I have a 2014 CP with a PCM 5.7 Excab engine.
The transmission is a ZF/ZFE 45A made in Italy. Boat has 350 hours on it.
ZF manual says change after first 25 hours and every 300 hours after that.
As a winter time project I was going to change the transmission fluid.
To drain fluid I will use a manual oil suction extractor with a new clean hose.
ZF Manual mentions that filter element should be replaced on transmission fluid change.
ZF Manual gives details but no illustrations on changing element.
Anyone changed one of these filter elements on a CP with this type of transmission?
Manual says fill with ATF oil for Automatic gear boxes.
It gave an extensive list of fluids to use in the ZF manual. It covers the world.
The ones I saw for the “US” was:
Chevron ATF F-30108, CITGO ATF DEXRON III F-30167
Anyone recommend a particular Transmission fluid for my boat?
Any suggestions or comments would be greatly appreciated.
