Question about 2008 Ford Escape
Pulled two plug's one was a allen the other a 3/4 other drained out alot of fluide! Are both of them for the transmission? and how meny Qr do I need to add?
The larger drain plug was a 22mm or 7/8 most likely.
The smaller inner plug was a 1/8 pipe plug.
You need an adapter Otc 6604, from auto parts store or what works better is an 1/8 pipe thread, hose barb fiiting.
Why? Because you have two choices to add new trans fluid. Mercon V in your case. Either through the 3/8 pipe plug on the upper right side of the tail housing,as you look to the front, or through that small 1/8 fitting in the center of the drain plug. The bad news is, you will need to blow it in from a specially designed container,worth about $120.00. I have one and it works great,if you have an air compressor. You could make your own.
The idea is to fill the trans,warm it up to 180 degrees and any extra fluid will run back down your fill tube,attached to that adapter you put into the center of the drain plug.
If you check out the drain plug you will see a tube on it. that is the hot (180) full level.
I would pull the pan and wash or wipe out any clutch material and clean the magnet. The pan gasket is silicone and reusable. Be carefull not to pry on the shift selector switch removing the pan.
The fill is about four to four and a half qts. Should measure what came out and also compare to the fill, till it runs out the center plug proceedure.
I drain and fill twice,drive a week or two and repeat,if no slipping or other odd drivability issues with the trans
Also, pull the injector fuses and crank over the engine,and pump out the power steering fluid. Remove the smaller return hose at the reservoir and put into a bottle. Flush about a quart through, but try not to run it dry. Should be regular mercon or V, check your manual.
