But for those who do not have the money to buy FSM online I am offering to help to the community if you need certain information to do a repair I will gladly get you a write up for your job your doing. I am not giving out the account information to log in. Merely supplying privately a write up. Please keep thread clean and PM me
Please be patient as I drive a rig but will get back to you guys as soon as possible within a day or so.

Re: All DIY folk read this for help tackling your wk2 job

I have never seen a post or a DIY on how to service the transmission (2011-2013). I have done all maintenance except for that. Not sure if I already need it at 63k but I'm looking into it.

Thanks.

Run the engine until the transmission oil reaches operating temperature.
Raise and support vehicle.
Remove the bolts (5) and retainers (4) holding the oil pan to the transmission.
Remove the transmission oil pan (3) and gasket (2) from the transmission.
Remove the transmission oil filter (1) and o-ring from the electrohydraulic control unit.
Clean the inside of the oil pan (3) of any debris. Inspect the oil pan gasket (2) and replace if necessary.
Install a new oil filter (1) and o-ring into the electrohydraulic control unit.
Install the oil pan (3) and gasket (2) onto the transmission.
Install the oil pan bolts (5) and retainers (4). Torque the bolts to 8 Nm (70 in.lbs.).
Lower the vehicle and add 5.0 L (10.6 pts.) of transmission fluid to the transmission.
Check the oil level See: Service and Repair\Procedures\Check Oil Level

The check fluid section requires special dipstick..and scan tool. The evic reads different sensor. Sensor for fluid fill activated only when in drive readable only by starscan tool. Look at what charger n challenger guys do with wa580/nag1 tranny via google for alternate non dealer method

When both our JGC diesel and our Kia Optima EX reach 60, I will definitely have the tranny fluid replaced. I just do not buy into this "sealed for life" fluid b.s.
