Section 7: Lubrication and Fluids
Transmission lubrication is essential and must be maintained to ensure long life of the transmission. It is extremely important to use proper fluid. Also, it is important to check and change oil as outlined in the maintenance schedule below.
NOTE: Running vehicle low on transmission oil can damage transmission and void its warranty.
Transmission Maintenance Schedule
Check case housing for damage and possible fluid leakage after each use.
Check fluid level every 6 months or every 100 hours (whichever comes first).
Change fluid once every 4 years or every 400 hours (whichever comes first).
Transmission Fluid Type and Capacity See also "Section 10: Specifications and Capacities" on page 40.
Type of Fluid: Dextron 3 automatic transmission fluid
Fluid capacity: 2 quarts or fill to bottom of fill plug.
Transmission Oil Level Check Refer to Figure 7-8
Check transmission oil level at fill plug (See Figure 7-8) as follows:
Prepare vehicle for maintenance as outlined in steps 1-6 on page 22.
Remove fill plug and verify oil is level with bottom of fill hole.
Add new fluid at the check hole if fluid level is low.
Replace fill plug and tighten securely.
Transmission Fluid Change
Not Required unless water gets in the fluid
The transmission fluid needs to be changed only if water gets into it. Drain transmission fluid by siphoning the fluid out through the fill hole or remove transmission from the vehicle to drain the fluid out through the fill hole.
For your safety and the safety of others it is important that the master cylinder fluid be maintained. Have a Land Pride Service Technician inspect the vehicle if the master cylinder is loosing fluid frequently.
Brake Fluid Maintenance Schedule
Check fluid reservoir monthly.
Fill reservoir immediately if low or if braking capabilities
begin to fade.
Brake Fluid Type and Capacity See also "Section 10: Specifications and Capacities" on page 40
Type of fluid: DOT 3
Quantity: Fill to within 1/2” of reservoir opening.
Brake Fluid Level Check Refer to Figure 7-9
The master cylinder fluid reservoir is located just above the foot pedals. Remove filler cap and visually inspect level of fluid inside the reservoir. Add DOT 3 fluid to the reservoir until filled to within 1/2” of reservoir opening.
