Strange noises, grinding, gear slips, and unexplained surging are warning signs that your Ford medium-duty truck could need a transmission flush. If left unaddressed, a dirty transmission can lead to more significant problems and more expensive repairs. Instead, bring your commercial truck in for service at Skaha Ford in BC to protect your investment. The transmission fluid in your Ford is crucial to its reliable operation. It acts as a lubricant and a hydraulic fluid that supports gear changes, keeps the transmission cool, and greases moving parts. Unfortunately, the fluid will degrade faster if you operate under severe conditions, transport big loads, or tow frequently, necessitating a flush. Transmission fluid can also collect dirt and particles over time, leading to mechanical issues if not taken care of. When you schedule your medium-duty truck for an inspection, our Ford factory-trained experts with Red Seal certifications will examine your transmission fluid to see whether it's in good shape or if it needs to be replaced. If a flush is required, the old fluid will be removed and replenished with new, restoring your truck's performance and ensuring smooth shifting and gear changes.
