Transmission service in Denver is easy to find through Key Transmission and Gears as we service all of Denver including the surrounding metro area and have been doing so successfully for over 20 years. Automobile transmissions are designed to hold each gear at predetermined speeds without complication.

If automobile transmission slips between gears, it can lead to possible transmission problems.

Our ASE trained transmission technicians in Denver will determine the following problems worthy of transmission service: worn or damaged parts within the transmission that may require an internal repair, electrical controls that may need adjustment or replacement, external control for transmission which requires a simple adjustment or replacement, or the identification of insufficient transmission fluid levels that may be the cause of low fluid pressure. Key Transmission and Gears offer several warranty programs to avoid trouble free driving.  These warranties cover defective transmission materials and workmanship, including parts and labor.

Top 10 Transmission Problems

Top 10 Transmission ProblemsTo help our customers get better acquainted with their vehicles, Key Transmission and Gears offers this list of the top 10 transmission problems. Of course, we’re always on hand to diagnose and address any issues you come across. But being aware of some of these transmission symptoms can help you avoid serious problems and more expensive repairs.

  1. Lack of Response

Cars with automatic transmissions should immediately engage when you shift into park or drive. A hesitation is an indication of something wrong. In manual transmissions, you may notice that the engine’s RPM’s rev up but the vehicle isn’t moving at the rate that the engine sounds like it’s going. Usually, this points to a clutch needing replacement.

  1. Unusual Noises

Sounds are difficult to diagnose, but if the transmission causes the noises, you will hear something you’ve never noticed before. A telltale indication that the sound is coming from or caused by the transmission is if it happens during shifting.

  1. Leaking or Low Fluid

If your transmission is low on fluid and you don’t do anything about it, there will most certainly be problems. If you notice red liquid pooling under your vehicle when parked, there is probably a leak.

  1. Grinding or Shaking

Gear changes should be smooth. If you notice that the gears in a manual transmission are grinding into place when you shift, or the gears in an automatic one are shaking into place, there is probably something amiss.

  1. Burning Smell

A burning smell coming from your engine is never a good sign. In some cases, it can be the transmission fluid burning off. If you let it go too long, the transmission can get seriously damaged.

  1. Won’t Go into Gear

Sometimes it won’t go into gear at all. This could be a lack of fluid, or the computer system is malfunctioning. Check the fluid level, and you can try resetting the computer system to see if that fixes the problem.

  1. Check Engine Light

While the check engine light comes on for many issues, it deserves a spot on our top 10 transmission problems list. Yes, that light can point to transmission troubles, so you should never ignore it.

  1. Noisy in Neutral

If you notice that your transmission is noisy in neutral, it could just be that it is low on fluid. If not, get it to a mechanic soon. 

  1. Slipping Gears

Gears should not ever slip out on their own. If that is happening, have your vehicle checked immediately as this is a severe safety issue.

  1. Clutch Drags

Sometimes in manual transmissions, the clutch is too loose, and the flywheel doesn’t disengage as it should when the clutch is pressed. You’ll notice this by grinding noises when you try to shift and in some cases, you may not be able to shift at all.

This is just a quick overview of the top 10 transmission problems that you can run into. If you notice any of these, or that something is out of whack with your vehicle, be sure to give us a call here at Key Transmission and Gears. Our experts can check it out and hopefully prevent a small problem from becoming a serious one.
