Transmission Symptoms and Troubleshooting
In honor of International Shift Awareness Month, we’ll be going over common symptoms of problems with your transmission. We will also cover how to troubleshoot to find out what is causing the problem.
More often then not you will be able to recognize subtle differences or symptoms of small issues before they become major problems.
If you recently installed a new transmission but are still experiencing the same problems you had with the old one, it could be due to the transmission codes. When you change the transmission, the transmission trouble codes don’t go away. Your car’s computer stores the codes and will not adjust to the new transmission until you clear them out. A very important thing to remember is that not all scanners will be able to access the codes for the transmission. You need to make sure the scanner used is able to scan for transmission codes and clear them as well.
In the next video we will increase your shift knowledge more about symptoms and how to troubleshoot to discover the cause. By the end of this month you will be armed with the information needed to fight transmission neglect.
