Transmission Repair Near Me


To help move the car forward, you need a working transmission. If there’s any issue with it, you won’t be able to get around Stratham, Portsmouth, or Exeter.

That’s why we created this guide on transmission repair. We’ll explain what the transmission is, plus signs that indicate yours needs to be repaired or replaced. Read all about it below and contact our service or parts center at BMW of Stratham if you have any questions.

Transmission

The transmission sends the right amount of power to the wheels to drive at any given speed. It works similarly to a bicycle. If a bike chain isn’t on, the bike won’t work. If it’s in too high of a gear, you’ll having trouble going from a complete stop.

There are two types of transmissions: manual and automatic. If you drive a manual car, you push the clutch down to disconnect the engine and transmission. After adjusting to a new gear, you’ll release the clutch and drive off. Whereas in an automatic car, the transmission will do all that work for you.

No matter which transmission your car is equipped with, it must be well-maintained. If not, you’ll lose fuel economy, or you may not be able to drive the car at all.

Transmission Parts

There are hundreds of parts inside a transmission, working together to keep the car moving. Transmission fluid is what keeps those parts cool and lubricated, so they can do their job properly. The fluid will prevent buildup in the transmission, as well.

Transmission fluid needs to get changed regularly. Otherwise, you’re going to have a hard time shifting gears, a loss of acceleration, or possibly transmission failure.

So, when exactly do you need to get a transmission fluid change? That all depends on your car. Some need it every 30,000 miles, while others can wait as long as 100,000 miles.

To get the exact answer, check your owner’s manual. Keep in mind that the number may vary based on your driving patterns. If you’re in constant stop-and-go traffic, or if you often accelerate hard, then the transmission fluid may have to get replaced more often.

Transmission Fluid And Delay

There are several warning signs that’ll determine if your transmission needs to be repaired or replaced.

If you see fluid under the car, then the transmission may be leaking. A loose transmission pan, worn seals or gaskets, or damaged bell housings may result in a leaking transmission.

The fluid usually has a slightly sweet or tart odor. If you notice a burnt smell, then the transmission could be burning. If the transmission overheats, it could break down completely, resulting in you needing a brand new one.

Another sign to look out for is a delay in movement. A transmission was designed to seamlessly go into the correct gear every time. If there’s any type of delay when you shift gears in a manual or automatic, then there’s an issue that needs to be addressed as soon as possible.
