Post MY00 AT Transmission ?

I got my tranny fluid changed yesterday at Jiffy. Ya I know, stupid, but I don't like ignoring fluid changes. They put in 3.5 quarts but the manual says the tranny takes 9+ quarts, and the dip stick says full. Why the difference? Torque converter maybe. And what if I choose to go synthetic, how does one go about removing all of the fluid?

The trans does indeed take 9+ quarts, as 2/3 of it cannot be gravity drained or even siphoned. The only way to get it all is to use a machine that connects to the cooling lines and flush fluid throughout. This requires one full 9+ quart flush plus another one with brand new fluid.

With Synthetic it can be expensive but should be doable.

Thanx for your response. I'm wondering if this "partial fluid change" is good enough? I suppose the only proper way to change the fluid is to take it to the dealer and have them pump the entire 9+ quarts.

Well since the manual probably recommends changing it every 39k miles, a partial drain is probably all they do.

I would call and ask them about what they normally do and if they offer a full flush.

Otherwise, you're at least replacing some of the fluid and getting the heavy stuff out so it did do some good.
