    ZF AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSIONS


    ZF’s automatic transmissions are filled with specially developed synthetic oils.
    At very high operating temperatures, the oil ages faster than under normal conditions.


    Examples include:
    · Frequent trips at high speeds.
    · Frequent trips with a trailer in tow.
    · Sporty driving

    Depending on the driving style, ZF therefore recommends a transmission oil change every 80 000 to 120 000km or within 8 years. http://www.zf.com/corporate/en_de/products/services/repair_service/repair-service.html


    We provide a solution for vehicles that are out of warranty and/or out of a maintenance plan.


    Examples of vehicles fitted with a ZF transmission include:
    · Land Rover - Freelander (9speed), Evoque (9speed), Discovery 1 – 4, Range Rover
    · Volkswagen - Amarok 6 speed manual and 8 speed auto (8HP45), Touareg T5
    · Audi - Q5, Q7 and most of the sedan cars
    · BMW - X1, X3, X5, X6 and most of the sedan cars
    · Jeep Cherokee, Grand Cherokee
    · Porsche

    For a more comprehensive list and to confirm if your vehicle is fitted with a ZF transmission, please refer to the attached document.

    We normally do a double flush only on customer request, depending if the adaption values are within spec and the oil quality is reasonable.
    A double flush would be R5000 + VAT

    A double flush should not be necessary if vehicle mileage is between 80 000 and 120 000km / 8 years and there are no other shift issues.

    Just a quick question. The Jeep Grand Cherokee wk2 3,6 liter is a ZF 8 speed design but apparently manufactured by Chrysler. (Not on pdf list...)

    Would it be possible for you to service the gearbox at ZF when the time comes?

    We will be able to do the service as its a ZF designed 8HP45/70 transmission built under license by Chrystler, they call it 845RE transmission.

    Hi Koos

    We are currently busy with a review to open a ZF branch in Durban.
    The oil change special is only for ZF Services Meadowdale (Germiston) as well as the Cape Town branch.

    If you are having transmission problems you can organize that the dealers in Durban do the diagnostic and remove the transmission (if necessary) and then send it up to ZF Meadowdale for repairs.

    Hi Hanny

    ZF Cape Town do have all the necessary equipment to do the diagnostics on BMW transmissions, they have also recently ordered Testman upgrades to do all the various other vehicle types and therefore should be able to do it for Land Rover vehicles also.

    I am currently in contact with them and I will ensure they are able to do the diagnosis and adaption values on Land Rover vehicles.

    Hi Marius, good to hear thanks for the update. Any idea when they will be up and running? I was there last week and it wasn't possible.

    Just received a call from Marius, really nice guy like all the folk I have delt with at ZF.

    They will have the necessary diagnostics in place in CT soon (likely next week)

    Fingers crossed an adaptive adjustment will cure my 3rd gear issue!

    Was at ZF edenvale a few days back, Nico mentioned that they are in the throws of purchasing a flushing machine that connects to the tranny cooler pipes, allowing proper flush of everything including the torque converter, good thing to have!!

    Just out of curiosity, when does Land Rover suggest an oil change? I drive a 2012 Disco 4(V, and how long does this oil change take?

    They don't, sealed for life according to them from what I understand, trust me, do it if you are approaching 80k and be happy about it, probably most indies would do it as an overnight service maybe even same day, there is some work involved, pretty well documented.

    Hi Oradba69

    If you bring the car in, it will stand for 1hour with a fan blowing on the transmission/engine area to cool off (and not burn the skin off your hands).

    It would take approximately 3 hours to do the oil service.

    (On Land Rover vehicles it usually takes longer as the cross member should be removed and the engine mountings loosened and the engine slightly lifted (5cm) in order to remove the sump.)

    To be safe you can work on 4 hours in total,this includes a test drive and car wash (inside and outside).

    We can drop the customer off at Greenstone Mall and collect him after the service again.

    He will then have the oppertunity to drive with his car back to ZF and give some feedback on the gear shifts etc.

    Regards
    Nico
