Hi, my name is***** your mechanic automotive expert, and I will be happy to assist you today. In some cases, I may need more information to assist better. I apologize for any delay.

Dear customer, the sounds in the transmission can become a little worrying, the important thing is that you do not drive very long travels with these sounds, because sometimes these sounds can be symptoms of excessive wear in the transmission, so this noise in the transmission, we start working on the basis of lubrication problems, therefore the first thing recommended is to replace the transmission fluid and its filter since this is the most common thing that causes this kind of damage, sometimes is missed in the services, so this maintenance is not done, if this is the case, i recommend you start doing this maintenances, if after this the problem is not sorted a diangostic to see what the error codes are pointing us.

My goal is to give you the best advice i can, I hope to be helpful, if you have any doubt or want to know anything else please do not hesitate to reply back.
Kind regards, Sebastian.
