What if my transmission is slipping?

Slipping transmissions occur when you’re driving and your engine revs as if the gears were not engaged. When they are engaged and the response in shifting is slower this is also slipping. Sometimes your transmission will slip and you may even hear strange sounds or feel a clunk coming from the bottom. Bring your car into Our Port St. Lucie Transmission Repair Shop for a free diagnosis on your transmission as soon as possible to prevent further damage.

The most common repairs for slipping transmissions are replacing the worn out parts. Or you may just need more fluid as the system does not have enough hydraulic pressure to engage the gears efficiently.

What if transmission is slipping

Automatic transmission have bands that link the internal gears together which become worn out and often need replacing to fix the slipping transmission problem. Adjustments probably won’t fix the problem, so replacing these transmission bands needs to be done to avoid damage to the engine.

Another cause of slipping can be that the teeth on your gears are worn out and cannot grip each.

Another reason gears can slip is bad solenoids because there are valves that are electro hydraulic and controls the fluid running throughout your transmission's system. What happens is that the fluid can't get to where it needs to make the transmission function effectively. The PCM and computer diagnostics will provide the evidence we need to diagnose it.

A malfunctioning torque converter can cause a vibration in slipping transmissions. The right amount of ATF doesn’t pass through your transmission causing slipping and also poor acceleration. There can be several issues involved with the torque converter such as needle bearings, seals, and solenoids, so this must be diagnosed by our experienced technicians.

A very common cause of slipping transmissions are damaged or worn out clutch plates which are in many parts of the transmission. Bring your vehicle in for a free diagnosis at A One Transmission Repair Shop in Port St. Lucie so we can correct any minor problems and get you back on the road again!
