Well, I'm not really sure what the manufacturer's recommended interval is... But to be honest with you, once every 100000 kms, or 5-6 years is plenty for a transmission fluid/filter change is enough (yes, there is a filter inside the pan of the transmission, assuming it's an automatic). But, if you notice problems earlier (transmission starting to slip, fluid discoloration, or any other transmission related driveability issues) the first thing to do would be to do a transmission oil/filter change as soon as you can. Beware of these places that offer a transmission flush, that's about as useful as putting winter air in your tires, and costs money for nothing.

never heard of this happening before ,sounds more like the code reader behind the steering lock is playing up.If it is then its dealer only,have a funny feeling this could be an expensive repair.Sorry i couldnt be much more help but this fancy electronic stuff is designed to stop general mechanics like myself from doing repairs.

An intermittent miss at idle that gets worse under load on a carbureted vehicled is almost always an ignition problem. The solution is simple and cheap. Put a new set of spark plugs and ignition wires on it, a distributor cap and rotor could be done as well if has been awhile since they've been done. This is just maintenance. If all of this has been done recently, replace the spark plugs again. They get dropped and cracked all the time in shipping or installation. This will likely solve your problem

To remove the oil pan on any vehicle, first remove anything obviously in your way...starter, exhaust pipe etc. Then disconnect the engine mounts and raise engine to gain sufficient clearance between frame and pan. You cannot support the engine from under the pan so either use a fixture above the engine or put blocks between mounts and engine to support it. After all rail bolts have been removed, remember that the oil pump pickup will interfere with removal somewhat but pan can be maneuvered around it. Anything preventing you from getting the pan out will then need to be removed or moved as they are identified. Be careful when raising the engine that you do not break anything above it as it comes up.
