  1. NOTE: Use transmission fluid specified for this transmission. Do not use any supplemental transmission fluid additives or cleaning agents. The use of these products could cause internal transmission components to fail, which will affect the operation of the transmission.

    The transmission cooling system (cooler and lines) MUST be flushed every time the transmission is overhauled or replaced in order to minimize the likelihood of repeat repairs. It is mandatory that proper equipment and procedures be followed when flushing coolers/lines. The flushing equipment used MUST:
    • maintain fluid at 60°C (140°F) or above,
    • pulsate fluid during cleaning,
    • have a GPM flow meter,
    • have twin magnetic filters,
    • and have air purge capability before and after flushing.
  1. If equipment meeting the specifications above is not available, the transmission fluid cooler(s) should be replaced and the lines cleaned by hand.
  1. Check and top off fluid level of the transmission cooling system heated flusher with transmission fluid.
