Auto Transmission Fluid Exchange
BEST PRICE PROMISE
With the high proportion of automatic transmission vehicles on the road, it makes sense to keep this capability in-house. Making simple work of scheduled service interval fluid changes, an automatic transmission fluid exchanger also offers a clean ‘first option’ for fixing problems including ‘sealed for life’ boxes. A simple flush and refill can often cure the problem and is an easy option to sell before going to the expense of a full strip-out at a specialist.
