Transmission lines - changing fluid

Recommended Posts

Hello, I was wondering if someone could help me out with locating the transmission line that I should tie into when trying to change out  my trans fluid. I searched around the forum, but was unable to find the location and process to do so. I did this with my other vehicle (chevy cruze) and the process was easy, so I was planning to do it for our edge instead of just draining out the trans fluid over and over. Any info would be great. 

 

Thank you.

Good idea to add your vehicle Model Year to your profile.

I did multiple drain and fills, .....didn't touch the lines to and from the cooler.

Yes, sorry about that. I will get that done. It is a 2010 SEL with a 3.5 liter. I will pprotagonist end up doing the drain and fill process. Thank you for the response.

So, back again. Changed the brake fluid, steering fluid, and coolant. Now finally I would still like to try changing all of the transmission oil by tapping into the transmission lines. Is the picture I am attaching the correct transmission lines to disconnect and tap into?

I think you'll need to turn on the flash and take another photo.

Just break down and change from beneath using the drain bolt, 7/6” I think, up at the front of the trans pan. 5 qts. If in doubt just measure what came out and replace same amount. My 2014 uses Mercon LV, yours might be Mercon L.

I borrowed steel ramps but they were too high, the pan actually tilted backwards so I had to “edge” it down backwards on the ramps till it was more level. Chock your tires!
