- Sudden loss of speed or problems accelerating

How Can I be Sure it’s the Transmission?
If your vehicle is displaying any of the signs above, the only way to be sure it’s the transmission is a professional diagnosis. Many times clients will come in thinking they have transmission trouble when it’s actually a bad spark plug or clogged catalytic converter. Also, today’s vehicles are complex machines with many electrical components. So what may seem to be a transmission problem could simply be a faulty sensor or control module. The key is to have your vehicle looked at by a professional - and bring it in to the shop quickly, before a small problem develops into a costly repair.
Driving Conditions That Can Affect Your Transmission
Minnesota’s summer heat can add stress to your transmission and cause fluid degradation. Always stay on top of your maintenance schedule and consult with one of our technicians to learn when a transmission fluid flush might be required.
Towing Extra Weight
Be careful not to overload vehicles when towing. This is especially critical in warmer weather and and on long road trips. You can find your vehicle’s weight limits in your owner’s manual.
Driving Through Snow and Mud
If you’ve lived in Minnesota long, you’ve probably been stuck in snow at one point. Quickly shifting from forward to reverse is often the instinctual reaction to free the vehicle from being stuck. However, drivers should avoid this method as it causes heat to build up in the automatic transmission.
