Here are some surefire signs you need a new transmission.

  1. Rough Shifts

If your car makes a “thud” sound every time you shift gears, it’s likely a problem with your transmission.

  1. Transmission Slipping

This occurs when you’re driving in one gear and suddenly it switches without warning. Other signs of transmission slipping include your car feeling like it’s suddenly underpowered.

  1. Fluid Leaks

If you notice leakage spots along your driveway or on the floor of your garage, this means you probably need to have your transmission checked. It often leaks either a bright red, dark red or brown color.

  1. Delayed Engagement

There might be a delay before your car engages into drive from park. If your car is revving without moving forward, this is a sign of delayed engagement.

  1. Transmission Warning Lights

If any of the above signs occur at the same time as a “check engine light,” your best bet is to take it into a professional to get their opinion.
