6 Ways You Are Killing Your Car!

6 Ways You Are Killing Your Car! Owning a car can be a dream or a nightmare depending on how well you take care of your vehicle, says the non-profit Car Care Council.

How a Transmission Flush works. When and when not to have one performed.

How a Transmission Flush Works A transmission flush procedure is generally performed using equipment that either runs off the transmission pump or has its own pump built into the machine. The machines are connected to the transmission cooler lines, and while the old fluid is pumped out the new fluid is delivered at the same quantity and time.

The cooling lines, cooler, converter and other parts are all thoroughly cleaned. One of the benefits of this procedure is that all of the transmission fluid is removed and replaced. This is different from a fluid change in which only some or a portion of the fluid is replaced. A simple fluid change cannot remove all of the built up deposits that accumulate over time as is done duri ... read more
