Default RE: Trans Filter ?

FLUID/FILTER SERVICE (RECOMMENDED) [ol][*]Raise vehicle on a hoist. Refer to LUBRICATION and MAINTENANCE for proper procedures. Place a drain container with a large opening, under transaxle oil pan.[*]Loosen pan bolts and tap the pan at one corner to break it loose allowing fluid to drain, then remove the oil pan.[*]Install a new filter and o-ring on bottom of the valve body (Filter and O-Ring).[*]Clean the oil pan and magnet. Reinstall pan using new Mopar Silicone Adhesive sealant. Tighten oil pan bolts to 19 N·m (165 in. lbs.).[*]Pour four quarts of Mopar® ATF+4 (Automatic Transmission Fluid) through the dipstick opening.[*]Start engine and allow to idle for at least one minute. Then, with parking and service brakes applied, move selector lever momentarily to each position, ending in the park or neutral position.[*]Check the transaxle fluid level and add an appropriate amount to bring the transaxle fluid level to 3mm (1/8 in.) below the lowest mark on the dipstick (Fluid Level Indicator).[*]Recheck the fluid level after the transaxle has reached normal operating temperature (180°F.). Refer to Fluid Level and Condition Check for the proper fluid fill procedure.[*]To prevent dirt from entering transaxle, make certain that dipstick is fully seated into the dipstick opening.[/ol]
