Your car’s transmission is a critical mechanical component of the vehicle that is often referenced but perhaps little understood. To take a very high-level view, the transmission is the component of your vehicle’s operation that serves as a link between the engine and the wheels. It enables the provision of just the right amount of power to the wheels at a given output from the engine (or at a given speed.)
Without an operable transmission, your car will be stuck in one gear, which effectively renders the vehicle itself inoperable. Signs of a transmission that may be going are slipping gears, the inability to easily switch gears, or even a grinding or grating sensation coming from inside or under the car. Even a check engine light may be a tip-off that something is wrong with your transmission.
Additionally, transmission repairs and service can be costly, so it’s a good idea to address them ahead of time before they become a real issue that can cost hundreds or thousands of dollars. Common problems with a vehicle’s transmission could be caused by old, dirty, or low transmission fluid levels; but they could also be more serious, caused by worn needle roller bearings that cause the transmission’s gears to operate inefficiently. In addition to wearing, the gear teeth can deform or shear off, causing more extensive repairs.
Of course, the latter is a relatively serious problem. You may experience warning signs well in advance of developing serious issues, that if you heed, can potentially prevent them. If you’re experiencing any of the problems mentioned above or have a reason to suspect that your transmission is wearing or performing inadequately, it’s time to bring your car to the care of a transmission shop in Tucson.
