BLEEDING



  1. Ensure that the reservoir is full of Dexron®II automatic transmission fluid.
  2.  
  3. Raise and safely support the front wheels of the vehicle.
  4.  
  5. Turn the steering wheel from lock to lock 5 or 6 times.
  6.  
  7. Disconnect the coil wire and connect to a solid ground. Operate the starter motor intermittently for 15 to 20 seconds and turn the steering wheel from lock to lock 5 or 6 times.
  8.  

Ensure that the reservoir is full during air bleeding to prevent the fluid level from falling below the lower position of the filter.

  1. Connect the coil wire and start the engine.
  2.  
  3. Turn the steering wheel from lock to lock until no more air bubbles are visible in the reservoir.
  4.  
  5. Confirm that the oil is not milky and that the fluid level is correct.
  6.  
  7. Confirm that there is little change in the fluid level when the steering wheel is turned to the left and right.
  8.  

An abrupt rise in the fluid level after stopping the engine is a sign of incomplete bleeding. If this occurs, repeat the bleeding procedure.
