Transmission Service

In order to function properly, your transmission requires fluid . Acting as a lubricant for the transmission, transmission fluid helps prevent excessive wear and tear of parts. Because of its crucial role in your transmission’s function, your vehicle may provide signals when it is in need of a fluid flush.

The service center at Kia of Riverdale is happy to provide transmission service and maintenance to ensure your vehicle is running at peak performance. We have your guide to understand when your transmission is in need of a fluid flush.

Irregular Noises

As transmission fluid circulates through the different pieces, it is likely to pick up debris. Contaminated fluid will leave parts without proper lubrication causing the transmission to make grinding or loud sounds while driving.

Trouble Staying in the Correct Gear

With a restricted flow of fluid your transmission will lack the proper pressure to stay in gear, causing it to slip gears. Much the same, contaminated fluid will cause irregular resistance when switching gears in manual and automatic transmissions alike.

Sudden Surges

If you feel your vehicle unexpectedly surge forward or backward, this can be an indication of a dirty transmission. With debris prohibiting proper fluid flow, your vehicle may suddenly jump forward or backwards without any warning.
