Services Performed
  • Road test and verify transmission operation. Flush transmission which includes: flushing of transmission cooler, cooler lines, valve body, and torque converter. Flush all contaminated fluid out and replace with new trans oil. Helps prolong transmission life by removing old contaminated fluid from the transmission and torque converter. In the past, the fluid would be replaced only when the customer detected a change in how the transmission shifts. But, modern transmissions can mask worn fluid by changing shift points and line pressures. However, even the most sophiscated computer algorithm can mask worn out fluid for so long. Eventually, the original fluid's viscosity changes and depleted friction modifiers can damage the clutches and bands. This can destroy a transmission.

  • CHECK VALVE COVER GASKET, Nissan Dealer told the customer it was leaking oil, IT IS BONE DRY, THERE IS NO LEAK OF ANY KIND.
