Our professional mechanics will look over your vehicle, making sure there isn’t anything serious going on. If there is a major problem we will do our best to resolve it quickly for you!
Grating, buzzing, clicking sound when you shift gears
Strange noises means something is wrong! A lot of motorists make the mistake of ignoring clicking, grating and buzzing sounds, assuming it’s nothing serious. These sounds are a sign that your transmission is not running properly and that it needs to be taken to the shop for an inspection!
If your car is not running at a normal speed or it feels extra sluggish no matter how hard you step on that gas; it means your transmission is not functioning as it should.
Vehicle doesn’t move when gear shift is placed into ‘drive’ or ‘reverse’
Sometimes signs of transmission failure pop up in very subtle and bizarre ways. One of them has to do with gears. Some drivers assume that this means there is a technical glitch but in reality it is a major sign of transition failure.
Here are a few more signs to look for:
- Difficult shifting gears – Stuck gear shift
- Gear slipping
- Fluid leaks beneath your vehicle
- Whistling or buzzing sound
- Burning smell from transmission fluid
