Transmission Flush Service at Audi Oklahoma City

You may seldom notice when your vehicle shifts gears, but it's a critical part of the performance. Your transmission must be maintained to ensure smooth shifting and a reliable ride. Transmission flush service at Audi Oklahoma City will help keep you cruising around Oklahoma City, Edmond, and Norman.

What is a Transmission Flush?

Flushing your transmission is a service provided by Audi Oklahoma City to remove the old transmission fluid and replace it with new. The fluid helps keep your transmission lubricated so that it can change gears easily. It also helps keep the transmission cool.

As you put more miles on your car, truck, or SUV, grime, dirt, and other particles can get into the transmission, which causes it to generate more heat. They can cause issues when you shift or accelerate.

The transmission fluid helps maximize the life of your transmission and enhance performance. Since the transmission is one of the most expensive components on your vehicle, you want to keep it in prime condition for as long as possible.

Changing the transmission fluid isn't the same as a flush. When you have it changed, it removes a little over half of the fluid. New is added to fill it up to the correct level and the filter is replaced. A transmission flush replaces all the fluid and cleans the system from particles. The pan is cleaned and inspected for damage. New fluid is added with none of the old retained.

Service Times for Transmission Flush

You should check your owner's manual to know how often the transmission should be flushed. Most models will say around every three to five years or 30,000 to 50,000 miles. You should replace the fluid more often, about every two years.

If you're unsure how often to have these service tasks performed, talk to the team at Audi Oklahoma City. We can get you scheduled for a flush or fluid change.

How to Tell When Service is Needed for Your Transmission

You should bring your vehicle to Audi Oklahoma City if you notice the following signs:

  • You see dark red or brown fluid on the dipstick when you check the transmission fluid.
  • If the engine engages but the vehicle is delayed, it may mean the transmission is slipping.
  • If you notice a different feel or sound when shifting gears, it may mean the fluid needs to be replaced or you have a leak.

Even if you don't notice any problems with the transmission, you should still get it serviced regularly. The service technician can inspect the parts and let you know if they see any potential issues. Regular routine service, such as transmission flushes, will keep your vehicle running smoothly for longer.
