Where is the tranmission filter on 04 lancer es

Where is the transmission filter on 04 lancer es?
also the cover on the side of the drain plug i pulled it off thinking the filter was in there but it was a big gear and now i cant get the cover back on all the way it leaves like an half inch gap, but the cover was a bit tuff to get off i dont see why it wont go on all the way.i started to put some of the bolts in and forcing the cover on and it was working but i dont want to mess anything up if it should slide on with no probs please help!
all this just trying t find the transmission filter.
Also i pulled off what appeared to be the oil pan on the front of the trans under the battery and there was nothing in there but electronics.

well first! maybe it's time to remind you were created and given in life by a GOD, TRY TO BEGIN TO MAKE CONTACT WITH HIM, know that he is THE ONE who decides if you live another day, it was not yourself did you? Remind it! Make contact with him everyday anyhow. This way maybe he gets glad about and give us more money for our needings. The thing about the gas how many cylinders is your car? and almost for shure it is some transmission detail. That the LordGOD bless you my brother.

SOURCE: where do i put the transmission fluid on a 2002

you can't put the transmission fluid in yourself on an auto or manual transmission for a 2002 lancer es. It has to be injected into the transmission through a nipple that is on the transmission.

SOURCE: To Change 2004 Mitsubishi Endeavor Transmission filter

Yes you will need a gasket and if you go to the parts store they will sell you what you need. Just tell them what you have and they will give you the filter and gasket. I am not real sure on this year if there is a bolt holding the filter in place and I have looked in all my books on this one but can't seem to find out. If there is a bolt there will only be one more then likely but i really dont think you have a bolt. Just take the pan down and see if you can gently pull down the filter. Most of the time they are just up there with a O-Ring to hold them in.

In M/T of Mitsubishi Lancer Model 2001/2002 where is the fluid filter? Is there a M/T fluid filter for these models?

If you are talking about a Manual Transmission/transaxle then there is no filter. Because a manual trans is not pressure lubercated there is no need for one. What you will find is a fill and drain plugs they will most likely have a magnet on the end to catch metal fragments. All that needs to be done is to drain the fluid, clean off the plugs and refill the trans with clean fluid until it is at the bottom of the drain plug( weeping out of the hole is where most mechainic fill it to) and finally to tight the plugs.

I plan on changing my transmission fluid & wanted to find a diagram showing where the tranmission oil filler bolt is located.

Most vehicles do not have a transmission drain plug. You must remove the bottom pan from your transmission to drain the fluid and change the filter. Remember to replace the pan gasket when you do this, if a new gasket doesn't come with your new filter.

How do i check the transmission fluid on my 04 lancer manual?

I gather you are saying you have a manual trans? Okay! you have a plug somewhere on the transmission about half way fron the bottom to the top.It could be square six sided or a large inverted plug of the same. Remove this plug stick your finger in the hole, you should get some fluid on your finger if it is full.

Where's transmission filter located?

Filter is not in the pan- my wife has an '03 Tribute with the 3.0, and trust me, it's not under the pan. From everything I have read, it's inside the tranny someplace and not accessible without tearing the thing out and down.

And, yes there is a drain plug on the side/bottom of the tranny case- you can use a 3/8" ratchet w/o a socket on it to loosen/tighten.
