Auto transmition..

Postby alex.lai » Fri Dec 22, 2017 10:43 am

Hi everyone. Can't find an open topic on this..

I recently got a 2005 4.6v8 auto. Works absolubly fine in d but when I go through the gears 1,2&3 on over run there is a whine coming from the transmition. It's only done 33k and I highly doubt the fluids have ever been done for the auto box. My questions are what fluid goes in the the box, how much fluid and is there a filter to replace?

Thanks everyone!!

A lot of auto boxes are meant to be sealed for life but thats to make the servicing costs look better :o

Well worth changing fluid and filters if they are fitted. I have owned a few autos over the yeaes and always change the fluid on a regular basis. Often noticing a difference in the gearchanges etc.
Only thing to make sure is if there are filters, gaskets and getting the correct oil as there are a few different types.

They are sealed for life, I enquired at a dealership in the US and the response was 150,000 mile overhaul intervals!

I have a 2005 auto and the fluid has to be changed every 30 000 miles (it's in the user manual) , and also the filter inside the pan .

The only thing is that you fill it by the drain plug and the level is checked engine on .
