    Hello never heard of that, as long as you change your trans oil on a recommended regular intervals i would not worry about some sort of flush to use in your trans.

You can flush it out with ordinary kerosene. No need to spend lots of money.

How do i flush and change transmisson fluid on 2005 f-150

Make sure you have a BIG pan,drop the trans pan (messy job, start at the front and go around, finally leaving a couple of bolts in front in so the back drops down and drains from there). pull the trans filter off the bottom of the trans-make sure the o-ring comes off with the filter. clean the magnet a the bottom of the pan, reinstall it and the filter after you use lint-free rags to clean the bottom of the trans (valve body). You can usually just reinstall the pan with the original gasket, it is far superior to the junk they give you when you buy a kit with a filter (about $30 for the kit) and gasket. Dont over tighten the bolts, work in a cris-cross pattern until they all snug, then go 1/4 turn. Install a long funnel into the dipstick tube and fill it with about 10-11 quarts of Mercon 5-start it up, and if necessary, you may end up adding 1 or 2 more quarts to get it to levle.

How do you go about changing the trans fluid on a 2005 chevy impala

First make sure you have the proper amount of Transmission fluid to replace what you drain as well as a new transmission filter and gasket. (they usually come in a kit together. The filter & gasket). Make sure the transmission fluid is warm before using jack stands, drive on ramps or a floor jack with jack stands. If there's a transmission drain plug, open it and allow the transmission fluid to drain into a catch pan. If there's not a drain plug, remove the transmission pan bolts, leaving the 4 corner bolts in place until the end. Then slowly loosen two of the bolts at the same end to allow the transmission pan to tilt as well as drain the fluid that way. As the transmission fluid drains, start removing the other two pan bolts to allow more of a tilt until you can place your hand on the pan and remove the remaining bolts, thus removing the pan to be cleaned out. You will normally find a magnet in the bottom of the pan which needs to be cleaned and re-installed. The transmission filter is attached to the "valve body" ,m and when removing that, be aware that more transmission fluid will drain out. To clean a transmission pan, I use either CRC Brake-Kleen or gasoline. Remove all of the pan gasket, install the new filter and replace the transmission pan...don't forget to place the magnet in it and pull your transmission dipstick out of the tube. It has a "vent to atmosphere" so the Brake-Kleen is wonderful for that. If not cleaned, it allows internal pressures to build up inside of the transmission and you could blow transmission seals. Refill with fluid and with your foot on the brake, start it up and allow it to go into ALL the gear ranges, eg. Park, Reverse, Neutral, Drive 2nd and low and then back up to allow the valve body to replace the fluid lost when the filter was changed. Road test and re-check the Transmission fluid Hot on a level surface and add as needed.
A Haynes Manual for your particular vehicle would help with the amount of fluid you will need as well as the tightening pattern of the pan. It also has pictures of what you're going to see before you launch into this task.

Hope this Helps,

Need to service trans on my 05 lancer can you flush trans

On automatic transmission that has over 100,000 miles,you should not flash it. DO NOT got to a shop that use re-circulate machine to flush out the transmission.

Base on the 2005 production year,you should have only 60,000 on the transmission.

The correct method is to purchase the transmission filter,pan gasket kit + transmission fluid and a trans line cleaning fluid.


Get the complete kit from your auto parts supply store and do the drain,cooler flush and filter change.

Recycle your old transmission fluid at your part store or recycling center.

2005 toyota corolla s transmission fluid

The cleaning is by flushing. DO NOT LET THEM FLUSH YOUR TRANNY! It will do nothing but damage the tranny.

For as fluid. the 3.2 quarts is if you dont drain the torque converter. If you drain the converter then it will take about 14 to 16 quarts.

The reason i say do not let them flush the tranny is because they force the fluid backwards through the system and that will damage it. Also if the tranny is almost on its last "leg" and you may not know it. Then all that will do is speed the process up.

There is a solenoid that pulls a little pin back when the brake is depressed, they get gummed up and cause your type of problem, clean and lube the pin.

Flush engine - transmission

Engine & Transmission Flush

You might have been told, by your dealer or mechanic that your engine oil or transmission fluid are very dirty, & an engine or transmission flush, is recommended. The flush will clean the engine or transmission, & those will last longer. This is only part true a clean engine or transmission will last longer, but I'm not sure that flushing them is the best way to clean them.

What Is An Engine Or Transmission Flush?

Flushing is forcing high pressure of fluid against the normal flow of the fluid. In simple words if the normal flow is left to right, the flush would force the fluid right to left.

This is done by connecting a machine that will force special solvents back through the engine and transmission. The idea is that by forcing cleaning solvents backwards through the system, it will get all the junk and garbage that has formed over time and "flush" it out of the system. In theory this sounds very good, but in practice, it can be dangerous.

The Dangers of Flushing your Engine or Transmission

Flush machines force high pressure cleaning solvents back through the engine and transmission and clean out some of the accumulated junk that has formed, so far all is good. Now the problems start, engines have small passages and galleries through which oil or automatic transmission fluid flow and there are one-way valves that keep the fluids from backtracking for whatever reason.

By using an aggressive cleaning procedure like flushing, large chunks of accumulated sludge are broken off and forced backwards through these galleries and valves and, more often than not, lodge tightly and block them. This cuts off the normal flow of the fluid and causes lack of lubrication in an engine and abnormal or no shifting in a transmission. The results are expensive repairs, or more often, engine or transmission replacement.

That's my knowledge about the subject, hope it was helpful,
