What Does Check Engine Light Mean??

It happens to everyone; the terrifying check engine light goes on, and it often happens at the worst times. Your car’s check engine lights could pop on for various reasons. For some it is only a minor problem while others may be serious engine problems.

In worse scenarios, your car will show no reaction after pressing the accelerator. This is an embarrassing thing and you may end up missing a crucial event. A&B Transmission has the right equipment and experience to diagnose your engine and get you back on the road.

Early signs of transmission problems

  • Shaking of your car at any speed
  • Visible leaking fluid on the ground and under the hood
  • Slipping and grinding when you shift gears
  • Burning smell from under your car’s hood
  • Screeching sound once you are in motion

Common transmission problems we can solve

  • Difficulty in shifting gears: having to use lots of force to shift manual gears is not only an inconvenience but also makes driving painful. This should raise concern. It needs to be addressed before it becomes a big problem.
  • Low levels of engine fluid: If you realize that your engine fluid level is running low, it is time to get a top up. If left low it will gravely affect transmission and the surrounding components.
  • Transmission running hot: under normal circumstances, transmission operates under optimal temperatures. If it runs too then there is a problem. The early sign would be a burning smell. In essence, this could mean your cooling system is faulty or there is inadequate transmission fluid within the engine system.
  • Faulty solenoid regulation: sometimes the transmission fluid level could be optimal and still have engine problems. In this case, the most probable culprit is solenoid regulation. Solenoid is directly responsible for the flow of oil into the engine components. It must be regularly checked to ensure it is not malfunctioning.
