Transmission Repair

Navigating the Gears of Your Vehicle's Health

Let’s shift our attention to an essential part of your vehicle’s well-being: the transmission. At L&N Performance Auto Repair in Blowing Rock, NC, we’re here to guide you through the intricacies of transmission repair, helping you understand when it’s needed, what it involves, and why we’re the team you can trust to do it right.

The Role and Importance of Your Transmission

The transmission in your vehicle is a complex piece of machinery. It’s responsible for transferring power from the engine to the wheels, allowing you to move forward and backward at varying speeds, directing energy to help put your vehicle in motion. But just like any piece of finely tuned equipment, it can encounter issues.

What Can Go Wrong?

Several factors can contribute to transmission problems:


Transmission fluid lubricates and cools the moving parts. Low levels, leaks, or old and dirty fluid can lead to overheating and breakdowns.

and Tear

Over time, the transmission’s internal components can wear out. Excessive wear can lead to a need for a rebuild or replacement.


In manual transmissions, the clutch can wear out or malfunction, leading to difficulty in shifting gears or no power being transmitted to the wheels.

Solenoid and
Sensor Failures

These electrical components control fluid flow and gear engagement. Faults here can cause shifting issues.

Signs Your Transmission May Need Attention

If you notice any of these symptoms, it might be time to visit L&N Performance Auto Repair so our experienced and certified technicians can get a look at what’s going on with your vehicle.

Difficulty Shifting Gears

This could manifest as resistance in the shift lever or a delay in gear engagement.

Unusual Noises

Humming, clunking, or whining from the transmission could be a sign of trouble.

Slipping Gears

The vehicle may unexpectedly shift into neutral or another gear while driving.

Leaking Fluid

Spots under your car? A reddish fluid could mean a transmission leak.
