If cars aren't the sort of thing you know much about, you may be a little lost when it comes to auto maintenance (outside of an oil change). A transmission flush is a service that vehicle owners should do regularly as transmission fluid serves as both a lubricant and a hydraulic fluid.
What Does Transmission Fluid Do?
There are many fluids in your car, but the transmission fluid is arguably one of the most important. It's a type of liquid that works to cool and lubricate the gears of your transmission. Similarly to the other fluids, it deteriorates over time. You'll need to replace or flush it to get the job done.
If you are tough on your car, such as hauling a trailer or carrying heavy loads, your transmission fluid will decay even quicker as it puts a heavy strain on the transmission. The more you drive, the heat of your transmission will break down the fluid, causing it to discolor and burn.
What Is a Transmission Flush?
A transmission flush displaces the old transmission fluid with fresh fluid and also cleans the fluid lines. Our team at Romay's Auto Service uses special equipment to do the job. A full flush removes all the contaminants, including any dirt or debris that may have built up in your transmission. While you could get a fluid change, it will not entirely get rid of all the gunk. A simple flush can save you thousands on having to repair your transmission in the long run.
Signs You Need a Transmission Flush
If you find that your vehicle is slipping out of gear, it may be time for transmission fluid maintenance. Also, if you find that shifting gears is rough, slow, or delayed, your transmission fluid could be at fault. Sticky gears are a huge indicator that you need new fluid.
