When you need a transmission repair, your vehicle will likely tell you with strange sounds and vibrations like shudders and clunks, and it may even smell odd. Any time your vehicle does something unusual or out of character, it’s a good idea to bring it to a mechanic any way, but transmission issues tend to be very obvious that something is wrong. Some transmission issues are even preventable by following the factory recommended maintenance schedule. We include an automatic transmission fluid check in our Multi-Point Preventative Maintenance Inspection which we perform with every repair. It is also in our VIP Oil Change!
