For those of you that do your own work.. Typically how much oil is drained
for a E4OD trans, (including what can be drained from the TC, cooler and
lines). I need to do a fluid /filter swap this weekend, and need a idea of
approx. how much ATF to pick up..13 qt's...14qts... 16qts?

Thanks in advance

I got 15 out of 15.7 on my 99 4R100 which is the upgraded
version of the E4OD. You might want to pick up a few extra qts
(about 2-3) if you want to flush it out.

When I flushed the 99 truck out, the tranny fluid was pretty Red, so it was
hard to tell old fluid from new. But on one of my other vehicles, there was
a significant color difference. ( a bit embarrising, but tranny is strong at
over 130K).

After draining, pan, cooler, and torque converter, I refilled with new ATF.
Disconnected the return line from the cooler into a 5 gallon container, and
ran the engine in short bursts to fill the converter, topping off the ATF,
until nice shiny red ATF came out.

I used Mobil 1.

To have an effice cb antenna, you will want a long one(cut to the right
swr). The rear bumper is a good place to attach a long antenna, such as
cb or shortwave. About where to mount an antenna if you can't mount on in
the center, a mag mount would probally be the next best solution. I'm
using a mag mount for my ham radio antenna currently(a hole in the roof
would make garage parking difficult.

seems mine took only 9qts with filter change, i will drive it around a bit
later but it seems to be full with filter change and refill. I had
previously changed to synthetic at around 9K so i saw no need to completely
drain or flush.

Should i be worried about a slight bit of metal sludge around drain hole
inside or is this normal? I wiped it clean and buttoned it back up.

BTW: watch out for fluid when removing filter, i took a nice arm bath.

If this is for your 4R100, that seems real low. Did you drain the Torque
converter?

About sludge, there was about a tablespoon full or so. This seems to
be normal from what i've read on www.ford -diesel. com a long time
back. As long as there's no "chunky" parts, that should be normal.

On my bronco II that has 130K+ on it's had sludge the 3 or so time's
I've changed it. The amount seems to decrease over time.

Having done the "arm bath" thing, i've learned to loosen all bolts, then
start removing the bolts from the rear to the front. This slowly lets
fluid drain into a pan. By the time you get to the last set of bolts, the pan is

pretty managable.

Works well whether you have a drain plug or not. My BII has the A4LD
which has neither a drain plug for the pan or the Torque converter.

To Dean - about which line is the return line from the cooler?
I don't remember. I disconnected the line from the cooler, and bumped
the engine. The one that spewed ATF was the return line :-).

I attached a line to whichever line I removed, and directed it to a 5 gallon
can.
Reduced the amount of fluid being spilled on the floor.
I actually had a long enough line to direct to the can, so I didn't have
to pretend I was the Exxon Valdez.

I just installed Ford mud flaps on the front and rear of my 2000
F-250. It is a Crew
Cab, SB, 4x2. The p/n's for the front are F81Z-16A550-AA/GA; rear's
are F81Z-16A550-BA/HA. These are black, molded, with the Ford
emblem embossed on the bottom (but hardly noticeable). I
ordered them from my Ford dealer. They are in the Ford accessory
catalog.
