Servicing E4OD

Does anyone know if the E4OD has a drain plug in the torque converter like the C6?

Re: drainplug location?

On the C6, the drain plug is acessed through the flex plate right next to one of the studs that bolts the torque converter to the flex plate. Can't help ya on the AOD. I've never serviced one of those.

Re: Synthetic fluid

What kind of Synthetic fluid are you using?? I wanted to do the same but can't find it in PA. Also when you drain the converter how do you fill it back up? I've never drained the converter b-4.

Re: Synthetic fluid

Castrol Dextron IV/Mercon...any name brand will do though. Even synthetic blend is good if you can't afford straight synthetic. Just put the plug back in (with sealant and/or teflon tape) after it's drained. Fill it like normal through the dipstick. Should take anywhere from 12-14 quarts.

Re: Synthetic fluid

On mine it's not on the front towards the engine, it's actually in the outer diameter of the convertor body, so you get to it from the bottom of the tranny though a 2" diameter hole in the tranny housing. Mine didnt' have it, but there's supposed to be a black rubber plug in the inspection hole to keep rocks out... uhh, my drain plug was kinda beat up from rocks getting in there wedged between the housing and the drain plug... not good.

Are you gonna flush the cooling lines out too? There's probably a quart or two in there as well.

Re: Synthetic fluid

Muddy,

Do you fill up the tranny start it and then keep filling until the converter is full or how. I need to do mine ('93).

Havack!

Re: Synthetic fluid

There is a round rubber plug on the bottom of the bell housing. Guess that's it.
If you drain the converter too, then I usually start by putting 6 quarts in and then starting it up and add til it's topped off.

I'm not worried about the quart or so in the lines, it's too much of a hassle to flush them.
