Power Flushing

Repair procedure
1. Before power flushing, inspect the hoses/lines and clamps. Power flushing must begin with back flushing followed by forward flushing to quickly dislodge the restriction. If back flushing is not performed before forward flushing, the restriction could further reduce the ATF flow through the internal mesh type baffle of the cooler and flushing will not be effective or possible.
Inspecting oil lines and clamps
1. Be sure to inspect the lines (hoses/pipes) for cuts, crimps (pinched), cracks or any other damage before reusing them.

CAUTION:

Back flushing
1. Following the power flushing equipment manufacturer"s instructions, connect equipment so the flushing fluid flows in the opposite direction of normal fluid flow.

2. Flush oil cooler/lines until discharge fluid is clean.

CAUTION:

Forward flushing
1. Connect power flushing equipment so the flushing fluid flows in the direction of normal fluid flow.

2. Flush oil cooler/lines until discharged fluid is clean.
