How To Flush a Transmission Cooler -EricTheCarGuy

If you’re installing a new or rebuilt transmission into your vehicle, it’s a good idea to flush the transmission cooler. When your old transmission failed, it probably sent a bunch of gunk right into your transmission cooler. Before you run your new transmission it’s a very good idea to get all of that gunk out of there. It’s a simple procedure that can save that shiny new transmission you just installed. In addition to that, if you have a Honda like I do, it’s an even better idea to install a new in line filter into the system. This will ensure that your new transmission lasts a good long time. In this video we flush the transmission cooler and install a new filter into my 2001 Honda Odyssey. After all I’ve been through with this van lately, it’s great piece of mind. Here’s some useful links for you.

  1. Hello Eric great video as usual i jus followed your video and did vavle adjustment to my 02 mdx, i have a 02 mdx with code p710 or transmission temperture sensor blinking 5 gear any thoughts? i brought the part the dealer wants $500 to fix itcrazy) but am fearful to replace it even though the diagrams show it's seems easy but i did hear sometimes it breaks (the sensor) in the transmiision and will have to be drilled out, have you heard of this problem and it drilling out that easy or difficult?

  2. If you don't have a service manual, you can tell which is the coolant input and output by running the vehicle for a little bit and then touching to see which line is hotter and which line is not so hot. The hotter line is the input. I picked that up from a video I watched just before this one.

  3. Been driving an '04 ( second-gen) Odyssey for 10 months now. ( upon purchasing 'pre-owened'…had to replace a 3rd gear/wheel clutch sensor?…or something – had a D4 light flashing…so, serviced her with new fluid that day ( Sept 2019) and had the guy fix the 'flashing light' issue. so far , so good. well…now i've installed a 3rd class trailer hitch…and understand this thing can tow up to 3500lbs. so.. thinking about utilizing that. right…on to the Question: would it behoove at this point ( 170K miles) to install a Trans cooler? any idea what an average shop might charge to do that? thanks.

  4. Good video, but I don't think that flush got all the contaminants out of the cooler, at 7:32 you can see that the fluid being blown out of the cooler is a dark grey color. In my opinion a better option in this situation would be to install a good external cooler in front of the condenser and not use the one in the radiator, you can get a good cooler for less than $50. You would get the benefit of far superior transmission cooling with no risk of any contaminants ending up in your new transmission.

  5. Something tells me that he has the transmission oil flow reversed usually if you look down on the radiator standing in the front while the hood is open it's whatever's the furthest to the right is the line that goes back into the transmission
