The shop performing these services should know what fluid your car needs exactly. They can reference it through your VIN#.

What's that jug of tranny fluid cost? I've been considering replacing what I can drain out of the tranny without activating the pump to drain the cooler.

Yea im still debating if i should do it...

I need a DIS TESTER to make the pump run... And since i dont have that i might just have one of the VENDOR here do it...

I can get the fluid for $130 at the dealer and the Vendor is asking $195 fluid and labor i believed i think its the best price here.

Im going to do the brake and diff and let the shop do the tranny....

That is a good deal on the fluid change. Tranny/diff fluid is disgusting.

You can use any high quality brake fluid. If you are tracking, I would. Castrol SRF, ATE Super Blue, ATE Gold, etc...
