If you have never gotten a transmission flush, you’re probably wondering what it is and why it’s important. Let’s start out by explaining the process of a transmission flush. You can fill your transmission fluid when it’s low like you would your engine oil. However, just like your oil needs to be changed, your transmission fluid needs to be flushed and replaced. A transmission flush is a simple maintenance process to remove grime and sludge. First, we remove all of the oil remaining in the transmission. Next, we take new oil, and occasionally cleaning solutions as well, and run it through the transmission using a special machine. This step helps to push out any grim inside the transmission. Finally, we fill up the transmission with the new oil.
Besides keeping your transmission clean, transmission flushes have an important role in keeping your vehicle in top shape. While you only need to get this service done every 30,000 to 50,000 miles, it can help to extend the lifespan of your transmission. Keeping the transmission fluid also helps to ensure that shifting is smooth. If your vehicle is still covered under warranty, getting this process done regularly can help you avoid paying out of pocket to replace the transmission. Finally, this service can help improve fuel economy. If you’re not sure if your vehicle needs a transmission flush, don’t hesitate to reach out to our service team.
