Hello again,

AAAhhh, Okay here you go. Could you do me a favor and look in your manual and see what type of transaxle is in your vehicle. It looks like there are six different options for your vehicle. It should start with GT and then 2 numbers.

Thanks,
Alex

Hello again,

The vehicle specifications, or the transaxle chapter. I'm thinking it should be up by the front somewhere. You might be able to call the dealership and ask them. They should be able to tell from your vehicle's VIN#. I just want to make sure that I am getting you the correct information for your vehicle, that's why I need the information. There are 3 different transmission/transaxle possibilities for your vehicle.

Thanks,
Alex

Hello again,

Yes, that's what a service is. It's like an oil change for your engine. Although they have no information on changing the filter. Usually Automatic transmissions/trans-axles have a filter in them as well. Maybe your vehicle has a lifetime filter in it.

Alex

Okay, I changed fluid. What scan tool do I need to find transmission temperature to know if I overfilled or under filled? Thanks.

Hello again,

Go for two separate drives for me. Is your vehicle's Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL) or "check engine" light illuminated?
