Worked well

I didn't need the gasket since mine was reusable, but saved it since it looks like it's good quality. Filter was the fiber-mesh like what I had, not just a screen.

This product does not even fit! If you have a 2003 Ford Mustang 3.8L the new filter will not work. There is already an o ring in the transmission bore hole, and I tried hammering, twisting, etc... Had to return it, and put the stock filter back on. Very frustrating considering that you can't exchange without having to spend $30 more to get new fluid if you don't have an alternative vehicle to get to the store.

        Comments about Driveworks Automatic Transmission Filter Kit:

        Stick with Motorcraft. This filter WOULD NOT seat in the transmission bore hole. I had to take the O ring ( lip, seal, whatever name you use) from the original Ford filter and use it with this one. The filter simply would not snap in the bore hole and would fall out with the O ring provided. I tried several times to seat the filter as is and it would not stay. This is a terrible feeling when you have the pan off, oil on your hands, and frustrated with a supposed OEM part. Thank God I was quick on my feet and thought to use the original O ring from the old filter. It was still in good enough shape. Don't buy this filter...I won't next time.

        Comments about Driveworks Automatic Transmission Filter Kit:

        Filter fell out! Installed 500 miles ago. Filter professionally installed. Old o ring removed. Vibration was heard inside the transmission after this filter was installed. Pan was re-removed and it was found the filter had fallen out (this is a press fit filter) and was vibrating on the pan. We tried to press the filter back in and it would not hold in place. It would only sit in the bore crooked. This filters design is poor, the fitment is poor, and cost another 5 quarts of Mercon V. Spend the extra few $ for the better quality one.

          I did not use the gasket but instead used the reusable one that is stock. The filter fit but you had to punch it in there a bit. The stock filter snaps in easier than this filter but it did fit with a bit of force. Anyway, the job was done and no leaks.

              Have always considered motor oil changes important, but not transmission fluid changes. That is, until my F-150 with 110,000 miles started having some slippage of gear changes with my automatic tran. Found some excellent videos on DIY fluid changes on internet (YouTube's the best) and it wasn't so difficult. Pro-King filter looked and fit just like the removed filter and contributed greatly to an uncomplicated job. Old filter full of metal bits; new one definitely indicated. Didn't need pan gasket because original gasket is reusable, but I got a spare now if a leak ever occurs. Got a Toyota needs same thing. I'll be looking for a Pro-King transmission filter for that one, too.

              i would rather go to the dentist than change transmission fluid and filter, but at least the kit worked well.... the filter fit fine, the gasket was flimsy but mine is a reusable one so i didn't need the one in the kit.. if you use the one in the kit use some sticky gasket seal to hold it in place or you will fight it the whole time

                • CUSTOMER CARE

                  A:

                  It may have a Drain Plug if you have an old Torque Converter as it had one when it came out in 1995. But if it is a 1995 with a replacement 4R70W Transmission and a newer Torque Converter made after April 2002 then it will not have a Drain Plug. The rubber plug is normally 1 or 1.5" in diameter on the bottom of your bell housing that give's you access to your torque converter drain plug.

                  When I was reading the Chilton's manual it says that it is a piece that was left in your transmission from the factory. It was used to keep dirt and other debris out of the transmission during assembly. It also said you should ONLY see this on your first trans service and to dispose of it.

                • A:

                  I think what you're refering to looks kind of like a fishing bobber. This is just a piece that's put in to plug dipstick hole when transmission is manufactured and filled in upside down position and then the pan put on. when dipstick is inserted in transmission it knocks this plug out and has no further use, just throw it away. All it really means is that the pan has not been off you're transmission before.
