Your Transmission and Transmission Fluid: The Big Picture
Transmissions are a vital component of all types of cars. The transmission shifts into different gears so that the engine is most efficient at varying speeds and can provide the necessary torque to accelerate quickly. To carry this out, a transmission has a complex system of parts and gears, all working in harmony to keep your car running smoothly. Because of this complexity, the transmission needs the right blend of oil and lubricants to keep cool and work properly, and that mixture is known as transmission fluid.
What We Can Do for Your Transmission
While all cars have transmissions, not all cars have the same transmissions, transmission fluids, or even methods of checking and changing those fluids. To make it even more difficult, the state of your transmission fluid depends on what kind of terrain your car drives on frequently, the weather you normally drive in, and even what kind of driving you do! Thankfully, our certified technicians at Ourisman Chevrolet are here to help. Our state-of-the-art facility has all the tools and information necessary to check, flush, and exchange your transmission fluid, no matter what kind of car you drive! We’ll make sure your car’s fluids are perfect for your situation.
Flush, Check, Exchange; We Can Handle it All
Checking fluid isn’t just a matter of knowing how much you have; it involves knowledge of your specific car, your driving situation, and the chemical composition of your fluid. Our team can help you check your fluid and let you know how often you should have it exchanged or flushed. An exchange is when we remove the dirty fluid from your transmission and add some clean fluid, while a flush is when we empty the fluid and purge it all before adding completely new fluid. Our technicians are happy to help you know what’s right for your car and driving habits.
