Hello,

I currently own a 2012 Hyundai Sonata 2.4l and its almost time to exchange the transmission fluid. I was wondering if using the Mobil1 Synthetic ATF, will be fine for my vehicle?

The manual says to only use MICHANG ATF SP-IV, SK ATF SP-IV, NOCA ATF SP-IV, HYUNDAI genuine ATF SP-IV or brands meeting the above specification approved by Hyundai Motor Co.,


I will greatly appreciate your response.

how much does it usually cost to have the dealer flush and fill the tranny fluid? also is that something i can just get done at Mineke?
I was quoted $120 for a flush...most folks think it's not necessary. You could do multiple drain/fill, like some have done. Mine was not very dark...so I drained and filled. I may do another next yr...at $20 for full syn. it's cheap insurance!

Your signature picture is not showing...all I see is a p*ssy??? :surprise:

I did mine back at 42K miles (single drain/fill, the OEM method) with the OEM fluid (at that time it was the older, non-synthetic SP-IV) and am due to change it again. I was going to buy the OEM newer SP4-M fluid until another power user on the forums discussed him having switched to Amsoil OE Fuel-Efficient Synthetic ATF. It is rated for our cars (i.e., HYUNDAI/KIA SP-IV, SPH-IV, SP-IV-RR, NWS-9638, SP4-M). Plan on doing this in May and replace my in-line transfilter as well (Magnefine 3/8"). This time, I bought 12 quarts (one case - shipped to my house) and will do two drain/fills (with some driven miles between them) to get as much of the old fluid out as possible and replaced with the fresh stuff.

why not just have a local shop/dealer do the work, at least then it's guaranteed. also how many miles should this be done at?

Every 30K miles is my goal. I'd rather do it myself (DIY) and save some money (some wrench therapy as well).
