I guessed as much. If not the same why state the same thing - SP3. Although technically the fluids need not be the same. They only need to meet the SP3 standards. One fluid might still be better than the other, in a sense.

my altis is 110km mileage now.

never change ATF before. Understand that Toyota do not change ATF. its also not scheduled in Borneo motor servicing.

Any opinions?

110K or 110?

If its the former, your gearbox is super strong!

As discussed for Mazda's AD too.

Conclusion, go buy it and do it outside if warranty is over.

I used to think that ATF lasts a lifetime, as the label says so as well.

Then I wondered, if there's a mileage definition for "lifetime". Since COE lasts for 10 years, I decided on this definition for "lifetime" and I went for an ATF change, then adopted a routine of ATF change every 30kkm.

Not bad I would say, gear changes are more responsive after the change. Perhaps I just want to prolong the transmission lifespan and not wanting it to fail as the mileage climbs. You know how much does a transmission replacement cost at BM? ;)

... I'd rather change ATF than to replace transmission.

I have been changing ATF fluid every 20k for all my auto cars. So far so good. Only changed auto gearbox once on my 2nd hand bought car with no service history.

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.

same here, changed my swift atf at around 25k mark. will change it again when it hits 60k just to keep it fresh and going.

atf aint expensive anyway and labour in malaysia is affordable.

Yea rather pay for preventive than corrective maintenance. Btw does your ride have ATF filter? I came across but not sure what's the change interval.

All rides should have a ATF. Just like EO filter. Haven come across or knew any rides with it:s12::s12:

You been to BM JB?

Not me personally but I have friends/colleagues who have been to Proton/Perodua/Hyundai/Honda JB's Authorised Dealer. You can check from their website how much is the servicing for respective models. Cheers.
