Keep in mind, those are the install instructions. The 9 speed is a different beast of a transmission over the older 5 & 6 speed transmissions. With either of them the top off/fill procedure was pretty straight forward. Pull the ATF dipstick, check how far it was down and fill to the filled level line.Here's a link to the installation instructions.
Maybe that will help you determine if it's something you'd want to attempt.
I'll be attempting on sunday. Saw a couple youtube videos. It doesnt look too hard. I just cant find how much additional fluid needs added. Wish me luck. Got a 4 liter bottle of pentosin atf9 for 65 bucks off rock auto.
You mean this procedure???In before OP posts: "installed transmission cooler and now my car is in limp mode".
Just make sure you are comfortable with the top off procedure, sounds awful.
If your handy with tools, like a challenge, maybe 1 or 2 bottles of your favorite "You can do it" beverage. It's pretty straight forward. The more parts you remove to get things out of the way to do the job more efficiently, the better.Thanks everyone it looks like this will be a dealer install for the cooler
Well, unless you live near or above the arctic circle, then the auxiliary ATF cooler might still want to be a consideration for the longevity of the transmission. I put on on my 2020 Passport even though I do not have a hitch installed. You want the tranny temp to get above 150 F, but keep in around the 170 F -190 F range. Ideally 170 F is the optimum for the longevity of the fluid, which means longevity of the transmission.Yeah I’m putting that on hold I don’t think the Pilot can handle my needs may have to go back into a truck
