The transmission is a complicated assembly and many different things may go wrong with it. If you notice problems with your vehicle, don’t automatically assume that the problem is actually the transmission. Computers receive information from numerous sensors, process the information, and then signal/operate the transmission. Often, the problem is in one of the sensors, an electrical connection, or system ground.

Transmissions need regular care and maintenance to stay in good working order, and part of that care is a transmission flush. There can be a bit of confusion around a transmission flush vs transmission fluid change, and those of us here at National Transmission are working hard to help customers like you understand the difference.
Your transmission needs to have the fluid changed regularly to ensure your vehicle drives well and stays in good working order – and to avoid costly transmission repairs in the future. Depending on your circumstances and driving habits, your transmission may simply need a fluid change or it might need a transmission flush.
When your vehicle starts acting up, it can be alarming. You don’t know what the problem is, so you aren’t sure how serious it is or what you should do. Vehicles are made of so many moving parts, it’s hard to tell which one is causing the issue. While it might be tempting to wait and see if the problem gets worse before asking for help, that often only makes the problem worse – especially if the transmission is to blame.
Everything wears out eventually, including your clutch. Under normal driving conditions your clutch should last between 120,000 and 160,000 KM, but if you often pull a trailer, go off-roading, or drive aggressively, you might need a replacement sooner.
