I totally forgot to mention the dealership said I need to change my ATF since it was burnt. They wanted $170 to do it so I told them to go kick rocks.
Should I go to a shop and get a full flush or should I just drain it and refill? If I so that what kind of ATF should I use? I've been reading and there seems to be 101 different opinions on this. According to my manual it says to use:
Castrol Transmax J
Or if your vehicle has a 4 speed auto you can use Dexron III in addition to the recomended fluid types
After researching the Idemitsu is super expensive unless you order online, the Catrol and Pennzoil you can never find in stores, and to never use Dexron. What do you all think?
