So you are ready to do some tranny work?
A few tips perhaps?
- Drain the ATF oil
- Get ready for a splash of the remaining oil when you lower the oil pan (precautions?)
- Check the oil pan bottom for anything that looks suspicious
- Have a new seal ring for the plug's), oil pan seal and filter on standby
- Carefully clean everything
- Filling up can be difficult. Several options. A hand-pump and hose is easiest, or even one that attaches to the filler connection (coupler at the side)
- Filling: a poor man solution is a piece of new garden hose, stick it in the reservoir, tape it to the side of the car and use a funnel. Takes time but works ok.
- Do not over tighten the oil pan bolts. 8Nm is like nothing.
- Fill up, run the engine, change gears, fill up again…. Repeat till the tranny is at the 20c mark
- Drive the car and when hot check the oil level in the tranny again.
- Make sure the lid on the reservoir seals nicely.
- Ps: it is easier to add oil than to drain oil ?
