How do you know when you need transmission repair in Los Angeles? There are several signs that your car’s transmission may need service or repairs. If you experience any of the following, we recommend making an appointment or bringing your vehicle by Bussard’s All-Pro Automotive Center. As with many vehicle issues, if left unattended transmission problems can cause lasting damage to your vehicle that is expensive and time-consuming to fix. Here are some signs to watch out for:
- Slipping out of gear while driving
- Hesitation when changing gears
- Grinding noise while changing gears, loud clanking, or other odd noises
- Unusual smells coming from your vehicle
- Leaking red or brown fluid under your vehicle
There are all indicators that there may be something amiss with your transmission. It may need routine maintenance; transmission fluid needs to be flushed out and replaced on a regular schedule similar to automotive oil. If the transmission fluid is opaque or cloudy, it is probably time to flush the system. This transmission service includes flushing out the old fluid, replacing it with new transmission fluid, cleaning or replacing the transmission filter, and cleaning or replacing the transmission gasket. The general rule of thumb for this transmission service is every 2 years or 30,000 miles, but you can always bring your vehicle into Bussard’s to check if your transmission needs maintenance.
