Question about Cars & Trucks
Mazda bt 50 problem hi I would like to change the auto trans oil in a 2007 bt-50 3ltr diesel i'm aware of the drain and level plug system but can only find a small rusty covered hex head stud in the middle upper area on the right side of box which i'm unsure if it is the filler plug also does the trans have a filter that has to be changed does the oil pan have to be removed to get to the filter like the old GM turbo 400 auto box i'm aware that the oil has to be mercon v type also what is the service schedule km duration how often ?thanking you cheers barry

from what i can gather there is no filter replacement, only a fluid exchange. this info is coming from a rather good borderline great mech. program.

I have owned a 1999 intrepid for 9 years. And have changed the oil many times in the 170,000 miles I've owned it. This car comes mostly with a 2.7 liter motor. It does some times have a 3.5 liter. As you open the hood,there is a sticker that tells you what motor it has. If you have the 2.7, between the two front wheels you have a cast aluminum oil "pan" You will see a oil filter sitting vertical, towards the passenger side.The bottom of the filter is almost flush with the bottom of the oil pan. Just to the side of the filter,towards the driver side, is a hex head oil plug. It will take a 11/16" wrench to remove it.Hope this helps lbreen

Transmissions are drained by removing the pan itself. A new filter is to be installed upon draining. That is why there is no drain pan plug. The Chevy Powerglides were the last American made car with a drain plug in the 1965

SOURCE: 2006 F430 Spider oil change.
the correct way is to **** the oil out with a pump like in the garage and not take the sump plug out ,these additional plugs you refer to are bolts holding the baffle plates in place insde the sump ..If you dont know what your doing then i respectfully suggest leave well alone and take to a garage ,even a experianced mechanic can get perplexed here but at the end of the day its only a car with a fancy name ,try working on a foden truck or a case catapillar now these are real mechanics nightmares
