I think i amdue for a transmission servicing as I have 60,000 KMS top top the odometer.One human is telling me that a fluid and filter readjust is adequate even despite on one fifty percent of the liquid is yes, really changedAnother human being is informing me the a complete flush and fluid readjust should be done even though the filter is not changed.Which is the proper method in you opinionThanksWayne Bohnetwayne.bohnet

Changed in ~ 110,000 miles; I would certainly recommend much sooner. I was having actually shuddering issues and also hard shifting. I used the oil dipstick to compare the level on my 62te (2010 T&C) and it worked great. Drained the 5.5 quarts (by remove the pan), replaced the filter ($17.00 Autozone), cleaned the pan and also magnet in the bottom that the pan, installed brand-new gasket (included with filter purchase) and put in 5.5 quarts of Castrol ATF + 4. The complete capacity ~ above the 62te is 9 quarts, so ns still had 3.5 quarts that the old fluid to gain out of the system. I did this by disconnecting the transmission (return) cooling line that"s on top of the transmission. It"s the one closest to engine and also under the exhaust pipe (the one with the black cap in the photo, not the white cap). It"s a tiny bit of a an obstacle due come the limit space. To disconnect the line, eliminate the plastic cap by pulling directly up. On slide the platic lid up the pipe to acquire it the end of her way. Now there is a little spring clip in a groove near the peak of the fitting. I offered a very tiny screw driver to remove the clip. Do NOT loosened THE CLIP. Ar a huge rag roughly the installation to capture the spring clip. As soon as the sping clip is off, basic pull straight up ~ above the tube. As soon as tube is the end of the fitting, replace the feather clip in the groove that the fitting. The tube has a taper, so once the time pertains to insert it back into the fitting, you merely push down on the tube until it clicks into place. Over there is one o-ring within the fitting the sals against the exterior diameter the the tube. Ok, next I connected a flexible 3/8 inside diameter hose buy forcing it end the disconnected transmission line. I provided 4 feet of 3/8 fuel line because it"s what I had actually available. I used a 1 gallon clear jug and also put the 3/8 hose right into it. This gallon jug will be supplied to collect the continuing to be 3.5 gallons the old fluid. I had actually my wife begin the van and also immediately the old fluid started filling the 1 gallon jug. When the jug to be filling, ns was simultaneously pouring the new 3.5 quarts of liquid into the to fill tube. Once the fluid coming out of the water tap turned a bright red (same shade a the new fliud) ns told my mam to rotate off the van. I confirm the level again with the oil dipstick and also it to be the very same as when I started.

Ns disconnected the 3/8 water tap from the tube, driven the tube ago into the height of the transmission, pushed the plastic cap earlier down end the fitting and replaced the lid to the filler tube. Transmission shifts an excellent and does not shudder.
