Your car shifts gears to speed up and slow down, regardless of whether it's a manual or an automatic. If you find that suddenly it's unable to shift, you might be out of transmission fluid. You can add some more to the reservoir to see if you can get things moving again, but we highly recommend bringing your car to Toyota of Orlando's service center to have our techs check your transmission out.
When your transmission is slipping, you'll feel it start to shift into the next gear (especially when accelerating) but then suddenly, it slips back into the gear it was initially in. It just can't quite make it into the next gear. You might also notice choppiness when the car does finally shift, spiking RPMs before you shift, and weird noises coming from the engine bay when you shift. This is a serious problem, so let our techs take a peek under the hood.
