Servicing Your Transmission Fluid

On Tuesday, we broke down the myth of causing harm to your transmission by servicing your transmission fluid. This service is vital to your transmission’s performance, but if not done properly, there are risks. Like topping off your spoiled milk with fresh milk, adding new transmission fluid to old transmission fluid will just taint what’s good. Transmission fluid cleans, cools, and lubricates the internal components of your transmission, so you want to make sure that you’re keeping up on its maintenance.


If you don’t clean out all of the old “spoiled” fluid that captured all of the debris, sludge, and grime from the transmission, and then add new fluid that’s going to continue to clean the system, the debris, sludge, and grime will just be mixed back in with the good fluid. So, when we perform our transmission fluid service, we add an effective cleaner into the system prior to servicing the fluid and we get the fluid up to operating temperature. We then run the transmission through all the gears so we can open and close all of the valves in the transmission. Once we have completed those steps, we begin the actual servicing step, where we flush double the fluid capacity through the system. What that does is remove the old fluid, flush new fluid through it to capture any leftover spoiled fluid or debris, and finally, replace it with brand new fluid. Once we’ve completed that step, we add a conditioner to the system to ensure long lasting lubricity for the next 30,000 Miles.
