I have a 2002 mercury cougar V6 automatic and I know what the problem is. My car needs to have the transmission pan taken out and replaced along with the gasket. My dad and I want to fix it ourselves but...


easy job. Just loosen pan bolts enough to let the fluid start draining from one end. As more drains, keep loosening the pan bolts till you can remove pan and finish draining what's left in the pan. At this time, most people would also change the transmission filter body: it's right on bottom of trans. when the pan is removed, easily accesible. Parts stores sell a kit with new filter and pan gasket included. Anyway, now you are ready to install new pan gasket. Clean gasket mating surfaces as clean as you possibly can. let no oil or fluid get back on there. Place gasket on (most don't recommend adding sealant or gasket compound). Put pan on with all bolts fingertight. Then starting from center outward, start tightening them down to torque specs-it'd be pretty light torque, like around 20 ft-lbs-might want to ask a ford mech. what torque specs are. When done, refill ****** and check for leaks after running car.

I need to change the transmission fluid, but I don't know how... I'm frustrated plz help...


simple task!!! jack up the car. get a pan BIGGER than the tranny pan itself. put pan below.while your doing this you might as well change the filter also!!!!!! start unbolting the pan, but leave a bolt at all 4 corners.once you have all but the 4, break them loose, but dont take them out.take two bolts out and let it drop down to get most of the tranny fluid out. once most of its out, take the other two bolts out and bam! there you go. if you have a new filter, it just pops out, make sure you take out the old seal.

LOOK IN OWNERS MANUAL FOR TRANSMISSION FLUID CAPACITY.BUY 10 QUARTS .TO BE ON SAFE SIDE SO YOU WILL HAVE ENOUGH FLUID ON HAND. IF YOU DONT HAVE NO TRANSMISSION FLUID CAPACITY. ADD 7.5 QUARTS FLUID.WAIT FOR 2 MINUTES.CHECK TRANSMISSION FLUID LEVEL ON DIP STICK. SHOULD BE ON THE FULL MARK.CRANK VECHICLE UP.LET IDLE FEW MINUTES CHECK TRANSMISSION DIP FLUID LEVEL IF DROPPED ADD LITTLE MORE.WHILE ENGINE IDLING GETTING WARM UP.

Is the Transmission sealed, can not change the filter and fluid? Where is the radiator, is it also sealed, can water only be put in the overflow?


The transmission is not sealed in the v8 I looked up. It's bolted together. prev.gif next.gif Fluid Pan Removal & Installation To Remove:
  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the precautions in the beginning of this section
  2. Raise and support the vehicle
  3. Place a drain pan under the transmission fluid pan
  4. Remove or disconnect the following:
    • Drain plug and drain the fluid
    • Shifter cable bracket NOTE: The transmission fluid pan gasket is reusable, clean and inspect for damage; if not damaged, the gasket should be reused.
    • Fluid pan and gasket
    • Transmission fluid filter
    • Clean and inspect the transmission fluid pan and magnet
    • Converter housing access plug
    • Converter drain plug
To Install:
NOTE: A new converter drain plug must be used to prevent leakage.
  1. Install or connect the following:
    • Install the converter drain plug. Torque to 89 in-lbs (10 Nm)
    • Install the converter housing access plug
  2. Lubricate the seals and install the transmission fluid filter. Torque the bolts to 89 in-lbs (10 Nm)
  3. Install the oil pan magnet in the transmission fluid pan NOTE: The transmission fluid pan gasket is reusable, clean and inspect for damage; if not damaged, the gasket should be reused.
  4. Install the transmission fluid pan and gasket and loosely install the screws.
  5. Using a crisscross sequence, torque the screws to 8 ft-lbs (11 Nm)
  6. Install the shifter cable bracket. Torque bolts to 18 ft-lbs (25 Nm)
  7. Install the drain plug. Torque to 19 ft-lbs (26 Nm) NOTE: It will be necessary to hold the drain plug (larger plug) with a wrench when removing the fluid level indicator plug.
    NOTE: Use 3/16 inch Allen key to remove the fluid level indicator plug. Remove the fluid level indicator plug.
  8. Verify the transmission fluid level

What do I need to do to replace the automatic transmission filter?


Drop the tranny pan...(loosen the bolts). Be prepared to allow the fluid to come out/drip out. Then remove bolts, drop the pan, wipe the pan out. Remove the old gasket. Remove old filter. Install new filter. Install new gasket. Install the pan and tighten the bolts to the specified ft/lbs. torque with a torque wrench.

Honestly, it's the transmission...bring it a shop and have an exchange done. Because you won't get all of the old fluid out, and you might as well do the whole service. Hope this is helpful.

After replacing valve cover gasket with dry fel-pro gasket,


Your new gasket has tabs that make it easy to set in place; the tabs hold the position properly on the cylinder head. The gasket also has the rubber coating to establish a tight seal between the cylinder head and the the valve cover, even if there is slight damage or warping. Proper torque for the valve cover bolts is between 50-100 in-lbs., which is about 8 ft-lbs for a maximum.

If you have the gasket properly set, and proper torque on the valve cover bolts, you should not leak.

If you still experience a leak after double checking the gasket and the bolt torque, I would replace the valve cover itself. You will find several at most any salvage yard, and probablly will cost you $10.00 or less for a used valve cover.

I hope this helps you, and I wish you luck on your repair.

1998 dodge avenger tranmission control solenoid


Below the link for Chrysler/Dodge auto-transmission manual
http://www.scribd.com/doc/7095618/545rfe-Transmission-Manual

Solenoid mounts outside the transmission, so you do not need to remove the transmission to install. It should be located between fuse box and air filter housing on the top of transaxle case and right next to transmission controle module.
I hope his step by step procedure will work for you. It is not hard at all to replace the solenoid. There are three 10mm bolts. You will also need to remove the input speed sensor. One thing to look out for is not bending the gasket when installing the new solenoid:
  1. Disconnect battery negative cable.
  2. Remove air cleaner assembly.
  3. Remove electrical connectors for transmission control module (please refer the manual I send you and autozone.com website).
  4. Remove the Transmission Control Module
  5. Disconnect and remove the input speed sensor
  6. Disconnect the transmission oil cooler lines. Cap off hoses and fittings to prevent foreign matter intrusion.
  7. Disconnect the solenoid/pressure switch assembly connector.
  8. Remove the three solenoid/pressure switch assembly-to-transaxle case bolts
  9. Remove solenoid/pressure switch assembly and gasket

Keep everything clean to prevent foreign materials to go inside
  1. Install solenoid/pressure switch assembly to case using a new gasket
  2. Install bolts and torque to 13 N·m (110 in. lbs.)
  3. Install 8-way connector and torque screw to 4 N·m (35 in. lbs.)
  4. Uncap and install transmission oil cooler lines.
  5. Install input speed sensor and torque to 27 N·m (20 ft. lbs.)
  6. Install Transmission Control Module
  7. Install air cleaner assembly.
  8. Connect battery negative cable.

P.s. 1. You can fine some clips on YouTube.com at least for similar cars
2. Also at Autozone.com you can find the component location for your car and repair guide
3. Also there is a link for Mitchel1 online manual useb by US mechanic 1 week subscribtion is
