What Is A Transmission Flush?

A transmission flush usually involves connecting your transmission to a professional grade machine to completely flush the transmission fluid out of your vehicle. Running solution through the lines until they come out clean, it then fills your system with new fluid.

A transmission fluid change, on the other hand, simply drains the fluid with gravity. A change usually does not drain all of the fluid but does allow you to replace most of the old with fresh transmission fluid. Both services are helpful and can extend the life of your transmission.

How Do I Know If I Need A Transmission Flush?

There may be times when you need to get a transmission flush, in order to help protect your car’s transmission. Look for any of the following signs:

  • Transmission Grinding or Strange Noises - If you notice your transmission grinding or making strange sounds, you should stop the vehicle and check the transmission fluid level while the engine is still running. Ensure that the transmission fluid color is bright red and not brown or black because of grime or sludge. If the fluid level of the transmission is acceptable, your vehicle probably needs a transmission flush.
  • Problems Shifting Gears - A transmission that contains too much dirt or sludge will cause sluggish response in the transmission which will result in your vehicle changing gears too quickly or too late while driving. In manual transmission vehicles, you may find it very hard to change gears at all.
  • Slipping Gears - A dirty transmission may cause a lack of hydraulic power, much the same as not having enough transmission fluid will cause. In order to stay in the appropriate gear, the transmission must develop enough pressure.
  • Surging of the Vehicle - This is caused by inconsistent flow of clean transmission fluid that is needed to ensure smooth operation of the gears and other moving parts inside the transmission bell housing.
  • Delay in Vehicle Movement - Another sign that your vehicle may have contaminated transmission fluid is when the vehicle stalls for one or two seconds before moving after having been put in gear. If there are no other problems with the transmission, a transmission flush may help.

You should be aware that if the vehicle is displaying these symptoms, your dirty transmission may have already caused bigger problems. If your car is displaying any of these symptoms or having other transmission issues, call us at 850-433-0639 (12th Ave) or 850-479-9009 (Airport) to schedule your Pensacola transmission flush.
