How to Remove Water from Automatic Transmission Fluid

If you're like me who was victimized by typhoon Ondoy or got your car submerged in flood waters, chances are that your engine's soaked in water

In addition to change oil, gasoline/diesel, brake fluid and other stuff, a change ATF needs to be done again about two to three times before you can really get rid of water in your car's transmission system.

An ATF change costs about P700 at Shell service stations plus P75 price for labor. Instead of just changing ATF, why not ask the mechanic to open the transmission cover plate to drain it throroughly by using an air compressor rather than requesting another costly ATF change.

It worked for me...
the mechanic on duty received a nice tip from me :P
