What maintenance services are available for my transmission?
We can either condition the transmission fluid or replace the fluid.
Conditioning the transmission fluid entails running a conditioners and additives through the fluid to fortify and revitalize the transmission fluid.
Replacing the fluid has a different process depending on the vehicle. On a manual transmission, the process is generally as simple as draining the fluid our and refilling it with new fluid. On an automatic transmission, generally we will to pull the old fluid out one side while simultaneously pumping new fluid in the other side until your transmission is full of fresh fluid. We also add a conditioner in this process to help clean the transmission while we change the fluid.

My transmission is making weird noises, does that mean I need new transmission fluid?
No, unfortunately these maintenance services are only good for preventing things from breaking - if something is already broken then these maintenance services aren't going to help. We would recommend scheduling an appointment so that one the transmission specialists in our Service Department can figure out what's going on.
