Schaumburg, Itasca, Elk Grove Village, Naperville, Plainfield and Aurora Transmission Service

The automatic transmission is the most complicated mechanical component in today's vehicle. The automatic transmission contains mechanical systems, hydraulic systems, electrical systems, and computer controls that work together to power the engine to drive the wheels. With so many parts working together, this can lead to your transmission needing special attention.

Transmission maintenance leads to a longer vehicle life. Typically trouble with the transmission starts from overheating. Stop-and-go traffic, heavy pulling, struggling in the snow, hot weather, and racing can cause your transmission to overheat. At higher temperatures the transmission fluid burns. Your vehicle loses lubrication and deposits inside the transmission increase. We recommend that you take your vehicle to a service technician as soon as you believe your vehicle is having transmission problems.

How to Know If Your Transmission Is Failing

It is actually quite common for vehicle owners to overlook a damaged or malfunctioning transmission. This is why we here at Performance Auto Center believe it is important to have your vehicle inspected regularly and know the warning signs of a bad transmission. If you are noticing any of the following issues with your car, we recommend contacting us as soon as possible:

  • Slipping gears when shifting
  • Strange smells from your vehicle
  • Shifting gears feels rough
  • Leaking transmission fluid
  • Grinding sounds or other strange noises
  • Transmission light is on

These are a few of the more obvious signs that you are having issues with your transmission. However, you can avoid costly repairs by making sure your transmission is always in top shape with regularly scheduled maintenance. Contact us today to schedule your check-up.

To prevent your transmission from damage:

  1. Check your parking space for leaks regularly. If you notice fluid deposits under your car, have one of our technicians inspect it right away.
  2. Check the transmission fluid levels and condition. Change it when necessary.
  3. Make sure you use the correct transmission fluid as specified in your owner's manual.
  4. Make sure to stop your vehicle before shifting into reverse or park.
  5. Always hold the brakes down when shifting from park.

Paying attention to your transmission will help increase the lifespan of your vehicle, save money on costly repairs, ensure smooth shifting, extend your transmission fluid's life, and help prevent leaks.
