If you notice any of the following, you may have something wrong with your transmission:

  1. If the transmission “feels” like it is operating differently to normal;
  2. The engine revs fast but the car is slow in moving off or does not move at all;
  3. Harsh or rough gear changes;
  4. Gear changes seem to be missed;
  5. Very slow or extended gear changes;
  6. Engine revs during gear changes;
  7. Unusual noises or shuddering during gear changes or while driving;
  8. Oil leaks or transmission oil smells burnt or looks black in colour;
  9. Transmission goes into Failsafe mode. Failsafe mode is a feature on modern transmissions where the transmission will lock itself into one gear if there is a problem.  This will enable you to continue to drive your car for a short time. Your car should be taken immediately to your nearest Fluidrive® Service Centre.

Sometimes it can be difficult to identify a problem.  If you think there is something wrong then take your car to your nearest Fluidrive® Service Centre for an obligation free TransCheck®.  A TransCheck® is a prescribed sequence of tests designed to check for any faults in you automatic transmission.  The tests are carried out by our specially trained technicians.  They will advise you if they find a fault and suggest the most economical way of rectifying it.  Remember that early diagnosis and rectification can often avoid the cost of major repairs.
