The transmission of a car is basically exactly what it’s named after. The transmission “transmits” power from the engine to the wheels. Without your transmission, your car is no more powerful than Fred Flintstone’s ride. If you live in St. Paul, MN and you think your transmission is in need of repair, come see the professionals at St. Paul Automotive.
What is Your Transmission?
Transmission systems are quite fascinating, if you are asking a car mechanic guru. A transmission has the capacity to convert mechanical energy and make a car actually go! Not only does it produce forced energy, it makes drivers capable of controlling the force. Through the transmission, we can start our cars, press our foot to the pedal, allow the gas to flow through the engine and signal the wheels to turn, all with one flick of the foot. The transmission is much like the heart of a human. It’s a power source. It’s a necessity.
Signs of a Failing Transmission
It’s important to know when to bring your vehicle to us. In the event that your vehicle is leaking fluid, grinding or shaking, your engine light comes on, you are having trouble shifting gears, you smell something burning or you are having a nosy sound even in neutral, it may be your transmission. None of these signs and symptoms are normal parts of driving. When this happens, it’s important to get to us right away. These are all serious warning signs that your transmission may need to be repaired.
