The time it takes to do an external diagnostic varies. Depending on the make and model of car. Also depending on the customer concern. At Transmission clinics we generally ask that you set aside anywhere from 2 to 4 hours to allow us to complete an external diagnostic procedure.
The goal of the external diagnostic procedure is to determine whether or not the transmission has a serious internal problem or some other less serious external problem. The same applies to manual transmissions and manual clutch systems.
The priority here is to properly diagnose the customer concern/drivability issue.
Although regular transmission maintenance is important. Transmission Clinics does not recommend transmission flushes. Automatic transmissions have an internal filter. This filter over time collects debris. If the fluid is changed without changing the transmission filter, which is what happens with a transmission flush.
This debris is left inside the transmission, and will immediately contaminate the new transmission fluid. If you think it’s time for a transmission fluid and filter change, give us a call and we can discuss it.
