A transmission flush is a preventative maintenance process that protects the transmission and helps it run better for longer. Transmission fluid flows throughout the bell housing to lubricate the gears and help the transmission run smoothly, meaning that the entire system relies on the fluid to be fully-functional. Transmission fluid must be clean to effectively flow and protect the components of the gear box. When sludge and grime are present, a transmission flush is needed to clean out dirt and contaminants and replace the oil. At L&R Transmissions in Winston Salem, NC, our ASE certified technicians have decades of experience with transmissions, and have the expert training and equipment to perform transmission flushes at the right time for your specific vehicle. They can check the color of the oil to detect contaminants that build up over time and hinder transmission performance. If it is time for a fluid flush, our specialists can notify you and get right to work.
If your car, truck, tractor or 4×4 frequently travels on rough terrain, enormous amounts of sand, dirt and debris may accumulate more frequently in the transmission. Excessive grime, dust and soot in the fluid severely inhibits the function of the transmission, causing loud grinding sounds, vehicle jerking and lurching, and slipping gears. You may have difficulty changing gears smoothly due to inconsistent fluid flow throughout the transmission components, causing sudden surging. These signs of a dirty transmission are your indication that your vehicle needs professional attention right away. Contaminated fluid decreases power and may cause even bigger problems for your drivetrain, so don’t delay. Visit L&R Transmissions today!
