In Reply to: HELP MY 93 740IL TRANSMISSION PROBLEMS posted by Rod on August 06, 2001 at 08:11:08:

This transmission requires the "lifetime" fluid. Its about $25 a quart from the stealer. DO NOT put anything else in the transmission. Below is the link to the Pain in the A$$ filling instructions Your leak could also be comming from the Electronic Module that is on the right side of the tranny. Their are 2 "O" Rings inside and the stealer told me that the pan has to be dropped to change the "O" rings. Cost me about $350 for the stealer to do a tranny service and change the "O" rings. Filter is $50. Here is a place that will sell you all that is required for service if you can find a local mechanic that will let you use his lift or will do it:

You will save about $40 on the parts and fluid from them. My local mechanic wanted 3 hours of labor @ $55 and the stealer 2 hours @ $75 so the price was $30 more at the stealer. So I let them do it.

My Transmission is liking pretty bad I tinkg may be the gasket if anyone knows how to replace and refill the transmission with new fluid all tips are wellcome also is the cooling system conect to the transmission
