Fluid on the ground where you were just parked

The color of your transmission fluid is brown or another dark color

  1. The transmission fluid has a burnt odor
  • Transmission slips (misbehavior and odd shifts)
  • The RPMs on your engine go higher than normal
  • Shifting from one gear to the next takes longer or is harder for your vehicle to complete
  • Strange and excessive noise or vibrations                

All of the above are the most easily noticeable signs of a transmission problem. You should not defer service to your transmission. Why gamble and possibly put yourself in the unfortunate position of not having a properly operating vehicle? Having your vehicle checked and serviced at the manufacturer's recommended time will prolong the life of your transmission and prevent you from experiencing major inconveniences.

Common types of transmission failures result from excessive heat. Have you been having your transmission fluid changed as recommended? Not having your transmission fluid changed as required results in the fluid breaking down. Also, driving your car frequently in heavy stop and go traffic will wreak havoc on your transmission. Having an external transmission cooler installed help prevent the damage that stop and go Dallas traffic can do to your transmission relieve this heavy wear on your transmission. It helps it run cooler which prolongs the life expectancy of the transmission. Why not consider installing an external transmission cooler?

Transmissions come in a wide range of "gears or speeds", from older two-speed power glides to the current eight-speed overdrives used in today's vehicles. Additionally, we now have constant velocity transmissions or CVTs. This is a one-speed transmission that does not shift. Most of these CVT transmissions are not manufactured in a way to be rebuilt. Depending on the type of repairs that are required, a few of these types of transmissions can be serviced.

The types of transmission repairs vary and so does the cost. Your vehicle may require an external repair, usually minor. It may require a transmission overhaul, also called a transmission rebuild. Rear or front wheel drive, overdrive, 4x4 or all wheel drive are all factors of a transmission that must be considered to determine a fair cost. Four by four or all wheel drive has a transfer case component to "transfer" motion to all four wheels.

We also have to factor in the many variations of manufacturers. You may own a domestic vehicle but have a transmission that can also be found in a foreign vehicle or vice versa. For example, your Chevrolet Equinox may have the identical transmission that a Volvo has. Also, a Toyota may have a transmission manufactured by General Motors.

All transmissions work on the same principal, but may have differing components. Where one type of transmission may have a few simple sensors or solenoids, others may also have a transmission control module, or TCM. Some transmissions may also depend on a power control module (PCM) in addition to the sensors and solenoids. All of these components are connected by a single harness, which over time, may rub against another component or just become brittle with age. It is not unusual for vehicles used and parked in rural areas to have rodents enter it and nest. Rodents gnaw and may decide to gnaw on the wiring, which in turn creates a short.

Modules, similar to those in a personal computer, may need to be updated so as to operate on the most current software available. This too can resolve transmission problems. The Transmission Shop Dallas is proud in our ability to properly diagnose your vehicle. We are also confident that we can keep you from overspending and won't have you pay for something that is not needed at all. Because of this, we warranty all of our transmission repairs.
