Steve,

 

THANK YOU! Very helpful.

 

Also can I bother you to see if that 7 quarts includes the fluid in the torque converter?


THANKS again,

Expert:  Steve replied 5 years ago.
You will not be able to drain the torque converter. That is just the fluid in the pan. Always double check level when done.
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

Oh okay thanks, XXXXX XXXXX the torque converter fluid was user accessible (possibly with special tools?) and supposed to be replaced with the rest of the fluid.


THANKS for the reminder about checking fluid also!

Glad to help. Years ago mostly Ford converters had a drain plug. With lock up converters there is no way to drain them anymore.
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
THANKS again Steve!

One more question, do you have the ability to check by VIN to see whether I have the shallow or deep pan transmission?

Expert:  Steve replied 5 years ago.
Sorry but I do not have that ability. From my experiance the 4wds have the deeper pan for more fluid cooling capacity

THANK YOU again Steve, you were extremely helpful!
