There are several signs that a vehicle is due for a transmission flush, including delay in movement when accelerating, "surging" forward or backward more than expected, slipping gears, problems shifting the gears and noises like grinding. The transmission is very expensive to rebuild or replace, so preventing any large problems with this part is important if you don't want to spend thousands on repair.
Many people wait too long to get transmission fluid changes in Phoenix and Scottsdale, even when they notice strange signals that something may be wrong. As mentioned above, this can cost you big in the long run, so if you're experiencing any of the issues above, bring your vehicle to Airpark's service center right away and let one of our technicians take a look at the problem.
Generally, many of the symptoms listed above are caused when the transmission fluid is old and can no longer effectively cool and lubricate the gears and other mechanisms inside of the transmission. Changing the fluid helps prevent early aging and damage of this vital part, while also preventing lock up/vehicle shut down and improving fuel economy.
