Transmission Repair for Import Vehicles

Import Vehicle Maintenance: How to Tell if Your Car Needs Transmission Repairs

Imports like Volvo, BMW, and Mercedes-Benz are great vehicles. They’re reliable and built from high-quality parts, ensuring they outlast and outperform many of their competitors. However, that doesn’t mean they’re not susceptible to issues. If your import is starting to give you trouble, watch for these signs that you might need a transmission repair.

Difficulty Shifting Gears

If you’re struggling to shift gears smoothly and experiencing issues such as a squeaky clutch, jerking, or hesitation, it could be a sign that your import vehicle’s transmission needs work. This can result in improper RPMs, stalling, or even the complete inability to drive. 

Shaky Driving

Having your vehicle shake or vibrate while driving—especially while idling or driving at fast speeds—is a common sign that your transmission fluid is low. If that’s the case, having it topped up quickly is vital to prevent damage to your engine and other components of your vehicle. 

Transmission Fluid Leaks

If there’s a puddle of red or brown liquid underneath your car, it’s likely transmission fluid. While any liquid pooling beneath your car is worth an urgent investigation by a licensed mechanic, transmission fluid leaks can result in substantial damage and require immediate transmission repair. 

Burning Smells

If your car is leaking transmission fluid, it will typically result in a burning smell when your car is running, and you’ll likely still be able to smell it after turning off the engine and exiting the vehicle.
