REPAIR PROCEDURE:

  1. Using wiTECH navigate to the transmission data and locate the transmission fluid temperature.
  2. Allow the vehicle to run until the transmission fluid temperature reaches between 50°C and 60°C (122°F and 140°F). If necessary, test drive the vehicle in a suitable location until the transmission is at the optimal temperature.
  3. With the engine at idle, apply the service brakes and perform the following shifts staying in each gear for a minimum of 2 seconds.
    1. Park to Reverse.
    2. Reverse to Neutral.
    3. Neutral to Drive
    4. Drive to Park
  4. Repeat Step #3 one more time and then proceed to Step #5.
  5. Raise the vehicle on a suitable hoist. Refer to detailed hoisting procedures in DealerCONNECT/TechCONNECT Service Information Section 04 – Vehicle Quick Reference> Hoisting> Standard Procedure> Hoisting.
  6. Remove the belly pan to gain access to the fluid check plug on the lower part of the valve body cover. Refer to detailed service procedures in DealerCONNECT/TechCONNECT service information section 13 – Frame and Bumpers> Under Body Protection> Belly Pan> Removal.
  1. Place a clean suitable measuring container under the oil level check plug. Measuring container must hold at least 1000 ml (34 fl oz.)

NOTE: The check plug gasket may remain in the valve body cover pan when removing the plug.

  1. With the engine running, remove the oil level check plug, see ( 1),and capture the fluid that drains out for a total of 3 minutes.

  1. At the end of 3 minutes reinstall the oil level check plug in the valve body cover pan,turn off the engine, and measure the amount of fluid that was captured.
  2. Is the amount of fluid captured more than 1000 ml (34 fl oz.)
    • Yes>>> Proceed to Step #12.
    • No>>> Proceed to Step #24.

NOTE: Replace the oil drain plug gasket at the conclusion of this procedure.

  1. Remove the drain plug located at the bottom of the transmission case and allow the fluid to drain freely until it stops. Discard the original drain plug seal.
  2. Once fluid stops draining, reinstall the drain plug using a new seal and tighten to 40 nm (30 ft lb).
  3. Lower the vehicle.
  4. Remove the differential access port plug and add 3000 ml (101.5 fl oz.) of transmission fluid through the differential access port and reinstall the plug.
  5. Start the engine and allow the vehicle to run until the transmission fluid temperature reaches between 50°C and 60°C (122°F and 140°F)
  6. With the engine at idle, apply the service brakes and perform the following shifts staying in each gear for a minimum of 2 seconds.
    1. Park to Reverse.
    2. Reverse to Neutral.
    3. Neutral to Drive
    4. Drive to Park
  7. Repeat Step #17 one more time and then proceed to Step #19.
  8. Raise the vehicle and place a clean suitable container under the oil level check plug.
  9. With the engine running, remove the oil level check plug from the valve body cover pan and capture the fluid that drains out for 3 minutes.
  10. If there is no fluid flow initially, slowly add fluid through the differential access hole until fluid begins to flow. Once fluid begins to flow, stop adding fluid and begin the 3 minute drain.
  11. At the end of 3 minutes reinstall the oil level check plug, turn off the engine and measure the amount of fluid that was captured.
  12. Is the amount of fluid captured more than 1000 ml (34 fl oz.)
    • Yes>>> Proceed back to Step #12. You will not need to replace the drain plug seal again as stated in Step #12.
    • No>>> Proceed to Step #24.
  13. Remove the differential access port plug and add 700 ml (24 fl oz.) of fluid.
  14. Reinstall the differential access port plug and tighten to 40 nm (30 ft lb).
  15. Reinstall the belly pan. Refer to detailed service procedures in DealerCONNECT/TechCONNECT service information section 13 – Frame and Bumpers> Under Body Protection> Belly Pan> Installation.
