Transmission Repair in Richmond, VA

What does a transmission do?

Transmissions are one of the most important parts of your vehicle. Whether your vehicle has an automatic transmission or a manual transmission, this component is what makes your car move forward. The transmission works to send the power from the internal combustion engine to the wheels. There are two different types of transmissions that work differently:

Automatic transmission

  • Automatic transmissions shift gears by themselves based on throttle response, vehicle load weight, and speed.
  • CVTs, or continuously variable transmissions, are newer transmissions used in smaller cars and hybrid vehicles. Instead of using gears, they use a pulley system to give power to the wheels.
  • Gone are the days of automatic transmissions with a dipstick. Auto Rescue has the tools and expertise to check your fluid level and condition.

Manual transmission

Manual transmission requires the driver to use the clutch and gear shift to change the gears manually, depending on the speed and acceleration of the vehicle.

Signs you may need a transmission repair

There are many different signs that there are issues with your vehicle’s transmission. If you experience any of these problems while driving your vehicle, come to Auto Rescue where our technicians can properly diagnose and treat it.

  • Grinding when changing gears: If you are changing gears in your manual transmission and you notice a grinding noise, there is some underlying issue that needs to be looked at. For automatic transmissions, if you notice your vehicle shaking it is a sign that there is something wrong with the gears.
  • Problems with shifting gears: A normal transmission allows you to change gears smoothly without any difficulty. If there is any hesitation, jerking, and the gears change by itself, the transmission needs to be fixed.
  • Unusual noises and clunks: If you put your vehicle in neutral and there are any excessive noises and clunking noises, come to Auto Rescue in Richmond where our technicians can properly examine your transmission.
  • Burnt smell: If the transmission fluid looks burnt and/or has a burnt smell to it, there is something wrong with the fluid. Friction from the gears can cause a burnt smell to occur.
  • Leaking transmission fluid: Transmission fluids are typically red. If you notice a red fluid leaking underneath your vehicle, you need to get your transmission repaired as soon as possible.
