Auto gearbox fluid change ??

Recommended Posts

My December 2003 S - Type has a six speed auto box coupled to the V6 3.0 litre engine. The car currently has 78 k  miles and i have owned her since December 2017, at which point she had 61 k miles. At what mileage should i change the ATF auto fluid in the gearbox? i have heard rumour that it is a "sealed for life" unit, which is concerning - as it surely under goes wear through heat in long term operation. Any advice would be gratefully received. Many thanks, Dominic

Its well over due, ZF recomend 60k or 10 years, at 17 years old well worth doing

did mine a few years ago, recomend using genuine zf parts and oil

you can get kits off ebay which include, new pan(filter), new bolts(larger heads improved), 7 liters of zf lifeguar 6, mechatronics sleeve(prone to leaking)
