ESSENTIAL SERVICE

TRANSMISSION FLUID CHECK

CAUTION Replace the transmission fluid whenever the transaxle is replaced with a new one or the vehicle is driven in harsh conditions.

1. Drive the vehicle until the transmission fluid is warmed up to the normal operating temperature 70 − 80ºC (158 − 176ºF).

NOTE: Use scan tool MB991958 to measure the transmission fluid temperature.

NOTE: When a certain amount of time is required to warm up the transmission fluid to the normal operating temperature 70 − 80ºC (158 − 176ºF), check the oil level referring to the characteristics chart.

2. Park the vehicle on a level surface.

3. Move the selector lever to every position to fill the torque converter and the hydraulic circuit with the transmission fluid, and then move the selector lever to P or N range.

4. Wipe clean the area around the oil level gauge, and then remove the oil level gauge to check the condition of the transmission fluid.

NOTE: If the transmission fluid smells burnt or is excessively deteriorated or dirty, the transmission fluid is contaminated with particles of the metal bushings and friction material. In these cases, the transaxle must be overhauled.

5. Check that the transmission fluid level is within the "H" area on the oil level gauge. If the fluid level is low, add the transmission fluid to the "H" level.

Transmission fluid: DIA QUEEN CVTF-J1

Mitsubishi Outlander. CVT

NOTE: When the transmission fluid level is low, the oil pump sucks air together with the transmission fluid, and produces air bubbles in the hydraulic circuit. The air bubbles in the hydraulic circuit decreases the hydraulic pressure, causing the delayed gearshift or slippage of the belt, clutch, and brake. When the transmission fluid level is too high, the fluid is stirred by the gear and foams up, and the problems similar to those when the transmission fluid level is low will occur. In either case, air bubbles cause the overheat and oxidation of the transmission fluid, which prevents normal operation of the valve, clutch, and brake. Beside, when the transmission fluid is foamy, it flows out of the transaxle vent hole. This may be taken as the fluid leakage by mistake.

6. Insert the oil level gauge securely.

TRANSMISSION FLUID REPLACEMENT

1. Remove the drain plug on the bottom of the transaxle case to drain the transmission fluid.

Draining amount: Approximately 5.5 dm3 (5.81 qt)

2. Install the drain plug with a new gasket to the transaxle case, and tighten it to the specified torque.

Tightening torque: 34 +- 2 N*m (25 +- 1 ft-lb)

CAUTION If the transaxle case becomes full before filling 5.5 dm3 (5.81 qt) of transmission fluid, stop filling the transmission fluid.

Mitsubishi Outlander. CVT

3. Fill in the new transmission fluid through the oil filler tube.

Filling amount: Approximately 5.5 dm3 (5.81 qt)
Transmission fluid: DIA QUEEN CVTF-J1

4. Start up the engine and let it idle for 1 to 2 minutes.

5. Move the selector lever to every position, and then move it to the P or N range.

6. Stop the engine and perform the above steps 1 to 5 again.

7. Stop the engine, and discharge a small amount of transmission fluid to check for fouling. If fouling is found, repeat steps 1 to 5 until clean transmission fluid comes out.

8. Drive the vehicle until the transmission fluid is warmed up to the normal operating temperature 70 − 80ºC (158 − 176ºF), and check the transmission fluid level. It must be within the "H" area on the oil level gauge.

NOTE: The "C" level is for reference only. Use the "H" level as the criteria.

NOTE: Use scan tool MB991958 to measure the transmission fluid temperature.

Mitsubishi Outlander. CVT

NOTE: When a certain amount of time is required to warm up the transmission fluid to the normal operating temperature 70 − 80ºC (158 − 176ºF), check the oil level referring to the characteristics chart.

9. Adjust the transmission fluid level to the specified level.

Refill the transmission fluid when the fluid level is low, and drain the transmission fluid through the drain plug when the fluid level is high.

10.Securely insert the oil level gauge into the oil filler tube.

11.TCM records the deterioration level of the transmission fluid.

After replacing the transmission fluid with new one, use scan tool MB991958 to reset the deterioration level recorded in TCM.

FLUSHING COOLERS AND TUBES

Required Special Tool:

MB995062: Flushing Tool

WARNING

When a transaxle failure has contaminated the transmission fluid, the transaxle must be flushed. The transmission fluid warmer (transmission fluid cooler) on the transaxle must also be replaced. The torque converter must also be replaced with an exchange unit. This will ensure that metal particles or sludged transmission fluid are not later transferred back into the reconditioned (or replaced) transaxle. There are two different procedures for flushing coolers and lines. The recommended procedure is to use special tool MB995062 Flushing Tool. The other procedure is to use a hand suction gun and mineral spirits.

1. Remove the cover plate filler plug on special tool MB995062. Fill the reservoir 1/2 to 3/4 full with fresh flushing solution. Flushing solvents are petroleum based solutions generally used to clean transaxle components. Do not use solvents containing acids, water, gasoline, or any other corrosive liquids.

2. Reinstall the filler plug on special tool MB995062.

3. Verify that the pump power switch is turned "OFF". Connect the red alligator clip to the positive battery terminal. Connect the black alligator clip to a good ground.

4. Disconnect the cooler lines at the transaxle.

NOTE: When flushing the transaxle cooler and lines, always reverse flush.

5. Connect the pressure line to the OUTLET line (from cooler).

6. Connect the return line to the INLET line (to cooler).

7. Turn the pump "ON" for two to three minutes to flush the cooler(s) and lines. Monitor the pressure readings. Clear the return lines. Pressure readings should stabilize below 138 kPa (20 psi) for vehicles equipped with a single cooler and 208 kPa (30 psi) for vehicles equipped with dual coolers. If flow is intermittent or exceeds these pressures, replace the cooler(s).

Mitsubishi Outlander. CVT

8. Turn the pump "OFF". 9. Disconnect the suction line from the reservoir at the cover plate. Disconnect the return line at the cover plate and place it in a drain pan.

10.Turn the pump "ON" for 30 seconds to purge flushing solution from the cooler(s) and lines. Turn the pump "OFF".

11.Place the suction line into a one quart container of DIA QUEEN CVTF-J1 transmission fluid.

12.Turn the pump "ON" until all transmission fluid is removed from the one quart container and lines. This purges any residual cleaning solvent from the transaxle cooler(s) and lines. Turn the pump "OFF". 13.Disconnect the alligator clips from the battery. Reconnect the flusher lines to the cover plate, and remove the flushing adapters from the cooler lines. Reconnect the cooler lines.

OIL COOLER FLOW CHECK

After the new or repaired transaxle has been installed, fill to the proper level with DIA QUEEN CVTF-J1. The flow should be checked using the following procedure:

CAUTION With the fluid set at the proper level, transmission fluid collection should not exceed one quart or internal damage to the transaxle may occur.

1. Disconnect the OUTLET line (from cooler) at the transaxle and place a collecting container under the disconnected line.

2. Run the engine at curb idle speed with the shift selector in neutral.

3. If transmission fluid flow is intermittent or it takes more than 20 seconds to collect one quart of transmission fluid, replace the cooler.

4. If flow is within acceptable limits, reconnect the cooler line.

Then fill the transaxle to the proper level, using DIA QUEEN CVTF-J1.
