Vehicle owners often neglect Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF) services, which can lead to automatic transmission shifting problems and premature repairs or replacement. Most automatic transmission failures are due to overheating and fluid contamination. It is important to have your ATF flushed in proper intervals. And unfortunately, many automotive shops don’t perform this service properly. A typical transmission drain-and-refill service replaces only 40% of the old contaminated ATF, leaving the remainder trapped inside valve bodies, the torque converter, and transmission cooler lines.
At Lake Arbor Automotive & Truck, we will perform an ATF flush the right way, safely removing sludge and varnish deposits and replacing over 95% of the used fluid. We also use conditioners to the fresh ATF to extend ATF life, revitalize seals and O-rings and help maintain smooth shifting.
Performing this service properly can save you from costly repairs down the road. Call us today to schedule your ATF maintenance.
