Thanks for the advice. I have one further question. Why doesn't the Bentley include the maintenance of the breather/vent on the top of the transmission? I live in Vermont and alot of crud and sand get's thrown up there and eventually blocked the breather. It seems that this should be a regular simple maintenance item. The guy at Meineke told me it is for them every 35k but there is nothing in any of the manuals about this simple task. The result as someone previously posted is that the oil filler pipe will throw back and out the fluid until you run dry and ruin the transmission.
