There are thousands of parts in your car, and it can be difficult to know which parts do what. It can be even more difficult to determine whether something is wrong with your vehicle if you’re not trained about what to look for.
Many people have questions about their transmission. Here, we’ve compiled and answered some of the most frequently asked questions about transmissions so you know what to look for and where to go if you’re in need of transmission repair.
What does the transmission do?
The transmission transfers power around your vehicle. When you press the gas pedal, transmission fluid travels to your wheels so they know how fast they should go. The harder you press, the more fluid that moves, which causes your acceleration to increase. You need that get up and go when you’re merging onto I-76 during your morning commute out of Philadelphia.
How do I know if something is wrong with my transmission?
You may be experiencing issues with your transmission if you notice grinding or other strange noises, gear slippage, difficulty shifting gears, a feeling of the vehicle surging or jumping backward or forward, or a delay in movement after the vehicle is in gear. Any leaks or unusual smells, such as a burning smell, also could indicate a transmission concern, as could the warning light on your dashboard. If you notice any of these signs, like leaks, warning lights or a burning smell, make sure you’re being active about getting your transmission repaired at your local service center.
Sometimes a simple transmission fluid flush is all you need to get your transmission up and running well again. Sometimes, though, especially with older vehicles, certain parts in your transmission or elsewhere may need to be replaced, such as your crankshaft, roller weights, drive belt, clutch, or bellhousing.
When should I have my transmission serviced?
If you notice any of the problems listed above occurring with your vehicle, you should get your transmission checked by a specially trained Nissan service technician. The technician can not only take a look at and repair your transmission to get it running safely, but the technician also may be able to find and fix any other unknown problems with your vehicle.
