I don't understand this web answser. How do I know whether to accept when I can't read the answer.

Just cancel my $9, and I'll phoe a dealer.

 

I suggest you organize the web so that non-tech folks like me can understand how to use it.

 

You have my address., For 9 bucks can't someone simply email ot me a figure ie mileage.

 

Thanks for the confusion. Credit my card, please.

It is rather simple. The manufacturer recommends that the trans fluid be changed at one hundred thousand miles with normal service. Under severe service, (ie. taxi, police) they recommend it at fifty thousand miles. I..personally would do mine at thirty thousand miles. Thanks
