Have spent the weekend looking at and driving a LOT of cars for a friend. We looked at a few things to replace his 505 STi, inc Ovlov 850, Saab GM900 and a few others. But he remains a Pug fan, and an immaculate 97 406 ST will be gracing his garage. (yes I got all misty eyed driving 406s... )
It is an auto (couldnt convince him of the joys of a manual). It is very healthy feeling transmission at 120K km, with clean fluid.
Questions - the fluid is yellow - can I assume this is the proper stuff in it? Its not Dexron III, thats for sure.
Mr Peugeot reckons these are sealed for life. I would think it has been changed at least once - it wouldnt be completly clean at those KMs otherwise surely!! The dealer he is buying from is appraently hesitant to change the fluid if the manufacturer says its a sealed unit. This seems silly to me - should be a no brainer to change the oil...
Can we just change the fluid as a precaution without drama?
