Why Do A Transmission Fluid Flush?

If you’re simply following your vehicle’s service manual schedule for changing transmission fluid without considering a synthetic transmission flush, you may not be doing a thorough job. While draining and replacing the fluid provides some improvement, it doesn’t completely clean out all the old fluid, dirt, and grit from your transmission. This leftover contamination can compromise the effectiveness of the new fluid, leading to premature wear and tear on your transmission’s moving parts.

To ensure a comprehensive cleaning, we recommend a transmission fluid flush. This four-step process involves injecting cleaning agents into the transmission to flush out impurities and particles, draining the cleaning agents, vacuuming all fluids from the transmission, and finally refilling it with BG Universal Synthetic ATF.

What are the benefits of a transmission flush?

A transmission flush offers numerous benefits, including:

  1. Cleansing grit and abrasives: By flushing out all impurities, a transmission flush removes harmful particles that can cause damage.
  2. Reduces clutch wear: Clean transmission fluid helps maintain proper clutch function and reduces wear on this critical component.
  3. Prevents seal drying: Fresh fluid helps keep transmission seals lubricated, preventing them from drying out and potentially causing leaks.
  4. Smoother shifting: A flush improves the overall performance of your transmission, resulting in smoother and more responsive gear shifts.
  5. Prolongs transmission life: By removing contaminants and ensuring optimal lubrication, a transmission flush can extend the lifespan of your transmission.
