Transmissions are often one of the most neglected components on a motor vehicle. Two important types of transmission service include:
- Transmission pan removal and filter replacement
- Transmission fluid exchange
Transmission filter replacement consists of the removal of the transmission pan and the replacement of the filter. The fluid is only partially replaced as only the fluid in the pan can be removed. The drawback of this service is that old fluid and the deposits inside the transmissions passages are not addressed in this procedure.
Transmission fluid exchange consists of exchanging all of the fluid in the transmission with new, fresh fluid. The drawback is that the filter is not replaced. However the transmission fluid can be exchanged after the filter has been replaced.
Layton Carcare’s Utah Automatic Transmission Service Recommendations
At 30,000 mile increments we recommend that the two procedures be alternated. First, we might remove the pan and replace the filter, topping off the transmission with fresh fluid. Then after 30,000 more miles we would perform a total fluid exchange with the BG cleaners and additives.
Layton Carcare’s recommended BG Products
BG Quick Clean for Automatic Transmissions
BG Quick Clean for Automatic Transmissions is a safe and effective solvent/dispersant cleaner that will quickly remove accumulated deposits from the valve body, filter screen and other automatic transmission components. This product is designed for use in the BG Power Flush and Fluid Exchange System.
BG ATC Plus
BG ATC Plus enhances properties of both new and used automatic transmission fluid. It improves fluid oxidation stability, thereby prolonging fluid life and the life of the transmission. It prevents leaks by conditioning hardened seals—keeping them soft and pliable. BG ATC Plus helps control transmission shudder‚ retards formation of sludge and varnish deposits and prevents foaming.
Most transmission services take less than 2 hours.
