If you have owned a vehicle for very long, you know that if you want to keep your vehicle for very long, you will make sure to follow the intervals for transmission service recommended in your vehicle owner’s manual (i.e., every 60,000 to 100,000 miles). are aware that the transmission system is constantly exposed to both heat and stress.

So what are the signs your transmission is going out?

  • High RPMs at driving speed (over 3,500)
  • Delay in acceleration
  • Inability to reverse
  • Unusual or burnt smells
  • Check engine light flashes
  • Difficulty shifting gears--a harsh response or strange noises.

Because the transmission is constantly exposed to both heat and stress, it important to take care of the recommended transmission service: If neglected, here are some of the issues that can develop:

  • Low fluid level – This will cause overheating and too low of hydraulic pressure to engage gears. It can also indicate a leak in the transmission.
  • Burnt fluid – This will happen if your transmission overheats and it may smell like burnt toast or turn black in color.
  • Worn or broken transmission bands – The band that links the gears in automatic transmissions can become worn or broken.
  • Clutch problems – They may become worn or burnt from inadequate transmission fluid.
  • Worn out gears – Over time gears can wear out due to normal wear and tear. Worn or frayed gears don’t properly link together so this can cause a bumpy shift.
  • Solenoid Problems – If the solenoid (the valve that controls the flow of fluid throughout the transmission) is damaged or there are electrical problems, the wrong amounts of fluid will be dispersed.
  • Torque converter issues – Unable to change the engine’s power into torque that the transmission can use.
