How Do You Know if You Have a Bad Transmission?

A transmission plays an important role in the operation of your car. And if the transmission goes, it can be an expensive problem to fix. Luckily, many cars give off warning signs that it needs repair before it completely dies. Unfortunately, many people have no idea what these warning signs are. If you don't know what the warning signs are, don't feel alone. I was once in the same position and ultimately, it caused me to have to replace the transmission in my car because I missed these signs. I created this website to help others identify when it needs to be repaired. If you notice any signs of a problematic transmission, head to a repair shop quickly to save yourself a lot of money!
