    Please Link Trans/Diff Flush Instructions

    Sorry guys, I just can't seem to find any guidelines on here about diff/trans (6MT) flush instructions. I know they exist here, I just apparently can not use a search button properly...

    Much appreciated.

    Trying to get all fluids changed before AutoX.

    For Transmission, there is an 8mm drain plug and fill plug.
    Unplug, drain, and use a fluid pump to pump back in the fluid till it overflows beyond the fill plug.
    Make sure to have the car leveled to ensure proper draining and filling.

    Similar for Diff, except it is a 14mm drain and fill plug.

    I just did my transmission fluid on Friday.

    Remove the fill plug first! That allows you to make sure that it can be removed. Last thing you want is to drain all the fluid and then realize that the fill plug is stuck and you have no way to fill your car back up with fluid!

    You need about 1.8 quarts for transmission fill. And 1.2 for diff. So yes get two bottles of each
