Question about 2005 Mazda MPV
To do a trasmission service, do I need only to change gasket and filter?
Yes, that and the oil of course. Just to be 100% clear on this, i'll explain every step in am automatic transmission service. First, drain the oil from the transmission by removing the drain plug. Second, remove the oil pan from the tranny. Then comes the removal of the filter. Then, replace the filter with the new one. Then clean the oil pan of excess dirt and gasket residue if any, and put the new gasket on the pan. Then you just put the oil pan back on the tranny and top off the oil. For the exact amount of oil needed, call your local dealer, or local garage or parts store. Then just verify the oil level just to be sure everything is OK, and note that most transmissions require the engine to be hot to have the correct level on the oil gauge. It should say if it is needed in your owners manual, or on most oil gauges it says ajust when hot, or hot level and cold level. If in doubt, ask the local dealer, garage or parts store again.
