If you have ever dealt with transmission slipping, you know it can be a costly issue for your vehicle. Transmission slipping is more common with automatic cars as it is in manual cars. But what exactly is happening in your vehicle when your transmission is slipping?
What is Transmission Slipping?
For manual transmissions, picture a slipping transmission like having a worn out clutch in your vehicle. For automatic transmissions there are a variety of clutches, brakes, and bands that engage and disengage parts of the gears. If you think your vehicle has a slipping transmission, it may need to be repaired or replaced.
What causes Transmission Slipping?

Transmission Fluid Leak– If you have recently filled up your transmission fluid, and are still experiencing issues, you may have a transmission fluid leak. A transmission reseal can take care of this issue.
