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.

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

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..
