Transmission Fluid Flush at Knight's Automotive Repair

Why is it needed?

Like other vital automotive fluids, transmission fluid (oil) deteriorates over time. Hard use - such as frequent stop and go driving, driving up and down hills, towing a trailer or boat will accelerate the deterioration. That type of driving raises the operating temperature of the transmission putting strain on both the transmission and the fluid. The fluid which helps facilitate gear shifts, cools the transmission and lubricates your transmission’s moving parts can become contaminated with metal shavings, sludge build up and grime over time, causing failure. Transmission failure is a very expensive repair.

What Do We Do?

Our technicians at Knight’s Automotive Repair will completely remove the old contaminated fluid, clean the transmission system with Valvoline high quality cleaners and replace the fluid (oil) with the transmission fluid type required by your specific vehicle manufacturer. This procedure performed at the proper service intervals will help protect your transmission against wear, high temperature or hard use failures.

How often should I have a Transmission Fluid Flush?

This service is recommended based on your vehicle manufacturer’s service interval schedule and a professional evaluation of the current condition of your transmission fluid.
