Signs Your Transmission Needs Service
A transmission diagnostic is the only definitive way to tell if you need a transmission service or transmission replacement. That said, there are several factors and warning signs to pay attention to when it comes to your vehicle’s transmission. For example, if it has been 15,000-60,000 miles since your oil filter has been replaced, you may need a transmission fluid and filter replacement. As far as warning signs go, bring your vehicle to The Car Clinic of Miami for a transmission diagnostic if you notice gears shifting late or grinding in the gears.
Another symptom of a transmission problem is the slightly sweet smell of burning transmission fluid. You may also see the fluid leak—transmission fluid is red in color, and it may be cloudy if there’s an issue with your transmission. As far as unusual noises, the transmission may be loud while in neutral, or you may hear loud rumbles, whining, banging, or humming noise when shifting. In addition, you may experience some shaking, and your check engine light may come on.
