Re: Transmission fluid change in 95 Windstar ? ? ? ? ? ? ?

Ok, What about this?
Since I have an add on cooler in front of the radiator , Could I put a
large container full of new fluid (Like 20 QT) and let it run into the
input line throught the X-mission and let it run out of the
transmission output line?

That way when 12 or so quarts come out I know it is full of new fluid.

I know I'm strange.

no, because the 'transmission input line' goes to lube; there is no
'suction' on it

I do NOT endorse the following, but you could overfill it about 4 quarts,
start it and let it pump a gallon out, and repeat that about 2 or three
times

DO NOT LET IT run low to where the pump sucks air

Re: Transmission fluid change in 95 Windstar ? ? ? ? ? ? ?

what's the fixation with getting it 'all out' ?...........it ain't never
gonna happen

say it holds 12 quarts and you change 4

then you have 2/3 old

next time, you change 4 more quarts

but this time you get 1/3 of the 2/3 'old stuff'

now you have changed 1/3 + 2/9 = 5/9 of the 'old'

so you have 4/9 'old' left

changing 1/3 again gets you 4/27 of the 'old'

so now you have changed out 15/27 + 4/27 of the old, or 19/27 or just over
2/3

this process can be continued indefinetely, with diminishing returns

best is to change it now, then in a week or so, then in another week, then
start doing it every 12-15K

I was going to do the iterations out to six or 7 terms, but ran out of steam
(and lunch was ready)
