Engine mount (RH)
(See Engine Mount Removal Note.)
Oil pipe, oil hose
Radiator (in tank oil cooler)
1. Support the engine using the SST.
2. Remove the engine mount.
1. The automatic transmission oil cooler flushing must be performed whenever a transmission is removed for service because the existing fluid may be contaminated, and to prevent contamination of new fluid.
Flushing must be performed after installation of the overhauled or replaced transmission.
2. Follow the instructions in the manufacturer’s publication for flushing operation.
1. Apply compressed air to cooler‐side opening, and blow any remaining grime and foreign material from the cooler pipes. Compressed air should be applied for more than 1 min.
2. Be sure to install the oil hose between the power steering pipe and the radiator cowl as shown in the figure.
3. Align the marks, and slide the oil hose onto the oil pipe until it is fully seated as shown.
4. Install the hose clamp onto the hose.
5. Verify that the hose clamp does not interfere with any other components.
