Transmissions are mechanical components designed to transmit power from a car’s engine to its drive axle, which in turn drives the vehicle. By varying gear ratios, transmissions alter the levels of speed and power to the wheels. For instance, in low ranges, they provide more power and lesser speed. This reduces the engine’s load while increasing the vehicle’s fuel economy and speed.
Transmissions are available in two main modes, manual and automatic. Manual ones have a clutch pedal that disconnects and connects the transmission to the engine while automatic ones do so automatically. However, automatic transmissions rely on a special fluid known as ATF to lubricate and cool moving parts.
Whatever transmission type your vehicle has, it is vital that you check it regularly to ensure smooth operation. However, this is especially important for automatic gearboxes since they can break down easily should any problems go unsolved. Therefore, make sure that you check ATF levels and condition regularly.
Things You Could Avoid by Checking and Servicing Your Car Transmission Frequently
Transmission slipping happens when you are driving in a specific gear before it changes for no reason at all causing the engine to start producing a whining noise. It may also feel like the vehicle is struggling, or is not accelerating as it should, or is suddenly underpowered. Transmission slipping may be a sign of low fluid levels, a fluid leak, burnt fluid, worn out gears, broken or worn transmission bands, or torque converter issues.
Another common problem an unmaintained automatic gearbox will experience is delayed engagement. This is characterized by a delay before the vehicle engages into drive and moves forward. When shifting from “P” to “D”, you may notice a long pause where the vehicle revs the engine when you step on the gas pedal but does not move forward as expected. This may be as a result of the wearing out of internal seals or because of irregular replacement of the fluid.
Fluid leaks are the number one reason for most automatic gearbox problems. A transmission is a sealed unit that should never leak any fluids. So, if you notice any weak spots on your garage or driveway floor, find a cardboard and place under the car to find out if they are any active fluid leaks. If the leak is a bright red, dark brown or dark red fluid, then consider visiting your auto service shop as soon as possible.
Poor maintenance and servicing could also lead to rough shifts. You may notice that your car is refusing to shift gears as it normally would, or the shifts are not very smooth. In other instances, you could hear or feel a noticeable “thud” or “clunk” when the vehicle shifts gears or notice that the vehicle has difficulty gaining speed.
Checking your transmission, or having it checked by a professional regularly is one way to ensure the smooth operation of your transmission. Always look out for warning signs and schedule frequent checkups with your local auto service shop.
