Whe it comes to vehicle service and maintenance, the transmission system is usually ignored until there is a major problem. In most cases people notice their vehicle is not running properly, but ignore the problem with the hope that the symptoms will work themselves out. Brentwood Transmission & Auto Repair Center wants you to take care of your transmission service and repair, because problems may start out small, but get worse over time. The following symptoms may indicate a problem with your transmission:
Failing or delaying when shifting- Normally, the transmission is designed to hold effortlessly in each gear and shift at predetermined times and speeds.
When shifting you notice a thumping, lagging or lugging- Unusual noises coming from the transmission indicates a problem internally with parts working together.
Red, pink or brown puddles under your vehicle- This indicates that you have a transmission fluid leak and is something that you should not ignore. This could be a minor problem or major. But maintaining the correct fluid level properly cools the transmission and helps to lubricate the moving parts internally.
Your vehicle fails to move, but the engine is running- Indicates that you have a transmission problem and contact Brentwood Transmission and discuss the situation with a technician. In some cases the vehicle fails to move when cold, but improves once the vehicle warms-up. It would be a good idea to discuss this problem with a technician before attempting to drive it.
