How do i completely drain fluid in torque converter – car talk – nigeria m gasol nba

####

domack99: Am Planning to change my MDX ATF and am just wondering if the entire fluid in the trans system can be drained by just opening the drain nut under. A friend change his ATF recently and all we did was to remove the drain nut and left it for about one and half hour to drain. We got a whole four gallon paint bucket filled up and some drain to a bigger bowl that could fill more than a litre bottle. The amount of old fluid drained would be up to six litre plus. We replaced with five litres of AFT, though it gauge to the desire level when measure with the deep stick but what i could deduce is that more was taken out of the tranny than replaced

My concern is, is it possible to have drained the content of the torque converter using this straight method because from what i learn, the SUV take five litres of ATF or still need special equipment to flush out the system to get to the torque converter.You cant drain the whole Oil out,unless you get it to a garage,just a quick question, how do you refill it, from the top or under?

You could drain the fluid in torque converter but if your car mileage is above 80k, i will advice you just do normal drain, filter change, and refill. Flushing or power flushing high mileage trannys sometimes results to the tranny malfuctioning after the flush especially if the tranny atf has not been changed at anytime. After the normal drain, filter change, and refilling you have done, locate the hose outlet line taking atf from the tranny to the radiator cooler line, remove the clamps on the hose. Set a catch bowl underneath the car at the point of the hose, have someone to start the car, unplug the hose and put the gear in drive, old/dirty atf will start pumping out through the hose. Be very observant, as the dirty atf comes out you will notice it becomes cleaner gradually until you observe a more clean and translucent atf coming out then shut the engine and plug the hose back with the clamps attached properly and gauge the tranny atf. You could get the old/dirty atf (about a litre) trapped in the torque converter out through this method.

Manufacturer recommend 20,000 mile interval for same reason.Honda doesnot require filter you wil have to pull the transmission apart to change it more like a strainer. Re: How Do I Completely Drain Fluid In Torque Converter? by Macmilla( m): 6:34am On Oct 01, 2014
