Your car’s transmission is a complex system that requires regular maintenance to keep it running at peak performance. Transmission repair is one of most costly problems your car can encounter, and transmission problems are definitely something that we all want to avoid.
The most important thing that you can do to insure the health of your transmission is to pay attention to the condition of your transmission fluid. A transmission fluid change is necessary if the transmission fluid is dirty, or has lost its ability to lubricate the transmission. The manufacturer of your car will also recommend a transmission fluid change or a transmission flush at a certain mileage interval.
Not every transmission service is a full transmission flush. When Boulder Auto Service and Repair does a transmission flush, we use a special transmission flush machine to pull all the old fluid (most cars take 16 quarts of transmission fluid!) from the transmission. We then replace the old fluid with clean, full synthetic ATF, along with some special conditioners. Using a full synthetic ATF is very important, and insures that your transmission will be fully protected for a longer period of time.
If your car should begin to exhibit transmission problems (slipping from one gear to another, failure to change gears when it should, hesitating to move when you put it in drive or reverse) Boulder Auto Service and Repair can diagnose the problem and inform you of their recommendation, and your options.
Sometimes, just adding transmission fluid, or doing a transmission flush will fix minor transmission problems. If your car requires a more extensive transmission repair, you can count on Boulder Auto Service and Repair to get the job done as quickly, and as inexpensively as possible. Call us at 303-442-8717
