Why Should I Flush Out My Transmission Fluid?

Why Should I Flush Out My Transmission Fluid?

18/09/03 BY  GERRY

After a while your transmission’s essential parts start to get blocked with varnish and sludge deposits therefore inhibiting the flow of transmission fluid throughout the transmission. This is caused because automatic transmission fluid is susceptible to damage from heat, friction and electrochemical degradation. In fact, nearly 90% of transmissions failures are due to overheating of the transmission and transmission fluid contamination.

A normal transmission service only removes 25% of the contaminated transmission fluid. The rest stays in the torque converter, valve body and transmission lines. Adding new fluid to the remaining contaminated fluid can actually loosen sludge and varnish deposit’s that eventually clogs filters and further restricts fluid flow. This can result in a serious malfunction or even complete failure of your automatic transmission.

At Auto World we do a complete Transmission Fluid Exchange which safely removes the varnish and sludge deposits. Our transmission fluid flush removes the fluid from the cooler lines, torque converter and valve body and also removes the wear material metals that slowly grind away your transmissions components.

If you haven’t had your transmission fluid flushed out in the last 30,000 miles, it’s time for a transmission fluid exchange. It may help you avoid a major breakdown.

19,000,000 (million) transmissions fail every year, is yours going to be one of them?!

Let one of our certified technicians perform this service for you.
