Q&A

Question:

What is the difference between a transmission flush vs. a transmission service?

Answer:

A transmission flush consists of running a large amount of brand new transmission fluid into the transmission via a machine. This can be done with the vehicle running or not depending on the machine. It will remove and replace almost all of the fluid. A transmission service consists of removing the transmission pan and replacing the filter and gasket, this service only removes the fluid from the pan and sometimes the transmission converter. Transmission fluid is very high in detergents so if a flush is done on a transmission that has problems it will most likely finish the transmission off. Here at Advanced Automotive Services we will only do a transmission service on the first initial visit, this allows us to look inside the transmission pan to determine if any potential damage has occurred plus we are able to change the filter out at this time. The next service on the transmission we would do a flush if all is ok with the transmission. This helps protect your investment of your vehicles transmission plus gives us some insight on your transmissions condition.
