You have to split the trans case

By 

from Houston, Tx

Pros

  • None

Cons

  • Requires Spliting Case

Best Uses

  • Trans Shop Rebuilder

Comments about Driveworks Automatic Transmission Filter Kit:

This requires spliting the trans case. Not driveway replacable. Best thing is to drain the fluid at the bottom plug. Every 20k miles, takes 4 qaurts for refill.
The other option is for a shop to flush or a rebuilder to replace it. While the transmission is apart. This info should be available @ time of purchase.
I returned the filter.

      I purchased this kit for use on an '06 Ford Escape, 6 cyl XLT. Found out it's not easy to get to. May require removal of the transmission to replace. Ended up returning the product.

        Comments about Driveworks Automatic Transmission Filter Kit:

        Needed the gasket only, but can't buy it by itself...you have to buy the filter with it. To change the filter, you must remove and dismantle transmission...I just had a pan leak and needed the gasket. I give the gasket and filter 5 stars, but the fact that you can't buy them individually is concerning and earns an overall 3 stars.

            A:

            The automatic transmission filter should be located just forward of the fuel tank on the passenger side of the car. It is relatively easy to replace as it has a hose clamp on either end attaching it between the line from the fuel tank and the line to the fuel injection system. For further assistance, please feel free to call us at 1-877-238-2623 or visit your nearest Advance Auto Parts store and one of our representatives would be more than happy to assist you.

        • Q:

          I have a 2001 Ford Escape V6 4WD. I see posts online stating that you have to disassemble the transmission to put a filter in this transmission. Is this true? Is it more than just removing the drain pan and swapping?

            A:

            Yes, you need to remove the transmission from your Ford Escape in order to change the transmission fluid filter as the filter is basically built into the tranny. For any further assistance, please visit your nearest Advance Auto store or call us directly at 1-877-ADVANCE (238-2623) and one of our representatives there would be more than happy to assist you.

            A:

            Use a socket wrench to unscrew the mounting bolts for the transmission drain pan. Wipe down the magnets inside the pan. Use a socket wrench to unscrew the bolt connecting the transmission filter and replace it with a new one. Reassemble the drain pan and plug and add more transmission fluid using the funnel attached to the dipstick tube method described earlier.
