Automatic Transmissions Fluid Flush Service
The best way to avoid costly transmission-related problems is to maintain the fluid. While not required as often as the engine oil change, proper transmission fluid flush services are an easy way to optimize performance and service life. More than 90% of all transmission failures are linked to overheating or fluid contamination. A typical ‘drain & refill’ transmission service may only replace 40% of the old fluid, while leaving behind sludge and varnish. These deposits can lead to shifting problems and transmission failure. At Archer’s, we use contemporary equipment to flush out the entire transmission system. This process not only removes 95% of the old fluid and deposits, it conditions and extends the life of the new fluid. We recommend that you have your vehicle’s ATF checked for servicing about every 60,000 miles.
CV Joint and Boot Service
A CV axle is made up of 2 CV joints. The axle transmits torque from the engine and transmission to drive the vehicle’s wheels.
Constant velocity joints, or CV joints are universal joints that are able to transfer torque at large angles efficiently. These CV joints transfer power very smoothly. They are comprised of four basic parts:
– The outer section, which has grooves machined on its inner surface
– The bearings, which are usually in a “cage”
– The inner ball, which has grooves on its outer surface for the bearings to ride in
– A rubber boot to protect the unit from dirt and moisture
A common cause of CV joint failure is cracks in the CV boot. When the boot is cracked, it allows dirt and grit to mix with the grease and wear down the parts of the joint. A clicking noise heard when turning is the most common symptom of CV joint problems. The CV boots should be replaced as soon as cracking is visible in their rubber folds.
