Are you experiencing transmission hard shifting problems? Discover what the possible causes are and how you can prevent them
It’s one of the most common problems drivers experience when troubles arise with their vehicles’ transmissions: transmission kicking, also referred to as hard or jerky shifting when changing gears. If you’re experiencing this unsettling problem, a variety of potential causes could be responsible.
More often than not, hard transmission shifts can be attributed to an inadequate level of transmission fluid in your vehicle, or the fluid’s effectiveness is failing because it’s old, dirty, and needs replacing. If the transmission begins to overheat, the fluid will oxidize and it won’t lubricate or cool the transmission. Further, it’s possible your car needs a new transmission filter and a transmission flush, too.
Avoiding a costly transmission repair is entirely dependent upon preventative and proactive maintenance conducted at regular intervals by a certified and experienced professional technician.
