Transmission fluid service – Automatic vehicles

A transmission service is part of your routine maintenance, just like replacing your engine oil.

Transmission gears deliver power from the engine to the drive wheels, shifting automatically to provide the best power and efficiency for your driving speed. A special transmission fluid cools and lubricates the gears. Over time, this fluid degrades, and its lubricant qualities diminish. Changing the fluid at the correct intervals can help prevent premature wear and damage to the transmission.  We remove the old transmission fluid and replacing it with new, clean fluid of the grade recommended by your vehicle manufacturer.

Transmission fluid lubricates, cools and cleans internal components of the transmission. It also helps to maintain the hydraulic pressure necessary for the transmission to function. The additives in the transmission fluid can be depleted over time. The transmission drain and fill service includes:

  • remove the transmission fill/drain plug to remove the old automatic transmission fluid
  • reinstall transmission fill/drain plug
  • refill the transmission with new automatic transmission fluid to the proper level
  • transmission filter replacement
  • remove the transmission pan
  • remove the old gasket material
  • replace the pan gasket with a new gasket and reinstalling the pan
  • refill the transmission with new automatic transmission fluid to the proper level

 

Transmission exchange Service – Manual Vehicles

Manual transmission fluid provides lubrication to gears, bearings, shafts, and other internal components. Heat, pressure and friction can slowly breakdown the additives in the manual transmission fluid. In addition, small particles of metal may come off the gears as they wear, and these metal particles can mix with the fluid. Fluids can also become contaminated with water.  Our manual transmission service includes:

  • drain or evacuate the old manual transmission fluid
  • fill the manual transmission fluid with the manufacturer’s recommended type and quantity of new fluid
