Does my car need a Transmission Flush?

A transmission flush is only relevant for automatic transmissions. The most common warning signs (from most revealing to least revealing) are:

  • difficult or impossible to select gears
  • slipping occurs during gear shifts
  • frequently missing gear shifts
  • discoloured transmission oil ie. a dark brown colour (in most cases it should be red)
  • transmission oil smells burnt
  • over 30,000 kms since last transmission flush

What could happen if I just ignore the problem?

You face the risk of:

  • a total inability to select gears,
  • leading to a possible roadside
  • breakdown
  • causing extensive damage to transmission, costing you thousands of dollars to repair
