Title: Changing Transmisson Fluid - automatic
Post by: paulfoel on May 21, 2018, 11:09:17 AM
Is this right that you have to change it twice in effect?

Because 1st time its only possible to get half out then run the car and change again?

Do garages do this (or even know)? Or not bother?

Depends which one.

Powershift:

If the latter, regularity seems to be more important than anything.  Every 37K, or else....
