If you need a transmission flush or you’re having transmission troubles, see the certified auto care and auto repair technicians at Tracy’s Automotive.
You’re planning to take the kids to Exploration Place today to get them (and you) out of the house. But on the way there and back, you notice that your car seems to be reluctant to change gears. You’re wondering if you need a transmission flush.
Perhaps. It does sound as if you might be having a problem with your transmission. A Wichita auto care mechanic is the best person to help discover the correct solution to the problem.
Kbb.com notes that transmission flushes – the act of replacing old transmission fluid with new fluid – can be a tricky decision. If you have a car that’s been getting regular transmission fluid changes, then it’s best to continue with regular changes. However, if you have an older car that’s never had its transmission fluid changed, then changing it could actually cause transmission problems.
“If you have a new vehicle or one with service records showing regular transmission fluid changes, continue to do the fluid and filter changes recommended in your vehicle owner’s manual. A qualified service technician should flush and refill the transmission. You should have the filter changed at the same interval to avoid plugging up and causing fluid starvation,” kbb.com says.
Kbb.com adds, “With automatic transmissions that have not been serviced for a while or have no history of service, replacing the old oil with new transmission fluid can actually cause transmission failure. This is because the foreign matter floating in that old fluid (it’s mostly clutch material) is actually helping the internal clutches find their grip.
“If you pour in new clean fluid, it washes that matter away, and the internal clutches begin to slip. This is especially true with vehicles with more than 100,000 miles and no record of regular transmission fluid service. While some technicians feel you should never change the transmission filter, you’ll find, after some thorough online research, you need to change the filter to avoid causing fluid starvation.”
