Driving a vehicle with automatic transmission?
Then this subject is particularly relevant to you. Automatic transmissions ensure that the engine always is always operating within its ideal efficiency range. With the rising complexity of transmission control resulting from an increase in the number of gears from 5 to 9, the performance requirements of the transmission are also increasing. This is noticeable in the enormous thermal and mechanical strain on the transmission fluid. The consequence of this is higher wear and therefore increased service requirements.
If the transmission fluid is not changed in good time, the dirt and metallic abraded matter could cause costly mechanical damage in the gearbox. That’s why manufacturers of transmission fluids – and increasingly vehicle manufacturers as well – recommend transmission fluid changes, depending on mileage and driving style. The same applies for so-called “lifetime fluids”. Previously, it simply wasn’t possible to effect a complete change in lubrication, since it was inevitable that the new fluid was contaminated with the remains of the old fluid.
The automatic transmission fluid service device allows the fluid to be replaced virtually 100 percent without the new fluid mixing with the old. It’s the only way to ensure that the new fluid is able to work to its full performance. Gear Tronic II stops expensive mistakes from happening and prevents overfills or underfills. The device is therefore the perfect all-round solution for flushing, carrying out transmission fluid changes and adding additives – easily, quickly and reliably.
Positive effects of the automatic transmission fluid service:
- Optimized gear shifting
Eliminates any shifting delays and rough shifting operations right through to the loss of whole gears
- Lower fuel consumption
Soft and early gear shifting has a positive impact on fuel consumption.
- Less wear
Flushing the transmission in combination with additives ensures quieter operation and less wear in the transmission.
- Increased service life
Most manufacturers recommend changing the transmission fluid every 60,000 km or 4 to 6 years.
