Trouble Shifting Gears

Your vehicle likely has a transmission (or clutch) problem if:

  • Your transmission is not going into, or staying in gear
  • Shifting is difficult or delayed
  • Your gears are grinding
  • The clutch pedal on your manual transmission is not working properly

The problem may be one of several possibilities:

  • External controls need adjustment
  • External controls need replacement
  • Electrical components need adjustment or replacement
  • In an automatic transmission, the transmission computer may need replacement
  • An internal, or major repair, may be necessary (if parts within the transmission have been damaged)

Regardless of the cause, transmission problems require immediate attention. The longer they are allowed to continue, the more damage they may cause. Before your vehicle becomes inoperative, take your car to the experts at AAMCO for an External Diagnostic Service. Our certified transmission technicians will help get your vehicle back on the road as soon as possible.
