How to bleed the clutch system

First pump the clutch 4-5 times quickly. then siphon out fluid in top container, replace with new fluid of correct class. Slave cylinder at the transmission should have a bleed port or screw. open it and bleed until clean fluid comes out, usually refilling the top 3-4 times. Do not let the top res. go empty! If it still does not disengage the clutch correctly you may need to replace the master clutch cylinder or the slave on the transmission.

Locate transmission filter on 2002 ford escape

The '02 Ford Escape doesn't have a transmission (automatic or manual transaxle) fluid filter or even a fluid pan to house one. The transmission is mounted between the drive axle and intermediate axle, directly below the yellow transmission fluid dipstick. No need to mess with it. Change your trans. fluid at the regular specified mileage. If the fluid on the dipstick is clear, it's good. If reddish or rusty or dark, change asap.

How much transmission fluid does the Chevy Express Van hold? We don't have an owner's manual

Hi, you can download a manual here, but it does not specify the transmission capacity: is the info you need:
4L60-E transmission Service change only - 5 quarts. Total refill - 11.2 quarts.

Total refill would include a tear-down of the transmission and empty the torque converter. If you are just dropping the pan and changing the filter, 5 quarts should do it.

How much transmission fluid is needed in a 1991 chev 1/2 ton pickup . Changing tranmission fluid and filter.

Dear Madam or Sir,

the problem with this the fact, that a large amount of fluid will remain in the torque converter. So knowing how much fluid has to be filled into an empty transmission will not be useful for you, you would overfll your transmission.

Usually you have to measure the amount of oil coming out of the transmission and refill the same amount .

Now you have to refill quart-wise, check the oil level, fill up and so on.

There´s no better solution I can offer you, I´m sorry.

Changing trans fluid & filter wanting to know how much fluid to buy

2.5L engine - 8.4 qts, 3.0L & 3.8L engines – 12.8 qts.

The capacity specifications are if the transmission is totally empty, and here's the clincher for us average types: including the torque converter and radiator tank.

For us average types, even when doing a transmission fluid / filter change, it does not end up with an empty torque converter.

When you pull the transmission pan for the fluid/filter change, you end up with 4-6 quarts on average. The rest is still up inside the torque converter.

Measure what you drained and start with refilling that amount to put back in to return levels back to normal.

Simply use the dipstick to check level and add as is necessary.

NOTE: This is one of the points of distinction to having the transmission "flushed" - where a professional shop is going to hookup specialized equipment to achieve a full fluid exchange, or you do the flush yourself
