What Does the Transmission Do?

Your vehicle’s transmission transfers power from the engine to the wheels. Whenever you come to a stop on a road in Costa Mesa, the transmission disconnects the engine from the wheels, which allows the engine to idle while the wheels aren’t actually moving. The transmission also allows your car to speed up and slow down as you drive.

Common Warning Signs That You Need Transmission Repair

If you suspect a problem with your transmission, it’s always best to act quickly to seek repairs near Huntington Beach. To avoid a transmission overhaul, replacement, and heavy repair costs, be sure to watch for any of the following warning signs:

  • Leaking Fluid: Leaking transmission fluid is a surefire red flag and points to a variety of potential problems, such as a worn axle or an unbalanced drive shaft.
  • Burning Smell: Like motor oil, transmission oil keeps the moving parts of the machine lubricated and prevents overheating. If you notice a slightly sweet or burning smell, you may be due for transmission work or Mercedes-Benz synthetic motor oil replacement.
  • Strange Sounds: Malfunctioning transmissions tend to be very loud during gear changes. Manual transmissions make a rickety or mechanical noise, while automatic transmissions usually emit a loud hum or buzz.
  • Delayed Shifting: Mercedes-Benz transmissions are designed to effortlessly glide from one gear to the next. If you are experiencing Mercedes-Benz gear shift problems and your transmission stalls during gear shifting, there’s certainly a larger problem at play.

If you experience any of these issues or more, schedule service at Fletcher Jones Motorcars immediately.

What Does Transmission Service Include?

Keeping the transmission serviced properly can save Laguna Beach drivers from costly repairs. If your vehicle is due for a transmission service, our Mercedes-Benz master-certified technicians can ensure that your vehicle runs smoothly for many miles to come by performing the following:

  • Transmission pan and torque converter drained of oil
  • Transmission pan removed, inspected, and cleaned
  • Transmission filter and pan gasket replaced
  • Transmission refilled with appropriate oil

How Often Should You Check Your Transmission Fluid?

Transmission gears distribute power from the engine to drive the wheels, shifting automatically to provide the best power and efficiency for your driving speed. Checking the transmission fluid level on a regular basis will preserve the life of your vehicle’s transmission. Like most fluids in your vehicle, you should check your Mercedes-Benz vehicle’s transmission fluid at least once a month to keep an eye on its overall health.
