Question type: Maintenance & Repair

2 Answers

only when they get a lot of mileage or heavy loads or if they are driven "hard". my 97 had 337kms on it when I traded it, original tranny/engine

155

im not complaining , my safari is rounding about 430,000 miles and has a slight slip, but i just throw some Lucas transmission fliud in it and it's fine. it's a thick blend but works amazing, just don't overfill.
