What if transmission is slipping?

Slipping transmissions are often noticed when you are driving and your engine revs as if the gears were not engaged. When they are actually engaged the response in shifting is slower or uneven. Sometimes your transmission will slip in and out of gears and you may even hear abnormal sounds or feel a thump coming from the bottom. Bring your car into Our Stuart Transmission Repair Shop for a free diagnosis on your transmission as soon as possible to prevent further damage if something is wrong.

The most common repairs for slipping transmissions are replacing worn out parts. If more fluid is needed in the transmission it means the system does not have enough hydraulic pressure to engage the gears efficiently.

What if transmission is slipping

Automatic transmissions have bands that link the internal gears together which become worn out over a period of time and often need replacing to correct the slipping transmission problem. Adjustments probably won’t fix the problem, so replacing these transmission bands needs to be done to avoid damage to the engine.

Another cause of slipping can be that the teeth on your gears are worn out and cannot grip each other causing slippage.

Another reason gears can slip is bad solenoids because they are valves that are electro hydraulic and controls the fluid running throughout your transmission's system. What happens is that the fluid can't get to where it needs to make the transmission function effectively. The PCM and computer diagnostics can show us if this is the problem with your vehicle.

A malfunctioning torque converter can cause a vibration in slipping transmissions. The correct amount of fluid doesn’t pass through your transmission causing slipping and also poor acceleration and gas mileage. There can be several issues involved with the torque converter such as needle bearings, seals, and solenoids, so this must be diagnosed by our experienced technicians.

A very common cause of slipping transmissions are damaged or worn out clutch plates which are in many parts of the transmission.
