  • Automatic Transmission flush/Brake Fluid flush

    At my last service (202500km) the mechanic recommended at the 210000km service I also get an Auto Transmission flush and a Brake fluid flush. Can any forum members advise what these flushes would achieve/are they required or is the mechanic just adding an extra cost onto the service bill.

    And yes before anyone comments, I have done a search of the forum and cannot find any info on these flushes.

    I have a 2003 NP diesel auto that is serviced as per logbook (auto oil to be changed at 210k).

    All info appreciated

    I have the same veh & yes it is VERY important.

    The brake fluid absorbs moisture over time & thereby can rust out the cylinders (it is not an oil but a fluid that becomes corrosive)

    The Trans fluid absorbs moisture, &, more critically, builds up particles of metal & fibre from the internals. With recommended changes (importantly with the correct specified oil) these Transmissions last a long time.

      Hi, I would also recommend the changing of both fluids, with the trans though, I only use genuine oil, also, don't get conned into using an additive with the trans flush.

        Don't use auto trans flush, it's out there but it's not needed.
        The drain, fill, flush and topup method is a tried and true method that works. Around 20ltrs is what most people have been going through for a good flush.

          this should have been done at the 200K service . yes a full flush out / change of both fluid types is needed.
