If you’re driving around in your car, and suddenly notice that the transmission is not working properly, then it’s time to get it fixed as soon as possible. There are many reasons why this might happen, but the most common one is a broken or damaged transmission fluid pump. This can be caused by several things, including:
A cracked clutch plate – a cracked clutch plate will result in a loss of power and an increase in fuel consumption. A cracked clutch plate may also cause damage to other parts of the transmission, such as the drive shaft or gears.
Damaged drive belt – if the drive belt breaks, the engine won’t turn over. If the drive belt is damaged, you’ll have to replace it with another new one.
Damaged gearbox – if the gear box becomes damaged, there will be no way for the vehicle to move forward. The gearbox itself is responsible for transmitting the power from the engine to the wheels.
Damaged valve body – if the valve body becomes damaged, the oil pressure inside the transmission will drop dramatically, causing the transmission to fail. A damaged valve body is dangerous because it could lead to a leak of transmission fluid into the engine compartment.
Damaged rear differential – a damaged rear differential can cause problems when turning the vehicle left or right. It’s important to note that the rear differential is located behind the transmission, so it cannot be seen easily.
Damaged steering rack – a damaged steering rack causes the front wheels to lose traction and become difficult to steer. In some cases, the entire steering system may need to be replaced. It might not be directly related to transmission problems, but it can be a sign that you need to take the car to the shop and get it looked at.
