  3. ATF shelf life

    Do-It-Yourself / Mods
    I'm getting ready to do a drain/fill on my 2012. In the process, I found an unopened quart of DW1 from when I serviced my prior 2001 years ago. That quart, left on the shelf in the garage, is probably 5 to 6 years old. Is it ok to use?

  13. Looking at reciept, shop flush and filled trans with ATF-Z1, not DW1

    2007-2011 Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen 3)
    Hi all, I was looking at recpeipts just recently and saw that AFT-Z1 was put back in on the the parts list. I was under the impression that ATF-Z1 was superceded by ATF-DW1, right? So why would they put Z1 back in? Should I call and ask them what's up with that? What are you thoughts and how...
  14. ATF Drain and Fill - Big time screw up

  17. ATF fluid drain and fill question - am I a boob?

    Maintenance and Service
    Hi guys: To save $90, I drained and refilled the trans fluid, and now feel like a complete idiot. Everything I have read says that the capacity is about 3 quarts for a drain and fill (slightly less). I have added about 3.5, but cannot get a reading on the dipstick unless the vehicle is cold...
