rookie mistake- drained transmission fluid without checking the fill plug
Posted 29 April 2012 - 04:29 PM
first thing i found was to fill thru the reverse switch indictor sensor, which im guessing is stripped, either it takes a special sensor socket, or its stripped because a 19mm wrench will not work on it, and 18mm and 11/16th will not fit. so now the reverse sensor is stripped.
ive also heard of filling thru the transmission shifter, so i removed the shifter out and poured fluid in the socket that it goes into and fluid doesnt go anywhere "im i doing this wrong?"
there was a small bolt to the left of the shifter but on the side a little lower when sitting in the drivers seat, i took it out, theyre was a spring in there and i put a VERY long zip tie in there and it doesnt lead into the transmission.
what are my options at this point, ive read all the posts on this and most people figure out this problem with the reverse sender sensor, im gonna try this if i have to what do you guys think.
i took out the speedometer gear towards the rear of the car and i want to take it to my buddies lift and lift up just the rear end of the car, til the front bumper is pretty much touching the ground and then fill in exactly 4.25 pints of fluid "which ive read is the perfect amount?", im hoping this will work because its pretty much my only shot if i dont wanna drop the trans. any help would be much appreciated

A hint for reassembly: use loctite PST and no more than 1/4 turn from finger-tight!

Reinstall properly, do not overtorque. Reinstall properly, do not overtorque. Reinstall properly, do not overtorque.
