im about to have 55k on her was just looking for some input and/or suggestions
Get some prices from a independent trans shop.....that's crazy money.What would be a reasonable price for the auto fluid change? My dealer is telling me the tranny flush is about $190 or the filter/fluid change is $169. Wow. Didn't know it was so high. 2012 Eco with 73k miles.
Was there a specific reason you changed your A/T fluid at the 15,000 mile mark and distrust the factory fluid?I just got mine done. Paid 150 for 9 quarts after taxes and crap for redline oil, and then 100 at a lube shop for them to use their machine. I can say I'm a little surprised at the colour for being at 25,000 km/15,000 mile mark on a 2015 1.4L turbo. However a few people here have said that cranberry juice would do better than the stuff you get from the factory. I'm getting a trans gauge soon, see how hot she runs, and if too hot, I'm going to swap out the in rad cooler with another air cooler.
I was just digging through the forum, bored after i got the app to read the forum, and somewhere I found a bunch of users who had done the change at 15,000 miles with the factory fluid and said it was dark like mine was with no picture evidence, as well as smoother shifts going with amsoil or redline. The stuff that's in there is also supposedly a semi-synthetic, but redline and ams are both full synthetic. However now I can attest to the early trans fluid change from the factory fill, that it is indeed kinda crummy fluid it seems.Was there a specific reason you changed your A/T fluid at the 15,000 mile mark and distrust the factory fluid?
