TRANSMISSION FLUID
« on: January 09, 2018, 03:49:33 pm »
Hi everybody! I'm just about to change the transmission fluid on my 2003 Mazda 6 2.0 petrol automatic. The car is 14 yo. and done 33000 mile over all and its never been changed.
First of all I would like to know what kind of fluid I should buy?
And how about the filter, it's need to be replace it?
Thx, Joe!

You will be safer referring to the manual but if you visit lubricant companies websites, you will get recommendations. For example:

You should change the filter as well and that means that you will need the o-ring and the grease sealant. Maybe you will also need thread sealer as well plus the figures of torque. Something like that:
