Routine visits to Maximum Overdrive Transmission adds year's to your vehicle's life.
When we do a transmission service, the first thing we do is scan and road test the vehicle to get an idea of the general health of the transmission. We then drain the fluid, remove the pan and check the condition of the fluid remaining in the pan. Fresh transmission fluid will be bright red but will darken over use and time. If the fluid smells burnt it's a sign of a problem. We then clean the pan and check for an unusual amount of metal shavings (A small amount is completely normal.) which can indicate an internal transmission problem. We then install a new gasket (if needed) and filter, refill with fluid and check for leaks.
A transmission service is one way to prolong the life of your transmission. We recommend servicing your transmission every 30,000 - 60,000 miles depending usage and type of vehicle/ transmission fluid. There seems to be a misconception that a transmission service is a transmission fix. A transmission service is strictly a maintenance procedure, just like changing your oil. In 99.99% of cases a service will not fix a transmission problem.
