    On the A4, a fluid and filter change is required maintenance. Very easy to do with the exception of removing the filter seal from the valve body. That can be a bit tricky without the appropriate tools.

    so then the mileage does not matter? i should go ahead and do it? I mean i check the fluid wen the engine is hot and at idle, and the level is fine and color as well.

    what about on my M-6? the motor has been out but i'm not sure if they change the trany fluid, i'm guessing they did cause it would leak out wen they take the drive shaft of rite? either way i just want to do it to be and the safe side. I'm just not sure if it's save to do it on it?

    I change all the fluids in all our cars -- manual or automatic and have never had an issue.
