England 2013 Freelander 2 TD4_e GS Auto Sumatra Black

I'm looking at getting an auto FL2. The indy I use for servicing my car bought a gearbox flushing machine last year. I called to see him this week to ask questions about auto's (my FL2 is manual), he said that he has flushed many LR auto gearboxes and many people commented on how the gearbox performs better after being flushed. Black MY2013 SD4 GS Auto, Wood Company Armrest, Freel2 sticker.

When i have booked it in and got it done in the next few weeks, I'll ask and let you know. I know that they have a piece of kit (commonly referred to on my other cars forum as the "sucky, pumpy, squirty thing") which is used in servicing ZF gear boxes. They are usually very accommodating and happy to show clients about so i'll report back.

hi djc,how did the flush go and did the box feel better Question


Sorry, havent got around to this job yet. I had two other major jobs on another car and a motorhome to cope with first. They were "must-do's"! But I will be getting this done before xmas. It'll be the cars xmas present! 2009 Freelander 2 TD4 HSE Auto - Stornoway Grey - Hers (His, really)

To avoid flushing,What worked for my mechanic was to remove the filler plug and the oil cooler pipe and after all the fluid has drained down, he blasted it with compressed air through the filler plug. All the rest of the fluid came out at the other end, meaning the disconnected oil cooler pipe...

I didn't get my auto box flushed at Parkside. I use them for servicing and as I was booking my car in for a MOT I thought I'd ask them for a price to do it. Black MY2013 SD4 GS Auto, Wood Company Armrest, Freel2 sticker.
