Transmission failure rarely happens out of the blue - there’s a good chance a transmission will give you a good amount of warning before kicking the bucket. Here are some things you can watch out for, from American Auto Clinic in Albuquerque, NM.

Slipping - If your transmission is slipping, you have a problem that needs to be addressed. Even letting the transmission slip once can cause damage, so obviously if you're experiencing this issue, you need to have it looked into ASAP. Don’t assume the transmission is done for and opt to drive it until it dies - more often than not, a simple adjustment, sensor, or solenoid replacement is all that stands in the way of keeping your transmission happily on the road, for years to come.

Erratic Shifting - If your car, truck, or SUV shifts too late, shifts too soon, or cycles through gears at random or the wrong time, damage can easily occur. Stress and wear are applied at the wrong moments, not only preventing smooth driving but putting your transmission’s internals under immense strain in the process. Again, a sensor or solenoid may be to blame, or something is out of adjustment. A simple solution is probably all you need - don’t wait until it’s too late.

Late or No Shifting - If your transmission skips gears, hesitates before shifting into drive or reverse, or won’t shift past a certain gear, get the issue taken care of before real damage occurs. A simple filter change or adjustment may be all that’s necessary to save your transmission from the scrap pile.

Remember, transmission issues compound quickly. An easy fix can go to irreparable damage a lot faster than you might think, even on the same trip, in some cases. Do yourself and your car a favor, and have transmission issues rectified immediately.
