Transmission Flush in Durham, NC

Keep Your Transmission Clean and Lubricated

Although many people think about replacing their motor oil, seldom do they think the same when it comes to transmission fluid. Like motor oil does for the engine, transmission fluid helps keep the transmission clean and lubricated, allowing the system to perform properly. But once this fluid becomes worn and dirty, it could cause significant problems. At Cottman Transmission and Total Auto Care, we make sure your vehicle is always filled with quality transmission fluid. Our experienced technicians expertly perform transmission flushes that can remove the old fluid from the transmission without damaging the system. From there, they’ll quickly add the new fluid and get you on your way so you can experience the benefits immediately. When you opt for service with us, know that your transmission will always be filled with fresh, clean fluid that’ll have it performing at its best.

Do You Need a Transmission Flush?

Similar to motor oil, it’s important to have the transmission fluid changed now and then. The recommended time is every two years or 30,000 miles, but there may be times where you’ll need to have the fluid replaced sooner. How exactly can you tell? Well, there are a couple of warning signs that you should be aware of, and it’s important you act quickly once you notice them. Here’s what you should look out for:

Poor Shifting

Does it seem like your car takes an extra second or two to respond after shifting gears? If you feel that your transmission system is acting sluggish, there may be something wrong with the transmission fluid. Clean fluid flows through the transmission easier, making many of the actions smoother and quicker. If there’s dirty transmission fluid within the system, the dirt and sludge within it could be responsible for the slow and delayed movement. It’s both a bothersome and dangerous issue to deal with, so recommend a transmission flush as soon as possible.


Does it feel like your vehicle jolts forward shortly after shifting gears? If so, that’s a clear indicator that your transmission system is using old, dirty transmission fluid. Dirty fluid inhibits proper flow within the transmission, and if your vehicle jolts forward, it’s because of the inconsistent flow of transmission fluid. Fortunately, this is an easy sign to catch, so when you notice it we recommend you seek professional help immediately.
