Car Care Tip of the day

How often should I change my transmission fluid? 

15,000 to 30,000 Miles.

Modern automotive transmissions and their related parts suffer from overheating due to downsizing, high operating temperatures and cramped quarters. This causes the automatic transmission fluid (ATF) to oxidize rapidly, affecting the performance of the transmission in many ways.

Conventional drain and fill methods of changing the transmission fluid can only remove about one third of the transmission’s actual fluid capacity. The remaining large quantity of old, oxidized fluid simply contaminates the new fluid and often the mixture causes more damage than if the old fluid had been left alone. Also, no efforts were made to chemically clean the inside of the transmission because the dissolved contaminates could not be removed.

The BG PF5 Power Flush and Fluid Exchange System is the ultimate solution to effective transmission maintenance for all types of vehicles, regardless of age.
