A transmission flush is usually twice the price of a fluid change due to the amount of time the service takes and the fact that the flush not only replaces the fluid in the pan but also removes fluid from the cooler lines and other parts of your transmission.

Automatic and manual transmission will typically require added fluids. Automatic transmission fluids are commonly thinner and are typically red or green in color. Manual transmission fluid or gear oil is thicker due to additives and substitute compounds central to lubricate the gearbox and substitute components. Manual transmissions have a higher friction environment due to the way gears are changed, thus the lubricant is added.

Not only are the fluids exact between manual and automatic transmissions but the level of heat the fluids experience is incredibly exact. Automatic transmissions generate a lot more heat and thus the fluid in your transmission must be changed more frequently. If you don't change your Lexus GX 460 transmission fluid, your transmission will have broken metal shavings and extra corrosive material spread throughout the basic components of your Lexus GX 460. You should frequently check the fluid levels between your fluid and transmission flush service intervals. In many cases, manual transmissions don't come equipped with a dipstick to check your fluid levels, so it can be exceptionally difficult to do. Call or visit Plaza Lexus for more information if your transmission doesn't contain a dipstick.
