What Type of Cleaner do I use?

Hey Guys I have a 2000 Ford Taurus SE 3.0 V6.

Changing my trans filter and I need to know if I can use brake parts cleaner to clean out the inside of filter pan or should I use some kind of degreaser/solvent.

I just saw some video on Youtube and the dude cleaned off the magnet and I don't know if he wiped down the inside of the pan or cleaned it out.

Thanks again for feedback. You guys rock. I love when guys like Chipset and 360i answer my post and start ragging on each other or have a legit difference of opinion. It is pure f#@king comedy. Again my best

I'm sure they'll find something wrong with it, but I've used gasoline on a rag to clean the inside of the pan

cool Re: What Type of Cleaner do I use?

Yes, you can use brake cleaner or carb. cleaner to clean the inside of the trans. pan. Just wipe it dry after wiping the dirt out.


DO NOT GET ANY BRAKE CLEANER OR CARBURETOR CLEANER IN YOU WASTE OIL/WASTE TRANSMISSION FLUID!!! HUGE EPA FINE TO WHOEVER DIPOSES OF IT.
