Why Won't My Vehicle Shift Gears?

Shifting gears might not be something you think about if you drive a car with an automatic transmission in San Jose. If you drive a manual, on the other hand, you need to shift gears yourself. A faulty transmission can make it difficult or even impossible to switch to the right gear and stay there, and it might rattle and grind your vehicle as well. If you’re having gear troubles, it’s a good idea to check with your transmission shop to get to the root of the problem. Keep reading if you’re wondering why your vehicle won’t shift gears.

Failing to shift gears, slipping out of gear, and smelling a burning aroma are all possible symptoms of a transmission problem, but what causes the problem? If you can’t shift gears and you notice a burning scent, your transmission could be overheating. This may happen if your transmission fluid is low or not at the right viscosity, and the fluid will continue to burn as the transmission gets hotter. Transmission fluid lubricates the system and cools it down, so the problem can develop quickly if you don’t fill it back up with the right type of fluid.
