4R100 adding external inline bypass Filter. Good or Bad Idea?
Ok I searched and could not come up with a good answer. I'm getting ready to change all my oils in the truck and I am going to add a second cooler and maybe a filter.
What do you guys think about an inline filter for the 4R100 Automatic Transmission?
wix makes some tranny specific stuff. What's the flow rate of our tranny lines?
Do I need the bigger one for the flow rate?
the smaller one(#1) will fit on the inside of the frame rail away from any road hazzards. The bigger (#2)one is BIG 7" long filter and the base is 2". Might need to put that up by the cooler?
Setup 1) Filter # 51624. This filter has a bypass valve setting of 13-19 psi, and a micron rating of 19 (the lower the micron rating, the smaller the particle it will trap. I don’t think this will be a big consideration for transmission applications however, and both of these filters will be more than adequate). The filter is 4.3” tall. You would use mounting base # 24764 for this setup. Here are prices and specs:
7-9 GPM FILTER

24764 - $22.69 Part Detail
Setup 2) Filter # 51158. This filter has a bypass valve setting of 18-20 psi, and a micron rating of 32. The filter is 7” tall. You would use mounting base # 24768 for this setup. Something to keep in mind is that this filter is going to take 1.29 quarts of transmission fluid to fill. Here are the prices and specs:
12-16 GPM FILTER
51158 - $7.70 Part Detail
24768 - $24.68 Part Detail
