When we perform a transmission flush, we’ll connect your vehicle to high-end machinery to remove all the liquid.
The transmission on a vehicle helps to control and apply the power produced by the engine. This component relies on fluid to lubricate the metal parts and bearings inside the gearbox, preventing them from grinding together and wearing out as they move. Both automatic and manual transmissions use this type of fluid to maintain the proper temperature as well. This fluid can create hydraulic pressure and friction within an automatic transmission, which allows the internal components to move as needed. Over time, transmission fluid can get dirty and require replacement. When the fluid needs to be replaced, you might notice that your transmission makes grinding sounds or other strange noises, is slow to move, or has trouble shifting between gears.
The process of removing and replacing transmission fluid is known as a transmission flush. It is an aspect of preventive maintenance that many auto owners overlook, but failing to have it done when needed can cause damage to your transmission, which is expensive and time-consuming to repair. Transmission fluid is typically bright-to-dark red in color, but as it gets darker and closer to black, this is an indication that it needs to be replaced. Our team at Johnny’s Muffler & Auto Express offers transmission flush services for vehicle owners located throughout Salisbury, North Carolina.
When we perform a transmission flush, we’ll connect your vehicle to high-end machinery to remove all the liquid. The process runs a solution through the lines until it comes out clean, and then we refill the reservoir with clean transmission fluid. This helps your vehicle run smoothly and protects the transmission.
