Automatic Transmission Problems and Solutions

From long commutes, traveling, errands, and adventures, your vehicle can sometimes become your second home. The last thing you want to deal with is a car issue that can’t be solved with a quick fuel fill-up or oil change. Automatic transmission problems are complicated and require specialized training to diagnose and solve. They can arise quickly, leave you frustrated, or worse, stranded on the side of the road. Learn more about common issues and how to diagnose transmission problems by their symptoms.

Low or Dirty Fluid

Exploring automatic transmission problems and solutions - Diagnosing Transmission ProblemsJust like your oil requires regular changes, your transmission fluid also requires maintenance to keep your vehicle in proper working condition. Complete vehicle failure can occur when your transmission fluid is not kept at an adequate level and cleanliness. Low or dirty fluid can prevent the required hydraulic pressure from powering the movements within the transmission. It can cause your transmission to overheat. Gears can slip, surge, or become worn down.

Needle Roller Bearings

Many tiny components keep your transmission running smoothly. Needle bearings are one of these small but key pieces that can cause damage to your transmission. These lightweight roller bearings help prevent grinding in the torque converter, but if the bearings become worn, they may produce a grinding or brushing noise when your car is moving. Needle rollers help your transmission gears move efficiently and can become worn down prematurely if not taken proper care of and may lead to greater damage.

Shifting Delays

If your car shows signs of hesitation when shifting gears or just refuses to move into gear, there is a clear problem to address. Shifting delays usually point to a transmission concern and require immediate attention to remedy the problem. Your vehicle should always shift smoothly. While you cannot always rely on your vehicle, you can count on Advanced Transmission Center to get you back on the road with little to no stress.

Shaky Shifting

Most car owners know how their vehicle runs and notice immediately when the car begins to hesitate, shake, or grind. It doesn’t take a mechanic to identify a problem, but you will need a qualified technician to pinpoint the cause and solve it accurately. As usual, when problems are ignored, they become worse and more dangerous to the health of your vehicle. The best action is to take your car to a reputable automatic transmission specialist as soon as you see signs of trouble.
