Transmission is what changes the gears of an engine as it speeds up and slows down, and those that are automatic do so without requiring manual depression of a clutch or the adjustment of a gear shifter. If a transmission stops operating reliably, it may lead to severe mechanical issues and cause the vehicle to react in unpredictable ways increasing the propensity of the driver being involved in a collision. The following are just three of the most prominent signs that indicate that repair of an Automatic Transmission in Arizona may be warranted.
Screeching and Grinding Noises
A transmission produces virtually no noise when it is in operation, and one of the first indicators of a pressing issue is the presence of loud screeching or grinding noises as gears are changed. It is a good idea to check the fluid levels, but regardless of the cause, it will require repair by a qualified mechanic. Some problems may also require the vehicle to be connected to a computer, so that the mechanic may better determine the exact cause of the malfunction.
Hard Shifting During Operation
An Automatic Transmission in Arizona is designed to switch between gears without creating an excessive amount of vibration. If a driver notices that their vehicle is straining to change gears and that the change is accompanied by a sudden jolt, they should immediately pull off to safety. Not only is driving it unsafe but continuing to do so may increase the amount of damage.
Slow Gear Changes
When a vehicle is placed into gear, the engine should be engaged in a matter of seconds, which allows the driver to begin driving immediately. If a transmission is slow to change gears, or if the gear shifter is not moving when the release button and break are depressed, it is not a good idea to operate it. Be sure to pull over right away and have the car inspected by a certified mechanic.
