How do I know I need my transmission fluid flushed?

- Your gears start to slip
- Your car is jumping or surging forward, or falling backward, for no good reason
- Your vehicle stalls for one or two seconds before moving between gears
Importance of transmission fluid maintenance
Transmission fluid cools, lubricates, and provides necessary pressure to the transmission. Over time, however, transmission fluid loses its ability to clean, cool, and lubricate, potentially leading to overheating and failure of the transmission.
Routine transmission fluid flushes help to prevent costly repairs by replacing protective additives that help your transmission maintain proper shifting. Transmission fluid replacements also help to maximize your vehicle’s performance, improve is fuel efficiency, and minimize harmful emissions.
How often should I get my transmission fluid checked?
