Transmission Repair in Brentwood, CA
The transmission in your vehicle is responsible for transferring power from the engine to the wheels, enabling your car to actually move when you put the car in drive. Since the transmission is a gear box consisting of many connecting parts, it definitely requires regular service and attention in order to ensure that it works without issue over time.

If there is an issue with your vehicle’s transmission, you may notice one or more of the following symptoms:
- Trouble switching gears
- Burning smell when driving
- Noisy in neutral

- Car shakes when switching gears
If you’re interested in checking your transmission fluid, there is a way to do so safely. First, park your vehicle on a level surface and engage the parking brake. Check your vehicle’s owner’s manual to determine whether the transmission fluid level should be checked with the engine off or on - if it should be checked while the engine is on, leave your vehicle running for a few minutes to warm up. Locate the transmission fluid dipstick, which will typically be near the transmission meets the rear of the engine.
You’ll first want to remove the dipstick, wipe it clean and then fully reinsert it to remove it again. Be careful - if your vehicle’s manufacturer recommends the engine to be on, the fluid may be hot. Check the markings at the end of the dipstick - you should see a marker for full, and if the fluid level doesn’t reach that marker, your fluid is low. Driving with low transmission fluid can lead to major engine trouble over time, so it's important to bring your car into our experts for an inspection as soon as you notice low fluid levels.
