Your vehicle delivers power from the engine to the wheels; it transmits this power through the transmission. It’s a series of gears that connect the drivetrain to the engine. If something is wrong with your transmission, it will not be able to reliably transmit engine power to the wheels. That could mean that your car no longer runs reliably, or that the car won’t even move at all. If you are fortunate, it will only affect one gear and you’ll be able to avoid other problems. Either way, you need to have it repaired as soon as possible.
There are many problems that can occur in transfer cases and gearboxes in Kent.
- A transfer case is like a transmission, but it connects the transmission to the front wheels as well as the rear wheels in a four-wheel drive vehicle. Transfer case problems often look very similar to transmission problems.
- If you hear grinding when you switch gears or when your automatic transmission changes gears, you definitely have a problem.
- Another sign of a problem is a vehicle slipping out of gear. This will result in dropping into another gear or into neutral. It will be very noticeable if this happens.
How to Fix It
The transmission is one of the most complex parts of your vehicle, especially if you have an automatic transmission. You need to take it to a professional and have the transmission inspected. The transmission will need to be repaired or replaced by a professional, but only a professional will be able to make that determination.
