May have won my argument, but feel a slight fraud as my Caravelle only just turned 90,000 ....still I do feel people don't look after them as they should, which in turn brings up problems for future owners.

...good luck with the Merc

Default Re: 2.5 petrol with autobox?

I saw an article that said the autobox oil was sealed for life then another saying change every 40k miles.

The so called mechanics SHOULD use the correct grade of oil if its so critical to its operation. Trouble is most will take to a we work on all cars garage. Once youve had a T4 autobox go wrong you soon learn about the importance of the atm oil but before?
