This is a very common and easy symptom to notice, and you should act as soon as you see this. Why is that? Well, unlike motor oil, transmission fluid is not consumed or burned during use. The fluid level should remain the same regardless of how long the fluid has been in there. If you notice the fluid level drop or if there’s a bright red, sweet-smelling fluid found underneath your vehicle, those are clear signs that the transmission fluid is leaking.
There are a variety of reasons that this issue could have occurred, so it’s best to visit our shop and let our automotive team take a look. We’ll be able to properly assess what’s going on with your vehicle and provide it with the transmission service it needs.
Another easy symptom to look out for, you’ll notice this when you feel any sort of hesitation or hitching when you shift gears. The transmission system was designed to smoothly shift from one gear to the next, and any type of delay is a clear sign of transmission failure. Automatic drivers will notice this symptom when they transition from “Park” to “Drive” and vice vera, while manual drivers will notice this when they are shifting gears in general.
Please visit our shop as soon as possible if you notice this symptom! This can be very difficult and dangerous to drive with and can cause serious damage to your transmission system if not promptly handled.
