Its my understanding that you remove the skid plate, crack open the tranny pan and let the fluid drain, open all the way, clean pan, change filter, change gasket, replace pan, replace skid plate, and fill tranny back up with oil. dropping the pan will only drain about 4 quarts of oil so be sure not to overfill.
Anything Im missing? I plan on doing that this weekend.
Are there any torque specs on these bolts or am I just being rediculous?
RTV vs Rubber Gasket?
2 things, granted they weren't for a jeep, but take them with a grain of salt.
1) When I changed the fluid on a for taurus everything I found said 6 quarts would come out. I put in almost 9 to get it back to the full mark on the dipstick.
2) tighten the bolts like you would on a tire. do one snug, then the opposite one, then one about a quarter of the way around and its opposite one. once they are all snug take a torque wrench and go all the way around adjusting them to the proper speck. It was 6-8ft-lbs for the car I was working on.
