Jacksonville Automatic Transmission Problems


Automatic Transmission: Trouble Shifting Gears


Your automobile may have a transmission problem if:

  • Your transmission is not going into, or staying in gear
  • Shifting is harsh or delayed

This is a relatively common problem, and it could be caused by any of a number of possibilities:

  • An internal transmission repair may be necessary if parts within the transmission are worn or damaged
  • External controls for the transmission may simply need adjustment
  • External controls may need replacement
  • Electrical components may need adjustment or replacement

Because today’s automobiles, trucks and SUVs are controlled by computers, it takes a real transmission expert to properly diagnose your problem. These problems should not be ignored—the longer they continue, the more damage may be caused. Before your automobile becomes inoperative, take your automobile to the mechanics at Jacksonville AAMCO for an External Diagnostic Service.

Automatic Transmission: Transmission Seems To Be Slipping


If the transmission slips between gear changes, this is likely a transmission problem—a transmission is designed to hold effortlessly in each gear at predetermined speeds. If you move the selector for your automatic transmission to “Drive” and the engine seems to be racing ahead faster than the transmission, that is another common symptom of a transmission problem. Trained transmission mechanics at AAMCO auto repair shops can help determine which of the following possibilities could be causing the problem:

  • An internal transmission repair may be necessary if parts within the transmission are worn or damaged
  • External controls for the transmission may simply need replacement or adjustment
  • Electrical controls or components may need adjustment or replacement
  • The transmission fluid level may be low, or there is insufficient fluid pressure

The right diagnosis can save you time and potentially a substantial amount of money. These problems require immediate attention—the longer they continue, the more damage may be caused.

Automatic Transmission: Noise In The Transmission


If you hear noise coming from your automobile’s transmission, it may indicate that transmission parts are hitting together abnormally. Normally-functioning transmissions are virtually free of noise, when clean transmission fluid is lubricating the moving parts.

Tracking down the source of the noise can be complicated. Unlike many other repair facilities, Jacksonville AAMCO Center mechanics are mechanics in all systems in your automobile, truck, and SUV and perform both external transmission diagnostics and a complete automobile check. So they know the difference between a simple exhaust problem causing noises—and a potentially significant transmission problem.

Your automobile may very likely have a transmission problem if:

  • There is buzzing or any other noise from the transmission
  • If your automobile is a four-wheel drive, there is a clicking noise in the transmission while it is in 4-wheel drive mode
  • There is a clunking from under the automobile when you change gears

Trained transmission mechanics at Jacksonville AAMCO Centers can help determine if it even is a transmission problem, and which of the following possibilities could be causing the problem:

  • An internal transmission repair may be necessary if parts within the transmission are worn or damaged The transmission fluid is low, dirty, or the incorrect type Electrical components or external controls for the transmission may simply need adjustment or replacement.

Take your automobile, truck or SUV to the mechanics at Jacksonville AAMCO for an External Diagnostic Service. Our certified mechanics will help get to the bottom of your problems and get your automobile back on the road as soon as possible.

Automatic Transmission: Transmission Fluid Leaking


A transmission fluid leak is not something to ignore. The transmission fluid serves several purposes of critical importance to the life of your transmission:

  • The fluid transfers power from the engine to the transmission, and provides the necessary pressure to operate the transmission.
  • Transmission fluid also cools and lubricates the transmission.

As the amount of transmission fluid goes down, the ability to operate and keep the transmission cool is reduced. Overheating quickly causes damage to a transmission that may ultimately result in the need for a costly repair.

Leaks can occur from several different areas external to the transmission, or they may be internal to the transmission. The repairs required could be relatively minor, or the signs could point to a major problem. It takes an expert to tell.

Regardless of what the source of the leak is, it requires immediate attention by a Jacksonville AAMCO mechanic. The longer the leaks continue, the more damage that may result. Trust the expert transmission mechanics at Jacksonville AAMCO to get you and your automobile back on the road as soon as possible.

Automatic Transmission: Check Engine Light


The CHECK ENGINE LIGHT on your instrument panel can light up for a wide variety of reasons, often related to emissions, the engine, or the transmission. We urge you not to ignore the CHECK ENGINE LIGHT when it illuminates, but to have your automobile checked out. According to a national survey, more than one in ten drivers admit they drive with the CHECK ENGINE LIGHT on—approximately 20 million automobiles per week.

There could be a simple solution, or it could be a warning sign of a much more severe condition. Jacksonville AAMCO Centers can diagnose whatever the problem may be.
