Changing fluid in trans..got questions

Ordered FT-180 filter and 9qts of LV fluid just now from diesel filters. Just to be sure I'm doing this right I wanted to confirm the steps.

- drive truck until trans is up to operating temp
- remove drain plug from trans pan and drain fluid
- take remaining bolts out of pan (drop pan)
- replace internal filter
- replace pan and bolts
- fill trans with new fluid to max hot line
- drive truck
- shut off and check fluid level

does this sound right?

Yep. But if your just changing fluid in the pan then you dont really need to drive it to get it up to temp.

thats how i did mine but im pretty sure to check our trans fluid the trans has to be up to temp and in park or nuetral

heres some advice for you

1. when you drop the pan do not be suprised to see a thick coating of fine shavings on the drain pan magnet . clean it off good and re install the magnet into the pan. its just normal wear of the clutches im assuming

2. when I pull the internal filters out, 99% of the time the little salmon/pink o ring thing is stuck up in there. its best to try to get it out with a pick but if its tight i usually take a screw drive and pry in on one side and bend the o ring out of shape and then it will come out. its a metal ring coated in rubber so thats why it bends when you take a screwdriver and pry it out. just make sure if any of the rubber rips when you use the screw driver or pick that you dont leave any pieces up there.

thats about all i got for ya, i think mine took closer to 10qts of fluid. the trans pan gasket is reusable, for the back bolts behind the trans cross member its easiest if you have a swivel socket! good luck!
