Fluids

Hey guys!

So I've been slowly but surely making the rounds on the fluids.

So far I've got the diff's knocked out via an awesome write up on 4x4explor.

Flushed the radiator by disconnecting the coolant hose and filling with new fluid.

Now I'm looking to do the power steering; threads here say turkey baster method? Sounds weird.

And now I need to do the transfer case, brake lines and transmission. All of the above I haven't the slightest and haven't found a good write up here.

Is any of this valid for brakes?

Tranny will have a bolt on the very bottom to drain. AND, when you fill back up the transmission with fluid, make sure you fill from the plug on the PASSENGER side of it. There's a plug on the driver side of the tranny that looks the same but will spit a bunch of springs out at you. T-case drain is the on the back side where the driveshaft comes out and towards the bottom horizon of it. Fill plug is pretty much right above it. Both are just like doing the diffs, you fill up until it begins slowly seeping out of the fill hole that you're using.

If he has a manual transmission, the fill plug is on the DRIVERS side.

Agree. Not sure there is anything on passenger side. Like the shooting spring idea though. Pew pew! Edit there are a billion brake bleeding articles you can google. Written better that I can. They are all the same for the most part. I'm sure some could be searched here on the forum as well. Turkey baster is legit.

Awesome thanks for that! And am I supposed to do the drain and fill in batches until it's all running clear as to not make any debris move around to one area/flush sediment to the gears

Note well: before you pull the drain plug on your tranny, pull the FILL plug FIRST!

So glad I did that... ;-)

Just one drain should be plenty unless there's a bunch of gunk in there, which there probably won't!
