hi guys. today I find out that the transmission oil cap is misising. somehow it fell off. I have driven it maybe six months (thats the time I got fluid level checked) without oil cap. do you think I should flush fluid and replace filter? does this filler tube ends before filter? I mean any dirt goes into filler hose filtered before entering transmission?

Fortunately the transmission oil filler is only a dipstick sized hole and located at the back of the engine bay, the chances of many contaminants entering is small, compared to the position of the engine oil cap. A change of transmission fluid and filter wouldn’t do any harm though, especially if you are getting close to a fluid change.

thank you. I changed fluid at 104.000 km and now it is 140.000 and I'm going to get it changed on monday, it'll be an early fluid change but this time I'll check it twice to make sure they install that cap properly.
