When was the last time your vehicle’s transmission was flushed? While this service, like many others, can be easy to overlook, transmission flushes play a key role in maintaining a smooth-running vehicle. The transmission is one of the more complex components of a vehicle, as it is responsible for the shifting of gears and ensuring that power produced by the engine is used properly. Transmission fluid serves as a lubricant and coolant for the components of the transmission, and over time metal shavings, dust and other particles dirty the transmission fluid. Therefore, it is important to have transmission flushed routinely. If it’s time to have the transmission fluid flushed and replaced in your vehicle, schedule a service appointment today. For those who need a transmission flush in Moline, IL, visit us at Hiland Toyota!
How can I tell when it is time to have a transmission flush?
The manufacturer’s recommendation for transmission flush frequency is listed in the vehicle’s owner’s manual. While the transmission flush interval may vary depending on transmission type, make, model and year, transmission fluid should typically be changed every 30,000 to 60,000 miles in most vehicles. There are a few tell tale signs that transmission fluid should be replaced, including slipping gears, delayed acceleration, gear grinding and hard shifting. Another way to determine if transmission fluid needs to be changed is by checking the color—if the fluid is a brown or burnt shade, it needs to be replaced.
