I suggest drilling a hole in the thing and tapping it for a plug. I like to do it in the cover instead of the housing, but the housing is lower. I do that because I fear hitting something and breaking the plug.
I use a magnetic heater to warm the housing and then use a large battery tester (syringe, turkey baster) to draw the fluid out through the fill hole. This proceedure works well and you don't have to pull the cover.
I just popped the cover, cleaned it out and the housing from all the old silicon and sealed it back up with RTV Blue. Then I used Valvoline 80w-90 and the pump that goes with the quart bottle. Thanks everyone, there are some great ideas here!
Maybe I'm just dreaming here, but that's why I'm asking. I've been driving my dad's '99 Explorer for the last few days and I really love it, specifically the tranny. The five-speed auto does a great job of keeping the SOHC 4.0L V6 in it's powerband, and it is sweet to get on it and a shift only...
I was wondering who uses overdrive (O/D) when driving around town (speeds under 55). I am always flipping the O/D button depending where I am driving. Does it cause wear to the trans. if the O/D is disabled for extended times. At constant highway speeds I always enable the O/D.
When accelerating then letting off the accelerate Im getting a slight clunking from the rear of my car, it's mostly when the car is cold, sounds like something is knocking back and forth in the trunk area, haven't got a chance to get her on a lift yet. Not sure if this is a problem people run...
Hi there folks... :smile2:
I finally finished bolting the M5R2 to the 4.6 on my 94 TBird... :xpcool:
Yes (!!!) ... I knew all along that it wouldn't be as easy as the other manual options out there, but I love challenges and it can definitely be done if you are bent on the idea like I was...
