Re: Just a quick question!
1.How do i change the transmission oil?
2.Is it worth getting a efi service and turn?
Yep, that's usually covered in a major service
3.How often do you get that done?
I tend to have a major service every 20,000kms, with a minor service (oil/filters change & tune up) every 10,000kms in between.
4.wot does it include?
See part 6.
5.Do you only get it done if your car is running poorly?
If it is done regularly, your car won't run poorly and will always be in optimum condition. My service intervals sound a bit lengthy, but I do a lot of easy highway kms so that's why they're 10,000km apart.
6.Also how much do you think the above would cos at the machanics, including efi tune?
Major service (oil, filters, efi tune, plugs & leads) about $150, flushing out the radiator about $60, tranny service about $130. Tranny & radiator should be done either annually or bi-annually depending on what driving conditions the car experiences. Since mine is usually on highways or open country roads, I get my tranny & radiator serviced/flushed bi-annually.
