Does any one know a procedure to do it at home. I dont have a Tranny cooler. I have heard of a way to disconnect some hoese and be able to drain and refeil the entire tranny
Gaget posted this on the old forum last year-
You don't need a write up. It is pretty simple.
First you will need a good size bucket. I find that the 5 gal pail that Fresh Scoop cat little comes in is the very best. I have tested all different kinds of cat little buckets, but this one is the best.
Next, drain the pan. Refil with fresh fluid. Then remove the return hose that leaves the radiator and goes back to the trans and put that hose in the cat little bucket.
Then start the engine. ATF should now be flowing out the hose into the bucket. Watch this stream and when it starts to peter out shut the engine off and refil the pan. Keep repeating this until you have run about 5 gals of ATF through the tranny.
Reconnect the hose, top off the pan and you are done.
This home flushing proceedure is the very same thing as the cooler line flush machine that you see detailed on my website.
Now if you want to improve on this home flushing proceedure, get a can of BG ATF Quick Clean and put that in the tranny and drive it around easily for 20-30 minutes before you start the flush. Of course replacing the tranny filter should be done while you are still under warranty. This will give you the chance to look in the pan for any loose parts that would indicate a pending tranny failure.
Remember, about the proper brand of cat little bucket....
