The thread lives... this was very helpful to me this past weekend
I found that disconnecting the hose at the transmission worked better then at the radiator.. the fluid comes out of the radiator..
Thanks for all the info

Its the same AT as the 01 to '11, but in 03 it was beefed up for the more torquey Duratec engines, and earlier Zetec bolt patterns will not fit Duratec bolt patterns. The internals of the transmission cases are the same, but the case might be different. As long as you get a Duratec transmission- so 05+ are 100% Dtec- you should be ok.
If you are having issues that you feel might need to be addressed, then please start your own new thread describing your problem, and giving the pertinent information- like mileage, previous maintenance, etc.

Others will tell you different and some of the stories will be incredible, but I do not and have not ever put additives in a car for anything other than when I was young and dumb. 45+ years now and never the need. In my view if additives do anything it is short lived. I do what it takes to fix my troubles by working on parts or changing them out. I could see using one or two different products but always found a way around issues to not do so. Most of them are gimmicks to take your money, I watched hundreds of people use them to no effect except lighter wallets when I worked in auto parts. FAR more disappointment than happy faces there...............and most of the people who seemed happy were the ones who seemed very good at fooling themselves. At least the disappointed ones were honest with themselves. Adding one bottle of injector cleaner and then fervently claiming an increase of 10 miles a gallon, that sort of thing. The human mind is more frail than an automobile engine or transmission...............
Jason, it's not rocket science, change the filter if that your belief. However, don't be surprised if it does nothing. No Lucas in trans either, if it slips with known good fluid the trans is worn, all there is to it. If it slips going into 3rd only when cold then it may go a long while further yet.

|Jason1906709||well this will be my first post here... i have just bought a 00 ZX3 everything seems well but oil light flashes sometimes? i check fluid and seems normal maybe im getting something from the filter of loss of pressure? also this is a great guide 120k on motor and tranny and deff replacing tranny fluid a little slip going into 3rd (auto = hate it but have to deal with it) would you say any other products to put in like LUCUS? or just all tranny fluid?|

Absolutely and totally, they generally don't change it until errors show and then too late. Quite funny actually. Then they have to come up with a really stupid theory for why the breakage since, heavens to mercy, they cannot possibly blame their own actions. Even funnier..........some of the ideas I heard while at the auto store were beyond belief and worse than that. It must really hurt to have to think and have it make some sense.
The ONLY way I could ever see new fluid hurting a trans would be if someone overfilled it, the new fluid then cavitates clutch packs since air whipped into it and then old clutch piston seal blows out from the repeat hits of air/fluid since air compresses. But once again, that is a cockpit problem and not the fluid. Or maybe someone FORCIBLY flushing to stir up settled trash, again, not a fluid problem in and of itself.
