Good thing u did this i was putting mine off and was going to do this myself thanks this sure will make mine easy this weekend.
FYI dealer will replace your tranny oil at 30k miles and the next will be at 100k im changing mine now
Sean, you mentioned 2.2L. Is that the volume with or without draining the cooler?
If we can determine the difference in fill volume between this method and when the dealer does it, that would be nice. I was told by the dealer that it's not trivial but that may not be true obviously.
