Thanks so much for posting this procedure!
4.4qts for a fluid/filter change... Interesting. Now I need an extra qt. of the ATF I plan on using.
Can you post pictures of the 'Fill Cap'?
Form your post:
Therefore, a fill cap in the top of the Drive Unit (see top arrow) and level set plug (see lower arrow) sets the fluid
Obviously to use this method the car must be jacked up and level. I'll have to skip the pump running portion.
Or fill it with 4.4qts. Drive it around the neighborhood briefly to hopefully have the pump run, then jack and level the car and remove the 'level plug' and see what comes out.
It may be slightly discolored due to the quantity that did not get removed when the pan was dropped.
I believe the 'scan tool' is the gm tool and not a standard OBD2 adapter. It needs gm diagnostic SW to make the pump run.
I like this little EV and want to keep it healthy as long as possible.
The A123 LFP based battery pack seems to be hanging in there just fine!!
