RE:PERDANA V6 GEAR BOX   Perdana gearbox, what a famous issue, and it's still hot till today[:D] The maintenance for this gearbox range from changing ATF oil, flushing, servicing valvebody to changing clutches. However, normal mechanic out there can only do the first 2, the remainings needs a really specialist's works, of course price becomes comparatively higher. Any owner out there has gone for these specialist's services? Appreciate if can share with the rest![:D] changing a recon unit is a quick alternative, but ... depends on luck whether will get a good unit.

RE:PERDANA V6 GEAR BOX   ztfun & astroboy, Thanks for ur comments, pro. Actually the gb was flushed but not using the proper "flushing machine" as mentioned by one of our member some where in this topic(?). 2 litres used for that purpose and 3 ltr for refill (I guessed, as I was not around during the servicing). The price per litre is RM24 - yeah, quite expensive than yours. The detail quot: - 5 litres Auto Oil (ATF SP III) - Filter - Gasket - Service Charge All for RM200. So, not too expensive lar, rite? Gear shift 1-2-3 and 4-3-2-1 now much smoother. But D-N still a little jerky (any idea why?). cheers! wkr

RE:PERDANA V6 GEAR BOX   Thanks god I followed a friend's advice to service my gb even though the tauke where I bought my V6 told me "no need to service ANYTHING cos the 1st owner already service EVERYTHING". The mileage was 50km then. So, I assumed the gb was serviced too. What a mistake. Recently, a fren of mine introduced me to a gb mechanics here in Ipoh. And true enough, the inside was too 'dirty' that if I wait another 20Km to service it, it may collapse any time. The RM200 I spent was really worth it! And I was lucky the gb is still in good condition. Since the mech did not flush wt a "fulshing machine" (?) he asked me to come back and change the oil again after 5KM. Is this OK? Pls advice. FYI, the mechanics looks very experienced, even EON hire his service to repair their customers' gb. Why? no gb expert in EON ah? So, my advice to perdana owners in Ipoh, dont send yr car to EON to repair gb cos you will need to pay extra 'tax' to them - EON pun main "sub-con" oh...

RE:PERDANA V6 GEAR BOX   wkr, u ipoh lang ah? me oso woh, but working in Penang, anyway, ur damn right, never ever visit eon/proton sc, they suck, their workers sux, n their price sux, i aint sure if its a good thing not to flush it, its recommended to, cuz if u change oil, onli 30% of the ATF is change, the remaining is trapt somewhere inside the GB that they call it valve thingie, i duno, ask ur mechanic to flush it lar, the best thing u would wana do, y change gearbox oil need rm200?from my experience, the maximum ATF u can replace is 3Litre (replace, not flushing). flushing would cost u 6.5-7Litre of ATF. EON/Proton SC will charge u rm28.90 per litre. find a mechanic that charge rm18.90/litre or lower if u can, cuz i got mine at rm18.90.

Then it is relaxing to hold when driving long distance on highways because of the 4 spokes.

RE:PERDANA V6 GEAR BOX   Look for eterna v6 single cam gb.It's an easy transplant.Check the clutch plate & cluth bearing.Change if those parts already worn out.Make sure u get the gear lever & clutch pedal together with the gb.
