    Forgot to post the side by side fluids. I know color does not tell you everything. But I do feel that "life time" wasn't ment for us to go pass 200k for example. I'll be doing a fluid analysis too. Feel that it is worth it, since I do plan to own more Mazda.

    I'm pretty sure the fluid turns dark pretty quick as a blue fluid, so I agree the color probably doesn't matter as much.

    I did 3 drain and fills of ATF a week apart and it was still dark.

    Hey guys. Here is a little update. I am pretty happy and surprised with my results. They didn't realized I did a little drain and flush, so my next sample would be different. But I don't foresee doing another ATF fluid analysis anytime soon. But I will drain and fill two more time slowly. That should cycle it.



    My next test is too see how well a Purolator Boss 5k filter with Valvoline Modern Engine full synthetic moto 0-20 hold up at 8.5k.

    Thanks for posting! Kinda fun comparing your numbers to mine seeing as we did ours not too far apart mileage wise.

    Looks like I'm vindicated once again. I have 102.5K miles now, and I will prove the point in real-world practice in the next 2-3 years.

    Anybody see the transmission thread with codes thrown due to contaminated oil pressure switch? Fix seems to be updating the TCM firmware to give the switch a higher threshold before the transmission is disabled to prevent damage. If that doesn’t work, simple hardware fix required. Had not seen that thread until most recent post.
