If your mileage is 110k km, time to change atf fluid but do not flush, might have problems later. If you want AD standard to do this, I recommend you to go to BM JB. They'll be more than happy to service SG plate car.
Went jb for ATF change.

workshop changed T-iv instead of WS for my Altis.

Im so pissed. They say it is okay and ask me to return to change back to WS if im worried.

Now my gearbox is diluted with T-iv (up to 50%). Read through forums and conclusion is both are not compatible and should not be mixed.

I think i will change back to WS, next servicing (5000km) drain and top up WS again. what u guys think?

Lian seng service center near ksl.
Boss say is ok.
I spoke to their technician he think is ok too.

I even have to spend money to top up the cost of Toyota WS.
Now I run the risk of damaging gear box. Super pissed.
Please be cautious of this shop. Their prices of their spare parts are marked up too.

U did the right thing. Quickly get a good workshop to flush it all out. Those lao cheow mechs will know what to do when u tell them the tranny is filled with wrong fluid. Very very troublesome process, but no choice. Then after a few rounds of filling n draining, they will change tranny filter with new gasket n proper atf ws fluid.

Don't mess with the tranny. Always stick to the recommended wtf oil. Toyota atf ws isn't expensive. Rather u spend 50$ than a few thousand to rebuild the tranny. Not to mention a few weeks down time.

My friend kena once. After less than 2 weeks, the tranny died. He scraped his ride.

NEVER NEVER patronize any workshops along that stretch of road just outside KSL.

Go out of this so call "Singapore Town" if you dont want to be ripped off...

Hmm. Very bad. It may be “ok” but certainly not ideal. I mean there’s a reason why Toyota has different type of ATF fluids right?

Yup. Engine oil can arguably use different types or brands, but transmissions are sensitive.

U did the right thing. Quickly get a good workshop to flush it all out. Those lao cheow mechs will know what to do when u tell them the tranny is filled with wrong fluid. Very very troublesome process, but no choice. Then after a few rounds of filling n draining, they will change tranny filter with new gasket n proper atf ws fluid.

Went CarClick yesterday, only Jospeh around as ah yuan on holiday. Went there for balancing of front 2 Tryes and changed air filter to KNN Filter

10RM only, Joseph also help to topup my coolant.

Seems like CarClick likes to do overhaul jobs for cars.
See many completed overhaul cars park outside his ws nicely.

Spoke to Joseph he say got sg cars also do overhaul works.
Left their car for one week at CarClick before collection.

Left the ws in 30mins as got 2 more JB car came for ah hoc works.

Good for you....

I was unlucky becos they can even install air con filter wrongly in my bolehland ride... That shop also happened to be the same name which you used before.

Btw, other shops outside this "chop-carrot" zone also can do certain illegal stuffs also lah....
