Let's Talk Transmissions

Did you know the level and quality of transmission fluid can reveal hidden transmission problems?

Low Fluid Levels may show a possible leak. Brownies Independent Transmission 30-Point Inspection can pinpoint any small leak now to prevent a big problem later.

Color and Condition may show a possible problem. Things to look for:


Translucent, reddish brown fluid with no unusual odor


Water or particles in fluid

Burnt Fluid:

Possible damage from overheating

Varnished Fluid:
