A transmission flush is a process of removing grime, sludge, and old transmission fluid from a car's transmission and then adding fresh, clean fluid. This procedure lubricates and cools the automatic transmission.
The transmission system is designed to safely and smoothly transfer power to the wheel from the engine. By keeping the system in good condition, you'll protect your car against severe damage.
Here are the top three benefits of a transmission flush:
- Prevent Problems With Transmission
Preventing problems with the transmission is perhaps the most crucial benefit of a transmission flush. Over time, your transmission fluid will collect dirt and other foreign particles to prevent it from performing its function. This will cause the transmission system to heat up, which may interfere with acceleration and shifting.
Dirty transmission fluid will no longer provide lubrication or power for transmission. By removing this old fluid and replacing it with a new and fresh one, you'll eliminate transmission problems.
It is quite expensive to replace or repair the transmission. By having regular transmission flushes, you'll not spend as much as you'd spend if you had to replace or repair the entire transmission system. It also reduces the cost of repairing other parts of the vehicle that can damage the malfunctioning transmission system.
When your transmission is properly lubricated and cooled, your vehicle will be more efficient and safe to drive.
- Improve The Efficiency Of The Engine
Transmission flush eliminates transmission problems and reduces repair costs and improves the efficiency of the vehicle's engine. When the engine is well lubricated and powered, it will operate optimally. That explains why transmission flush can also help lower your fueling costs.
How Often Should You Perform Transmission Flush?
The frequency of flushing your transmission depends on how you use your vehicle and where you drive it. If the vehicle is used well and in a clean environment, the transmission fluid may stay in good condition longer. Check your car's manual to see the recommended frequency. Some manufacturers recommend transmission flush after every 3 to 5 years (or 30,000 to 50,000 miles).
