Today, transmissions are extremely sophisticated. Old and dirty transmission fluid could send you to the side of the road very quickly if you are not careful. It is important to take care of your transmission. In the past, the preventative care was changing the fluids and filter when necessary. This particular practice was to remove the transmission pan and replace the filter and what fluid came out in the pan. The issue with that practice is that you may only replace 3-5 quarts out of the possible 15 quarts in the transmission. That’s like only changing 1/5 quarts during a standard 5 quart oil change. A completed transmission flush replaces all the fluid and gives long term protection and reliability. As you may know transmission repairs can be very expensive, so think of this service as a good investment or call it proper preventative maintenance.
