Signs that car shows when it is in need of a transmission flush

Getting a transmission flush every 30,000 miles is highly advisable on the other hand, at times you need to get a transmission flush sooner in order to protect your car’s transmission. There are a number of common signs that you need to perform for a transmission flush on your car or truck.

Break up of transmission or strange clatters: this is the very first sign; you get to notice your transmission breaking up or making some bizarre sounds. In this case, you should stop the vehicle and check for the transmission fluid level while still the engine is running. A transmission contaminated with dirt, grease and sludge can flaunt indications very similar to insufficient levels of transmission fluid. It is always good to check for your transmission fluid color quite often and if you find it to be in bright red then its fine. On the other hand, if it is of brown or black then it is good to consult with your auto mechanic regarding this.

Shifting Gears issue:   
Irrespective of the transmission type you have, it is a must to have a clean     transmission fluid that flows easily throughout your car’s transmission. Automatic or manual, it is necessary to maintain it properly. A sluggish response will be given off when this interior part contains too much dirt or sludge and it will result in swift change of gears or too late while driving. In case of manual transmission it is going to be an issue.

Delay in Vehicle Movement:
Yet another sign that any vehicle will show is interruption or delay in vehicle movement. The vehicle freezes for one or two seconds prior to moving after having been put in gear. A transmission flush may help if there are no other problems with the transmission.
You should be attentive that if the vehicle is showing off these symptoms, your dirty transmission may have previously caused bigger problems.
