Re: Transmission Magnet's/Oil Look's Terrible, Thought's ?

There should be return lines that run into the intercooler at the front just behind the grille right ? The cooler isn't at the front, as previously pointed out, it's not in the bottom of the radiator, it's a separate module bolted to the side. You can't do a drain and suck like a normal auto as the...

Re: Transmission Magnet's/Oil Look's Terrible, Thought's ?

Return from what? The transmission cooler is water cooled and mounted to the side of the transmission, nothing to disconnect/connect to. Stick your head under the passenger side and you will see it. Be aware these transmissions need to be at a certain temp to replace fluid and check levels. Maybe g...

Re: Transmission Magnet's/Oil Look's Terrible, Thought's ?

Get it flushed (not just dropping the pan oil and refilling), that's all it may need. I serviced my tranny at 148,000km, trans guy said it looks like it hadn't been done. Looked like yours without the cruddy bits. Just had it flushed again last week at 197,000km and he said it looked nice and clean...

This appears possibly like it's first Transmission Service.

Re: My 2015 XLT 3.2 4x4 Ranger is Falling Apart ($100 Reward

I sounds like you sort of know what to look for but not enough to be confident with your testing. As above, a couple hours at a good mechanic should have you in the right direction without spending on tools you'll never use again. I'm not a full bottle on it myself but I try and research to underst...

Re: My 2015 XLT 3.2 4x4 Ranger is Falling Apart ($100 Reward

Removing the EGR cooler, well done. I thought about it and got nowhere. Couldn’t get to the bolts. As a first step I’d change the transmission fluid and check for metal in the pan. Many have found this to fix issues. Also disconnect battery for a few minutes. Old batteries seem to cause unexplained...

Where are you located? Firstly get FORSCAN and check for any error codes. Oil leaks are most likely not connected to your other issues.
