Nope you cannot actually clean without surgery, but the real question is how did water get in the trans? Radiator leak is one possibility, but find it and resolve.

    Where is the transmission drain plug on 97 mitsubishi mirage?

    If you are referring to an automatic transmission, most manufacturers no longer put a drain plug on them. This is to prevent removal of the wrong plug when changing the engine oil. Also, since manufacturers recommend changing the transmission filter when the transmission oil is changed, having to remove the pan to drain the oil is incentive to replace the filter at the same time.

    Often change transmission fluid

    Hi Costas, Very good idea and often overlooked by too many. Its good to change the fluid once or tice a year depending on the number of miles driven, but even if the vehicle remains parked for the year, it needs replacing. Drain the fluid and drop the oil pan,and remove and replace the internal oil filter. (Some Mitsubishi vehicles have external oil filters fitted making the job easier. Replace it and the drain plug and then refill. Check the level with the engine running at idle speed and after getting in with park brake engaged and pressing the foot brake and changing through each gear, pausing between each change (including reverse) and return to N. Check oil level on dip stick. Regards John

    Where is the transmission filter on 2003 mitsubishi outlander

    It is inside the transmission, you have to get under the car, drop the oil , if it has a plug, or drop the pan, oil will leak for days, 2 or 3 bolts hold the filter in place, take out the plastic plug if you find one floating around in the pan, and put it all back together.

    no drain plug, no car or truck has had a drain plug for decades, reason? they want the filter changed with the fluid, so they make you pull the trans pan to drain the fluid, one very messy job.
