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:

Do you know the difference between routine vehicle maintenance and needed repairs? Routine maintenance items are those listed in your vehicle's owner's manual as part of the maintenance service schedule. These services are intended to keep your vehicle in top operating condition so you are driving as safe as possible. Repairs are needed to fix a problem, such as a replacing bad brake rotor or replacing a wheel to a more complicated service such as overhauling a transmission or diagnosing an electronic system problem.

Do you know that you don’t have to go to the dealer where you bought your vehicle for scheduled maintenance? Federal law gives you the right to service your vehicle wherever you like without affecting your warranty coverage. Because maintenance items are fairly basic, any reputable auto repair shop should be able to perform the necessary tasks.

To receive the best auto repair services possible, the mechanics at the Big Lake auto repair shop can explain the difference between repairs and routine car maintenance.

The first combustion engine developed by J. J. Étienne Lenoi in 1859 had a small metal reducer on the end of the exhaust designed to reduce backfiring. It was not designed to reduce emissions or sound. Since then, mufflers have evolved and are required components on any vehicle that operates on U.S. roads.

Today's mufflers serve two functions:

  • To reduce exhaust system noise that is directed from exhaust ports to the exhaust pipes
  • To help direct exhaust gases out of the engine
There are some tell-tale signs of exhaust system issues. If you’re wondering what causes a muffler to go bad, call auto repair experts at Big Lake Automotive.
