What to Do When Your Transmission Is Stuck in Low Gear

Things in life happen one possible problem after another. The last thing you really want is the most expensive repair for your main mode of transportation: a transmission problem. Whether it is an automatic or manual, transmission issues can keep you from moving forward, unless you are pushing your car.

In Manual transmissions, this usually means that your clutch is burnt out. The evaporation of the clutch can cause a transmission’s springs to come undone and leave you stranded where you are. These are easier to fix since the clutch is more of a replacement part for most shops. Not that it is not as important as an automatic, but the fix should be less time consuming. In the case of an automatic transmission, your transmission will require more attention.

Make sure your fluid levels are where they should be. Always consult your owner’s manual for accurate fluid levels. When the fluid level is low, it can cause the gears to stick instead of allowing it to change to the next gear.

Also, if your fluid level is low, always look under the vehicle for fluid spots. This can determine if there is a leak or the fluid was not topped in your last service. Always make sure you change your transmission fluid at the time of scheduled maintenance. Not changing the fluid can result in sludge build up, making it hard for gears to shift up.

Check the dashboard to see if your engine light is on. If it is, the mechanics at Twin Transmission can offer a free diagnostic check with your repair. A problem that may be going against your transmission that is not visible is a computer problem.

This is a problem that can be detected when the computer diagnostic check is performed. The vehicle’s Transmission Control Unit/Module could be the cause of the transmission problem. A miss fire with the vehicle’s computer communication can also make your gears stick.
