    Is there a consensus about changing the transmission fluid and rear
    axle fluid for an '92 automatic 240 sedan?

    Haynes says something while the owner's manual for the 240 says
    something else.

    Thanks.

    Wouldn't hurt to flush the transmission every 2 years or 50k miles, rear end
    can be done less frequently unless you have a limited slip diff.

    Green Book says change the ATF every 30,000 miles (if auto box) and add fluid to
    rear axle when level is down on regular checks.

    Cheers, Peter.

  4. The transmission fluid should be flushed/replaced (not just changed
    in the pan)
    every three or four years - that's more or less the consensus. The gear
    oil in the
    differential should probably be replaced every 5 or 6 years, but that
    isn't as
    critical as making sure the fluid level is ok. I'd definitely do it at
    least once if
    it's never been done.
