Transmission fluid change Sign In

Hi
my car is chevy cruze 2011,
as you know i can't check the Transmission fluid so i visit maintenance center to check it, they said is need to change (yes i saw it, it was dark fluid), however they change it by drain the fluid then they refill it with 4.5L of new Derxon IV fluid, but they said i should drive the car for around 1000 km and re-change the fluid.

My questions, first is true just 4.5L used to fill it. And its true need re-change after 1000 km? plz tell me


thank you

No, by doing it that way they are only draining a portion of the fluid because a large amount remains in the converter. that's the reason they want to do it twice. That would dilute the old fluid more doing it the second time.

Also note, this car calls for Dexron VI, not Dexron IV. The maintenance schedule for this vehicle does not call for ever changing the fluid. It probably wouldn't hurt but you make no mention of the mileage on the car and the vehicle isn't that old.

Changing it a second time is not a bad idea to get more fluid changed.
