Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 6 years ago

Hi Terry. You are checking for power 12V to the shifter and then in each gear position you want to verify you have power out of the shifter.... test all the pins to the transmission and right at the shifter.

is the trans. fluid suppose to be red?
Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 6 years ago

Some use ATF Type F or JCB special transmission fluid. Type F is red.... I would not be concerned.

the JCB guy is telling me that atf will destroy the trans.
Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 6 years ago

Hi Terry, It is always recommended to use the OEM spec transmission fluid. There is a spec on the container... click on this link and see PDF page 7 for JCB oils.... JCB makes a universal ATF... see the spec.... It matches dextron 3.... Also see the 10W transmission oil.... It meets a Cat T04 and Allison c4 spec. These are the specs you need to match.

OEM spec does not mean you have to buy it from JCB or their brand....

it does however need to meet the same spec.

The borg-warner shuttle, (the first box behind the torque converter housing) is filled through the top and checked with the dipstick. It is filled with Dex tron ATF. JCB does say not to use Dex tron due to some of the seal problems that they have had with the convertor and front pump. Dex tron will work just fine. In the transmission box, the second housing past the converter, is 90 wt gear lube. This is just a simple gear transmission and is separated from the shuttle. If you have the newer transmission, the synchro-shuttle where all you have is one large case, you HAVE to use the JCB oil. Dextron will not seal properly and you will have internal leaks on the clutch packs. You first have to know which you have, the borg-warner with the gearbox or the JCB synchro shuttle.
