Transmission and clutch. Transmission and clutch repairs are generally quite expensive, so it is worthwhile to monitor their health. Automatic transmissions are sensitive to fluid level and condition, check your owner's manual for instructions on checking fluid level. Auto transmission fluid color should be bright pink, if your fluid is black or amber, it's time for a change! Rough or hard shifting, rapid up and down shifting (gear hunting), vibration or slipping under load are all reasons to have your transmission and/or clutch inspected, as repairs may be necessary. Aggressive maintenance schedules beyond manufacturer recommendations can dramatically extend the lifespan of any transmission, though the load you apply to it (driving patterns, towing) is often the biggest influence on service requirement and life.
