Transmission Slips Could Slide You Right Off The Road

You’ve likely encountered someone talking about a car’s transmission that’s “slipping”. What does that mean, why does it do it, and where do you go from here? At Overley Automotive in Louisville, KY, our trained staff has the answers to get you safely back on the road.

Transmission slippage is certainly one of the most dreaded issues a truck’s transmission can develop. It is definitely an indicator that something is wrong. While it doesn’t necessarily mean your vehicle’s transmission needs to be replaced, it certainly could.

 

A car’s transmission feels like it “slips” either when you hit the truck’s gas or are trying to hold a steady speed and notice the revs start creeping up and falling back down as the transmission fights to stay engaged. Shifting gears could cause harsh noises, delays in acceleration and high RPMs. You could also see the inability to reverse your car, unusual or burnt smells or even a check engine light.

 

Slippage can also happen between gears, as the transmission struggles to shift or maintain a gear. There are a variety of reasons that can cause this, and all of them should be taken care of immediately to avoid further damage to your SUV or truck. Our technicians at Overley Automotive can get you fixed up and ready to go.

 

With modern transmissions, slippage can be the result of a minute maladjustment, failed electronic component, worn-out internals or many other reasons. At Overley Automotive, we’ll take a look at some of the non-fatal issues your truck’s transmission may have that can be repaired to get you back in shape.
