Fluid being poured into vehicle

The condition of your transmission fluid can tell you a lot about the condition of the transmission itself. At Fast Lane Auto Repairs in Owensboro, KY, we want to help you be aware of what to look for and what we look for when servicing your transmission. 

Brown/Dirty Fluid - Depending on what type of fluid your transmission calls for, color may vary - but typically transmission is a clear, reddish color when it’s in good shape. If your fluid is dirty or murky, it needs to be changed, and be inspected by a professional. This condition can arise from debris or water entering the transmission, neither of which are good for your car, truck, or SUV. It also indicates excessive clutch plate wear.

Metal in Fluid - If your transmission looks glittery, or you can see metal shavings in it, something isn’t right. Metal parts somewhere in your transmission are wearing out - a small amount of this is to be expected, but have one of our technicians check it out to see if it’s a matter of concern.

Burnt Fluid - Burnt fluid will appear dark, and carry a heavy and unpleasant scent. If your fluid is burnt, the transmission is most likely slipping inside or overheating, resulting in the degradation of your transmission fluid.

If your fluid looks bad, bring it into us at Fast Lane Auto Repairs and have it completely flushed and replaced it immediately. It may save you from an entire transmission replacement, and our technicians will get a chance to check out the condition of your transmission. 

No matter your maintenance or repair needs, we’ve got you covered! For the best transmission service shop in Owensboro, KY call or stop by Fast Lane Auto Repairs today.
