If anybody has access, link, or way of getting the shop manual for changing the transmission fluid, that would be awesome! I just hit 3000 miles and I would like to get the break-in crap out and fresh fluid in.
My idea would be to measure out 1.7 Litres and call it good as there will be some line loss if you are using a pump or if using a funnel and line from the top be closer to 1.67.. I don't think that .03 of a liters will be a deal breaker..
I have not been able to find WSD and infact ordered the fluid from for using my vin to make sure the parts was right they shipped the WSD fluid so it is going in and if I have a different feel I may try Royal Purple Syncromax as it is the only other oil i can find that says it is up to the task.. at least here in the States
while it *is* stupid, it's really not hard to drain the old fluid into a large pyrex, measure it, and pour the same amount back in. That's what i did. Considering that its "lifetime fluid" (yeah right...) at least the maintenance interval isn't often enough to make it a real pain.
So on a windy backroad drive my trans started whining really bad in every gear today.
Is it possible a fluid change will help or is the trans toast?
It should be under (extended) warranty anyway so it's not a big deal, I just don't want to pay the $100 service fee for them to tell me I should change the fluid.
I have a 2014 ST and am not due for my transmission fluid and filter change for another 4,000 miles @ 100,000. Dealer reckons about $260 for this service. Still under warranty until 125,000, so I'm happy!
