Ford Transit Van Transmission Problems & Replacement in San Jose

Common signs that you have a transmission issue in your Ford Transit Van include: the warning light comes on in your Ford Transit Van, or when you go to shift gears there is a delay in gear change. If you smell a bizarre smell while driving, that is always a bad sign and could be your transmission fluid burning. Grinding when you shift is also a sign that your transmission needs some serious attention.  If you notice a leak emanating from your engine, it could be your transmission fluid leaking. A leak could indicate that you need a transmission fluid change or a complete flush service. Though uncommon, a transmission fluid leak could also mean that there is an issue with your transmission hose. If you are experiencing any of these issues, give us a call today, and we will be sure to check your transmission fluid levels and have one of our expert technicians investigate the problem further.

Manual or Automatic Transmission in Ford Transit Vans

Automatic and manual transmissions require different fluids to be maintained properly and to function optimally. Automatic transmission fluid is thinner, while manual transmission fluid is much thicker, on account of all the special lubricant needed to ease the wear and tear on the gear box. Automatic transmissions generate a lot more heat, and so the fluid needs to be changed more often, while manual transmissions produce less heat. It is important to have your fluid levels checked when you bring your Ford Transit Van into the mechanic’s; be sure to give Leale’s a call today to speak with one of our knowledgeable and capable automotive technicians.
