Engine is out! Thank you for your help.
I have one question about automatic gearbox. Should i let oil out when gearbox is still out of the car and put same amount back in? Or should i do it when is all put back in and change the oil with full warmup protocol?

I would wait until it is back together. It is important to get the level correct, and you don't know if it is correct now.

Presumably as the transmission is out of the car then it is now possible to do a complete drain of the oil? This would safe having to faff around with multiple oil changes later.

Make UTTERLY certain you use the right gearbox oil. I don't know what the right stuff is, but if you use the wrong stuff it will damage the gearbox fairly quickly. It might also (as it is out) be worth getting the gearbox refurbished, as this could save you grief later on.

Zf recomendation list is long, but people all over talk about mobile lt 72141, so i will put that in.
The guy that sokd me gearbox said that it have 50k miles, so i hope that it will outlive the engine with correct service intervals.

Hi all, i found leakage that i was thinking it is from brake hoses but as it tournout it is from suspension hoses. Can i replace the hoses that are on pictures by myself, or it have special technician to do it?
Another thing is oil leakage from vacuum pump. Should i put new gasket or just to put gasket sealant?

Thank you all
