Not sure if you need a transmission or brake fluid flush? At CARS, we can test so you know for sure

At CARS of America, we can test your brake, transmission, power steering and differential fluids so we know for certain when they need to be changed.At CARS of America, we can test your brake, transmission, power steering and differential fluids so we know for certain when they need to be changed.

One of the challenges of modern day auto service is striking a balance between recommending preventive maintenance that saves you money in the long run and advising you to spend money on maintenance before it’s truly needed. After all, most preventive maintenance schedules are based on mileage or time and don’t factor in driving habits, road conditions or even your local climate.

This challenge is particularly true when it comes to fluid flushes for transmissions, brakes, coolant, power steering and differentials.

Unless the fluid is in dire need of being flushed–such as trans fluid that’s black and full of metal flakes–it’s difficult to tell just by looking at the fluid if it needs to be flushed or if you have some time yet. This ambiguity makes some consumers uneasy and wary.

Testing transmission, brake and other fluids before recommending fluid flushes

At CARS of America, we’re now relying on science to tell us when your fluids need to be changed. We’ve taken the subjectivity out of the equation by investing in fluid testing technology. It tells us precisely whether you’re brake fluid, power steering fluid, transmission fluid or differential fluid needs to be changed. We no longer have to wonder if we’re over- or under-recommending a service because now we know for sure. And when you come in for an oil change, we’ll test your fluids as part of the service.
