Looking for Transmission Fluid services in Omaha, NE? The automatic transmission is a very complex assembly; while newer transmissions are very reliable, they do need regular maintenance. Automatic transmission fluid (ATF) lubricates and cools the gears, pumps, valves, bands and other moving parts inside the transmission, as well as helping to transfer power and torque through the whole unit.
It’s very important to use the proper formulation of ATF for your vehicle. At one time, there were only three or four ATF formulations on the market, but today there are a dozen or more. ATFs are custom-blended for specific makes, with different friction properties and additives, and using the wrong brand of ATF can quickly damage or destroy a transmission.
Like motor oil, ATF does break down over time, leaving varnish-like deposits and sediments that can clog valves and other internal assemblies. It’s important to flush old fluid out of the unit and replenish with new ATF at manufacturer’s intervals. Vehicles that see severe usage, such as towing a trailer or hauling heavy loads, should have their transmissions serviced more frequently.
