Strange sounds are a common occurrence when your vehicle’s transmission is in need of service. Manual transmission issues may sound different than automatic transmission issues, but it will still usually be a foreign and unmistakable sound. The earlier we can take a look at your vehicle, the less damage that will be done when driving it. Sometimes your vehicle will not respond to your attempts to accelerate into another gear. When you notice this serious problem, it should definitely be handled immediately. If your transmission is failing to engage, or not allowing you to accelerate as you need, you could be placing yourself and your passengers in danger.
Automotive repairs can be complex and the professional technicians at Smith Transmission are here to help get things repaired and you back on the road. Transmissions that are leaking fluid are another common symptom of needed repair. When you notice a leak you should seek immediate service because without proper lubrication your transmission may stop working altogether. If you notice a burning smell, this could also be another warning sign that your transmission needs attention. When the transmission starts running hot, the transmission fluid will start to break down and burn. This loss of fluid viscosity leaves the transmission parts susceptible to break down due to the increased friction of the metal parts. Your transmission might also be the cause of your check engine light coming on. Our expert technicians will be able to diagnose your check engine light to let you know the reason that it is on. There are a variety of repair-needed warning signs that you may recognize and we are here to help you get them fixed. Come to us for all of your automotive repair needs!
