How to Efficiently Diagnose Transmission Problems

A vehicle’s transmission plays an important role and can’t be ignored.

There are many signs that your aging transmission is on its last leg or needs immediate repairs. You need to be on top of this. Don’t let these things lag. If your transmission fails, it will be a costly repair, one that most people would want to avoid.

Here’s what vehicle owners should do when it’s time to diagnose transmission issues and how Mike’s Tech Transmission can help.

Symptoms of a Bad Transmission

  • How to you know you have a bad transmission?
  • What does it look like?
  • Most vehicle owners simply don’t know.
  • In fact, most people see these signs and ignore them.

The common signs of a bad transmission include:

  • Trouble changing gears
  • Burning odors
  • Odd noises, such as consistent whining
  • Transmission fluid leak

These symptoms may point to a transmission in need of immediate repair. Don’t let things get out of control. If you do, your transmission will burn out.

When you know the common signs of a bad transmission, it becomes easier to spot them. A tech from Mike’s Tech Transmission can help speed up the process. They can run through a checklist of symptoms and ensure you’re aware of any transmission issues.

Check Your Transmission Fluid

Let’s break down some of the things that should be done in order to diagnose your transmission. Our ASE Certified Technician will go through various steps using modern equipment to pinpoint your exact transmission problem so that we can fix it.

The first step is checking the transmission fluid level.

You should check the fluid level regularly and replace your transmission fluid every 50,000 miles. If the fluid looks “cloudy” or burnt when you check it, it’s time to replace the fluid. You should do it immediately, even if you have not reached the 50,000 miles. Do not drive your vehicle if it may be on the edge of a breakdown.

Check for Leaks

To the naked eye, a lingering leak may be difficult to see. However, you can find most leaks on a deeper inspection. Generally, leaks are easier to notice since they leave a mess wherever you park your vehicle. However, a smaller leak may be harder to find. You need to have a qualified professional look for these leaks. Our techs are ready to help pinpoint any leaks that may concern you.

We use high-grade professional equipment that makes it easier to find. Our team works to ensure your transmission will not have any potential problems in the near future.

Assess Gear Shifting
