According to the webpage on Suncoast’s website, the transmission oil is “for the gearbox portion, not the PDK clutch side“. Assuming one would consider the clutch to be part of the transmission, it does seem to infer that the transmission uses two different fluids.There is no manual transmission for Macan.
Perhaps one is for the PDK and the other for the transmission gearbox? I have no idea. The DIY on the forum is for the PDK.
OK. lets ask the same question in a different way.The 2 oil theory is new
Since I started this thread I guess I will weigh in, but I hate to disagree with a porsche dealer
There is no separate fluid for the clutches and the transmission in the Macan. As far as I know they all have a 7 speed PDK sourced from audi with only 1 fluid. Maybe the 19 Macan has a different transmission?
I just looked through my repair manual and they don't refer to clutch or PDK fluid. They call it all ATF and there is only 1 description of changing fluid with 1 fluid. The exploded parts diagram only shows 1 fluid.
FWIW the 911 PDK has 2 fluids.
OK. lets ask the same question in a different way.
what comes out of plug 5, and what comes out of plug 1?
assuming that i look at the correct transmission of course.
also, rear final drive oil change is called for on the 40K service. number 3 filler plug doesn't have a drain plug so i assume oil change is done by suction?
awesomeCheck out my other thread for diy awd final drive (transmission oil) there are 2 oils for the pdk. One for the clutches that is atf that runs through an oil cooler built into the rad. The other oil is mtf gear oil which is for the gearbox section and front diff which is built into the pdk.
