Any input on this? I have room in the garage, but it's not necessarily the most friendly place to do "fluid-based" DIY's.<p>What have you guys paid at indy mechanics for this?

Re: ATF change ..... DIY or not? (CoconutPete)

Its not a difficult procedure. Heck, I did it! Jiffy Lube charges soimewhere around $240 for a flush & refill.<p> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/cool.gif" BORDER="0">

Pete, I've done both my wagons in 40 minutes, it takes longer to set up the containers to collect the discharged fluid ...that's 20 minutes per car...with the help of my 9 year old son!!! DIY JHW <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

Flushing is easy enough. Dispensing the used fluid legally takes more work, since most collection points don't take tranny fluid (knowingly).

Thanks guys. I cant access the Matthews volvo site from work, will check it out later.<p>My buddy has a shop, it might just be easier to head over there and take care of it since he has a drain bucket and a big fluid container out back. I'll just have to wait a few weeks.
