Transmission filter and fluid exchange

What’s that grinding noise? Is your car shifting hard? When the transmission is having trouble, it’s a bad feeling. Transmission service, repairs or replacement can be expensive. At CK Family Car Care, we see battered and broken transmissions every day. But with regular maintenance, transmission fluid flushes and service, you can avoid a catastrophic failure and keep your car’s transmission healthier for longer.


Modern transmissions are more detailed than ever, but still operate in the same basic way. They transfer energy created by the engine to the wheels. Speaking simply, the transmission is the link between your motor and the wheels; the linchpin of the drivetrain.


Transmission maintenance is different for almost every vehicle. The manufacturer has exact specifications about service schedules, fluid types and more. CK Family Car Care has expertly-trained, ASE-certified, transmission service experts have the latest and greatest tools, service schedules, fluids and parts for your car’s transmission.


The transmission is a complex arrangement of moving parts. Gears and sensors keep the energy transfer from the engine to the wheels smooth. But all this movement and friction creates serious heat. The transmission fluid helps maintain safe and consistent temperatures and lubricates those moving parts. Clean transmission fluid helps maintain the life of this important vehicle component.


A transmission fluid flush involves the complete removal of the old fluid and a cleaning of the system. CK Family Car Care will change any transmission fluid filters if there are any and install new, premium quality transmission fluid.  The CK Family Car Care fluid flush is complete. An ASE certified technician runs a transmission conditioner through the system and then uses clean, premium transmission fluid to clean the system.


This service is critical to the health of your transmission. Transmission fluid breaks down over time because of heat. A transmission inspection and fluid flush could save you thousands in transmission repairs in the future.


Sometimes, repairs or replacement are your only options. CK Family Car Care will make sure of this before any work is performed. It could be something computer-related and not mechanical. Sometimes, a software update can take care of the problem.
