When to Check Your Transmission

There are many signs of transmission trouble, with many causes. Some are minor, but others will cost a great deal. The longer you wait, the more expensive it will be to repair. If you experience any of the following symptoms, have your mechanic check your transmission immediately.
  1. Morning Sickness- If your vehicle fails to move or shifts late when it is cold.
  2. Nothing happens when you place the shift lever into Drive or Reverse, and even racing the engine does not work.
  3. The engine revs, but the vehicle does not move or accelerates very slowly.
  4. You find fluid under the vehicle.
  5. The vehicle shifts early or late at improper intervals.
  6. Putting the pedal to the floor results in no surge of power.
  7. Clunks or rough feeling when shifting into gear. Any strange noises.
  8. Shifting is erratic, changing unexpectedly.
  9. The vehicle moves while in Neutral or tries to move in Park.
  10. The vehicle stalls or chugs on taking off.
  11. Engine braking does not work in some gears or shift positions.
  12. It is hard to move the shift handle.
  13. You need to place the shift handle slightly off Park or Neutral to start the vehicle, or if the shift indicator does not point to the right range.
  14. A burnt or rancid odor emanating from the engine.
  15. Any debris in the transmission pan.
  16. The "Check Engine" or "Service Engine" light is on.
