How will you know when your Merrillville, IN-area vehicle requires transmission replacement? To be sure, you should allow the ASE Certified technicians of Midwest Auto Care & Transmission Center take an expert look at your vehicle first. However, here are some common signs that your transmission requires replacement sooner rather than later:

  • The transmission fluid smells burnt, and the color of the fluid is dark.
  • There are fine metal particles settling in the bottom of your vehicle’s oil pan.
  • It’s either hard for you to shift gears, or you can’t shift the gears at all.
  • It takes more than one second to shift into Drive or Reverse from Park.
  • Your transmission jerks or slips between shifts.

If these signs are showing up in your vehicle, come in and see us for an auto repair service at our Merrillville or Lake Station locations for a thorough transmission inspection.
