Well I took the plunge and decided to change my ZF 5HP24 transmission fluid and all I can say is wow what a difference. I think I had a few small issues before the change. When I dropped the sump it had one hex head bolt in it. Suggesting it's possibly been taken off before. Even stranger I got 4.5 litres of fluid out but managed to get almost 6.5 litres back in. I have a feeling someone filled it without the engine running. The trans is quiet now. Shifts are more logical, it doesn't flare the revs when changing and it just feels like it has much more 'drive' if that makes sence.
I would have thought I would have had no drive with that amount of fluid missing though.
It did turn into an expensive excersise though. Along with the expensive esso lt71141 fluid, I had a front air bag blow out when I was driving the car up the ramps.
