Anyone know if the 90 Loyale tranny filter is a remove and clean or replace filter. Is there a preferred technique for eliminating all the old fluid befroe refilling? Is any gasket sealer required on the pan?

I changed the trans oil on my 90 Loyale 4spd auto and found that the aftermarket replacement filter needed to be "notched" for clearance of one of the oil line tubes so I would recomend going to the Sub dealer for the filter and gasket.
I used a light coating of Permatex #2 on both sides of gasket and gently tightened the 10mm bolts across from each other. Don't overtighten the bolts.
I just refilled with 8qts prox of trans oil and drove it about 500 miles and then just drained and refilled with fresh oil.
Best tranny flush is probably through dealer if they have the power flush system available.
Unfortunatly, my differential failed not long after that and I had to replace the complete unit.
Hope this helps,
Megell
