Without a properly working transmission, it can be pretty tough to leave your driveway, much less get where you need to go. Your vehicle’s transmission, whether it’s automatic or manual, has one very important job: keep the engine in sync with the wheels no matter what gear the vehicle is in. If your transmission is failing, you’ll know it.
Here are some signs to look out for if you need transmission service:
• Fluid leaks
• Warning light activates, detecting a hotter-than-normal transmission temperature
• Sweet, tart or burning odor
• Sounds of grinding, whining, buzzing, or humming
• Delay in movement
