Subaru Transmission Issues? Specialty Auto Has You Covered

Transmission failure issues in Subaru models can make your Subaru difficult and dangerous to drive. If your vehicle’s transmission is experiencing transmission slipping, trouble shifting gears, or other automatic transmission issues, it’s important to take your vehicle to a trusted auto repair shop like Specialty Auto. Whether you drive a continuously variable transmission, automatic transmission, or manual transmission vehicle, Specialty Auto has the experience and expertise needed to keep your engine and transmission running smoothly.

The Importance of a Healthy Transmission

A properly maintained transmission is vital to the performance of your Subaru vehicles. With a faulty transmission, you can run into engine issues, from difficulty maintaining speed to difficulty accelerating. Subarus with unhealthy transmissions also lowers your vehicle’s fuel efficiency; without addressing transmission failure symptoms early on, major problems can arise down the road.

Common Subaru Transmission Problems

The most common problems failing Subaru transmissions cause are trouble shifting gears, delayed shifting, transmission fluid seepage, a burning smell, unusual noises, or a check engine light appearance. Noticing these symptoms early ensures that a professional mechanic can address your car’s needs and avoid larger issues down the road.

Specialization in Subaru Transmission Repairs

Specialty Auto’s team of professional mechanics have years of combined experience with diagnosing and repairing Subaru transmissions. We’ve got top-of-the-line equipment, experienced professionals, and we are prepared to handle any Subaru repairs you may need. At Specialty Auto, we guarantee to service your Subaru at the best cost possible, ensuring you only pay for repairs you need.

Signs of Transmission Trouble

If you notice your shifting being more difficult than usual or more delayed or your transmission isn’t reacting at all, it’s a sign you must get your transmission checked. Any strange smells or noises are also signs that there may be an issue with your Subaru transmission. Another sign to get your transmission inspected is if your check engine light turns on: this can be caused by minor issues such as a missing gas cap, but it can also be a sign of more serious engine or transmission issues that will need professional repairs. If you notice any of these signs, be sure to take your Subaru to a trusted repair shop for diagnosis.

Diagnosing Subaru Transmission Issues

At Specialty Auto, we guarantee to be as thorough as possible in all inspections and repairs. We start by taking a deeper look at any problems you’ve already noticed, such as burning smells, overheating, or clicking noises. We then conduct a thorough inspection to evaluate the extent of the damages and repair your vehicle as needed to address every root cause of transmission failure. Specialty Auto is committed to providing accurate and cost-effective solutions to all your transmission needs; we’ll service your car at the lowest price possible and only conduct repairs you actually need.

Repairs and Solutions

In general, most transmission problems can be repaired by replacing your transmission entirely, disassembling and repairing your original transmission, or replacing specific parts within your transmission, like the gaskets, filters, or bands. The best transmission repair type will depend on the extent of the damages to your vehicle and the amount of repairs needed. When replacing parts of your transmission, it’s important to use genuine Subaru parts, whether you need a new Subaru CVT transmission or simply a smaller part. Specialty Auto guarantees the best and most affordable services for any transmission solutions needed, so unnecessary costs don’t hold you back from a safely running vehicle.

Preventive Maintenance Tips

Transmission issues can be costly to repair if left unchecked; the best way to avoid them is through preventative maintenance services. Specialty Auto recommends checking your transmission fluid regularly and paying attention to your driving habits to ensure your transmission doesn’t wear out.

DIY vs. Professional Repairs

Your vehicle’s transmission is a highly complex part of your car. Taking apart, replacing, or putting back together your transmission on your own puts you at risk for small mistakes that can cause large issues with your vehicle in the long run. To avoid the risk of dangerous mistakes down the road, it’s highly important that you seek professional assistance with your transmission repairs, regardless of if you’ve done DIY projects on your car before.
