Common Symptoms of Transmission Problems

Last updated 5 years ago

Manual and automatic transmissions are both likely to need repair services at some point during their lifetime. To find out what some of the most common problems are for each type of transmission, watch this video clip.

One of the most common reasons for manual transmission repair is worn synchros. You can tell that your manual transmission has worn synchros if there is a grinding noise during shifting, if your transmission pops out of gear when it’s under heavy load, or if the gear doesn’t stay in gear when you’re coasting. Frequent transmission problems with automatic transmissions include low fluid, dirty fluid, or a slipping transmission caused by issues such as bad clutch bands or a dirty valve body.

To get your transmission maintenance or repair in a timely and affordable manner, come to Dekalb Tire. Call us at (404) 252-9895 to get the answers to your questions, and visit our website to find our five locations in the Atlanta area.
