How do you know it’s time to visit a transmission repair shop

Is your vehicle having trouble shifting into gear or staying there? Are you hearing unusual noises, noticing fluid leaks, or smelling burning odors? These signs and others can indicate a need for an automatic transmission service that you don’t want to put-off. With proper maintenance and expert mechanics, a small transmission problem can be stopped from developing into a larger one.

 

If you begin noticing these signs or have other concerns about your transmission, give Hoffmaster’s Auto Care in Silver Spring a call to bring your vehicle in for transmission repairs and diagnostics. We’re experienced in both manual or automatic transmission, with our vehicles spanning various makes, models, and years.

Signs you may be experiencing transmission issues:

  • Burning smells or similar odors
  • Leaking fluid
  • Whining sounds from the engine

A Trusted transmission shop to handle clutch repairs

Transmission problems don’t immediately indicate a need for a complete transmission replacement or lengthy repair. Other, related issues can be solved at a lower cost and in a faster time frame. Hoffmaster’s Auto Care provides not only transmission maintenance, but driveline maintenance and repairs, clutch repairs, and a look at the transmission filter and transmission fluid exchanges.

 

A transmission fluid leak or transmission filter exchange can help with transmission problems and restore power to the vehicle. Many signs of a clogged filter are the same signs you notice when you’re having transmission issues in general: rattling or whining noises, burning odors, gear shifting delays, or fluid leaks.

 

For manual transmissions, keeping an eye on the clutch’s maintenance is vital. Let Hoffmaster’s Auto Car handle your clutch repairs if you’re noticing:

 

  • Clutch pedal is loose, spongy, or sticky when pressed
  • Unusual noises when pressed, like squeaks or grumbles
  • Poor acceleration but the engine revs
  • Shifting gear difficulties
  • A loss of acceleration or “slipping” gears
  • Grinding noises

A Local MD transmission mechanic for trustworthy transmission cost

When people hear about transmission repairs, the cost can be the first and then only factor they consider. It’s unwise to quote an exact price before evaluating the interior of an engine, but there are general price ranges to be expected. Minor transmission repairs, like a clutch replacement or transmission filter exchange run a few hundred dollars. The entire replacement of a transmission however, or lengthy transmission repairs, can be upwards of a couple of thousand dollars when calculating parts, labor, and length of repairs.

 

Consulting with Hoffmaster’s Auto Care transmission mechanics ensures you get a reliable quote for exactly what troubles your car is having. Our experts will be upfront about the issues you are facing and discuss all options for manual and auto transmission repair and the pros and cons of each service. At the end of the day, our attention is on the safety and performance of your vehicle.
