With the recent posts about transmission problems, I thought I would post a "How To".
Most of you already know how to do this, but read on, there's a new trick, or two, to learn.
Now class, get out your Owners Manual and turn to page 10.
Before you back out the drain plug, grab your cordless drill and a step-bit and drill a 3/4" hole in the belly pan. Drill right below the drain plug. This helps to get the lube out of the car's belly pan. Another way is to remove the screws holding the belly pan and pull it down, in the back. Place a block of wood, between the frame and the pan, to hold it. Now the pan is sloping down and the lube can drain out. Put you catch pan under this.
This is also a good time, to clean out the crap, that collects under the trans.
Remove the drain pug. There's a small "O" ring on the plug. If it's missing or messed up, replace it. Hopefully, 10oz of lube came out.
Remove the top filler pug. It's behind the break disk. Check its o-ring too.
Don't get lube on the break disk!
If you feel like you need to flush out the transmission, Thin, 5w-30 oil works great.
After the trans is finished draining, put the drain plug back in. Don't crank down hard on this. It will mess up the O-ring.
Now your ready to put new lube in. The book calls out 10oz of 80w-90 lube. Due to the high heat of summer, I use 90w-140 Mobil1. What ever brand you choose, I would recommend a synthetic.
By now, you've noticed, it's kinda tough to get a lube bottle, even close to the filler plug. You can put a small piece of fuel line, on the bottle tip. But a better way is to use a pump oil can. I bought mine at a farm supply store. If you can't find one, PM me or Mike at RRR.
Measure 10 to 12 onces of lube into the pump can and start pumping. When the can is empty, the trans is full. easy.
Clean up all the spilled lube off the car, with break cleaner. and put the belly pan back on.
