The transmission is one of the most essential parts of your car. However, it is one of the most expensive parts to replace. If you have your car for a long time, it is possible that you will eventually need to replace the car’s transmission. Here are some signs that your transmission needs to be replaced:
The first sign is if your car is leaking transmission fluid. Check under your parked car for fluid pools that are red in color. Then look to see if there is any metal in the fluid. If there is metal, it is essential that you replace your transmission since broken metal indicates a worn down transmission.
Also, check the fluid levels in your car’s transmission. If the levels are low, this may be a sign that your transmission is overheating or burning too much fluid.
Another sign that you need to replace your transmission is if there is a rough transition between gears when you drive. Your gears may slip and take longer to switch between gears. This will cause your car to accelerate much slower.
Transmission replacements can be very expensive so it is wise to look into an aftermarket auto warranty company where you can purchase an extended auto warranty to lower the costs of any repair bills that you receive. Lastly, be certain that you purchase an auto warranty that provides the right amount of coverage for your car.
