To change the transmission fluid make sure you have purchased: 1. filter with the o-ring 2. MOPAR ATF + 3 Type 7176, p/n 05010124AA fluid (I believe it took 6 quarts?) You are not changing the torque converter fluid so there will not be 12 quarts needed.). 3. Pan gasket. You should receive the new neoprene reusable pan gasket. This is because the recommendation is to change the transmission fluid every 25,000 miles. 4. There is a fluid additive to prevent foaming? Use it.


Raise the vehicle on a hoist. Remove the pan bolts. Remove the old gasket material with a plastic scraper. There could be metal transfer if you use a metal scraper. Clean the pan carefully. Clean the magnet that sits in the pan as it collects the minute metal shavings. If you see an excess of larger particles, you really should have the transmission inspected at a shop. Replace the filter carefully looking at its arrangement before removing. It took a second look to install a new filter because I did not watch how it was situated before removing. Use a thin coat of transmission fluid on the new pan gasket. Orient reusable gasket properly with bolt holes and assemble oil pan and gasket to transmission case. Tighten oil pan bolts to 19 Nm (165 in lbs.). CAUTION: DO NOT OVERFILL TRANSAXLE. DO NOT ADD OIL IF LEVEL IS BETWEEN: LOWER HOLES FOR WARM OIL (100?F). UPPER HOLES FOR HOT OIL (180?F.).

    Ok, the mopar 3 is for a different year then as I don't remember your
    year.I don't remember offhand the foam additive, but a place that sells
    the fluid should be able to tell you exactly what it is, just go to a
    NAPA, AutoZone, Checker or any other specialty car part store.

Transmission oil in the radiator


If the radiator has tranny fluid mixed in with the coolant, then you have an internal tranny cooler leak. At the one side of the tranny, in the saddle tank, there is a tube. This tube allows hot tranny fluid to enter the rad and be cooled before returning to the transmission. It should be totally isolated and submerged in the coolant tank. Occasionally they can leak, and the two fluids will mix. You will need a new rad to repair the problem. It would also be recommended to have the tranny fluid and the coolant flushed after wards. Oil of any kind does not mix well with coolant, and could cause future damage to the tranny more so than the engine.

Looking to flush my radiator and cant find the drain plug


The drain plug is generally near the left hand side of the car. If you can't find it, you could always remove the lower radiator hose. It will send a lot of coolant out in a hurry, but you'd still be able to flush it safely that way. I hope this helps

Describe your how do i replace 1993 jeep Cherokee radiator


Start steps when vehicle is cold. Drain the rad fluid - located passenger side lower bottom of the rad. When draining remove the rad cap (keep your bucket there for complete job). After empty, the tranny lines must be removed, a tool is available for this - from Parts Source or UAP. They join at the bottom of the rad, after removing (don't break the clips or lose them) keep the lines upright to avoid draining the tranny fluid. Undo the 2 bolts holding the fan shroud, slowly and gently push the shroud towards the motor (do not bend the tranny lines attached to the rad). Then lift up and move to the motor. Undo the clamps holding both rad hoses, drain the bottom hose into the bucket. Undo the 8 screws or bolts (10mm ??) holding the top plate that keeps the rad stationary - the hood latch is connected to it, move it towards the front of the vehicle. Pretend you are dismantling a bomb, one wrong move and you will be replacing more than a rad. Lift the rad straight up, watching everything in the way. With the rad on the ground with the tranny lines pointing upright, spray WD40 on the tranny lines and undo them (inspect for any holes). Be smooth when you do it or you will be buying new ones. Start with last step first when you install new rad.

How do you install an external transmission cooler on a 2005 Nissan Pathfinder?


  • you need to remove the lower front skid plate, to acsess and remove one of the trans cooler lines that go into the bottom of radiator.
  • it does not matter which one.
  • there will be about a quarter cup of fluid that will leak out. No big deal just have a drain pan handy to catch the mess.
  • The external cooler hoses gets hooked up, one to the radiator and the other to the line that was unhooked from the radiator.
  • The cooler gets mounted up against the condenser, so you may have to remove the grill so you can slip the cooler behind it in a convenient location.
  • Most coolers come with fasteners that are fairly easy to use.They are nylon stakes that are like a stiff nylon tyrap with a flat locking retainer.that hold the cooler against the condensor and/or radiator
  • All you do is push them through the cooler, then condenser, and/or radiator fins, and click on the retainer..
  • Dont forget to messure and replace the fluid that leaked out.
  • Always use new clean stuff.
I hope this helps,
If it does, dont forget to leave us your feedback.
Thanks.

Antifreeze in transmission,


You could possibly have a internal crack in the radiator, this is not un herd of because the transmission cooler is the side tank of the radiator, they are separated by a internal metal divider and its possible for the radiator to crack forcing antifreeze into the transmission cooler section of the radiator, because of the timing of this incident i would not stray from human error as a major possibility, but its not impossible for this to happen on its own and i have seen it before, its also possible they did not change the fluid in the flush machine from a previous job (that had water in the fluid) i would recheck the tranny fluid now and make sure its not watered down and overfilled, also be sure your coolant is not low, if these check out, then your shop owes you a brand new transmission and thats great because they aren't the best ones on the market and have a high failure rate anyway, best of luck to you and please rate this solution -Jeff

How do i reverse flush fiesta radiator


(With the engine cold) remove the radiator cap

First drain the coolant out of the radiator in a container, either from a drain on the bottom of the rad, or by slowly removing the bottom rad hose.

Block, or pinch the top radiator hose

First, flush from the top... pour water into the rad cap hole for a while and let it come out the bottom hose.

Then, run water from the bottom, and let it run out of the open cap.

Then flush it from the top again.

This should flush the rad, unless it is clogged pretty solid.

We have a 1991 ford 350 and it is overheating


Most likely it's a stuck / faulty thermostat.

The two brass fittings are for the automatic transmission fluid cooler.

Some models simply don't use a drain valve.
