Hi Folks,

Fault:
car stalled, re started no problem but wouldnt do more than 15mph or show which gear was selected with red box. Stalled when coming to a stop.

I drained the old ATF, 3lt of the foulest ATF I have ever seen/smelt. And replaced with 3 litres of new ATF.
New ATF and filter will be done in 1000miles
Drain plug magnet had very little swarf.
My car is now driving very smoothly, no judder at traffic lights or clunky down-shifts when slowing down.

Questions:
Is 3 litres of ATF normal for a fluid change?
Can I expect future trouble or did I catch it early enough?

Thanks to this forum, I was able to solve this issue very quickly :d

Cheers,
Neil

Box holds 3.3 litres so your about right as youll never fully empty it when you drain it,id be amazed if it was ok for long though,i hope for your sake it is but renault auto boxes are chocolate and usually last 70k,s tops.
