transmission checkupIf you went to the doctor’s office because you felt sick, but you couldn’t provide any symptoms or descriptions to help the doctor determine the root of your illness, the appointment would prove a waste of time for you and the doctor. Similarly, a car can’t be serviced until the full extent of its problems become clear. The transmission in particular is a major organ of any car that needs to receive the proper TLC to keep everything moving smoothly (literally!).

Unless you’re a car aficionado, you probably are just happy to drive something that brings you from Point A to Point B without too much hassle. But it’s important to understand what’s under the hood of your car and how it works to transport you safely every day. Certain parts must be carefully maintained to avoid costly part failures and repairs. The transmission, of course, is one of these parts!

Alright, so what role does the transmission play? Your car’s transmission changes the engine’s gears, transfers the engine’s power to the wheels, and generally helps you move forward—sort of an important piece of driving! When you hear cars referred to as “automatic” or “manual”, it’s the transmission being described.

transmissionWhen you take your car for servicing, the mechanic probably recommends a transmission flush, depending on the mileage of it. It’s a service that ranges in price; however, it is a necessary one for the life of a transmission. You should consider several factors when you go about pricing a flush.

Consider These When Looking for a Flush

The first important factor is what make and model the vehicle is. Luxury cars tend to be more expensive than other cars. The second factor is the type of transmission fluid your cars requires. Some cars use special synthetic transmission fluid and that costs more money. The third factor is how many quarts are necessary to refill the transmission. The last factor is where you take your vehicle for servicing. A dealership is generally more expensive than other auto repair shops.
