We all know that regular preventative maintenance can prevent expensive repairs and add years to the lives of our cars and trucks. Transmission fluid should generally be changed every 30,000 miles or so, but drivers who spend long periods in stop-and-go traffic on a regular basis or carry heavy loads may be wise to book a transmission flush or fluid change more often. Modern transmission fluid contains a wide variety of chemical compounds that are designed to prevent wear, inhibit corrosion and keep mechanical components working as their manufacturers intended, but it loses its effectiveness over time. Putting off a transmission fluid change or flush jeopardizes the longevity of automatic transmissions and manual gearboxes and allows sludge and slime to accumulate.
The Importance of Experienced Transmission Flush Technicians
The technicians at All Transmissions & Clutches can perform a transmission flush or fluid change quickly and professionally on any make or model car or truck, and they have the know-how needed to do the job right. Less experienced mechanics who have not been trained to perform a transmission flush properly sometimes fail to remove all of the sludge that has accumulated and instead just succeed in moving it to a different part of the transmission. This can actually do more harm than good and make transmission failures more likely. However, when a transmission fluid change is done right, the compounds in the new transmission fluid can help transmissions to shift more smoothly and last longer.

Automatic Transmission Fluid Does More Than Lubricate
Today’s transmission fluid contains a dizzying combination of compounds and additives, and it should be checked and replaced regularly by experienced technicians if vehicles are to perform at their best.
- Anti-wear additives.
- Rust inhibitors.
- Surfactants to clean and protect metallic surfaces.
- Viscosity modifiers and improvers.
- Seal swell additives to increase temperature tolerances and extend rotational speed ranges.
- Anti-oxidation compounds to reduce boil-off.
- Cold flow improvers.
- High-temperature thickeners.
- Gasket conditioners.
- Pour point depressants.
- Coloring to prevent transmission fluid being mistaken for engine oil.
The Clark County Transmission Fluid Flush Experts
When the technicians at All Transmissions & Clutches perform a transmission fluid change, a professional grade machine is used to make sure that all of the old fluid is removed along with any accumulated grime and sludge. A special solution is run through transmission lines and over the torque converter, and the job is done when this solution comes out completely free of contaminants and clean. The transmission is then inspected, and new fluid is added up to levels specified by the manufacturer. After this work has been completed, we back up the transmission fluid flush with a comprehensive warranty for one year or 12,000 miles that is honored by more than 2,000 transmission shops in Washington and around the country.
