I have been following the VW maintenance schedule carefully, I’d like this car to last to 150k at least. But reading this forum, I realize I should have changed the fluid in the transmission, even though VW says it’s not needed.
But that is in the past, what should I do now? One option is do nothing and hope the tranny holds out. Another is to drain and refill with fluid now. But could this not disturb things enough so the tranny will die?
And if I should drain and refill, I know there are 2 different ways to do this. Does it matter which?
