Benefits of transmission flush

Benefits of transmission flush

Whether you know a little or a lot about cars, you’re aware that transmission repairs can be astronomically expensive. Here’s one way you can keep your transmission properly functioning and avoid expensive repairs.

What Are the Benefits of a Transmission Flush?

A transmission flush removes used, dirty transmission fluid and replaced with clean, high-quality transmission fluid. Once the fluid is replaced, your car’s transmission will have a lesser chance of overheating, and your car’s bearings, clutches, and gears will have additional protection against wear and tear. After the fluid is flushed from the transmission, your car should provide a smoother ride due to effective frictional properties.

A transmission flush also helps cleanse the transmission. Extreme heat breaks down the transmission fluid, which causes sludge to form. Sludge is contaminants and other debris that can accumulate and decrease your car’s performance. Transmission flushes should be performed every 45,000 miles.

Is a Transmission Flush a Type of Car Repair?

No. A transmission flush is a type of car maintenance. A transmission flush is not a solution to fix problems with the transmission itself. The flush is designed to keep the car in optimum functioning order, not repair minor or major issues a transmission is experiencing. If there is an underlying issue with your transmission, a flush will not repair the issue, only enhance your car’s performance and provide a protective layer for many of your car’s parts.

Does My Car Need a Transmission Flush?

Yes, your car needs a transmission flush. Without this flush, you will experience issues shifting gears. Due to the accumulation of dirt, your car can switch gears too quickly or too slowly.

Your vehicle requires regular maintenance to perform as it should. Regular car maintenance, such as oil changes, tire rotation, and other services will help keep your car operating smoothly for many years.
