A standard service only changes about 4-5ltrs. Theres about 11ltrs in the Transmission including the torque convertor, the rest doesn't normally get changed, most places don't normally change all the fuild unless the box is being removed. This pushes the costs up significantly. Normal service is around $110 including filter. Oil is Castrol TQ95 or equivilent.

to do a proper flush you will need about 20L of fluid.

when you get the 20L drum of fluid also get a drum pump to go with.

step one do the normal pan change and fill = 4L of fluid.


then undo the cooler lines from the rad and attach clear hose of about 1M lenght. to the metal lines with clamps.

run the car to find out wich pipe is the return line put the other end of the clear hose from that line onto the drum pump. and run the other hose into a empty container of at least 20L

get your friend to sit in your car and start it and move the shifter through the gears, while he is doing this you need to pump new fluid in at the same rate the old is coming out. continue until the fluid comming out is clean.

hook up all the lines again.

if thats every 20000k ,which u would do in about 1 month ,then u r going to be getting alot of services in 1 year,so he is going to give u mates rates.

whereas im only doing around 20000k in a year so he wil only see my car once a year so he has to make a bit of a profit from someone.

u thoght 130 was dear, well i was quoted 189 at ATS for the same thing so i think i got off lightly

cheers
