07 Transmission service

Getting ready to change fluid and filter on my 07 6.0. Haynes manual says to drain the torque convertor and replace the convertor plug with a new one. Is it necessary to put in a new drain plug or can I reuse the old one? Thanks for any info!

The converter doesnt have a drain plug. Id reuse the drain plug if the o ring looks good.

Re: 07 Transmission service

Haynes is worthless
Drain and fill is the DIY way
If it looks like it is in bad shape do more than one fluid swap over a few drive cycles .
Or have Ford do the heated exchange

Dont forget the toilet paper filter up front

Re: 07 Transmission service

and if you go the Ford route, check with your dealer to see if they have the heated-fluid machine. an in-town dealership didn't have it last i checked around here, but the rural dealership did (that one does LOTS of diesel work for oil field service trucks)

I'm glad to see that Haynes is consistent. They are ALWAYS wrong or missing critical information. Ford hasn't had a drain plug in the converter since August, 2001.

When the converters did have drain plugs they didn't have o-rings. The drain plug was a standard 1/8" NPT pipe plug.

Absolutely correct.

Heated flush machines are very rare. But the are absolutely required if you are going to flush the trans. Without a heated machine all they do is take your money.

I meant the drain plug on the pan, since obviously the converter doesnt have one.....
