking when you shift gears. In newer vehicles a transmission check light may come on to alert you to a repair need. Leaking fluid under your vehicle or a burning smell could also be a sign of a transmission repair need but could also be a few other repair issues. Either way, any of these signs mean you should pop into our Auto Stop Falls Church ASAP!
