Just like your engine, you should have your Automatic Transmission serviced regularly. When Jacksonville Auto Repair services your transmission, we have two different yet effective services we offer :
1st) Our Trans Tech service uses a machine to back flush transmission fluid (like a transfusion).
This removes almost all dirty fluid from transmission, torque converter & transmission cooler, replacing the old dirty worn out fluid with new fresh fluid.
With this service we do not remove the transmission pan or filter, but the dirt is removed into the machine through the back wash.
2nd) This service is more labor intensive and it only removes fluid that was in transmission oil pan, but its still a great service.
- Remove and inspect the pan
- Clean or replace the screen
- Clean the pan
- Reinstall the pan
- Install a new gasket
- Replace old transmission fluid with new, high quality fluid
By replacing the old transmission fluid, the expert team at Jacksonville Auto Repair essentially gives your vehicle’s transmission new life. The new fluid restores your clutch’s holding power. This reduces slip and heat production. Additionally, flushing the old fluid gets rid of small bits of clutch material and metal shavings, which can damage your transmission by clogging passages and wedging themselves between moving parts. Getting rid of the old fluid reduces wear within the transmission.
Replacing old fluid with new also provides better lubrication within the transmission, which boosts the holding ability of the transmission’s friction components. Improved lubrication also results in less heat. By decreasing friction and heat, your transmission will work better for a longer amount of time. A simple service can save you the money and time that come with a major transmission repair or replacement.
