Along with many other modern units, the is prime example of the challenges we are faced with in the transmission rebuilding industry. Catch fluid in drain pan. On the transmission mount, before you pull anything look at the pump end of the trans, if it is resting on the subframe then you should find out why maybe trans mount. This transmission was used through 2008 in the Mercury Mariner. When I reinstalled my line, a corner of the manifold was pressing against my lower radiator hose. Thanks Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Why don't you first go to your local dealer and find out how much they charge to do the tranny flush? This ensures that all the fluid works through the system. You might need to pop the hard metal line for the tranny out of it's holder and slide it sideways so the hose adapters can clear each other and fit like stock.
This part of the sensor is metal, so we don't want to damage it. Actually, there are several weakpoints, as with anything made by man, and the fact that there are several weak points that can be addressed and when addressed properly, can increase the overall reliability of the transaxle. Along with the added shaft that is part of the gear, the gear assy is probably around 4 inches long. Add two quarts of new fluid to replace the two removed. Just looking for somebody to confirm - I couldn't find this anywhere in a manual or diagram.
This code will be cleared once the engine is turned off. What if I bought my used and I have no idea how the former owner took care of the transaxle? Step 18 Get your funnel out and replace the fluid you took out with 5 quarts of new fluid. I don't know if you're planning a flush, but if so, here's what I did and wrote about a couple of months ago: This is the procedure I used: 1 This can be done on the ground, but I have drive on ramps so I used those. Step 3 Inspect engine block dowel pins. Valves and pistons will begin to stick or leak.
Clean as necessary with sandpaper. Good point on checking the oil pump shaft, it is said that they do twist and if twisted then you may have deeper problems. Leave the engine running and check the fluid level and adjust as needed. I also recommend a 10 oz Lubegard Red be added. Step 12 Grab another beer and admire your handy work on those brackets Step 13 Attach your hoses to the cooler and to the hose adapters and clamp them in place. Pour out the water and dry.
This line carries fluid from the transmission to the cooler? If I had been really cheap and I am I would have only had to replace the broken band and a few gaskets. Attach the compression fittings to the cooler lines and assemble the lines to the manifold. When it reaches the piston or valve, it gets caught between the seal and the bore. I've heard that performing any type of flush can cause more harm then good. Mounting the cool is really based on where you have room to mount it.
It's done wonders on all my cars transmissions. Now you have a 4 quart measure inside the bucket! I did a line pressure check at idle and driving and it is in spec. Step 16 Put the radiator mount back in place with the two bolts. So how can I install a cooler on my car? City driving, under the same conditions were around the 110 - 150 degree range. It makes it too easy to accidentally overfill which could lead to air mixed in fluid, which will lead then to air in hydraulics. I have no place to put a hoist or cherry picker. You can use either line but using the return does two things: it also flushes the cooler and you get to output via the rubber side of the hose which allows easy directing of the gushing fluid into the catch bottle.
The band anchor has a couple of bolts or rivets and it appears that the holes for them create a stress riser and that is where the breakage begins. That will give you a great indication of the pump condition. With no real tools I checked the 'hand' torque for the pump before I dissassembled it and then checked again after I reassembled it. Make sure it's not about to strip out. Use a small triangle file, remove burrs the length of the spline.
Rather than shell out 700 dollars to the shop Im going to replace the band myself. Most transmission repairmen will tell you that this is overkill, but. If you can avoid the temptation to 'rebuild' a trans do this. Also check the condition of the dowel holes in the case. Step 5 Place a pin in the tab in the top of the radiator.
You can prime the oil system by using a drill on the pump driveshaft after pulling converter so trans goes up with oil quick. Step 3 You will probably need to remove some shield right now to access the space behind the bumper. As the valve or piston continues to work normally, it is also cutting into the bore. Also instead of multiple small springs, later model has one super big one to hold down coast and forward piston assy. The how-to pictures won't show up.
Allow the 4 quarts to drain out. I assume this is the return line for fluid returning from the cooler. The tops were bent over so that we could use sheet metal screws to attach them to the metal behind the bumper.
