Transmission Fluid Flush

Our Transmission Fluid Flush safely removes most, if not all, of the old, contaminated fluid, as well as varnish and sludge deposits. It also cleans the transmission cooler, valve body and torque converter to remove wear metals that slowly grind away your transmission’s internal components.

Our Transmission Fluid Exchange thoroughly cleans your car’s transmission and protects it with fresh ATF and conditioners that revitalize the seals and o-rings.

If your vehicle’s transmission is showing any of the typical signs of contaminated transmission fluid—slippage or rough of hard shifting—try this service.

It may help you avoid the cost of major repair work or even the need for a new transmission.

Why You Should Flush Out Your Transmission Fluid?

Your transmission’s vital parts get clogged with sludge and varnish deposits because, just like the oil in your car’s engine, automatic transmission fluid (ATF) suffers from heat, friction and electrochemical degradation. In fact nearly nine out of ten transmission failures are due to overheating and fluid contamination. *

However, unlike oil, which can be completely drained from your car’s engine, most of the transmission fluid cannot be drained, Instead it stay in the torque converter, valve body and transmission cooler lines, making a complete fluid drain impossible.

Typical transmission service removes and replaces only 25% of your car’s contaminated automatic transmission fluid.

Adding new fluid to the remaining contaminated fluid can actually cause sludge and varnish deposits to clog filters and further restrict flow.

This can result in a serious malfunction or even complete failure of your automatic transmission. A regular transmission fluid flush combined with our Automatic Transmission Service can provided the ultimate protection from fluid contamination.
