You will need a floor jack and two jack stands. Raise the vehicle high enough to give you plenty of working room. Place the jac sstands uner the frame rails on each side of the vehicle and lower the floor jack to let the vehicle rfest on the jack stands. Place a large drain pan ujnder the transmission and rmove the front an side mounting bolts. Loosen, but do not remove the rear mounting bolts. Pry the front of the transmission pan loose and pull it down to allow the fluid to drain into the drain pan. The drain pan should be large enough to hold at least 5 quarts of fluid. Now remove the remaining bolts, and the pan and gasket.Clean all traces of gasket and sealant from the mating surface of the transmission. Drain the remaining fluid from he trans.pan and clean with solvent. Remove any gasket material or sealant from he gssket mounting surface. Remove the old filter from the transmission. If the seal didn't come out with the filter, remove it from the transmission . The new seal can be driven into place with an appropriate size socket. Make sure it goes in square.Install the new filter.Install the new gasket on the pan and install the pan on the transmission. Tighten the bolts a little at a time to make sure the pan goes on straight. Don't over tighten the bolts or it will distort the pan and cause a leak. Lower the vehicle. Add 3 1/2 quarts of transmission fluid. See the owners manual for the correct fluid. If you put the wrong fluid in, the transmission will malfunction. Start the engine with the transmission in park and fast idle it but do not rev it up. Move the gear shift lever through the gears and back to park. Check the fluid level on the dipstick. It should reach the cold mark. Check for leaks. Your ready to drive. Keep a close eye on the fluid level for the first few trips and add a little fluid as necessary.

You will need to buy a "TRANSMISSION FILTER KIT," which will include a new transmission filter, uptake gasket, and pan gasket for your transmission. (They run about $20 or less on eBay.) Once you have done that, you will need to hoist the vehicle, and CAREFULLY remove the transmission pan by loosening one bolt a little at a time without removing them, and breaking the old gasket free (hopefully without making too much of a mess of transmission fluid). About half of the transmission fluid (about a gallon and a half) will be in the pan (the rest in the torque converter). It is usually sufficient to replace just the amount of oil in the pan (otherwise you need to remove the torque converter inspection plug on the bell housing and crank the engine to expel the seal, draining the other half of the fluid, then replace the bell housing seal).
Once you have drained away the transmission fluid in the pan, CLEAN THE PAN THOROUGHLY WITH A SHOP TOWEL, and carefully remove the bolts that secure the filter to the transmission valve body. (As I recall it is four 10mm bolts... but not sure on your year model).
Remove the filter, and remove any remnants of gasket on the uptake chamber between the filter and the valve body. MAKE SURE YOU REPLACE THE SMALL GASKET AT THE TOP OF THE FILTER WITH A NEW ONE, OTHERWISE THE TRANSMISSION WILL SLIP DURING THE 1-2 SHIFT DUE TO AIR BEING SUCKED-IN (been there).
Check for correct torque specifications for the filter mounting bolts before tightening them and DO NOT OVER-TIGHTEN THE RETAINING BOLTS.
Once you have replaced the filter, and your pan is clean, scrape away all remnants of gasket material from the mounting surfaces, and position the new filter. (This is easier if you use a tiny amount of silicone RTV to hold the gasket in place and keep it aligned with the pan mounting holes).
Replace the pan, tighten the bolts to spec, re-fill the transmission with the appropriate amount of NEW ATF, then test.

I know this may sound stupid...but can't find the transmission filter. Was driving car and kept losing gears (automatic). Got it home, fluid seems fine. Could it just be a plugged filter?


Sure but the filter is inside the transmission. ussally the pan on the bottom of the transmission needs to be removed and and filter is connected to the transmission inside this cover on the lowest point. If your not a regular mechanic ( work on cars for a living, day in and out) you should hire this work done by someone who does.

Gear selection is slow


Check your tranmission fluid level, if its low it can cause your transmission to shift slower, if its drastically low your transmission will slip in and out of gears or free rev (act like its in neutral) under acceleration or when shifting to a higher gear. If your fluid level is good, then you need to change your transmission filter. If your not mechanically inclined, take your vehicle to a shop and have them replace your filter for you, any repairs or maitnance envolving your transmission can easily go bad and potentially destroy your transmission if you do something wrong.

1. Buy new filter & transmission pan gasket

2. Raise vehicle, block tires, and use jackstands (never rely on any type of jack to hold the vehicle up.) and get a container or drain pan to catch the old transmission fluid.

3. Put drain pan or container under your transmission pan, start loosinging the bolts that hold the pan to the transmission. If you loosen the bolts alittle at a time you should be able to minimize spilling fluid everwhere and be able to catch it in your drain pan easier. (if your transmission has a drain plug remove it before loosening the pan bolts, this is not very common though and if you have a drain plug your lucky) once the majority of the fluid has drained from loosening the plugs, continue to loosen bolts so you drop the pan easily cause its gonna be full of fluid (unless you have the drain plug, if you do the pan should be virtually empty and you can remove it fully without alot of mess).

4. Locate the bolts that hold your filter to the transmission, be sure to only remove the bolts that hold the filter. Use the new filter for a visual aid so you can be 100% sure your only removing the filter. (The filter is bolted to a metal cover plate that houses the transmission clutch assemblies, spring valve assemblies, and floating shutter pins and they all operate under hydraulic pressure). Once the bolts are out of the old filter you should be able to slide the goose neck of the filter out of the filter port (again use the new filter for a visual aid) The goose neck should have a rubber o-ring type seal (or equivilent) make sure its on the old filter when you pull it, If its not then gently feel in the port and make sure the seal isnt sticking inside the port.


****** If you were to remove the cover plate thinking it was the filter, the hydraulic slide valves would move and you could seriously damage your transmission turning a $30.00 problem into a 1500.00 problem. I speak from experiance, so please use the new filter for a visual, I can't stress it enough*

5. Clean the pan's gasket area maticuliously, removing all of the old gasket, do the same to the transmission. Prep the pan side of your new gasket (I like using permatex gasket sealer) and install it to your transmission pad. (you can do this before you clean the transmission's gasket area so the permatex has time to adhear to the pan while you clean the gasket area on the transmission)

6. Using transmission fluid lube up the new filter's o-ring and slide it into the filter port. line up the bolt holes and start puting the filter bolts back in, tightening them evenly much like you would do to lug nuts if you had to change a tire.

7. Now get your pan and prep the other side of the pan gasket (gasket should be well tacky and sticking to the pan at this point) once the gasket is prep'd line the pan up with the transmission and begin installing the pan bolts tighten them the same way you did the filter bolts,

**Note**FWD** Depending on your vehicle's make/model, you may have to drop one of the control arms to remove the pan.

**Note**RWD** Depending on your vehicle's make/model, you may have to remove the cross member to remove the pan -or- drop the drive shaft, remove the bell housing bolts (bolts through transmission into engine block) remove the starter, and flywheel cover remove the bolts that connect your torq converter to your flywheel and slide the transmission back from the motor far enough so the transmission pan is no longer under the cross member.

GOOD LUCK I HOPE MY POST HELPS YOU!

Does my 2003 mitsubishi galant have a transmission filter if so where is it located


All automatic transmissions have a filter, which is located inside the transmission pan. To replace filter, you will need to remove the transmission pan. Before replacing pan be sure to remove any old gasket that may still be present on pan and the mount on transmission. Refill with proper type and amount of fluid...DO NOT OVERFILL
