A transmission flush is a bad idea. A complete drain and refill is a good idea. A Google search will give detailed instructions.

To do a transmission flush, first read the manual to your car. You will find out when you will need to do a transmission flush and how to do a flush.

Transmission flush is really good for your car. A transmission flush is a mixture of oil and transmission fluid which allows your transmission to run really smoothly.

In order to flush a 2002 Yamaha Wave Runner you will first need flush kit. These kits make it simple to flush out water and sand.

Yes! you should flush your transmission fluid at least two or three times a year or when you chanfe your fluid and filter in the tranny.

Have the vehicle towed to a transmission shop to be flushed and serviced.

Really not a good idea unless you have a transmission malfunction. Check/change your transmission filter, and add a few quarts of Toyota ATF-III.

You should not flush 1995 Honda Accord transmission fluid. Transmission fluid should be taken to the appropriate dumping site and disposed of there.

You don't flush a manual transmission. You just drain the old fluid, and refill with new.

No they are completely different. A engine flush will only clean the engine a transmission flush will only clean the transmission. These two components use two different kinds on fluid therefor they can not be mixed together.

Take the car to a reputable transmission shop and have then perform a transmission flush and filter change. Have them inspect the inside of the filter and transmission pan magnet for metal shavings. The transmission may need to be rebuilt.

There isn't a transmission dipstick. Auto mechanics have tools that will flush the transmission but other than that, there is no dipstick. There is a transmission pan under the truck where you can drain/flush your transmission.

You will probably never get it all out without the aid of a transmission flush machine. Any fluid left behind will destroy the transmission in a short time. I recommend not driving the vehicle! Have it towed to a garage that can perform that service and hope for the best.

To flush the coolant in a 2002 Toyota Echo you will need to drain it first. Flush with fresh water and then refill with coolant and distilled water.

User Avatar

The transmission filter will be located inside the transmission. Their is no need to replace it if you flush it. A flush will clean everything and rinse the filter

User Avatar

Flush the cooling system? Flush the fuel system? Flush the hydraulic brake system? Flush the AC system? Flush the transmission? Pick one.

Your owners manual lists a transmission oil change as regular maintenance. If someone is recommending a flush it would replace this service. If there is a fault and they are recommending a flush it is to late, the transmission needs repair.

Flush it with BG product. They disconnect the transmission cooler lines from the transmission to the radiator and connect a BG machine that contains replacement fluid. Your car's transmission pump forces the old fluid out of the transmission and the torque converter and the BG machine replaces it with the new fluid. There are 2 fluids that BG uses to complete the process. First fluid is a cleaner and the 2nd fluid is a conditioner for the new transmission fluid. DO NOT just drain the transmission fluid, but do a flush.

My research (and experience) indicates that on higher mileage (80,000+ miles) Toyota transmissions, if the fluid has not been changed previously, the friction caused by the fine metal particles in old/dirty transmission fluid help make the transmission work. As metal parts wear down this extra friction becomes necessary to transfer power. Putting in slick new clean fluid cleans out the particles and causes the transmission to slip soon after. So you may not want to touch higher mileage Toyota transmissions if you don't know the fluid flush history or if it was not routinely flushed.

A manual transmission flush on a 1998 ford explorer costs 70 dollars.

There is not an approved method for flushing the transmission itself,You can however flush the transmission cooler, "Manditory when the transmission is replaced". Pall makes an Allison approved cooler flusher,they are very expensive though. Allisontech

If you have to ask - you can't do it. The transmission needs to be drained, then new fluid is pumped though to ensure all the old fluid and any contaminants are out. I just had mine done at a transmission shop - the GM dealer didn't even have the proper equipment to do this.

just give it a full flush in your toilet. Oh i believe a half flush wont work!
