Transmission Issues Should be Dealt With Right Away
Transmission issues should not be taken lightly. It consists of several moving pieces performing complex functions to keep your car moving on the road. As soon as you notice something is wrong with your car’s performance then you should make time to get it looked at as soon as possible.

Problems can vary slightly from automatic to standard transmissions, but these are some common problems that can come up in an automatic transmission:
- Car refuses to get into gear, or gear slippage
- Car is noisy or rough when the transmission is in neutral
- Noticing a burning smell coming from the car
- Transmission leakage
