The transmission converts speeds and torques along the drivetrain and maximizes the efficiency of the engine. The transmission is connected to the back of the engine, sending power to the drive wheels which allow the engine to operate in a range of speeds and also contains planetary gearsets which are in charge of providing different gear ratios. The vehicle is able to move forward, stay in neutral or park.

What can go wrong?

The transmission is a vital piece of equipment to your vehicle and if it fails, your vehicle becomes completely useless. Common problems within the transmission can occur which range from fluid leaks, clutch problems (if you drive a standard), torque converter begins to break down or solenoid problems which controls how the transmission fluid travels. Severe damage can occur if not maintained properly.

What can you do?

Other than following the proper maintenance schedule provided by your service advisor or your owner's manual, you can watch for leaks or stains that occur underneath your vehicle. If you see a persistent red oil leak, take your vehicle to your service advisor immediately to avoid more damage. Check the colour of the transmission fluid to see if it has become clouded or muddy as well as the smell; if there is a burned odor, the transmission should be drained and refilled by a professional.
