How Common are Transmission Problems

The transmission is one of the most complex and and intricate components in your automobile. It would be misleading to think of it as a muffler or an axle, as the transmission is actually a collection of various parts working in their own way to create the perfect harmony that is an efficient and smooth transmission; that is, when it is working properly. As with everything in a vehicle, transmissions do experience problems and can break down. But how often should we reasonably expect that to happen? How common are transmission problems?

Transmission Problems

Because the transmission is such a complicated piece of machinery, transmission problems can come in a plethora of different forms and ways. A transmission is not like a pair of windshield wipers, where you can clearly see if something is wrong. Transmission problems may be subtle. If you’re not paying attention, you may not notice that your transmission is experiencing problems. Even if you are paying attention, it can be hard to tell. Not to mention, as with a lot of problems you might incur while driving a vehicle, it’s difficult to be certain what part of your car is causing the problem. That is why it is so vital to have your transmission serviced regularly by a team of highly qualified and skilled technicians, just like the ones here at Mister Transmission.

Common Transmission Problems

As mentioned above, any number of things can go wrong with a transmission. An obvious one is lack of response. If your transmission is not responding to what you want it to do, then you have a problem. Another telltale sign of transmission problems are a variety of strange noises that can emanate from your car. A whining, clunking, or humming noise is often a sign of a transmission problem. And sometimes these noises are accompanied by a grinding or shaking. If you experience such symptoms, bringing your vehicle into Mister Transmission soon than later would be a wise decision.

If your transmission is noisy even while your car is in neutral, this could a sign of wear and tear, and possibly a harbinger of further problems. The origins of smells can be difficult to determine, but a transmission that is emitting a burning smell is a definite problem. If you notice your car is leaking fluid, that is a clear sign of  a transmission problem as well. Then there are the symptoms that are clear and obvious problems. If your car refuses to go into gear, if the gears slip, or if the clutch drags, you don’t want to put up with that for very long. These can be serious transmission problems.

And please, do not ignore the check engine light! Transmissions and automobiles as a whole are complicated pieces of technology and a lot can go wrong. And when there are problems, the consequences can be very serious. That’s why you shouldn’t fret too much over how often you should be experiencing transmission problems. If you are experiencing any of the aforementioned transmission problems –or any others– bring your vehicle into Mister Transmission and we can get to the bottom of things and have your transmission up and running perfectly in no time.
