I am getting ready to change the transmission fluid on my truck because it smells a little burnt and looks brown..
I got 10qts of the ford V fluid, My friend who is a ford freak tells me I have to drop the pan to change the fluid.. which is fine, no worries. Then he says I have to drain the torque converter... Problem is I don't see an access point or drain for the torque converter.
Is there a bolt after I remove the pan that will enable me to drain the torque converter? I checked youtube and didn't see anything for the 2.3l autos...
EDIT: Guess there is no bolt on the TQ converter... I have read something about the return transmission fluid line and hooking it up to a hose and bucket to drain it while pouring new fluid in....
Where is the return line?
Is it this:
