A recap on slipping gears: What does is it mean? Your vehicle’s transmission stays in specific gear until a manual or automatic shift is performed. If the transmission is unexpectedly slipping gears while driving, your safety is largely at risk. If you had to step on the gas in order to avoid a dangerous situation, the only way that can happen is if power is delivered to the wheels. If the link that holds the gears is worn or broken, your vehicle will not receive the power it needs to take off. If you ever suspect gears slipping, do not wait to get your vehicle inspected and repaired as soon as possible. Our transmission professionals are here to help.
