GET NEW GASKET AND FILTER FOR TRANNY ALONG WITH THE FLUID (BEFORE YOU BEGINE)
GET A LARGE FLAT DRAIN PAN.
PUT CAR UP ON 4 JACK STANDS.
place drain pan under tranny pan.
undo tranny pan screws - allow one corner to hang lower than the other corner (to allow fluid to drain) slowly remove them all.
Its messy! empty tranny pan into drain pan. set tranny pan to the side. undo the filter clamp, carefully remove the filter - set into the drain pan, remove the gasket around the tranny body/tranny pan.
Clean tranny block surface with clean cloth. install new filter, install clamp tightly. Clean tranny pan, place gasket onto pan and then reinstall tranny pan. (this only change the fluid in the tranny body and pan) If you wan the fluid out of the torque convertor you have pull the pan under the torque convertor and turn the convertor so you can get at the drain plug. Allow fluid to drain into drain pan. Reinstall drain plug and pan. (you will need a lot of fluid) Check manual for qty. Place car back on to ground/floor. Refill tranny through filler tube. Do not start the engine until oil is at full mark, and when you do start it do not all it to run for than 4 minutes - stop and add more fluid and check full mark again (repeat until no longer sinks below full mark. gently test drive around you block -- come back and check level while engine running. Top up if needed.
Siphon out excess above full mark. Test drive around 3 block,
come back check full mark. Because the torque convertor was emptied it can take a while to get all the air out it.
While some vehicles are equipped with a transmission drain plug, most are not. The ones that are not equipped require you to drop the transmission pan to drain the oil, which is a good idea anyway because there is a filter inside the pan which should be changed when you change the fluid. Look under your car and locate the transmission pan. If it has a plug it will usually be located on the back side of the pan. If it does not have a plug, the easiest way to drain the pan is to remove the screws from all but one side of the pan. When you have screws left in only one side, steadily loosen the remaining screws a few turns at a time allowing to pan to tilt slowly downward releasing the fluid steadily and avoiding a big mess. While you have the pan off, be sure to replace that transmission fluid filter and pan gasket. They usually come in a set. Hope this helps you out. Have a good day!
There is no dipstick on these vehicles like u
will find on older american cars.
The transmission fluid can
only be checked when the transmission fluid temperature is between 35 to
45 degrees celcius.
The only way to know the fluid temp
is with a diagnostic scan tool. At that point you remove the fill plug in the bottom of the transmision
pan and fill with fluid until fluid drains back out. Use only genuine
VW fluid part number G 052162A2 or you will damage the transmision. If
you fill with fluid while tranny is to cool you will over fill and
damage the transmission. If you fill with fluid when the tranny is to
hot you will underfill and run a slight risk of damaging the
transmission. The fill plug and drain plug are next to each other so
make sure you are removing the right one.
You need a scan tool to check the automatic transmission fluid on this
car. The scan tool is needed to know the temperature of the fluid which
must be close to 40 degrees celsius. At that point you remove the fill
plug in the bottom of the transmision pan and fill with fluid until
fluid drains back out. Use only genuine VW fluid part number G 052162A2
or you will damage the transmision. If you fill with fluid while tranny
is to cool you will over fill and damage the transmission. If you fill
with fluid when the tranny is to hot you will underfill and run a slight
risk of damaging the transmission. The fill plug and drain plug are
next to each other so make sure you are removing the right one. <<<< The above I found on a vw site, The tranny should take about 5 qts for a filter change, or 12 qts for a total rebuild. And the fill plugs on th eside of the tranny, one should be up, that is the filler, and lower one is the level, when it seeps out the lower one, it is full. Hope this helps.
well first theres no plug to drain fluid, you will have to remove the trany pan, the pan gasket and filter need to be replaced,next thing is that it doesnt hold 12.8 qts, thats only if it was dry empty,just dropping the pan doesnt get all the oil out, the converter is still full and the lines and cooler,i would replace the filter and pan gasket then take to a garage and have a bg trany service done, this service gets 100% of the old oil out,your doing a drain and fill, this only takes about 6 qts,good luck.
There is no front diff on a 98 intrepid. It has velocity shafts that come directly out of the tranny to the wheels. Are you talking about draining the transmision fluid? If so you need to remove the pan on the bottom of the tranny there is no drain plug I am aware of.
On an automatic tranny, the tranny oil pan is removed to drain the tranny fluid - a somewhat messy job. Typically when this done the tranny filler is replaced. A new pan gasket is installed in this procedure.
On the manual tranny, there is a drain plug at the bottom side of the tranny to drain the oil.
I have used a home made setup using a suction pump with small diameter tubing to **** the fluid out from the tranny filler tube. This is when I was replacing the filter and I dropped the pan. I did the suction routine to avoid all that fluid dripping out when you loosen the pan.
Have you located the leak? Is it from the tranny oil pan or maybe from a tranny cooler line?
first you need to buy transmission fluid new filter and new gasket.you need 11.4 pints of transmision fluid.raise front of vechicle.set parking brake.block both back wheels.besure support vechicle weight with jack stands. get a drain pan.if your transmission pan dont have a drain plug.loosen rear pan bolts a few turns.remove the front and side transmission pan bolts. let fluid drain.remove tranny pan. then clean old gasket material from transmission and pan carefully.dont scratch or damage surface.clean old tranny bolts using brake cleaner or buy new tranny bolts.you have to put a tiny film of rtv silicone on tranny bolts so they wont leak.carefully remove old tranny filter and put on new filter.clean all grease grim away from tranny pan it should be **** and span because.you might need a little gasket adhesive to hold gasket in place while putting pan back on transmission.to line up bolt holes.loosely put all bolts in you have to move pan a little to get holes line up.when all is finish put tranny fluid back in.besure you put 11.4 pints back in that about 6.5 quarts. make sure tranny fluid level is right before driving vechicle.l
There IS a transmission drain plug on the 2002 Ford Explorer! It is, however, difficult to get the fluid back in as there IS NO dipstick (tube) to refill it. I installed the pan bolts far enough to hold the pan up (level) and then stuck a hose (attached to a funnel at top of engine compartment) through the opening between the pan and the bottom of the transmission. I was able to put five quarts in that way - no more as it will overflow (trust me). You can check other sites on how to check to see if that's enough and how to add more as needed. That's not simple either. Great idea Ford Motor Company (sarcasm) !!!!!!
