    Transmission fluid change

    Another question about my 03 PONTIAC MONTANA, wife took it for an oil change last week, but the shop suggested a transmission fluid change be done soon. They also said that we better take it to them because if I try to do it myself I will only get 4 of the 12L of fluid out of it and it is pointless?.....is this true? do I really need to pay around 200 bones for a tranny fluid change or can I do it myself?

    Thx.

    Yeah they flush the converter & cooler at the shop. If you do it yourself you only get the fluid thats sitting in the pan.

    We do it at our shop, $175. But we flush the system, then drop the pan too and change your filter. Most "flush" jobs are only the flush - no filter change.

    Shop around. PM me if you want more info.
