Did I do it wrong??


Recommended Posts

Hey crew, replacing all the fluids in a new to me malibu. 2002 wakesetter LSV with the Hammerhead. So I used the Pella extractor on the v drive oil and the transmission fluid both through the dipstick holes. I only removed about 1 quart from both, checked the dipsticks and they both read empty. Refilled to the operating range. But I'm wondering if I did something wrong? Seems to me like there would be more transmission fluid but I'm not a mechanic ha. Any thoughts?

You should first check to make sure your fluids are within operating range, then extract, and replace the same amount. I can never get the full 2 quarts out of my tranny but it always looks new so I'm not worried about it.

You should download your manuals here
