Transmissions rarely go out without a warning. Typically it takes a while, during which time there will be observable symptoms. Sometimes it’s an easy fix and sometimes it isn’t, but it’s always better to catch an issue and get it repaired as soon as possible. Florida Tractor Repair, Inc in Hampton has provided you with a few things to watch out for.

Slipping while driving

If your transmission is slipping under acceleration, when it shifts, or while driving down the road, you’ll probably notice. There will be times when it sounds like the truck is falling intermittently in and out of neutral, or shifting erratically. Most likely, this is due to low transmission fluid or a bad sensor, but it could also mean the clutch discs inside your transmission are worn out. Driving on low fluid exacerbates the problem, but if your transmission is still slipping with correct fluid levels and no engine codes are being thrown, it’s definitely time to have it looked at.

Hesitation when shifting into gear

You may notice that when you put your vehicle into reverse or drive, it takes a moment for the transmission to engage. Typically this symptom is more apparent on a cold start, after the vehicle has completely cooled down. In the beginning, your transmission may only do this once a day, the first time you shift it into gear in the morning. A transmission can last a long time if it is in the early stages of failure, but it will get worse. The longer you let it slip, the more damage your transmission will sustain. This issue can also be caused by low fluid, so be sure to check that first; if that isn’t the case, however, you should seek professional advice soon.

Various howling/grinding noises

There are many different sounds a failing transmission can make, but they will all be some variation of metal on metal scraping or whining sounds. This indicates bad bearings, a failing torque converter, broken or improperly adjusted bands, or other serious problems. If your transmission is making any noises it shouldn’t, have it inspected before it gets worse, or destroys other parts of the transmission.

If you notice your transmission is behaving strangely, it needs to be fixed. The symptoms described here are indicators of serious and imminent transmission problems, and if any of them apply to your truck, don’t hesitate to have your it looked at. Our expert technicians at Florida Tractor Repair, Inc will be more than happy to take a look, and get it fixed. Call or drop in today!
