What make you think you have to change the filter when flushing the ATF? There are 3 magnets inside the transmission pan. They will collect all the shaving so you don't have to change your filter. Sorry this is not a FORD.

jpi,

thx for responding-

i thought that any crud that might have been removed i'm sure they used a clear flush treatment - might clog up the filter !

what do you think!

Hello,

I assume that you have a GS300 or 400 right? If so, then the only filter you have is a "screen" that can be cleaned, not replaced. The only time I would replace that screen would be if the screen is damaged or has a big hole in it.

If the transmission fluid is changed regularly, cleaning that screen should not be necessary.

Thanks,

gserep1,

thx- yea it's a 1993 gs 300 -but if you look at my earlier post in this thread- i replaced the screen/filter before i did a flush - would i need to change it or clean it ? i have no ramps(or time) so i would have to get somebody to do it!

do you think it's necessary or does the flush also clean off the screen/filter?

thx
