Along with the engine, a car's transmission is one of its most complicated systems. Thankfully, drivers in the St. Louis, Chesterfield, Kirkwood, and Missouri areas don't have to know everything about their transmission to get quality service and transmission repair.

The team at Glendale Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram has put together this library to make sure you're well aware of what kind of care your transmission requires.

Why the Transmission Is So Important

Most people know that the transmission is a vital component, but they're not always sure why. The transmission's main functions are:

  • To transfer torque from the car's engine to its wheels.
  • To allow a vehicle to travel at varying speeds or shift gears.
  • To use the engine's power to move the car backward or forward.

Essentially, the transmission changes the engine's power into the torque that keeps your car moving. So, proper maintenance is crucial to continued transmission function.

When to Call for Service

Given that it's such a crucial component in any vehicle, your mechanic should be taking a look at the transmission every time they have your car, just to make sure everything is up to spec. However, if something goes wrong between visits, you may notice these key symptoms:

  • Shaking or grinding when switching gears
  • Frequent gear slippage
  • Leaking transmission fluid

If you notice any of these signs, you shouldn't delay. Transmission problems can snowball easily and end up costing you tons of money (or even the car itself).

As soon as you notice that something's off, you can give our service center a call. Our technicians are all highly skilled and have plenty of experience under their belts. The moment that your car starts acting up, contact them either online or over the phone to schedule an appointment.
