Does Your Transmission Shudder?

transmission

Does your transmission shudder when you take off from a stop? Blue Lakes Auto Repair in Twin Falls, ID can fix that for you.

There are typically two issues that cause a transmission to shake or shudder when you lift your foot off the clutch and hit the accelerator. The first is an issue with the clutch; a broken spring or damaged clutch plate may cause the clutch to shake or wobble when you let out the pedal, causing your car, truck, or SUV to shudder as you begin to accelerate. The second possibility is a worn or failing transmission mount, which is no longer capable of holding the transmission firmly in place as torque is applied to the wheels.

In the case of a clutch issue, the only way to correct it is replacing the clutch; if the clutch is beginning to fail, it’ll only get worse with time, and more extensive damage may be caused in the process. A mount is a far less invasive issue, typically inexpensive and can be completed in a short trip to the shop. You should have damaged mounts replaced before they fail completely, or before other damages are accrued as a result of a bad mount. 

If you’re experiencing a transmission shudder, have one of our professional technicians take a look. Our experts will be able to diagnose the problem, issue a repair, and have you back on the road again in a smooth and reliable ride in no time.

No matter your transmission repair or maintenance needs, we’ve got you covered. For the best transmission service shop in Twin Falls, ID, call or stop by Blue Lakes Auto Repair today.
