Why Your Transmission May Need Service

There are several issues that could be caused by a failing transmission. Even more perplexing is that they can also come with many of the same symptoms. Our service technicians will run a comprehensive inspection to provide you with the right diagnosis. In the meantime, make yourself aware of what symptoms you should be looking for.

The transmission is the vehicle component that delivers power from your engine to your wheels. Without it, you won't be getting very far. If your car's response time feels sluggish, or your gears seem reluctant to shift, your transmission may be in trouble. The cause of this problem could be simple-low or leaking transmission fluid can affect your gear response and speed. However, if the transmission itself is damaged, a more thorough repair will be necessary.
