The transmission on your vehicle is very important. This is the mechanism in the engine of your vehicle that helps to make sure that the right amount of power goes to your wheels to drive at a given speed. It works by shifting gears in a very similar fashion to what you see on a multi-speed bicycle. Let us decide whether you need Transmission Rebuilding or Transmission Repair

Can You Drive with a Bad Transmission? 

The short answer is, no. When your vehicle has a slipping transmission there are many safety reasons to avoid driving. When a transmission is on the verge of going out, it could spontaneously shift into different gears causing a harsh kick that could lunge your car forward and if there is another vehicle where it could cause an accident. These harsh kicks can also damage your engine mounts and if left unattended, the end result could be an inoperable transmission. This is bad news because a new transmission cost can be extremely high. 

If your vehicle isn’t completely destroyed and the engine is still running well then it might worth your while to quickly come in to see one of our professionals at Ed’s Transmission and Automotive Repair.  

What are signs of a bad transmission? 

  • Delayed reaction or delayed engagement of the transmission 
  • Odd smells 
  • Transmission warning light 
  • Rough shifts 
  • Transmission fluid leak 
  • Grinding or strange sounds from the engine

While there are few car repairs that are more nerve-wracking than transmission failure, there are more solutions than simply replacing the transmission. Transmission problems can be solved with a range of solutions. Our professional mechanics can help you by giving you options that may keep you from having to replace the entire transmission. This will depend on the severity of your transmission damage.
