Transmission Service vs. Transmission Flush

Better Mechanical Service in Albuquerque, New Mexico

Transmission fluid is necessary for smooth gear shifting. To keep your transmission healthy, Quanz Auto Care performs manufacturer-scheduled transmission service rather than transmission flushes.

What is the Difference between a Transmission Service and a Flush?

A transmission service includes:

  • Changing transmission fluid
  • Changing transmission fluid filter

During this service, most of the old transmission fluid is drained and replaced with new fluid.

A transmission flush entails forcing all old transmission fluid out of the system with new fluid. This service does not include a filter change.

Why We Do Transmission Service

Transmission service is what nearly all vehicle manufacturers recommend for routine transmission maintenance. Gently draining and replacing the majority of the fluid ensures good quality lubrication for the transmission. Replacing the filter prevents debris from building up in the fluid and compromising transmission performance.

The forceful removal of transmission fluid during a flush can potentially harm the system. Moreover, there is no filter change, so old debris is still in the system, and nothing is removing new debris from the fluid.
