Well I've been running the car for a few days following my mechanic performing an ABC flush, filter changer, Star diagnostic and Rodeo.
He indicated that he cleared some codes (he didn't specify what), that there were no leaks in the system, and a visual inspection of the accumulators showed nothing (although a visual inspection will not tell you much, as he confirmed).
I've noticed that I no longer have the ABC flashing AS MUCH as I used to. In fact, it now only happens on sharps drops in the road surface once im doing over 100km/h and when the ABC is set to sport mode. Unfortunately roads in Western Australia aren't the best unless they are new tarmac. Otherwise, I've performed the self test and the car no longer bounces, and I have to use significant force to push the car down on any corner (so much so that I'm afraid of denting the panels!)
So I've driven it hard on ocassion and I haven't had any problems. The fluid level hasn't dropped. So I can only hope the flush and new filters have solved the problem...
