There’s nothing that can ruin your day quite like the sound of gears that don’t shift properly or the awful smell of burnt transmission fluid.

Commercial Truck Transmission Repair
Commercial truck transmissions are larger and more complex than those in passenger vehicles, so it's important to find a qualified repair shop if you suspect an issue. There are a few key things to look for when choosing a shop for commercial truck transmission repair:
- Make sure the technicians are experienced in working on larger trucks.
- Check that the shop has the proper tools and equipment for the job.
- Ask about the warranty on parts and labor. A good repair shop will be able to answer all of your questions and put your mind at ease.
You will find satisfaction in all three of these areas when working with DEI Truck & Fleet.
How Can I Tell if I Have a Transmission Fluid Leak?
The first step is knowing what transmission fluid looks like – it's typically a red or pink color, but it can turn more brown if it's dirty. It also has an oily texture, and smells like oil, unless it's dirty. In that case, it will smell more burnt than anything. If you have a transmission leak, it will typically pool towards the front or middle of your vehicle, so if you ever find a puddle of liquid that matches this description, then odds are you have a leak. Another key sign is if it sounds a bit off when you change gears, or if changing gears is more difficult than usual.
5 Signs Your Truck's Transmission Needs Repair
- You feel problems between gears: If you're ever noticing delays or strange shifting when you change gears, you should probably get your transmission looked at by our mechanics. Look out for high revving from the engine between shifts or grinding gears.
- The sound of metal grinding on metal: When you feel your gears grinding, you may also hear the metal on metal sound that comes with that kind of contact. You may also hear a whining noise that indicates your bearings have started to wear out.
- A sweet scent coming from your vehicle: Transmission fluid is known for having a sweet scent, and if it’s leaking out of your vehicle, you should be able to smell it. It also burns intensely and produces a distinct burning smell. If your vehicle is producing unusual odors, contact our Santa Clarita transmission repair experts.
- Red fluid under your truck: Transmission fluid has a distinctive red look that doesn't look like any other kind of fluid. If you're seeing this under your truck after it's been parked somewhere, then you might have a leak.
- Your truck pops out of gear: If your truck ever pops out of gear and into neutral, or to other gears, then your transmission should be inspected by our mechanics as soon as possible.
