Transmission Repair & Service Near Me in Fort Pierce

Whether you’re riding with an automatic or manual, your vehicle’s transmission plays a major role in getting you from point A to point B. That’s because the transmission is what allows you to put your car in park, reverse, drive, or neutral. It’s also responsible for ensuring a smooth ride by providing different gears to accommodate different speeds. That’s why you don’t want to let transmission issues go unattended for too long.

So what are the signs that the transmission is in need of repairs? One of the biggest indicators is if you’re experiencing any transmission slippage. A transmission slip is when the transmission “slips” into either neutral gear or a gear that doesn’t match the current speed, causing delayed movement and sluggish acceleration. Any amount of gear slippage could cause damage to the overall system, so it’s important to get it checked out as soon as you notice it happening.

Another sign there may be transmission troubles is leaking transmission fluid. The transmission fluid keeps all the moving parts of the transmission well lubricated, creating the hydraulic pressure necessary to keep the internal parts working. Without that fluid, the transmission gears will grind together and become damaged. If you notice any pink or red fluid pooling under your vehicle, that’s the transmission fluid leaking.

Don’t take any risks when it comes to the transmission. Instead, bring your vehicle to Garber Buick GMC in Fort Pierce and let our ASE-certified service technicians take care of it for you. Click the button below to schedule your test drive today!

Transmission FAQ's

Some common signs your transmission might need service include:

  • Delay when switching gears
  • A burning smell
  • Fluids leaking
  • Gears are slipping
  • A lack of response when shifting into another gear
Transmission slipping refers to when your vehicle ‘slips’ out of gear into one that doesn’t correspond to the vehicle’s current speed. Signs that your transmission may be slipping include: a delay before movement, slow or sluggish acceleration, or a loud noise when switching gears. If you suspect your transmission is slipping, bring it into Garber Buick GMC to have a service technician inspect it for you. Don’t wait – the longer a transmission is slipping, the more damage the gear and other components will endure, leading to even more expensive repairs in the long run.
Transmission fluid will be red or pink in color. If you notice a red or pink puddle underneath your car, bring it into Garber Buick GMC’s service center as soon as possible. If your vehicle is leaking transmission fluid, it could be causing a lot of damage to the internal parts of the transmission.

A few things you can do to ensure your transmission continues to work properly are:

  • Make certain that the transmission always has enough fluid
  • Have your transmission fluid checked to make sure it is filled, clean, and free of leaks when you get an oil change
  • Have the transmission fluid replaced on schedule
