Tranmission Fluid

hi,

im about to do another serive on my EF. so i thought i should check the auto too.

i checked, its full, and brownish colour, should i change it?

how would i go about it, is there a sump plug, or do i remove the pan?

is there a special fluid for it?

Cheers
Greenie

Re: Tranmission Fluid

Gotta drop the pan. Loosen the bolts first, let it drain with the pan on, then come back and remove the pan totally. Messy otherwise.

Dextron 3 will do the trick, forgot how much you need.

Re: Tranmission Fluid

20,000 km's is a good interval to change trans fluid.
I'll confirm that fluid.. DON'T use dextron 3, the TQ 95 is the correct spec.

ok thanks for that.

also i have another problem, thought i would post it here instead of creating a new thread.

i blow a fuse, so i took the one outta the air bag, till i went to the shop to get a new one, the one i blew wouldnt let the car start without it.

i replaced the airbag fuse, now the "airbag" light on the dash still flashes, any ideas?

Re: Tranmission Fluid

dextron 3 spec is for manual trans from memory. i think total capacity is 19-20L of fluid if you suck oil out of the torque converter. removing the pan and draining that will will only drop a few litres (whatevers in the trans sump.)

Re: Tranmission Fluid

oh as for the airbag deal, disconnect battery for a bit and reset the computer and that should do it - it probab has in memory that a fuse has blown and needs to be reset.
