    5 liters is about all you get in when not draining the torque converter. The last 3 liters are still in the transmission and cooler/cooler lines.

    So when should we change the transmission oil and filter? My transmission oil life monitor shows 83% now. Thanks.

    The oil life monitor is your engine oil. I change mine at approx 2000m 3250km. The manual says 3000m 5000km.

    As far as transmission I did mine at 50000m 80000km. The manual says 100000m 160000km.

    I do have 2 oil life monitors on the nav screen, one is for engine oil and the other is for transmission oil. I bought my srx one year ago, the transmission oil life drops to 83% from 100% after 30k km drive.

    I see a lot of helpful feedback already, so I wanted to make sure to post the proper Cadillac Customer Assistance team information in case Ctzl or Fschuett have any additional queries or would like further assistance down the line.

    Ctzl, GM of Canada's hotline is 800-263-3777, and they're open M-F 7:30am - 11:30pm, Sat 7:30am - 6:00pm EST.

    My 2004 Cadillac SRX needs transmission oil change every year (15000 KM) as per my oil life monitor. I don't know if this is normal here in the middle east where during summer we have around 40 to 60 degrees Celsius temperature. I am also having "hot idle trans" error message during long traffic which I think is related to the extreme low life of my transmission oil.

    Hi royan97,

    I have similar model 2004 V8. I recently purchased the car and had the transmission oil change with filter. The manual says to have it replaced every 80,000km. but 15,000km is way off. I think i'll find out if mine can survive more then 15,000km.
    How do you find the only dealer in Qatar? My first visit did not go well with them.

    Hi FSchuett,

    My Mechanic told me that it took 10 Liters to fill it up completely with the new filter.

    10 L is way too much for pan removal and filter change.

    In the extreme heat alone of Phoenix' Phoenix (AZ) and Asad's Qatar, I can understand accelerated fluid change intervals. Those "remaining fluid life" monitors use algorithms based on your actual driving conditions, measure more than just mileage driven.

    The 50,000 mile (80,000km) Phoenix cited for the trans fluid change is just what the manual calls for under the "severe service" part of the maintenance schedule.

    Yes, But I have gone higher. PJ is correct for the severe service. I do tow trailers regularly and one is near 4K. I plan to keep my 08 N* for a long time!

    He may be padding his bill, or, check the transfer case fluid level. If it is way over full you have a bad seal between it and the transmission.
