As you can see in the video this job did not come without it’s difficulties. If I were to do it again I would have just changed the fluid and left the filter alone and things would have gone a lot smoother I think. I’m going to wait and see what happens with the MaxLife trans fluid, so far I haven’t heard anything about any problems with it and it’s been a couple of months since I shot this video. So if you need to perform this service the service interval is unclear but I would consider it around 60K and at that time I would just do the fluid and leave the filter alone.
