ATF COOLER CLEANING

Special Tools Required

ATF cooler cleaner GHTTTCF6H

Magnetic nonbypass spin-on filter GTHGNBP2 These special tools are available through the Honda Tool
and Equipment Program 1-888-424-6857.

Before installing an overhauled or remanufactured automatic transmission, you must thoroughly clean the ATF
cooler to prevent system contamination. Failure to do so could cause a repeat automatic transmission failure.

The cleaning procedure involves heated ATF-Z1 delivered under high pressure (100 psi). Check the security of
all hoses and connections. Always wear safety glasses or a face shield, along with gloves and protective
clothing. If you get ATF in your eyes or on your skin, rinse with water immediately.

1. Check the fluid in the cooler cleaner tank. (The fluid level should be 4.5 inches from the top of the filler

neck.) Adjust the level if needed; do not overfill. Use only Acura ATF-Z1; do not use any additives.

2. Plug the cooler cleaner into a 110 V grounded electrical outlet.

WARNING:

Improper use of the ATF cooler cleaner can result in burns and other
serious injuries.

Always wear eye protection and protective clothing, and follow all
instructions in this manual.

NOTE:

Make sure the outlet has no other appliances (light fixtures, drop lights,
extension cords) plugged into it Also, never plug the cooler cleaner into an
extension cord or drop light; you could damage the unit.

3. Flip the HEAT toggle switch to ON; the green indicator above the toggle switch comes on. Wait 1 hour

for the cooler cleaner to reach its operating temperature. (The cooler cleaner is ready to use when the
temperature gauge reads 140° to 150°F.)

4. Select the appropriate pair of fittings, and attach them to the radiator, to the hoses, or to the banjo bolts

for flow through the ATF cooler cleaner.

5. Connect the red hose to the cooler outlet line (the line that normally goes to the external filter on the

transmission).

6. Connect the blue hose to the cooler inlet line.

7. Connect a shop air hose (regulated to 100 to 125 psi) to the air purge valve.

NOTE:

If the red indicator above the HEAT toggle switch comes on, the fluid level
in the tank is too low for the tank heater to work (see step 1 of this
procedure).

8. Flip the MOTOR toggle switch to ON; the green indicator above the toggle switch comes on. Let the

pump run for 5 minutes. While the pump is running, open and close the air purge valve periodically to
cause agitation and improve the cleaning process. Always open the valve slowly. At the end of the 5-
minute cleaning period, leave the air purge valve open.

9. With the air purge valve open, flip the MOTOR toggle switch to OFF; the green indicator goes off. Leave

the air purge valve open for at least 15 seconds to purge the lines and hoses of residual ATF, then close
the valve.

10. Disconnect the red and blue hoses from the ATF cooler. Now connect the red hose to the cooler inlet line.

11. Now connect the blue hose to the cooler outlet line.

12. Flip the MOTOR toggle switch to ON, and let the pump run for 5 minutes. While the pump is running,

open and close the air purge valve periodically. Always open the valve slowly. At the end of the 5-minute
cleaning period, leave the air purge valve open.

13. With the air purge valve open, flip the MOTOR toggle switch to OFF. Leave the air purge valve open for

at least 15 seconds to purge the lines and hoses of residual ATF, then close the valve.

14. Disconnect the red and blue hoses from the ATF cooler lines.

15. Connect the red and blue hoses to each other.

16. Disconnect the shop air from the air purge valve. Disconnect and stow the coupler if used.

NOTE:

The quick-connect fitting has a one-way check valve to keep ATF from
entering your shop’s air system. Do not remove or replace the fitting.
Attach the coupler provided with the cooler cleaner to your shop air line if
your coupler is not compatible.

NOTE:

While the pump is running with the air purge valve open, it is normal to
see vapor coming from the filler/breather tube vents.
