Why Do A Transmission Fluid Flush?

If you are changing your transmission fluid as per your vehicles service manual schedule without  a synthetic transmission flush you are following instructions but you  probably aren’t doing a complete and thorough job.

Simply draining existing transmission fluid and replacing it with new fluid does provide an improvement to warn out  transmission fluid which is necessary but if you don’t do a thorough flush with a full flush with synthetic transmission fluid you aren’t cleaning away all of the old fluid and the dirt and grit in your transmission. These left behind particles remain in the system and contaminate the new transmission fluid. This contamination reduces the lubrication and protection of the new fluid which results in premature wear and tear of the moving parts in your transmission.
What is involved in a transmission flush?
A transmission flush is a 4 step process:
  • Inject cleaning agents into the transmission to flush all impurities and particles
  • Drain – cleaning agents from transmission
  • Vacuum all fluids form the transmission
  • Refill with BG Universal Synthetic ATF
