The car transmission is a complex mechanical system that helps to transmit power from the
engine to the driveshaft. It has many moving parts that create heat and friction causing more
wear in the transmission system.
Replacing or repairing the car transmission is stressful and inconvenient while on the hand you
will dig deep in your pocket. Therefore, it is recommended to adhere to maintenance procedures
that will help prevent problems and help your transmission perform better and last longer. The
transmission is very sensitive and will cause a lot of problems when removed and poorly
managed. Some of this problems include:
Humming and Clunking
This is unusual sound that you will hear from your car. This should be an alarm to have your car
diagnosed and if need be repaired sooner than later.
Sometimes when driving, the gear might refuse to change or shift from drive to park. This delay
is a great transmission concern.
If the car is not running smoothly and instead you get some jerking, shaking and/or grinding
sounds, it is an indication that the transmission gears have a problem.
Removing the transmission might lead to improper fitting which will cause the transmission fluid
to overheat and produce some burning smell.
When driving, different gears are engaged and the car should remain in that gear until a shift is
done. If you find out that the transmission is slipping in and out of gear while driving, you should
be concerned of your safety and take it to a garage.
This is experienced on manual cars where the clutch disk fails to disengage the flywheel on
pressing clutch pedal.
Noisy Transmission in Neutral
The noise in neutral mode is mostly not a great concern and an inexpensive solution could be
adding or changing some fluid. If it doesn’t work, some parts may be worn out needing repair
