Any way I changed my Auto Trans
Fluid the other day
jack & 4 jack stands (unless you are ghetto like me, I used 2 sets of ramps, cause I
loaned out mine
) T-30 torx
bit ( for the fill plug on the drain plug) 7/8 wrench
,(for the drain plug), its probably metric but the 7/8 fit good 8mm socket
to remove the pan,and the 2 bolts that hold the filter on. fluid fill adapter
(its nothing more than a tapered pipe that is threaded on one end)
here is where you can buy one, Amazon.com: OTC 6604 Ford Transmission Fluid Fill Adapter: Automotive
and a fluid pump
of some sort.
here is the one I have https://www.amsoil.com/storefront/g2039.aspx?zo=1667299
cost was 11 bucks
a drain pan
of some sort,
and a new filter
if you choose to change it , the WIX I bought looks EXACTLY like the OEM one
, same stampings, weird huh? 1.raise car, be sure its level 2. remove drain plug, drain fluid 3 remove pan, there will probably be some fluid in it still so use caution., and try not to hurt the gasket, you will be re using it... 4 clean pan, pay attention to the magnet 5 change filter if you are going to 6 re install pan, you can install the fluid fill tool into the center of the drain plug. 7 get your and your
ready to fill
pump your fluid in, mine took between 4-5 qts.
when you pull the pump hose off the fill adapter, "allow the fluid to drain when the fluid comes out as a thin stream or a drip the fluid is at the correct level"
that part is per Ford.
oh here is what the trans
looks like with the pan and filter removed
here is how to check the fluid level
the drain plug is a small pipe, if you over fill it the excess will run out the pipe...
