Seriously, which workshop uses a proper hoist when it comes to ATF change? Such hoist only found in alignment machine and only available at tyre shop. Secondly, which workshop measures your transmission temperature during ATF change? Don't think our local workshops even have a thermometer for such application. Sigh!
Very true...but the least we could do is to know that this is how it should be carried out. Having said that, our mechanics never swear by the book...it's all about how fast can they get the change done irrespective if it is done correctly.
i know.....sad but true...

When I did my last ATF change job when the car was only 40k km old, I went to a shop that provides alignment service to hopefully can use their alignment hoist to ensure car is level during the ATF change. But was in vain because that hoist, business too good with long list of cars waited for alignment job. End up I had to use their normal hoist which hoist from the side skirt jack points with 4 wheels hanging in the air. I asked them to get a hand pump talk jack like this muffler box support stand, to jack the rear diff up to artificially achieve the "level" position. Many were watching because if rear jack too high, the car may slip and fell head down from the hoist !! while I use a contractor level ruler to measure the ATF pan level under the hoist.. :4:
You actually did that....:top:
I would have gotten a finger i think from the mech if i were to do so LOL!!!

Many forum mentioned RedLine D4 ATF, have anyone tried this for their GM gearbox?

What I'm trying to say D-IV is not a replacement for D-III.
The new E90 LCI or E90 MSport is shipped with GM 6 speed box and is prescribed with Dexron VI. The authorised part shops are selling Petrol Canada Dextron VI for these boxes.
