Automatic Transmission Fluid

RE: Automatic Transmission Fluid
7L is the total capacity ng fluid. pero pag magbukas ka ng drainplug only about 2.5L lang ang lalabas more or less hindi aabot ng 3.5L. So kung kinargahan ka ng 3.5 malamang sobra ang CVTF level mo ngayon. hindi naman kasi lalabas lahat majority of the fluid is left sa torque converter at sa valve body ng transmission.

RE: Automatic Transmission Fluid
For Reference on CVT Fluid Replacement, excerpt from Section 23A of the Service Manual

"TRANSMISSION FLUID REPLACEMENT"

1.Remove the drain plug on the bottom of the transaxle case to drain the transmission fluid.
Draining amount: Approximately 2.5 dm3 (2.64 qt)

2.Install the drain plug with a new gasket to the transaxle case, and tighten it to the specified torque.
Tightening torque: 35 +/- 4 N.m (26 +/- 2 ft-lb)
CAUTION
If the transaxle case becomes full before filling 2.5 dm3 (2.64 qt) of transmission fluid, stop filling the transmission fluid.

3.Fill in the new transmission fluid through the oil filler tube.
Filling amount: Approximately 2.5 dm3 (2.64 qt)
Transmission fluid: MITSUBISHI MOTORS GENUINE CVTF-J4

4.Start up the engine and let it idle for 1 to 2 minutes.

5.Move the selector lever to every position, and then move it to the P or N range.

6.Stop the engine and perform the above steps 1 to 5 again.

7.Stop the engine, and discharge a small amount of transmission fluid to check for fouling. If fouling is found, repeat steps 1 to 5 until clean transmission fluid comes out.

8.Drive the vehicle until the transmission fluid is warmed up to the normal operating temperature 50 - 80C (122 - 176F), and check the transmission fluid level. It must be within the "H" area on the oil level gauge.
NOTE:
The "C" level is for reference only. Use the "H" level as the criteria.
NOTE:
Use scan tool (M.U.T.-III.) to measure the transmission fluid temperature.
NOTE:
When a certain amount of time is required to warm up the transmission fluid to the normal operating temperature 50 - 80C (122 - 176F), check the oil level referring to the characteristics chart.

9.Adjust the transmission fluid level to the specified level. Refill the transmission fluid when the fluid level is low, and drain the transmission fluid through the drain plug when the fluid level is high.

10.Securely insert the oil level gauge into the oil filler tube.

11.TCM records the deterioration level of the transmission fluid. After replacing the transmission fluid with new one, use scan tool (M.U.T.-III) to reset the deterioration level recorded in TCM

RE: Automatic Transmission Fluid
^ kung "outside the casa" na ang pms how can they tell the CVTF temperature and reset the deterioration level recorded in TCM?(since they dont have MUT-III and not all have aftermarket OBD's)?

the deterioration level is actually not that important since this is just a count just like the cars trip meter. ang important is the temperature para malaman ang correct level. so pinaka mabisa talaga is sukatin yun lumabas at yun lang ang dami ng ipalit kung wala kang aftermarket OBD or MUT-III

The deterioration level may not be that important so the reset is not that of a big deal. I would think steps 1-7 is enough for a proper drain. In my opinion if you follow steps 1-5, the minimum CVT fluid to be used will be 5 liters.

RE: Automatic Transmission Fluid
whats important is the correct level of fluid, you can not really tell if you dont know the actual fluid temperature.just ready a bucket measure the amount drained and pour in the same amount this way you are sure that your fluid level is the same as when the tranny was manufactured and initially filled (not unless you have a leak of course).

sa tube kung saan nakasaksak ang dipstick dun nilalagay ang fluid, you will need a suitable hose or funnel para walang tumapon. drain plug madali naman makita sa ilalim kasing laki rin ng drain plug ng engine oil pan but it uses a different kind of washer gasket.

RE: Automatic Transmission Fluid
Sayang. I forgot to remind yung mechanic to check for fouling. Baka ibalik ko. 3 liters of the same CVTF J4 was used. Nabili ko sa Daimond Motors Valle Verde. 4 nabili ko so may 1 liter pa siguro to fill in for some fouling kung ibabalik ko. Advisable pa ba ibalik?

RE: Automatic Transmission Fluid
guys just to remind you that CVT trannies are very SENSITIVE in fluids / maintenance / levels/ etc. It's a procedure that should be done sa casa. For a minimal difference in cost against your favorite talyer, it's not worth the risk. JATCO7 trannies cost P150k upwards to replace. HTH
