Trying to drive without a fully functioning transmission is like trying to watch TV without any electricity; you aren’t going to get very far. Each part of your car serves a very specific purpose, and the transmission in particular is responsible for directing the right amount of power to each wheel. It’s critical to recognize the signs of a failing transmission and be prepared to fix it as soon as possible.

Fluid Problems

The most direct way to identify that your transmission needs professional attention is the presence of leaking transmission fluid. This fluid is bright red and is absolutely essential to your vehicle’s ability to shift gears and keep the wheels turning. Regular motor oil is consumed during driving, but transmission fluid is not, so any shortage of transmission fluid can probably be traced back to a leak. Worn axles, seals, and gaskets can all cause transmission fluid to leak, as can damaged bell housings and a loose transmission pan. Since a transmission fluid leak has the potential to lead to a huge problem, seek mechanical attention immediately.

50531184 - crashed carCan you change your own oil, repair a fender, or replace a flat tire? Some handy drivers can, but the majority of people behind the wheel rely on the expertise of mechanics to handle these problems for them. However, it’s unfortunately too easy to accidentally place your car in the hands of a mechanic who doesn’t have the right qualifications to be dealing with the vehicle that you use to get around each day. This is exactly why the National Institute of Automotive Service Excellence (ASE), founded in 1972, is dedicated to improving the quality of automotive service and repair by testing and certifying automotive technicians.

The tires in particular require specific and regular attention in order to maximize a vehicle’s performance. By ensuring that your tire pressure enjoys regular maintenance, you can not only save money and gas, but help your car remain safer.

shifterAuto recalls have been occurring for years, but if you’ve never been personally impacted by a recall, you may not be sure how to handle it when your car does become part of the next recall announcement. Considering the fact that the reason for a recall may impact your safety and complicate your ability to pursue legal action against your car manufacturer in the event of an accident, it is very important to understand the implications of a recall and be prepared to act accordingly.

Defining a Car Recall

Just like Perdue Chicken recently recalled a number of its chicken products due to concerns of contamination based upon reports of customers falling ill, an automobile recall is announced anytime the car manufacturer or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) determines that a specific car model has a defect that impacts safety or restricts compliance with federal safety standards. The recall is meant to inform drivers that their cars must receive service attention to repair or replace the defect in question. Take note that the majority of car recalls do not result in the entire vehicle being replaced.
