All those pictures...that is worth a thousand words....


Seems like the outcome was good, did you replace that plastic baffle thing?? Is that what they call the filter, looks nothing like a filter. Shocked .

I noticed they had those over on rockauto at a pretty cheap price.

anyway just glad to see it all went well. definitely keep us updated.

plastic baffle thing? I saw only on the filter (#16 photo) the rubber arouund the circle inlet and inside, you may notice a white or cream looking piece which is a filter like matter. Yes, I only got the parts from DIscount, did not have time to wait for mail but if I had the chance, I would have bought it online. The van was bleeding, so I had to go get it fixed as soon as I was able to.

So this picture here shows the magnets??



I think I understand what you mean, sorry about that "plastic baffle" thing, it just looks plastic, I seen now it must be metal.

So did you replace this part??




....and where was it leaking???

The first pic is showing 2 little mags. The little metal on them is normal.
And the 2nd pic is the filter. Should be replaced every 30,000miles.

This is what I thought, so I only had a flush recently so don't need new fluid but would really like to change out the filter I think (do I clean those magnets??

So I would follow the same procedure as this?? and just fill up the transmission via the dipstick?

you can do the bolt if you want but I never have. I just drop the pan. Clean everything (pan, mags, new filter, and gasket area). Put the new filter on and put the pan back on and fill her back up via the dipstick.

BM did what I did CPAP, I put the new filter that came with the kit. Also pay attention to the rubber washer that goes on the round inlet of the aluminum side of filter. According to the service person when I got an estimate, they were going to do a flush for 130 dollars but it does not involve changing the gasket and filter. Total for all was going to be 193 dollars. That is why I decided to do it myself. It only cost me 40 dollars and know if there is another leak, I can fix it myself. I did have to scrape the orage gasket that was on the pan with a plastic scraper like what is used for spackling dry wall, those were hard to get off. I also removed the magnets and clean them witha rag. They had dark stains on tehm from small metallic pieces jsut as you would see when a magnet falls inground or soil.

Ya make sure you scrap off any old gasket cause that will cause leaks.
And ashley, the fluid will go in the pan when you pour it in the dipstick. You can see it in the first set of pics that is posted.
And the pan takes 3 1/2qts.
Good luck with it!!

Thanks for that, but I was wondering how when you drop the pan, instead of the drain bolt, you make sure that the transmission fluid actually goes where you want it to go....ie. into the plastic container I have for draining fluids??

The funny thing about it, is after I removed all the screws that hold the pan, it was adhered to the body. I had a big pan that you can get from walmart. SO I tried prying it slowly with a screwdriver (I should have used a plastic spatula) The pan fell, spilling the ATF. I nearly jumped not to get wet buut I still did. Anyways, I think the very fsrt time your remove the factory seal, make sure you are carefel and if possible have one hand holding the pan. Very Happy

Naaa dont worry about it ashley. You are thinking way to much into it.lol
Very Happy
Just take off one side set of bolts and the pan will tilt and pour some ATF into a oil pan. Then take the other bolts off and pour the rest of the ATF in the pan like you are pouring water from one kitchen bowl to another bowl. Its super super easy. And fun. You will be fine.
And the pan holds 4 1/2qts. I dont know how much you will get out of the drain bolt cause I have never done that.
