Transmission Problems are Slippery Business

Transmission slippage can be caused by a variety of factors that are sometimes difficult to pin down. From Donnie Braun & Sons Auto Repair in Jefferson City, MO, here’s a rundown of the more common issues that may cause a transmission to slip. Our highly trained technicians are ready to get you going with a top transmission.

Low fluid - If your transmission fluid level gets even a little low, your car’s transmission will start to act up. You might notice it slipping in and out of gear or failing to shift or stay engaged. Check the fluid your car’s owner manual recommends, and make sure your fluid level is correct. Once you’ve got it right, be sure to keep an eye on it, and track down the cause of your leak. If you can’t locate it, our technicians at Donnie Braun & Sons Auto Repair are glad to help you.

Worn/Burnt Clutches - Your truck’s transmission is packed with clutches that allow it to engage or disengage. If they’ve become worn or damaged, they won’t work properly, and your transmission will slip. Typically, there are other issues at hand that result in damaged clutches, and the clutches themselves require the entire transmission to be broken down in order for them to be replaced. Most of the time, a rebuild or replacement will be in order. At Donnie Braun & Sons Auto Repair, our technicians can help you decide what the best option will be.

Electronics - Modern transmissions are electronically controlled and actuated by a variety of solenoids, modules, and sensors. If any of these fail, it can cause your SUV’s transmission to slip or at least feel like it’s slipping. Most of the time, you’ll get a warning light on the dash, but not always. The good news is, if remedied quickly, it’s typically an easy fix and you’ll be back on the road in no time.

When it comes to transmissions, don’t wait to get it checked out by a professional at Donnie Braun & Sons Auto Repair if you notice an issue. Depending on the nature of the problem, it only takes driving your car once to ruin an otherwise good transmission.
