First of all, you may be wondering, what is transmission fluid? Transmission fluid is a slippery liquid that lubricates all the surfaces and components of the transmission system so they don’t wear out too quickly by preventing excessive friction and overheating. It also serves as a viscous fluid that transmits power from the engine to the transmission.

Transmission fluid is supposed to remain in your vehicle for its entire lifespan without changing it, although some mechanics will tell you that you should change it every 50,000 miles.

However, if your transmission develops a leak because of a worn out or damaged component, you may start to notice some or all of the following symptoms of low transmission fluid:

If you neglect routine transmission service on your vehicle, you may start experiencing some of the symptoms of low transmission fluid. Make an Appt today at your auto shop!

To help your vehicle drive in the safest and best condition possible, it is important to make sure that you have the car alignment and the wheel balancing checked on a regular basis. Many drivers ignore the signs of a lost alignment or balancing, and as a result, they will find their vehicles are difficult to keep going straight down the road.

So attention all drivers! Do you know what happens if you don’t balance your tires? Some of the signs to watch for include:

  • Swerving from side to side while driving on a straight road,
  • Feeling every little rock on the road, 
  • Vibrations in the steering wheel,
  • The steering wheel feels loose.
wondering what happens if you don’t balance your tires? Don’t put off scheduling a needed tire service. It is important that both the wheel balancing and car alignment are correct so that you are driving as safe as possible.

You’re out with your family enjoying a serene drive in the country when all of a sudden the “Check Engine” light illuminates on your dashboard. This pesky warning light can mean various things, from a loose gas cap to a more serious misfiring engine. It also indicates that your vehicle is getting poor fuel economy and polluting the environment more than approved limits. The important concern at this time is to make sure that long-term damage isn’t taking place in your engine and that you aren't compromising the safety of your vehicle.

The ‘check engine’ light works like this -- when the electronic-control system finds a problem it cannot adjust, the vehicle’s computer turns on a yellow warning indicator light and stores a diagnostic trouble code (DTC) in its memory. This stored DTC helps your mechanic pinpoint the source of a potential problem. It may simply indicate a sensor is malfunctioning, or it could be more serious, such as low oil pressure or engine overheating.

Are you wondering, “Why does my check engine light come on?” Schedule an engine service at Cannon Auto Repair & ask your auto mechanic to run a diagnostic test
