Diagnosing Transmission Problems Efficiently

Transmissions have an important role to play in vehicles and shouldn't be ignored.

Many signs can come up showing an aging transmission which might be on its last legs or requires immediate repairs. It's best to be on top of this instead of letting things lag. Once a transmission fails, it becomes a costly replacement and one most people want to avoid.

Let's take a look at what vehicle owners should be doing when it comes to diagnosis transmission problems and how Mike's Tech Transmission can be of assistance.

Symptoms Of Bad Transmission

What does a "bad" transmission look like? Most vehicle owners will be unaware. In fact, most will spot these signs and ignore them until they worsen.

These symptoms include:

  • Odd Noises (i.e. Consistent Whining)
  • Trouble Shifting Gears
  • Leaking Transmission Fluid
  • Burning Odor

These symptoms can start pointing towards a transmission needing immediate repair. Letting things get out of control is not recommended as the transmission is going to burn out.

When you have a good understanding of what these symptoms are, it becomes easier to spot them. With Mike's Tech Transmission, our techs can speed up this process and race through a checklist of symptoms making sure you're aware of what is ailing your transmission.

Check Transmission Fluid

Now, it's time to break down what should be done when it comes to diagnosing your transmission. Our ASE Certified technicians go through an array of steps using modernized equipment to help pinpoint what is troubling your transmission and how to fix it.

The first step is to check the part's fluid level.

Transmission fluid should be replaced every 50,000 miles and regular checks are necessary. If the fluid is looking burnt or "cloudy," its time to replace it effective immediately. Do not drive the vehicle as it might be on the edge of breaking down.

Check For Leaks

The naked eye might not spot lingering leaks, but a deeper inspection can do so. General leaks will be easier to notice as they're going to make a mess around where one has parked. However, for smaller leaks that are not as noticeable, it's best to speak to a qualified team. Our professionals are ready to assist and help pinpoint any concerns with leaks.

Using high-grade equipment, these leaks become easier to spot, and our team will sift through to ensure the transmission doesn't have potential issues on the horizon.

Assess Shifting Of Gears

With years of experience, our techs can determine a poorly run transmission in seconds. Through a quick assessment of a transmission's gears, it becomes easier to pinpoint how deep the damage is and what might be causing the trouble.

It is recommended to assess this as soon as possible.

If you're feeling it while driving, you're going to feel it all the time. The jerking and grinding can only get worse until a meaningful solution is put in place by a trained team. At Mike's Tech Transmission, we can get to the bottom of the concern and implement a high-quality solution as soon as you want it.
