PTU 2011 SEL 160k

Recommended Posts

So, I have no excuse on why I never did a PTU fluid change. First one I “tried” to do at 159k. Used the auto hobby shop on base, had my siphon and got maybe an ounce out. Put in 2-3 oz, drove it for week or so. At ~159,250, did another drain and fill and this time got out 3-4 oz. Just did my 3rd at about 160k, while we had a 60-70 degree day in MA and got out a significant amount and then was able to put in 2/3 to 3/4ths of a quart. 
 

Feeling better about it but still regret waiting so long. I’ll do one more in the next few months to see if I can get any more out. 

 

Pic  shows how much of a brand new bottle I was able to get in the PTU, the second and third time.

 

Never had an issue with the PTU but after reading how semi-easy it is to change (and some scary YT videos) why not. 
 

I’ll be doing it on my 2015 Sport either tonight or very soon.

 

Thanks for looking.

Totally forgot to mention the drain plug. Forgot to take a picture when I first got it out. The smell was pretty intense. I took this pic after taking a huge amount off. Maybe 1/4”. Both of the other drain and fills had minimal.

Why not add a drain plug?

Valid point, never done it before. Watched a few videos of guys doing it. If I was planning on keeping it forever I will probably do it.
