WHEN YOU MAY NEED TO HAVE AN AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION FLUID CHANGE
Keeping up with all the things you want to see and do is a lot easier when you’re good at shifting gears. The same is true of your car. So, if you think your transmission, and specifically your vehicle’s transmission fluid, may need attention, schedule an appointment at a local Goodyear Auto Service near you to have your vehicle’s automatic transmission fluid checked for free.
Signs Transmission Fluid Needs to be Flushed and Changed:
- Your transmission is grinding or making strange noises
- Your vehicle changes gears too quickly or too slowly
- 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
ABOUT OUR AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION FLUID CHANGE
What’s Included with an Automatic Transmission Fluid Change at Goodyear Auto Service?
Our Automatic Transmission Fluid Service starts when we check your transmission fluid and the transmission itself during a free inspection. We use state-of-the-art equipment to check for cleanliness and any possible leaks.
If you choose to proceed with an automatic transmission fluid flush, we’ll thoroughly remove your old fluid and replace it with a high-quality transmission fluid in accordance with your vehicle manufacturer’s recommendations so you can get back on the road with confidence.
What Does Transmission Fluid Do?
Transmission fluid is a liquid that 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 fuel efficiency, and minimize harmful emissions.
When Should Transmission Fluid be Checked and Changed?
We’ve found the most helpful way for our customers to stay on top of their transmission fluid is with a free check during a scheduled Oil Change Service. That way, you have an experienced professional helping to making sure it’s in good condition.
Of course, if you notice fluid stains in your driveway, you need to top off your transmission fluid frequently, or any of your dashboard warning lights come on, be sure to come in sooner.
