Your Toyota transmission system needs regular TLC to perform its best. Transmission service is, unfortunately, something that is regularly skipped during routine Toyota maintenance which can cause long-term transmission problems and costly repairs. Toyota maintenance intervals for transmission service can be found in your owner's manual, but in general, you should be getting your transmission fluid replaced or flushed about every 30,000 miles or every two years, whichever occurs first. You should also be getting a transmission service or a transmission flush anytime the color of your transmission fluid drastically changes or smells burnt.
The Fox Toyota dealership in Clinton (near Knoxville, TN) offers a full list of Toyota routine maintenance services including Toyota transmission service and transmission flush for a fair price. Give us a call to schedule your next appointment today.
The largest difference between a transmission flush and a transmission fluid replacement (commonly referred to as a transmission service) is the amount of fluid that is being replaced. Transmission fluid replacement or service is only changing the fluid that is housed in the pan which is about 50% of the overall transmission fluid. This helps increase the performance of old and dirty fluid and is a much easier (and cheaper) service. A transmission flush will use specialty equipment to drain all of the transmission fluid from the pan, cooler lines, and the torque converter. We encourage car owners to work with their local service center to see which maintenance service is the right choice for their vehicle.
