While getting my oil change from a local garage, it was recommended
that I get the transmission oil changed as well at 59700 miles.
$20 oil change
$20 oil/ shop parts
$90 transmission oil filter ('from the Acura dealer")
I suspect over charge here. Can someone tell me if the transmission
oil/filter change is reasonable?
I called Jiffy lube and transmission flush was only $81. (w/o filter
I don't know if there is a transmission oil filter.
I will find out tomorrow if the tranny oil was flushed or drained.
I have a 2000 3.2TL and had the transmission fluid changed about a
year ago (12/07/04) at my Acura dealer.
I'm not sure if the transmissions are the same, but they are probably
very similar. And, there is no transmission filter in mine. I looked
in the factory service manual and asked at the dealer.
16.65 for 3 quarts ATF fluid
2.40 for a drain washer
45.45 Total Parts & Labor
BTW: I also get my engine oil changes there, for 27.73 plus local
sales tax. That includes an Acura oil filter, 4.5 quarts of Castrol
Syntec oil, and all the misc. charges.
I'd say you were either overcharged, or there was more done than you
are aware of.
