As an informed vehicle owner, you probably understand that the transmission system is constantly exposed to both heat and stress. You also are aware that if you want to keep your vehicle for very long, it is vital to follow the transmission service schedule recommended in your vehicle owner’s manual—typically about every 60,000-100,000 miles.

However, if you think you are starting to notice odd problems when shifting, you may be wondering just what are signs your transmission is going out? Take a look below:

  • Shifting Problems: Is it hard to shift into gear or does the gear pop out while driving? You may start to hear whining, clunking or thumping sounds when you shift. Or you may feel jerking or stalling when shifting gears. This may be due to worn out parts in the transmission system.
  • Transmission warning light: A warning light alone doesn’t necessarily mean you have a transmission problem. However, if you notice any of the shifting problems above occurring in conjunction with the warning light, you should schedule a diagnostic test to pinpoint the problem and have the appropriate transmission repair taken care of.
  • Major transmission failure: Has your transmission given out completely, leaving you stranded? Your auto mechanic can advise you of the transmission repair options that may work for you, such as a transmission rebuild or replacement.

If you’ve been a vehicle owner for very long, you know that it is much more cost effective to keep up with the recommended transmission service intervals than to wait for a major and costly transmission repair. Sooner rather than later, schedule an inspection to see which parts are wearing out and whether or not your vehicle is safe to drive.

Wondering about what are signs your transmission is going out? Contact our ASE Certified technicians at Big Lake Automotive today for more information about transmission repair and to schedule an appointment. Our auto shop proudly serves the residents of Big Lake, MN, and surrounding areas.
