Have A Car That Is Loud, Grinding, And Shaking When Accelerating? Get It In The Shop Fast

George Newman

A car that shakes or grinds when shifting gears can be dangerous, and you want to find out the problem to preserve your automobile. If you are stressed out by way your vehicle is driving and how the vehicle handles, it's time to get it looked at.

The transmission can often be the problem when you are experiencing problems with gear shifts and changes. Ask to have these things done, and the transmission looked at.

Check Transmission Fluid Levels

The mechanics will check the transmission fluid. The following fluid issues could be causing your current driving problems:

  • Low fluid levels from a leak
  • Dirty fluid that needs to be changed or replaced
  • Low-quality fluid from condensation and dilution

Any of these issues could be the problem, and if the tank doesn't need to be replaced because of a leak or seal damage, changing the fluid is a fast fix and one of the more affordable outcomes you can hope for.

Flush the Transmission

Get the transmission flushed out. This will clean out all of the debris, build-up, and fluid that is currently inside the unit. This could be enough to help remove any diluted or bad fluid or tiny backups or clogs inside the unit. This is something that can be done along with an overall tune-up to see if it makes a difference.

Inspect the Gears

Have the transmission inspected. The gears may be damaged or they may not be getting the proper lubrication that's needed because of the fluid problems that are going unnoticed. It may take the mechanics some time to get into the transmission to find out what is wrong, but you want to have everything inspected properly so you can be sure that the vehicle isn't going to break down on you and that it's safe.  

The mechanics will look at all the other components under the hood of the vehicle to try to determine what is causing the grinding and shaking. Since the transmission may be buried under other car parts, it could take some time for your car to get looked at, and it may be a day or two that you are without the vehicle while they are trying to get the accurate diagnosis and before you get an estimate.  Don't drive a vehicle that isn't safe or that you don't trust, instead take the time to have the vehicle checked, and get the vehicle fixed right.
