  • Your vehicle sticks when you try to change gears.
  • You smell burning transmission fluid. You can tell that it’s transmission fluid because it will smell a little like something electrical burning. It’s a quite unmistakable scent once you’ve experienced it.
  • Your transmission makes a great deal of noise, even if it’s in neutral.
  • When you’re driving, your car starts to make whining, clunking, or humming notices.
  • Your vehicle won’t go into gear.
  • If you have a manual vehicle, watch out for a dragging clutch, or a clutch that won’t leave the gear it’s currently in so that you can switch gears.
  • You notice leaking transmission fluid on the driveway or in the parking lot.
  • Your check engine light is on. This light can indicate a number of problems that don’t have anything to do with the transmission, but it can also be an early transmission warning sign.

If you notice any of the above problems, it’s time to bring your vehicle to our transmission repair shop.
