Transmission problems may arise slowly, but if left alone they can progress into a dangerous situation for you, any passengers on board, and everyone else on the road. In the beginning you may take note of your transmission slipping, difficulty putting your car into reverse, hesitation when changing gears, and a delay in acceleration. These warning signs may seem small until they morph into transmission lag which indicates that total failure of the system is on the horizon.

If transmission lag sets in, the car will lurch forward after coming to a complete stop and the driver presses the gas again. The reason this is so dangerous is because the vehicle could lurch forward and hit another car, or it could stall while turning and be hit by oncoming traffic. Don’t take this risk; in fact, don’t even let your car reach this point- come into Garber Chevrolet Linwood at the first sign of a problem and let us heal your transmission.[/vc_column_text][vc_separator border_width=”2″][vc_empty_space height=”12px”][vc_btn title=”View All Our Services” style=”custom” custom_background=”#0185cf” custom_text=”#ffffff” size=”lg” align=”left” i_align=”right” i_icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-arrow-circle-right” link=”url:%2Fall-auto-repair-services%2F|||” add_icon=”true”][vc_btn title=”View Current Specials & Deals” style=”outline-custom” outline_custom_color=”#000000″ outline_custom_hover_background=”#000000″ outline_custom_hover_text=”#ffffff” align=”left” link=”url:%2Fservice%2Fservice-specials%2F|||”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”4/6″][vc_separator border_width=”2″][vc_column_text]

Transmission FAQ’s—

[/vc_column_text][vc_tta_accordion style=”modern” active_section=”” collapsible_all=”true”][vc_tta_section title=”How can I tell if my transmission’s condition is deteriorating?” tab_id=”transmission-condition”][vc_column_text]Some common telltale signs include:

  • Hesitation when switching gears
  • A burning smell
  • If there are fluids leaking
  • If gears are slipping
  • A lack of response when shifting into another gear

[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=”What is a “transmission slip”?” tab_id=”transmission-slip”][vc_column_text]If you shift your vehicle or attempt to move it forward from a stopped position, signs of a transmission slip include: hesitation to react, revving more than normal, or struggle to move at all. If you are experiencing any of these warning signs, contact a technician at Garber Chevrolet Linwood as soon as possible to have an inspection completed; if you wait, the cost of future transmission repairs could skyrocket.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=”I’ve noticed a small amount of fluid underneath my car- how do I know if it’s transmission fluid? And, is it safe to drive?” tab_id=”liquid-underneath-my-car”][vc_column_text]Transmission fluid will generally be a variation of red or pink in color. That being said, if you think your transmission fluid may be leaking, we advise driving right to the service center at Garber Chevrolet Linwood. The vehicle should not be driven any further than bringing it in to be serviced, and you may even want to get it towed; you could potentially get stranded or cause a lot of damage to internal parts of the transmission.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=”What can I do to keep my transmission working properly?” tab_id=”what-can-i-do”][vc_column_text]There are a few things you can do, including:

  • Make certain that the transmission always has enough fluid.
  • When you get an oil change, have the technician check your transmission fluid to make sure it is filled, clean, and free of leaks.
  • Have the transmission fluid replaced on schedule.

Everything you need to know about transmissions—

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]The gear shift within a vehicle is likely the most commonly known part of the transmission. Park, Reverse, Neutral, Drive, Low (P-R-N-D-L) are the selections that we have all learned how to use as drivers, which are directly connected to the transmission. These gear options are found in an automatic transmission, which is the most common type in the United States.

However, other forms of transmissions are available in passenger cars and trucks, such as a manual transmission. This option allows the driver to do the shifting themselves, rather than the system performing the shifts automatically. A manual transmission is particularly desired by drivers who command an enthusiast persona or are simply wanting to preserve fuel.

Another type is a CVT, or Continuously Variable Transmission, which technically does not have gears at all; rather, it’s like having one magical gear that’s variable across all driving situations. This transmission allows for maximum efficiency or performance, depending on how the CVT is applied to the vehicle’s mechanics. Regardless of the type of transmission your vehicle uses, if you want seamless shifting on every trip you take, look no further than Garber Chevrolet Linwood for transmission service.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row bg_type=”bg_color” ult_hide_row=”ult_hide_row_value” ult_hide_row_mobile=”mobile” ult_hide_row_mobile_large=”xl_mobile” css=”.vc_custom_1471531929672{padding-right: 75px !important;padding-left: 75px !important;}”][vc_column][vc_empty_space height=”12px”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row full_width=”stretch_row” css=”.vc_custom_1472582146331{padding-top: 32px !important;padding-bottom: 64px !important;background-image: url(https://di-uploads-pod5.s3.amazonaws.com/rogermcintoshchevy/uploads/2016/08/coupons-specials-parallax.jpg?id=1353) !important;background-position: center !important;background-repeat: no-repeat !important;background-size: cover !important;}”][vc_column][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/6″][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”2/3″ css=”.vc_custom_1471531782831{padding-top: 32px !important;padding-bottom: 32px !important;}”][vc_icon icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-tags” color=”white” size=”xl” align=”center” css=”.vc_custom_1471274959203{padding-bottom: 0px !important;}”][vc_custom_heading text=”Exclusive Coupons & Specials” font_container=”tag:h2|font_size:36px|text_align:center|color:%23ffffff” google_fonts=”font_family:Raleway%3A100%2C200%2C300%2Cregular%2C500%2C600%2C700%2C800%2C900|font_style:800%20bold%20regular%3A800%3Anormal”][vc_column_text]
