When to Get Your Transmission Flushed?
Part of the joy of owning a fine vehicle is the smooth feeling of rolling down the road as the car accelerates. When the acceleration is sluggish or jerky, that joy is no longer there.
Transmission fluid is vital for keeping your car’s gears running smoothly. On occasion, you need to flush the transmission to remove any particulates built up in the fluid.
Many manufacturers recommend changing the transmission’s fluid regularly, usually every two years or every 30,000 miles. It is important to check your owner’s manual and follow all service recommendations. Even if you follow the manufacturer’s recommendations closely, there may be times when you need to have this transmission flush done more often.
Here are five signs that you need to get your vehicle’s transmission flushed.
Each of these signs can also indicate a more serious transmission problem. Have a qualified mechanic check the transmission for any problems. If the mechanic finds no other issues, a transmission flush may clear up the problem.
