EDT Transmission Service

Treat your automatic transmission to a deep clean!

EDT Automotive is complementing its fuel-saving and emissions-reducing engine decontamination equipment with a machine specifically designed for automatic transmission vehicles.
Building on the same award-winning principle as the EDT Engine Cleaner, the newly launched auto transmission machine removes accumulated contaminants that build up over time. The machine undertakes auto transmission fluid exchanges, removing old fluid, flushing the auto box through with a bespoke cleaner and conditioner and then replenishing it with new fluid – all automatically.
The machine also has a similarly dramatic impact on vehicles as the EDT Engine Cleaner: auto gear changes are far smoother, power delivery is improved and there are significant fuel-saving benefits.
With such technology presenting garages with an opportunity to take advantage of an as-yet untapped market, EDT Automotive believe that this unique service will be an easy sell to customers, with the long-term benefits to a vehicle’s health far outweighing the initial outlay for a treatm ent.
“Some transmissions are £7-8,000: replacing a damaged one can cost more than an engine. There’s no cheap way of fixing them”, said David Holmes, Managing Director at EDT Automotive.
“With a standard automatic transmission fluid change, you’d be
lucky if you get 60 per cent of the oil changed, so you’re always working on 40 per cent contaminated oil. With what we’re bring to the market, the minimum it’s going to change is 90 per cent.

Electric Cars the facts that the public don't know

Cobalt supplies
However, a recent report suggested that the UK’s electric cars will need twice the world’s supply of cobalt.

UK demand for EV batteries will require almost the total amount of neodymium produced globally each year, three quarter’s of the world’s lithium, and “at least half” of the world’s copper.

Materials necessary to replace the two billion cars in the world would require four times the UK’s total annual electrical output.

But why does need a team of scientists to raise the red flag?

In 2013 it was reported that the UK very nearly suffered a national black-out, with just a four per cent reserve of electricity, and the National Grid urged businesses to limit their electricity needs.

Enappsys, which monitors wholesale electricity market data, suggest that the grid had an even more difficult job keeping the lights on last year, when it took new emergency measures to increase supplies with electricity sourced from abroad.

So, my first question is where does the future EV electricity supply come from?

And, what we do with the end of life batteries?

The European Union and China has already introduced regulations which make vehicle manufacturers responsible for recycling batteries.

There is still a question, however, over whether or not manufacturers will use recycled materials due to liability fears.

Many tyre manufacturers, for example, are still reluctant to use recycled rubber.

So, what do we do with these discarded batteries?

For me, these two questions need to be answered before I wholeheartedly embrace EVs as the long term future of cars.

I think instead of totalling relying on electric which the UK couldn’t sustain, they should concentrate on improving self charging hybrids. O% emissions and no drain on the National Grid. Best of both worlds and achievable.

Electric was OK for milk carts, the emissions from petrol vehicles seems to be falling with stop start helping.
