Where is the "radiator cooler hose return side" that you are suppose to drain it from? Is there a diagram or pic somewhere?

And when you go to do it yourself how many quarts of trans fluid do you need? I'm thinking about 10 = 4 to refill the pan, then 5-6 to do the actual flushing.

From my understanding these are the basic steps to a flush and please correct me if I'm wrong
1. Warm engine to operating temp
2. Drain 4 qts from tranny pan
3. Put back drain bolt and Replace 4 qts
4.Add in 30% more than capacity to charging pipe while engine is idling while draining fluid from the "radiator cooler hose return side" or auxilliary trans oil cooler hose return line until fluid is clean. (? How fast does the fluid come out of the lines?)

If there is a writeup on this please direct me as I couldn't find it, it seem straight forward. Help me save $200 from the stealer. On a side note the j matic fluid is $$$ - $10 a qt!!!!

I have learned the hard way about transmisson fluid changes!

After my driveway looked like a crime scene...

I have always had good luck with the power flush on all my vehicles. That way ALL fluid is exchanged and you can replace with all synthetic..M1, Amsoil, etc...

Save yourself the mess...
