Why Your Transmission is Important
Outside of the engine, your vehicle’s transmission system is the most important piece in your vehicle. Responsible for changing gears, it’s the reason why you’re able to tell your vehicle to go forward or backward. For manual drivers, their transmission system gives them the added benefit of controlling the RPMs within their vehicle. It’s pretty clear why the transmission is so important to your vehicle, and it’s also important that you when you run into transmission trouble, you should bring your vehicle to our shop.

Do You Need Transmission Repair?
When it comes to preventative maintenance, one of the best ways to practice it is by understanding the warning signals your transmission gives you when it’s in trouble. By knowing these signals, you can be proactive and get well ahead of the problem before it gets worse. If you’re curious as to what these warning signals are, the G& M Auto team is here to help you. Here are a few signs that it’s time to get your transmission system checked and repaired!
Many of today’s vehicles are equipped with sensors that’ll detect something wrong well before you feel, hear, or smell it. These sensors send a signal to the computer system, which activates the warning light! Make sure you visit our shop as soon as possible, as this light is a precursor for worse to come if you leave the issue unattended!
When you smell transmission fluid, it should have a tart or sweet smell to it. If you smell a burning odor, that’s a sign that it may be time to visit our shop and get your fluid changed. If left unattended, you could face a transmission rebuild as burnt transmission fluid could mean the entire transmission system is burning!
The transmission system was built to be responsive and smooth. If you shift gears, the system should automatically lock on to that specific gear. If you notice a slight hesitation or hitch, that is a clear sign of transmission issues. For manual drivers, you’ll notice this as you are shifting gears. For automatic drivers, it’ll be when you shift your vehicle from “Park” to “Drive.”
