4EAT Fluid Flush?
Posted 26 September 2003 - 07:07 PM
I'm inheriting a '98 Impreza, and am in the process of doing some routine maintenance.
This weekend, I'm doing front brake pads/rotors, and would also like to flush the AT fluid as it smells 'off'. Car has the EJ22/4EAT and is at 75,000 miles.
No real service history, so I don't know if the 60k service was performed or not...
What is the proper type/brand of fluid to use (if there is a good OEM substitute, that is)? And how many quarts?
I understand that MY 1999 and later cars have an external filter, but this car most likely does not?
(Sorry for my ignorance...I did a search here and read the articles on End Wrench, but I'm still confused :-\ )
Thanks for any info you might be able to give me!

I hope this helps.

I highly recommend changing the filter whether it be internal or external. A clogged filter can reduce system pressure which can cause erratic operation or premature wear.

On my dad's Volvo 850 they have you remove the AT cooling lines and flush through those while the car is running...

You were impressive on those percentages, too!
