Is your transmission slipping?

April 21st, 2015

Q: What does it feel like when my transmission is "slipping" and what should I do if it is? - Shawn

A: Hi Shawn, 

A transmission slip occurs when the engine revs during a gear change, your vehicle is taking too much time to coast, or there is a delay in acceleration. Another sign of transmission problems is if your RMP gauge goes up to or above 3,500. One simple cause for a malfunctioning transmission is that your vehicle may be low on automatic transmission fluid. If you have checked your fluid and it is low, then fill it with enough fluid. If your vehicle has enough fluid, you will need to bring your car into Tire Pros of Frederick to a certified service technician for a proper diagnosis.
