    Helpful tip:

    Race ramps work great for lifting a car from all four wheels and I feel a lot safer. Drive up the front ramps, jack rear up and slide a second set under. Feels way more solid that jack stands imo

  4. Numinous says:

    Great vid, as always. Just one observation: some cars’ ABS system circuits mean using a different bleeding sequence is best. For instance, on my 2010 Mazdaspeed 3 the correct order is passenger rear, driver front, driver rear, passenger front. You can’t go too wrong with farthest to closest if you don’t know, but just a mention of it to those who are unaware.

    I just recently changed my transmission fluid just to find out it was the original trans. Fluid from the factory and the car is 35 years old.

    • Nezar L says:

      @mathew b
      That’s why I asked my question
      Im very curious to know about the out come since I have 130k on my original ATF and a ZF transmission i heard they are very sensitive

    • Alex Strömberg says:

      @mathew b only if it’s a auto

    • Axel Martinez says:

      The thing is it takes dexron II which doesn’t exist any more and it’s a red color, what came out was a very slight darker red so it was still good over 35 years. It takes 11.30 quarts.

    • Erica Campbell says:

      Thought about changing trans fluid on my Escalade with the 4L65E but not sure if it’s ever been changed or ok to do so. It’s got 117k

    • Masterown35 says:

      @Axel Martinez That’s pretty surprising that it wasn’t burnt. I’m assuming the car doesn’t have that many miles on it? Either way I would have been extremely afraid to even touch it being that old lol
