MINI Hardtop Transmission Flush

A transmission flush is ordinarily twice the price of a fluid change due to the amount of time the service takes and the fact that the flush not only replaces the fluid in the pan but also removes fluid from the cooler lines and distinctive components of your transmission. A MINI Hardtop transmission flush also uses about 10 quarts of fluid to completely clean and flush out the system.

A transmission flush is only paramount if your system contains dirt or debris. If the fluid is extremely dark or contains distinct sediments, we would indicate a complete system flush instead of just exchanging the fluid.

MINI Hardtop Automatic vs Manual Transmission

Automatic and manual transmission will frequently require divergent fluids. Automatic transmission fluids are commonly thinner and are frequently red or green in color. Manual transmission fluid or gear oil is thicker due to additives and disparate compounds necessary to lubricate the gearbox and disparate components. Manual transmissions have a higher friction environment due to the way gears are replaced, thus the lubricant is divergent.

Not only are the fluids other between manual and automatic transmissions but the level of heat the fluids experience is particularly other. Automatic transmissions generate a lot more heat and thus the fluid in your transmission must be changed more continually. If you don't change your MINI Hardtop transmission fluid, your transmission will have broken metal shavings and other corrosive material spread throughout the awesome components of your MINI Hardtop. You should continually check the fluid levels between your fluid and transmission flush service intervals. In sufficient cases, manual transmissions don't come equipped with a dipstick to check your fluid levels, so it can be highly laborious to do. Call or visit Crown MINI of Richmond for more information if your transmission doesn't contain a dipstick.
