Are you currently experiencing any problems with your transmission or clutch assembly? It could be that you have a bad transmission or a bad throw-out bearing.

Transmission Service & Clutch Replacement

Your transmission and clutch work together to help shift your vehicle into gear and send power to your wheels. Without one or the other, your vehicle would be lucky to drive a few feet without sputtering out of control. To help you avoid the common roadblocks associated with a bad transmission, the Northtown service experts are equipped to repair your transmission and replace your damaged clutch.

How to Tell Your Transmission is Failing

Transmission failure is common on older vehicles and can also affect newer model cars. Whether you drive a truck, car, minivan, or SUV, all vehicles that send power to the wheels rely on some form of mechanical transmission. Some cars are manual, some are automatic, but the key is knowing how to identify that your transmission is on the fritz.

To help you catch potential transmission problems before they evolve and create more permanent damage, our service center professionals have laid out the top five warning signs indicating you may have a damaged transmission, including:

  1. Leaking transmission fluid
  2. Flashing check engine light
  3. Dirty, thick, and pungent transmission fluid
  4. Trouble shifting into gear
  5. Lack of power delivered to your wheels

What Signs Indicate a Worn Out Clutch?

For drivers in Lockport, NY, who drive automatic, you may not be totally familiar with your clutch and how it works. Basically, it is a mechanic lever of sorts that helps you shift from one gear to another. In cars with a manual transmission, the driver must manually shift the transmission into gear, while automatic drivers have the freedom of the mechanism doing it for them. There are many signs that potentially indicate a worn-out clutch, including:

  • Loud grinding noise when shifting
  • Trouble finding and locking into reverse
  • Smelly odor emanating from the engine bay
  • Frequent clutch slipping as you shift
  • Clutch pedal is either too tough or too soft
