Transmission Service in Madison Heights, MI
Your car's transmission contains a multitude of components working together to keep it moving. It also contains a transmission fluid that facilitates cooling, lubrication, force, and pressure. Lubrication allows the moving parts to operate among one another, producing less friction and heat. There are two types of transmissions - automatic and manual. An automatic transmission contains synthetic liquids and oils combined with chemical additives. On the other hand, manual transmission fluids contain gear oil, motor oil, and sometimes an addition of automatic transmission fluid.
A transmission fluid flush is a routine car maintenance procedure that involves draining out the old transmission oil and replacing it with new fluid. Dirty, old, too little, or excess transmission fluid levels can cause major damage to your transmission system. Consequently, an underperforming transmission system lowers your vehicle's performance and can be dangerous if left unattended. At Interstate Auto Care, we offer a wide range of thorough transmission inspections, maintenance, and repair services for our clients in Madison Heights and surrounding areas including Troy, Clawson, Warren, Sterling Heights, and Royal Oaks.
