I plan to change my Myvi (2009) auto transmission fluid, I know P2 DIII
(green color sticker, blue botol) confirm can be use since alot bengkel use it.

My question is can I use D3-SP as pic below, have anybody try it?


* I ask it because I have a few doubt as follow:
- The manual said use d3-sp

- 2009 I change the ATF at P2 service center is also use d3-sp

- I have doubt about the manual as someone around this zerotohundred forum point out the coolant capacity stated is wrong, it isjust 2.7L not the 5.7L stated in the book. I agree with it since i flush my coolant b4 and feel 5.7L is abit too much, impossible). DSC_0337.JPG
- A lot online seller said old Myvi use D3, an D3-SP is old SP3(red cap white botol), I don't agree it, my understanding is SP3 is SP3, my Myvi definitely cannot use SP3, but 1st time service P2 pour D3-SP in my gearbox and no problem, so i assume two different speck, (just that that time P2 not market their D3-SP as 3-4L botol for sales at that time, now they are selling).

So I need to hear you all Sifu opinion:driver::driver::driver:

From the group who drive half cut YRV turbos that used the same gearbox, get the Shell Spirax III from shell petrol station. The grey bottle one.

They swear by it, so do I.
I used to use Pennzoil fully synthetic multi ATF and it slipped.

don't worry about it. Dexron III had multiple versions, F-G-H and now SP. It's all the same oil with slight tweaks to the formulation. As long as you're using DEXRON III base - you're fine. SPIII is not the same thing.

Thanks for the explanation. Going to buy d3-sp ATF, A/T filter gasket and primer metal paint. Since my A/T drain pan got some rusty part because last time (long time ago) sulfuric acid of the battery overflow drain to bottom at touch it, and i had put some grease to cover it to prevent it rust temporary.

Since now going to take the pan out, planning to clean it, wipe the grease out with some soak water( or brake cleaner if it help to clean the grease, never try before), and brush out the rust part with metal brush, dry and finally spray the primer on it and black paint. Hope it help.

I am on 50k km for my Myvi. I have never changed atf so far.

How frequent should we do it? If didn't do does it mean change gear from ie P to D harder
