Transmission Service

Expect driving excellence when you get the best transmission service.

Car transmission service is an essential part of every routine car care, similar to an oil change. It involves flushing out the old transmission fluid and replacing it with a new set. The service can also include cleaning and inspecting the sump pump, the filter, and the pan, as well as installing a new pan gasket.

For Mercedes-Benz, it’s recommended to change the fluid every 80,000 to 100,000 miles or after five years of service. Meanwhile, for BMWs, transmission fluid change is recommended at approximately 80,000 miles for the automatic model or when the fluid has become dirty.

If you’re driving a BMW, Mercedes-Benz, or other luxury vehicles, Destin Imports is your best choice. We are a specialized shop that provides affordable, top-notch OEM parts for these two elegant automobiles apart from exclusive repair and maintenance services, including transmission service.

Signs It's Time to Call for Transmission Service

A car transmission is an intricate piece of machinery that requires constant care. The fluid in your transmission functions in the same way as oil in an engine. It lubricates all the moving parts of the transmission mechanism. When it ages, it loses the ability to serve its function.

Here are some signs you need to call for transmission service:

1. Grinding Noises

A grinding sound that occurs when shifting is one of the most common signs of transmission trouble. This is usually caused by a low transmission fluid level in the tranny.

2. Transmission Fluid Leak

A leaky transmission can come out as reddish spots collecting under your car. This can lead to low fluid levels that can damage your transmission and will require either a rebuild or replacement.

3. Delayed Shifting

An automatic transmission should shift smoothly between gears and without delay if it is fitted properly. Otherwise, the transmission will rev too high when you shift.

4. Burning Odor

Transmission fluid that smells slightly sweet alongside a burning odor is an indication that it has overheated. This can cause friction among the moving parts.

5. Transmission Warning Light

Most cars have a dashboard indicator light for your transmission. When this lights up, it warns you that your vehicle is overheating. The light may also be telling you that the car electronics are malfunctioning if it’s running under a computer system.
