The auto dealer ran my vin to determine how much fluid I would need, it was very costly, also I followed the fill procedure by adding 4to5 quarts to start with, ran the car and keept adding until the fluid came out the secoundary plug (it made noise like it was low on fluid untill I got all 6 quarts in) I also used the same tool they have at Advace auto to do a snap shot of the engine temp, this tool dosent allow me to control moduels, or read the temp of the trans, just the coolant temp and IAC temp. After this procedure was done it used about 7 quarts untill the fluid ran out the secoundary plug, when I added another 1, 3/4 quarts it started driving fine, before it acted like it was just low on fluid.
I did also flush the cooler lines out by putting rubber houses on one cooler line and the other into a container of fresh fluid and putting compressed air into the container to push fluid into the tube and throught the cooler. Then just air.
The dealer said the use water to flush them and a special adapter they don't have.
I do want to reflush, refill and add the additive to insure it has the proper fluid and level. I would like to find more ligature or info on the refill procedure, once I flush it again I will have the dealer do a pressure check to ensure the trans has proper pressure output Thank you for all your help and detail.
