What Does the Transmission Do?

The main function of your car’s transmission system is to send the appropriate amount of power to the wheels. Like a multi-speed bicycle, your transmission system shifts between different gears to adjust the speed of your car. Tending to your transmission system helps maintain optimal fuel economy and keeps you moving forward without a hitch.

Signs I Need Transmission Repair

If you notice any of the following signs, it’s a good idea to bring your vehicle in for transmission repair or service to mitigate further damage to the system:

  • Difficulty shifting between gears
  • Grinding or vibrations when shifting gears
  • Unusual noises
  • Burning smell
  • Cloudy transmission fluid
  • Red fluid leak

By paying attention to your vehicle and responding accordingly, you can maximize both efficiency and safety out on the road.

How to Check Transmission Fluid

Transmission fluid is red and therefore easy to identify. To check your transmission fluid level, be sure to refer to your owner’s manual. Then, you can go through the following steps with your car turned off, engine cooled, and sitting on level ground:

  1. Locate and remove the transmission dipstick, which should be covered in red fluid.
  2. Wipe off any liquid on the dipstick.
  3. Fully reinsert the dipstick and remove it again to accurately assess the fluid level.

If your transmission fluid reaches the full indicator line and you haven’t noticed any of the signs mentioned on this page, you’re good to go. However, if it’s low, you’ll want to refill the fluid, little by little, while checking it with the dipstick to ensure you don’t overfill your transmission.

Our technicians will also happily flush and refill your transmission fluid for you. The process usually takes about an hour, so you’ll be on your way in no time!
