What Does My Car’s Transmission Do?
A car’s transmission moves the power from the engine to the wheels. Without the transmission, your vehicle’s wheels wouldn’t get the power they need to move your car.
There are several types of transmissions, although most fall under one of these two categories:
A manual transmission can also be known as a “stick shift.” Drivers change the gears using a clutch pedal and a shifter.
An automatic transmission changes gears for the driver. It uses a torque converter to shift the gears of your vehicle as needed.
Most vehicles on the market these days have automatic transmissions, although some models offer manual or the option to choose between automatic and manual, depending on how you wish to drive. The latter option often comes with luxury vehicles.
Signs Your Transmission May Need Some Repairs
There are a couple signs to watch for that let you know if your transmission is experiencing some issues.
The first is the check engine light on your dashboard. This light can have a few meanings, but a transmission issue could be one of them.
Another sign is when you notice gears slipping as you drive. This can seem as though your transmission is popping out of gear.
Have you noticed fluid on a parking space after you’ve pulled away? If it’s red or has a sweet smell, this likely indicates a leak in your vehicle’s transmission.
Has your vehicle begun grinding or shaking as you drive? This can indicate a transmission issue as your vehicle shifts gears. You may also hear whining, clunking, or humming sounds.
