5 Signs of a Failing Transmission

Transmission Slipping

Does your vehicle feel like it is changes gears randomly while driving? Are you experiencing struggling or a lack of acceleration? These may be signs your transmission is slipping and needs to be looked at by a certified technician. Slipping of the transmission may be accompanied by a whining sound. Any of these symptoms may require your transmission be serviced.

Rough Gear Shifting

Does your car feel like it is refusing to shift gears or is just doing so un-smoothly? Rough gear shifting can be a sign that your transmission is failing. You may hear a thud/clunk noise while attempting to shift gears as well. If your vehicle is shifting gears roughly or making odd noises it may be time to contact a local Denver transmission repair specialist.

Fluid Leaks/Stains

Noticing new fluid stains and/or leaks underneath your vehicle? The transmission is a closed system that should not leak fluid at all. Transmission fluid is typically pink/red in color but can sometimes appear brown as well. If you notice any new stains underneath your vehicle, especially a red-ish stain you should contact our local transmission services specialists.

Odd Transmission Sounds

Whining, clunking, thuds, all of these noises can be a sign your transmission is failing in your vehicle. When shifting your vehicle from Park to Drive, you may also hear the engine revving yet it doesn’t appear to get power. Any new noises that your vehicle is making could be a sign of something serious like transmission failure. Our transmission repair specialists are trained to notice all the sounds/signs of a transmission problem.
