Default Transmission Fluid Change

Anyone know of a DIY for changing the atf in and automatic transmission? I going to do it on a 1998 Audi A4 2.8 Quattro.

Thanks.

JUST A HINT...BUY A COUPLE MORE QUARTS THAN YOU THINK YOU NEED

any suggestions on doing it without a vag-com or any diagnostic system? the blau site says to check for dripping at certain temps after you fill. is that really necessary

BUMP! I dont have the 350$ vag and i need to do a tranny flush. Should i just run it hot to get as much out as possible to drain. Then let it cool and fill it until it comes out, then runt he gears, fill, run the gears, fill again? HELP!

you can use vcds lite and a $10 amazon cable. i got mine running. going to be doing this same thing this week depending on the weather. be careful filling it! its not a normal fill plug

Ive heard the whole drain/flush/fill is not reccomended. I forget why but I do recall hearing bad stories. I think your best off with a drain/fill.

You also need special tools for the plugs.

I believe it's some absurdly large 12-point safety bit. ECS should have them. I need to drain/flush/fill my gear oil as well..
