In a car with a standard or manual transmission, the driver must manually shift to 1st gear, and then after the car begins to roll, manually shift to 2nd, 3rd, and so on as the car speeds up.

The Automatic transmission, on the other hand, allows the car to automatically change gear ratios to shift from 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and more. Automatic shifting is possible thanks to a series of valves and switches that control the oil pressure. Most cars on the market today are equipped with automatic transmissions.

If there is a problem with the automatic transmission, you will see that the transmission does not shift up a gear when accelerating from a standstill. The engine speed goes up, but the car seems to be dragging. I can hear the engine screaming louder than usual, but the car doesn’t move very smoothly.

One of the most common automatic transmission problems that people have to deal with from time to time is that the transmission does not stay in place. Another problem you sometimes struggle with is the difficulty of shifting gear. When shifting, you may notice a delay, or even notice that the shift gear is getting pretty tight. There are several reasons why such a common problem can affect the transmission, and the remedy for this could be the repair of certain external parts.

Transmission problems often occur when parts are worn or damaged. In some cases, the external control of an automatic transmission may require simple adjustments enough to solve the problem. Alternatively, you may need to replace the external control. Of course, it may be necessary to both adjust and replace the worn external control.

Modern vehicles are increasingly computer-controlled, and troubleshooting these modern vehicle transmission problems requires hiring specialists to diagnose and fix the problems. The longer the problem remains unresolved, the more damage it will do to your car, so you should never ignore such problems with your transmission.

Therefore, it is advisable to perform an early diagnosis of the problem. A good workshop will carry out an extensive process to test the transmission and get an accurate picture of what is wrong with the transmission. Inspection of the transmission helps determine if the problem is with an external component or if there is another type of malfunction that needs to be addressed.

If the transmission slips, you will see that the automatic transmission slips each time you change gears. A well-functioning automatic transmission is designed to hold each gear very comfortably at a given speed. A common problem with automatic transmissions is that the engine starts racing as soon as you select a drive. To diagnose and fix these and other problems, you need to call a good mechanic.

Other common problems with automatic transmissions are related to noisy transmissions, which indicate worn parts in the transmission. The solution to these problems is to replace the apparently worn parts.

Another sign that there is a problem with the gearbox is the buzzing sound from the gearbox. In addition, every time you change gears, you’ll hear an awkward noise from underneath the vehicle. Only trained technicians can solve such problems at
