Transmission slippage can be caused by a variety of factors that are sometimes difficult to pin down. From American Auto Clinic in Albuquerque, NM, here’s a rundown of the more common issues that may cause a transmission to slip.
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.
