Have Transmission Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello, Welcome to Just Answer.
Yes I think it would be a good idea to change the transmission fluid and the filter on the inside of the transmission. The filter tend to become clogged from a sticky substance that the fluid forms and all the iron filings. This then leads to a lower oil pressure that causes the hard shifting of the gears.
To do this is not very complicated to do and one do not need very special tools either. There is a site on the net that has photos on how to do this.
They give a really well laid out description and photos
i hope you find this information helpful should you need more please do not hesitate to ask.
The transmission number & id is inside the the spare wheel holder in the boot. I am sure you should find someone else with a better price than that. The job will not take you more than 2-3 hours, I cannot understand why they charge you so much as the time they will take will be less than what I estimate you should take to do the job. They have all the proper air/electrical tools.
I found this video of a oil change only and it should give you a idea of what we are talking about
No your vin number cannot id the transmission as some cars will have different types of transmissions.
The trunk as you guys call it, where the spare tire sit on the side there is a sticker with the number and description
The sticker might be removed as it should be there. The drivers hand book will show you what the sticker looks like and where it should be, check in the technical data book.
Yes that is what we are looking for. If you give them that information they will know what transmission it is.
NTP HRM 1K27N3 is the transmission code.
Thank you for getting back to me. If there more I can assist you with just let me know.
