    I think the idea is you then pump 4 litres back in via the oil cooler stub, couple the hose back up and then run it again to mix up the old and new oil then drain it again via the oil cooler pipe, the proper machine does it better obviously, but the guy in the thread couldnt find anyone to do it so came up with his idea, its now known as the Filo oil change so hes famous probably for all time!
    I first did mine 2 yrs ago and then again last week, only single flush ie 4 out and 4 back in, will do it again in the next year or two, its not as good as a proper flush but is fast and easy to do plus cheap as well, in fact i would say its quicker than a std engine oil change, the only two points to watch are 1, makes sure car is dead level I used a sprit level on the slam panel and 2, make sure gbox sump is at correct temperature when doing level check.

    I pumped my oil out into one of them vacuum oil extractor tools mainly as it has clear markings on the side for quantities, then I used a hand pump again with quantity markings to pump it back in a little to much dont matter as when you do level check the excess will come out of the level hole.

    Ive got enough oil to do wifes A6 and when I do I will try and remember to take some pics etc.

    Thanks for sharing great info.

    But while at it - after getting the 4 liters out of the TC - why not open the drain plug on the sump and drain as much as possible from there too?

    Then pump back the 4 liters into the TC via the hose stub, then pump as much as possible into the fill-hole on gearbox. And finally monitor the temp, move lever around, and pump more into the fill on the gearbox as needed.

    Then it should be possible to get around 8 liters out....

    Because there wont be much more than 1/2 a litre in there at best as youve just pumped it out, I would say the rest would be in the valve block etc, but Im no expert.

    A lof of these figures quoted are dry figures ie the component has never seen oil before, quite normal for the book to say engine takes 6.8 litres, but any more than 6 litre puts it over the max mark, so you may find the book says the box takes 8 and you will only ever get 6 out at best if you are really determined.
    Im sure all the invoices will say 8 litres no matter what they actually use!

    Ive done many over the years not flushes but drain and refill, old 4 speed auto land rovers, newer 6 speed auto land rovers, plenty of 5 auto speed mercs and rough rule is 4 litres pretty much covers them all.
    Some of the mercs were good as the t/c had a drain screw fitted so you got a decent amount of oil out in one hit, Iirc the merc sprinter autos still have this feature but not the cars.
