#186 of 195 Re: how do i change transmission fluid [us_army_75th]
Oct 11, 2012 (8:03 am)
The dealer uses a machine that takes the old fluid from the outbound cooler line and replaces it with new fluid in the inbound cooler line thereby replacing 95% of the fluid in the entire transmission. This is the recommended method.
You can do it yourself with rubber tubing and 2 clean 5 gallon buckets - just make sure you keep fresh fluid in the intake bucket and run the car to get the pump going.
You can drop the pan and change the fluid that way but you'll only get a fraction of the old fluid out. Not recommended.

#189 of 195 Nonstop problems with 00 Lincoln LS V8
Feb 20, 2013 (6:29 am)
My mechanic replaced my hydraulic fan with an electric fan. I haven't had a overheating problem yet...we'll see what happens during the summer months. Since its been replaced though it makes this weird humming noise. My mechanic said its because the pump is dry since its not being used.. does that sound right ? Timing chain went a couple months ago had that replaced luckily no piston or valve damage. I've been having some issues with my transmission, whenever I put it in reverse it takes a minute to go into gear and then it kicks back really hard. Any idea what could be causing that ?? I had a tranny flush done but that didn't help the issue. Also my ABS and brake lights are on. I know I have a ABS issue cus sometimes when I go to brake the petal pushes back up. Is that fixable and does anyone know how much that part costs ?

There are plenty of posts on this string explaining the chronic issues with the hydraulic fans. Try swapping to an electric one.

The problem for my car when the fan wouldnt come on was the hydraulic fan motor which was
about $600 dealer part. I changed the fan twice before they figured out the problem.

And they suck all around. Buy an electric fan for half the price installed and be done with it.
