Diagnosing car problems seems impossible at times.   The time you notice something out of the ordinary, it may be past time to find a way to fix the problem.  Vehicle mechanical problems are usually accompanied with distinct sounds and sensations that are key indicators that something isn't functioning the way it was designed to. Because transmissions get a lot of use over the miles, they're bound to start having problems after a while. Transmission repairs can be expensive and time-consuming, so it's worthwhile to pay early attention to anything that seems unusual.

Here are 10 signs of transmission trouble to watch out for:

  1. Refuses to go into gear
  2. Burning smell
  3. Noisy in Neutral
  4. Slipping gears
  5. Dragging clutch
  6. Leaking fluid
  7. Check Engine light comes on
  8. Grinding or shaking
  9. Whining, clunking, or humming
  10. Lack of response when trying to accelerate

Some of the common causes of these problems are low transmission fluid (usually the result of a leak), wrong viscosity (thickness) of fluid, a needed adjustment of the shift cables or clutch linkage, or mechanical wear of a part that may need replaced.

Ask your transmission repair mechanic to conduct a diagnostic test to identify problems that you may not even be able to feel or see.  It could be something other than the transmission, such as the constant velocity joints (CV joints), or even the differential.
