HomeBlogWhen Should You Get a Transmission Flush?

Your car’s transmission is what helps connect the power from your car’s engine to its wheels. A transmission flush eliminates old transmission fluid and replaces it with new fluid to help prevent transmission issues. You don’t need a transmission flush as often as you need an oil change or other minor car maintenance, but that doesn’t mean you should completely forget about it. Failing to get a transmission flush can have major consequences for the wellbeing of your car. So when should you get a transmission flush?

When Should You Get a Transmission Flush

Your car’s owner’s manual should let you know how often a transmission flush is necessary for your specific vehicle. However, there are some warning signs to look out for that indicate you need a transmission flush service sooner than you would’ve thought. For example, if your car is surging back and forth when you’re driving, that means there is likely an issue with your transmission fluid that is preventing it from flowing properly. Another warning sign is a grinding noise. Grinding indicates that the transmission fluid is too dirty to do its job and should be flushed out as soon as you are able to replace it with clean transmission fluid.
