    ATF fluid question for X18Xe engine

    Hi, can anyone help me?

    I am about to change my A/T fluid for this engine and I am wondering how many liters of fluid do I need to buy?

    The car did 55,000kms already and I am thinking maybe its time to change the fluid..

    Thanks

    Dexron 3 is the correct fluid specification. Older Vx autoboxes may have used Dexron 2 originally but it's ok to replace, or top-up with 3.

    The 4 litres is only after a complete strip down. If you're just draining and re-filling, the fluid in the torque converter won't drain so you'll only need 2-3 litres to refill.

    Just drain, add 2 litres and then check level, adding 0.25 litres after that until the level is correct. Don't overfill!

    Can I just buy an over-the-counter high quality ATF Dexron 3 fluid ?? Or it might be bad since it might mix with the original ATF fluid brand??

    Thanks..

    I don't worry about brand - as long as it's Dexron 3.

    Thanks. I am now confident that I am doing the right thing. I get so paranoid reading stories about broken A/T due to dirty fluid..
