Trouble Shooting > Transmission Noise
Symptom: Transmission Noise
Automatic: Transmission clicks during gear shifts, clunks when dropped into gear, or makes noise when in 4-wheel drive. Begin by checking your transmission fluid. If it is too low, fill the transmission with the fluid specified in your operators manual. If the noise persists call our service manager.
