HOW OFTEN THE TRANS PAN GASKET NEED TO BE CHANGED? EVERY YEAR, EVERY MONTH OR SIX MONTH. AND HOW OFTEN THE STANDARD BATTERY WILL LIVE? HOW OFTEN WE NEED NEED THE OIL CHANGE? WAHT IS THE LEFT DRIVE AXLE BOOT, WAHT HAPPENS IF IT GETS TORN AND DRY, DO WE NEED IT AS AN EMERGENCY SITUATION?

Change trans fluid and filter every 2 years/20,000 miles.

Most batteries will last 4-5 years.

Change oil every 3-5000 miles.

CV axles have boots (filled with grease) to protect CV bearings, if boot is cut/ripped, grease will leak out and axle will start clicking especially in turns.
If not repaired it CAN sieze, but CV joint will first click, then noise will get worse as water gets into CV bearings and ruins them.
