How do you know you need a new transmission?

If your tranny is already goin bad id go have a little fun with it, what are you gonna break if its already bad. I wouldn't worry about anything happening to the engine or anything like that

If your tranny is going.. get it checked asap. Ours was acting funny before it went but we drove it anyways. We ended up cracking the case, in which cost us approx. $ 800.00 more than if it hadn't been cracked. Not too mention, it took almost a month before a second hand one was available.

A transmission transfers power from the engine to the wheels. If your transmission needs to be repaired, you need to have this done in order to drive your car.

You need to seek help immediately from a transmission professional. If you continue to drive the car with this problem you may do serious damage to the transmission.

no because your car can die or the transmission might slip. you can have a clogged Fuel Injectors , your fuel filter can be dirty and need to be replaced. In so rare cases if your car is jerking to hard it can resulted in a bad transmission.

When you drive in a mountain area and there are a lot of times when you have to go uphill or downhill. The transmission will try to change the gear. To prevent that you have to use over drive which can save your transmission. In normal conditions you do need to use the over drive mode.
