Main Signs of a Faulty Transmission or Gearbox​

Transmission replacement is quite costly. However, it can be your best option, as these problems can cause significant damage to the vehicle’s transmission. So, how do you know if you need your transmission to be replaced?

The signs that there are issues with your gearbox or transmission are as follows:


A car transmission fluid leak is characterized by a grinding noise or your car gears slipping continuously. It can reduce the efficiency of the transmission operation and may cause damage to your entire car. Transmission fluid is an important lubricant that helps prevent wear and tear on the transmission components. It can easily be detected since you can smell petroleum. Then, you will notice a pool of fluid under your car.

Strange noises or vibrations

The transmission is one common culprit for nasty noises. Whether you drive a manual transmission or automatic transmission vehicle, there are some sounds you shouldn’t hear. Are you hearing strange noises like grinding when you shift gears or whining, which is noticeable when you drive at higher speeds? It is a transmission problem when it gets louder or higher pitched as you accelerate; clunking – is noticeable as you accelerate or decelerate. Gurgling can sometimes go unnoticed, but it can happen when there is insufficient transmission fluid and air bubbles become trapped in the transmission fluid lines. In this case, your torque converters need inspection and repair. Torque converters offer a good balance between fuel efficiency and performance. The repair may include clutch adjustment. Bring your car to us immediately, so we can attend to this problem promptly and avoid the worst scenario.

Gears & Transmission Slipping

Slipping can occur due to a lack of transmission fluid, damaged gears, or worn-out clutch plates. It can also occur when the transmission fails to maintain a consistent gear and tends to jump to the next one. Worn-out car parts need replacement.

The Car Doesn’t Engage or Respond Promptly When in Gear

Did you experience putting your car into drive or reverse and there is a delayed reaction? Often this is due to low transmission fluid levels or clutch problems. It could also be because the protective properties of your fluid have thickened and degraded. This signals that you need a fluid exchange. More frequent and longer delay in automatic transmission is a cause for concern. Sometimes, resetting the car's computer can do the trick. Disconnect the battery for 30 minutes for it to reset. If it doesn't work, it means the car is facing a serious problem. Time to bring it to Orange Auto for immediate attention.

Transmission Overheating

An overheated transmission means there is already internal damage or a transmission leak. It can also be an indication of a low fluid level or an old/dirty fluid running within the system. Or sometimes, overheating can also be caused by too much fluid in the system. This gearbox problem can be avoided by using the right and appropriate amount of car fluid. It's important to schedule regular maintenance checks by an authorized mechanic to avoid these problems. Our home mechanic may perform an engine diagnostic test to check why your engine is not functioning properly.
