It is not necessary to flush. If you are just doing drain and fills, I would recomend every 15,000 miles. If you drop the pan and changed the filter, every 30,000. It is not a bad idea to flush on a 60k service and then drain and fill every other time. This does depend on your habits with the vehicle of course. If you regulary tow or a ton of stop and go traffic, this is considered harsh or unusuall conditions and should be tended to more often to maintain system performance.

1997 transmission flush


Don't flush your transmission. Do a drain and fill. You can damage the transmission by doing a flush. There is a drain on the bottom of the transmission just take it off once drained put it back in. Fill then transmission throw the drip stick hole. To check level read the dip stick it will tell how to check it. If there is no instruction on it put the car in park and start it up. The car needs to be running to check propper level.

Need to find where transmisson fluid pan is 2002 mazda 626 trying to change trans fluid & filter


  • If this is a manual then the filter on this transmission is inside the transmission and is not serviceable unless you want to pull the entire transmission and open it. You will have two plugs on the transmission. One right above the other. Pull the top plug FIRST and then the bottom plug and wait for the transmission to drain. After it drains plug the bottom hole and fill the transmission until fluid just barely seeps out the top. Then plug the top hole and this is a transmission flush on this type of transmission.

  • If this is an automatic transmission then the filter is under the transmission pan itself. Drop the pan then the filter. Clean off old gasket and install new gasket. Place new filter in and replace the pan and snug the pan bolts up. Not to tight just snug them good. Then fill the transmission with a couple quarts of fluid and turn the car on, put your foot on the brake and run the car through all gears to fill the pockets. Check fluid level and adjust accordingly.

  • If you have any questions or comments you can leave them right here.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

Where is the location on a 1994 honda civic ex that i would fill the manual transmission with gear oil?


Hello,
Manual transmissions have a fill plug and a drain plug on the side of the transmission. The fill plug is a little above the drain plug. Pull the fill plug and fill the transmission until the transmission fluid just barely seeps out and re-plug the transmission. That is the proper way to fill it. You will need a long stem funnel to give you the room you need to fill it. Your transmission requires a 10W30 weight motor oil, just like your engine. If you have a little time and 3 or 4 quarts of oil laying around you can pull the fill plug first and THEN the drain plug and let all the oil drain out. Then plug the transmission and re-fill it with fresh oil and this is a transmission flush for your transmission. You just saved $70 shop charge doing this. I say pull the fill plug first and THEN the drain plug because the last thing you want to do is pull the drain plug first and then find out the fill plug has welded itself and won't come out and now you can't fill the transmission. Fill plug first always.

How can I flush my 2002 axiom Isuzu transmission?


I don't recommend using the flush machine on any vehicle. In the case where you have to flush the transmission then you need a special machine that was running about $160 to $200 to flush a transmission. I recommend removing the drain pan and draining the transmission. After the transmission is drained start the vehicle for about a minute to empty the torque converter. Replace the filter and the pan and fill to the proper level. Test drive the vehicle about 2 blocks to make sure everything gets filled and top off transmission as needed.

How do you change transmission fluid in an 1999 alero olds


This usually depends on what kind of transmission maintenance you wish to do. if you want to do a complete flush you need to take it to a shop and have it flushed professionally. If you would rather do a drain and fill, then this is definitely something that can be done at home. I would also recommend changing the transmission filter and pan gasket. Will only take you a few extra minutes and will save you alot of trouble in the long run. Before you get started, be aware that it is not always recommended to do a complete flush on older model, high mileage vehicles. As the transmission fluid becomes worn, it creates deposits and when you completely flush the system, sometimes the deposits are left behind and will clog up the oil ports and cause you some major headaches. Always do at least 5 drain and fills before you flush the whole system. For a complete pictorial guide on how to perform a drain and fill please go here.

2002 toyota sienna change transmission fluid and


The drain plug is on the bottom of the transmission. Its torqued to 49 nM.
1. Remove tranny oil pan drain plug
2. Drain old fluid (roughly 2-4 quarts)
3. Reinstall drain plug.
4. Measure amount drained in a 99 cent orange juice pitcher from Walmart
5. Pour back the same amount drained using Toyota Type T-IV fluid (available in 1 quart bottles from a Toyota dealer.
6. Start engine and shift slowly through all the gears ending in Park.
7. Check fluid level on the dipstick. Add fluid, if necessary, to bring the level to a point inbetween the COLD and HOT marks on the dipstick.
8. Go for a 20 minute drive and recheck fluid level. Add fluid, if necessary, to bring the level up to,
but not beyond, the upper half of the HOT range on the dipstick.

As in 1973, NO FLUSHING is needed and NO FILTER REPLACEMENT is needed, NO PAN REMOVAL is needed. As, as in 1973 todays Toyotas have a metal mesh filter screen that doesn't ever get clogged except in rare cases of transmission operational abuse, including failure to ever change the fluid for 150,000 miles or more.

Have a 2006 Honda Accord auto. What is the difference between and transmission flush or just topping it with fluid. What are the advantages and disadvantages?


Flush is a total fluid exchange. Topping off is filling the unit when level has become low. Total exchange involves equipment to replenish all fluid. A drain and refill will not get all of the fluid exchanged due to a couple quarts are in the torque converter.
