The Signs & Symptoms
Time to Get Transmission Serviced

A transmission brings the power from the engine to the drive wheels through a series of gear sets and friction devices. The fact is that the transmission is the most complex component in your automobile. It may have as many as 1,000 parts, each having to function perfectly with the others in order to work properly.

Transmission problems can take several forms. Each symptom may have a number of possible causes, some requiring extensive repairs while others need only an adjustment or minor service.
