Arrow Who can help with a Transmission Flush? - September 9, 2009, 05:37 PM

So my transmission has been acting up, and my first step is going to be a transmission flush, so my question is, does anyone have access to a machine that will flush my transmission completely?

I'll be more than happy to compensate for your time just let me know if you like beer, coffee, lunch, dinner, whatever...

If I can't find anyone to help me here, then I'll resort to a local shop, just figured I'd ask if anyone was willing to help if they have the resources available.

Thanks in advance

depending on the transmission, you can do it without a flush machine.

Google hoot method.

its an 86' Toyota 4Runner, I've heard of a few different "non-machine" methods, but I figure I'd like to do it right on my first try and didn't want to take any chances

good idea. check out www.bfindashop.com for a vehicle service and repair facility near you. They will have the right tools to service the transmission fluid by exchanging it with new. You can see how it's done by clicking on the corresponding demo video on www.bgams.com.

Good luck man.

on the internet you can be anyone you want, it's strange that so many people choose to be so stupid

I'm no expert, but I've DIYed my way through quite a few trans repairs.

Flushing fluid is a good place to start. It is often in vain though, as the trans is often already shot. You're problem sounds like it might be the solenoids, which would be sweet.

I'm not far from Fairfax. If you want, I can take a look at your fluid and give you my opinion on whether your trans is starting to cook or not. The people that flush it should also be able to tell you.

If you decided to swap it (usually super easy on a truck...), I have a trans jack you can borrow. I pulled the trans out of my Ram and had it rebuilt for $500. I swapped the trans in my vette but that was a 20+ hr job because you have to drop the whole rear subframe. Now I'm rambling.
