Hello Everyone,
So, I decided to DIY Drain and Fill the ZF 9-Speed Transmission Fluid. Just bought the OBD II and try to see if I can get the ATF Temperature, so far very impressive. (see pics)
My question is: I don't have the lift, I can use the jack stands to make sure it is level. In this case, I don't have to enter the VSA Maintenance Mode right?



So, this is the steps i'm going to do:

1) Just make sure the car is level and....
2) Remove both fill and drain bolts (let the fluid drain out)
3) Put the drain bolt back
4) Fill the ATF 3.1 fluid @ 3.5qts (I'll make sure to drain out and measure the right amount before fill in the new fluid)
5) Start the car and using the OBD II to get the ATF Temperature around 104 -115 F?
6) Remove the level bolt and let the extra fluid dip out.

So far that's what I'm going to do. Anyone have any suggestions to make it right?
I found the YouTube video on the Honda zf 9-speed transmission drain and fill. I think I can do it.
