a full flush and service seems to cost around $200.00 to $300.00, so that price seems fair when you add the solenoid in.

I picked up a second hand (risky) one for $250.00, new front seal and extension housing seal, fitted it in and she runs like a dream - best buy ever! I change the filter and top up the oi annually.

well that seems like a good price then i dont want a second hand one to risky could be just as bad and im to lazy to fit it .they did say not to leave it to long because the computer will pick up on the fault and lock it in 3rd gear .they said the sollinoid is costly .

Just throw an EA 3 speed in - bolt in replacement. Cheap as chips too - $150. Thats all I did on the EB. You just need to weld a small mod to the throttle lever to actuate the kickdown cable.

:P

I will have an excellent condition EL auto up for sale soon. Has done 140,000km.

And it will be alot less that repairing and flushing your auto. Considering one of the bands will probably break if you are near the 250,000km mark as well.

How difficult would the 4 speed autos be to repair for the DIY'er compared to the 3 speeds? Since they're all controlled by solenoids, wouldn't there be a lot less valve body components to stuff up etc?

The soleonoids that drive these boxes are pretty much the same.

But the boxes copped a fairly major revision for the EF/EL models to make them stronger internally. Then further again in the AU.

for curiosity sakes is the AU standard 6 boxes an easy swap to the EF/EL series or did they change the housing/mounts

cheers
