One of the most critical components in your vehicle's powertrain is its transmission. A transmission helps your engine run more efficiently and smoothly.

Here are five signs that you need some service done on your transmission. Most of these issues can apply to both manual and automatic transmissions. Make sure your book an appointment here at Titus-Will Ford so we can take care of your vehicle's transmission.

1.   Shaking. If you feel shaking as your car tries to shift transmission gears, this could mean your transmission fluid is running low or there is another serious problem.

2.   Noises. Shift your car into neutral and listen to the sounds it makes. Do you hear any grinding, whining, or ticking? These kinds of noises can be a big problem, especially when sitting in neutral.

3.   Check Engine Light. No one likes to see the Check Engine light turn on. When you do see this light, it can indicate a wide range of problems. While it could be something as simple as a loose gap cap, it could be a problem with your transmission. The best bet is to have your car inspected so it is properly diagnosed.

4.   Slipping Gears. If you have an automatic transmission, your car should know when to shift into a higher gear as you accelerate. If the shift doesn't happen smoothly or as quickly as it usually does, your gears could be slipping.

5.   Gears Don't Engage. If you drive a car with a manual transmission and have a hard time shifting into gear, this could indicate a worn out clutch or a transmission leak. If you try to ignore this problem, it will just get worse.
