Auto Trans Oil Ls 05 Late 78K Miles


Recommended Posts

Hi all

I'm now a proud owner of an ls 430 05 plate. Got it off a Lexus dealer. Part of deal was changing the auto fluid but I've noticed on the work sheet (I wasn't meant to get) ghat they only used 3 litres of trans oil and it was 1/2 hour time to action

Is this right?

I went and did the whole lot.

I did that drain and fill.

And then I did just undid the cooler line and the front, emptied 2 litres. Filled 2 litres into the sump. Did this 4-5 times until fluid was nice and red.

No problems and a great way to do it with minimal mess.

You did check the trans level properly right?

Hmmm what garage ?

If they're familiar with BMWs , Mercedes etc then the fill level will be ok, but if they're not, then I am worried they did it all with the engine off and not at the right temperature....

Or they calculated what came out and put the same in which is somewhat ok but doesnt help if it was low to start with. Also what fluid did they use?

Hi it was a Lexus garage that actioned it. Shortly after they done it I had to go back in for something else (tpms light came on)and got them to double check the level
