Signs you may need to maintain your auto transmission system
Are you experiencing problems with your car transmission? Do you feel a lag in response when you depressed the accelerator to overtake another vehicle on one of our Singapore expressways? Have you heard clunking or grinding sounds coming from your auto transmission system? Do you feel your gears slipping? It could be that your auto transmission is overheating and a cooler system is needed if you frequently drive with heavy loading, or the transmission components have broken down and need repair or a full overhaul. Otherwise, it could also be that you need a auto transmission fluid top up, or that it has deteriorated and you need auto transmission fluid change.
When auto transmission fluid change is needed
The auto transmission fluid provides lubrication for, and keeps cool and clean the components of transmission. Depending on your car manufacturer’s recommendations, and whether your car is a manual or automatic transmission, a transmission fluid change is needed after your car has clocked significant mileage – this is typically around 100,000km, with some car manufacturers recommending a shorter, and some a longer distance travelled.
The auto transmission fluid is usually red in colour, and darkens with deterioration. There may also be dirt and debris in the fluid. This deterioration will speed up from frequent start and stops typical in our city driving conditions, or from carrying of heavy load. This is because there is more heat generated when driving under such conditions, and the auto transmission fluid cools the auto transmission parts in the process and hence is under more strain.
If we determine that the auto transmission fluid has deteriorated to a quality that would not be suitable for continued use, we would then carry out the auto transmission fluid change for you. At the same time, if your car make and model comes with such filters, we would also clean these for you or replace them.
Auto transmission fluid flush
Depending on the extent of deterioration of your auto transmission fluid, you may sometimes just need a auto transmission flush.
With the flush being carried out, it will help to clean off the dirt and other contaminants, to allow for a better flow of the auto transmission fluid to lubricate and cool the auto transmission components. This will allow the auto transmission parts to then operate more smoothly. As not all car makes recommend doing a auto transmission flush, we would need to understand which is your car make and model before recommending this.
Auto transmission fluid top-up
It could some times be that the problems with the auto transmission is that the auto transmission fluid level has fallen below the adequate level, and hence could not adequately serve its functions, rather than requiring a full auto transmission fluid change. If after checking, our mechanics found that this is the case, we would carry out an auto transmission fluid top up for you. We would also carry out a check to see if there are any leaks that need repairing.

After my free servicing period for my car, I thought it was time to look out for better priced alternatives. I gave ECV Car Service Singapore a call and tried out their service. It was a hassle free experience and good value. - Kenneth Chin, Buona Vista
I had a tire leak caused by a puncture after driving over some construction debris. ECV Car Service Singapore could fix this up for me so I don't need to spend on a new tire. Friendly workshop! - Mr K.T. Liew, Redhill
My car aircon was not functioning and I was not sure what the cause was. I initially brought my car to the dealer workshop and was told the compressor is down. But the price quoted for the compressor replacement was so high. I then gave ECV Car Service Singapore a call, and the price turned out to be much lower, and quality of service good. Thumbs up! - Joel Tan, Bukit Batok
