What Is A Transmission Flush?

A-1 Auto Tech, Inc. 89 Pioneer Way Mountain View, CA 94041 (650) 487-2240A-1 Auto Tech, Inc. is the best Transmission Flush Auto Repair Shop in the Mountain View, CA area. A transmission flush is pretty much just what it sounds like. You flush it out and clean it. In other words to do a transmission flush you drain out all of the dirty old transmission oil or fluid, and you replace it with fresh clean transmission oil.

When you flush out your transmission, just like when changing engine oil, if there are bits or shavings of metal at the bottom this could indicate excessive wear and a bigger problem brewing in the transmission. Also sometimes the transmission fluid will look or smell burnt, which is also indication of a possible problem.

This is why it is wiser to have transmission repair experts like A-1 Auto Tech, Inc. be the ones to do your transmission flush. We can identify problems oil change and tune up facilities just can’t. This can save you money by catching problems early.

How Often Do You Need To A Transmission Flush?

  • Manual Transmission: Most manufacturers recommend that a manual transmission oil or fluid be changed every 30,000 miles or two years, whichever comes first. Under heavy-duty higher stress use, some manufacturers suggest changing transmission fluid every 15,000 miles.
  • Automatic Transmission: Most manufacturers recommend that an automatic transmission be serviced every 60,000 to 100,000 miles; changing it more often does not hurt anything. Most mechanics change their own more often than that. A good rule of thumb is to check it each time you change your engine oil. If it looks dark, discolored or smells burnt, have a professional look at it.
