Every Buick and GMC model has a manual or automatic transmission system. Transmissions perform a vital function by delivering engine power to the drive wheels as variable torque. Manual transmissions require the driver to engage the preferred gear to achieve the desired speed. Automatic transmissions feature computerized mechanics that engage the most efficient gear contingent upon the fuel pedal input, road slope/grade, and engine RPMs. Transmissions get the job done via a complex arrangement of moving parts necessary to change gears smoothly and quickly. The transmission’s moving parts require lubrication. Transmission fluid collects debris like metal shavings and requires exchange service at the recommended interval. GM recommended transmission fluid exchange depending upon the transmission, fluid type, and driving conditions.
GM-certified transmission fluid exchange service starts as the certified technician extracts the old fluid from the transmission. We inspect the transmission gaskets, housing, and cooler lines for problems before installing OEM fluid to the specified capacity.
