There are five disturbing signs that you should never ignore a vehicle's transmission. They can cause serious damage or even failure and cost you dearly. But what is it all about?
When you are driving, does your car hesitate to change gears or refuse to do so? This is an extremely worrying sign for transmission.
When an automatic transmission slip occurs while driving, it feels like the car is shifting gears.
If you go from "P" to "D" and press the accelerator, does a delay occur before the car does anything? This is an indication of a transmission problem.
We have all at one time or another seen leak spots under our car. Most of the time, these are harmless spills due to water escaping from the air conditioner, for example.
Is the “engine warning” light on? If this is the only sign of a problem, you don't necessarily need to be concerned, but if you have also noticed one or more of the other faults we just described, it is best to have your car checked by a professional.
If anything seems abnormal to you, it is best to consult a professional auto mechanic shop quickly.
