Tiptronic ATF Change

Recommended Posts

I did the spring oil change on my 99 Cab/Tip on the weekend and while I was under there I noticed that the transmission oil pan had a build-up of oil/dirt residue on it. I've never experienced any drips on the garage floor so it was just sweating a bit. While I had the car up on stands I cleaned off the pan and then went around and snugged up the pan bolts to compress the gasket a bit.

Since the car has about 60,000 kilometres on it and I don't know if the trans fuild has ever been changed I thought I'd call the dealer and see how much it might cost to do that. I was figuring maybe $300 max. I just got a call from them and they want $920 for the job. icon501.gif

I've read that the job is fairly long and labour intensive but I just about flipped backwards off my chair when I heard that number.

Can anybody share the hours to do the job and what the parts cost might be (fluid, gasket/filter, etc.).

Thanks in advance for your help.

Cheers, Scottie

Thanks Loren. Much appreciated. My car is a US model that I imported into Canada but I assume they are close in hours and intervals. My concern is really not with the mileage accumulated but the age of the fluid. By my calcs the car will be about 30 years old before I need to change the oil!

Thanks also for the pointer to the tutorial. I've got an order in to Sunset for new rear springs - maybe I'll call them and add the parts needed for a transmission oil change.
