Your automatic transmission is subjected to friction and wear through common use, so you may need to invest in maintenance to prevent a major failure. A simple transmission maintenance project is changing the fluid, but a more thorough maintenance service is transmission flushing. Find out how a transmission flush works, how it can prevent costly repairs and where to go to enjoy this professional maintenance service.
Draining the fluid in your transmission pan only removes about half the fluid in your transmission system. The rest of the fluid is in the torque converter and other areas due to the design and pressure of the system. A transmission flush forces this leftover fluid and any contaminants out away from your torque converter.
For best results, take your vehicle to an auto shop where they use a flush machine and specialized fluid for a flush. After releasing the old fluid and performing a flush, a quality technician can easily replace your pan, fill up your transmission fluid reservoir and inspect your system for full operation.
Like all preventative maintenance, this process offers significant savings by preventing an emergency transmission repair. Transmission rebuild or replacement services cost thousands of dollars, which is significantly higher than a transmission flush.
Fewer metal shavings in your transmission fluid mean less wear and friction as your automatic transmission shifts between gears. A thorough cleaning keeps your transmission clean and helps it operate efficiently.
Ask a mechanic if this service is right for your vehicle. If you’re experiencing difficulties shifting or if you hear grinding or other unusual sounds as your vehicle shifts, you may have an issue with your transmission. A flush can remove metal shavings and contaminants but isn’t a substitute for a full transmission rebuild if your system is already compromised.
