    Hi
    I know its not difficult to change but there is an option to actually change it using a dialysis type machine whereby all the ATF (even from the crankcase) will actually be replaced as well. Cause if you use the drain type method, not all the ATF actually drops.

    Also, I heard somewhere that its not necessary to change the ATF cause its sealed type and they are meant to last a lifetime. So is there any truth to this??? Thanks for the advice.

    By the way, mine is a Z16XE engine. Wonder if someone can provide a photo or guide on how to drain the ATF. Thanks..
