Question
Howard
1977 xj6
I have read that when draining the transmission from the pan that only about a third of the old fluid is drained leaving the remainder of the old fluid that has to be pumped out of the system.
Is this true for my vehicle?
Thank you,
David

Answer
Hi David,

That is close to true as the torque converter is still loaded with fluid and I don't think it has a drain plug. If your fluid is badly contaminated you might call a local automatic transmission shop as some have equipment to flush the whole system. If you are just making a routine change it may not be necessary.
