Automobile transmissions are an important part of cars that most drivers know about even if they do not understand much about what a transmission really does. In basic terms transmissions can be thought of as a component that enables the power generated by the engine to be transferred to the drivetrain of the car that powers the vehicle in motion. Transmissions can be either manual (as in the case of a stick shift) or automatic. Because of the importance of a car’s transmission to its operation, and due to the potential for costly repair bills if a transmission is neglected, we list here several indications that the transmission may require attention.
1) Shifting problems: Transmissions support the propulsion of an automobile by shifting gears as needed. Shifting problems such as noise or grinding between gears can be an indication of transmission problems. The severity of the problem should be evaluated by a service shop that’s experienced in providing transmission maintenance.
2) Unnatural jerking or surging: Less than smooth shifting between gears is normally an indication that the transmission is not functioning as well as it could. Jerking or surging may signal a less than efficient transfer of energy from the engine and could lead to a more serious potential problem in the future. When in doubt have the car checked by a technician.
3) Fluid leaking: Transmission fluid provides essential lubrication for the moving parts inside a car’s transmission. Just as engines cannot run without oil, transmissions depend on transmission fluid. Both age and color of the transmission fluid can be indicators of when to replace transmission fluid. It’s best to include this check during regular maintenance visits. If obvious transmission fluid leaks are noticed then it’s recommended to seek immediate attention from a qualified auto technician.
4) No movement: A car that starts and runs fine but then will not move may be signaling a problem with its transmission. In these instances there is little doubt but to have the vehicle towed to the shop where technicians can perform an evaluation and provide recommendations on needed repairs.
When transmission problems occur it’s seldom if ever that they correct themselves. To maximize the operational life of your vehicle and minimize repair expenses don’t delay giving attention to your car’s transmission.

About Aurora, Colorado
Aurora is a Home Rule Municipality spanning Arapahoe, Adams, and Douglas counties in Colorado. The city is the third most populous city in the state of Colorado and the 58st most populous city in the United States. The city had an estimated population of 319,057 in 2008-07-01. The city and its western neighbor are the principal cities of the Denver-Aurora-Broomfield, CO Metropolitan Statistical Area, which in 2007 had an estimated population of 2,464,866. (22nd most populous MSA), the estimated population of the Denver-Aurora-Boulder Combined Statistical Area was 2,998,878 on 2007-07-01 (15th most populous CSA).
It originated in the 1880s, as the town Fletcher, taking its name from Denver businessman Donald Fletcher who saw it as a real estate opportunity. He and his partners staked out four square miles east of Denver, but the town - and Colorado - struggled mightily after the Silver Crash of 1893. At that point Fletcher skipped town, leaving the community with a huge water debt. Inhabitants decided to rename their township Aurora in 1907, and it slowly began to grow in Denver’s shadow becoming the fastest growing city in the United States during the late 1970s and early 1980s.
Although Aurora has long been considered by many only as one of Denver's larger suburbs, its growing population in recent decades (now over half the size of the City of Denver) has led to efforts for co-equal recognition with its larger neighbor. A former mayor once expressed the somewhat whimsical notion that eventually the area would be called the "Aurora/Denver Metropolitan Area." However, such efforts are somewhat hampered by the lack of a large, historically important central business district in the city, which is largely suburban in character.
A large military presence has existed in Aurora since the early 20th century. In 1918, Army General Hospital #21 (later re-named Fitzsimons Army Hospital) opened, with the U.S. government expanding and upgrading the hospital facilities in 1941 just in time to care for the wounded servicemen of World War II.
Lowry Air Force Base was opened in 1938, straddling the border of Aurora and Denver. It eventually closed in 1994, and was redeveloped into a master-planned community featuring residential, commercial, business and educational facilities.
In 1942, the Army Air Corps built Buckley Field, which over the course of history has been renamed Naval Air Station, Buckley Air National Guard Base and finally Buckley Air Force Base. The base, home of the 460th Space Wing and the 140th Wing Colorado Air National Guard, is Aurora's largest employer.
World attention focused on Aurora for seven weeks during the fall of 1955, as President Dwight D. Eisenhower recovered from a heart attack at Fitzsimons Army Medical Center. The hospital is also the 1943 birthplace of 2004 Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry. Decommissioned in 1999, the facility is part of the Anschutz Medical Campus of the University of Colorado Denver, and the Fitzsimons Life Science District. The Anschutz Medical Campus also includes the University of Colorado Hospital, which moved to Aurora from Denver in 2007, and The Children's Hospital. These facilities will employ a workforce of 32,000 at build-out.
In 2004, Aurora was honored as the Sports Illustrated magazine's 50th Anniversary "Sportstown" for Colorado because of its exemplary involvement in facilitating and enhancing sports. The city attracts more than 30 regional and national sports tournaments annually to Aurora's fields, which include the 220-acre Aurora Sports Park opened in 2003. Aurora's active populace is also reflected in the variety of professional athletes hailing from the city (see Notable People from Aurora below). Aurora's first semi-professional sports franchise, the Aurora Cavalry in the International Basketball League, began play in 2006 but folded by seasons end due to budget mishaps.
Aurora is split among three counties and lies distant from the respective county seats. A consolidated city and county government was considered in the mid-1990s but failed to win approval by city voters. The issue was reconsidered in 2006. Colorado voters created the City and County of Denver in 1902 and the City and County of Broomfield in 2001. A consolidated city and county of Aurora would likely include areas not within the current city limits, but the new city-county boundaries would be set, restricting future expansion. In 2008, Aurora was designated an All-America City by the National Civic League. Source Aurora information:Wikipedia.org
