    shouldn't be a problem. u just need to check which hose is the send hose and which is return hose. easiest way is the remove the hose and start the car and see which hose push out the atf. another way is during cold start, just start the engine and leave it for a while and then touch the hose. the hot hose should be the send hose and the cold one is the return hose.

    plug the send hose to the radiator. from the radiator, connect a hose to the cooler and then connect the other end of the cooler to your gb return hose. :driver:

    Is there really a need? Inspira already have a GB cooler that Lancers didn't have.

    Also, the way the coolers are installed are contradictory to popular mechanics. Flow is front bottom to top of the cooler. I'd set it up so that gravity assists with the flow

    Isn't it closed loop with a pump moving the fluid? how is it different with gravity assisting?

    I don't have a Inspira. My ex-Sylphy I DIY installed a CVT cooler and I routed the inlet on top and outlet at the bottom.

    Depends on what you wanna do. If just drain and top up it's about 3-4 litres. If remove oil pan, change filter and all - then 5-7L total

    Just remember newer generation gearbox dont comes with oil pan so there is no need to search for it.Do not open the black steel cover normally in front of the gb trying to search for the atf filter as its not there,only the solenoids are there.

    These type of gearbox also have filter and the par price is just slightly higher than normal oil pan type filter.However to get to the filter require removal of the gb.

    I've seen some mod where people install filter using the atf cooling line but not sure will it have effect to atf pressure.

    It becomes a double filter and might effect the pressure

    Really? Boo... I hate non-DIY-able stuff. :banghead:

    The Inspira and Sylphy share the same GB, both have a paper cone filter at the heat exchanger and another metal mesh filter at the pan itself.

    Car manufacturers tries hard to do that so all have to go back to them for service. Looking back to our olden days cars, parts can be repairs, modern days cars usually whole part is changed.....lol

    i saw they selling online the paper filter for CVT cooler ( as they named it). The filter located under the battery, so had to removed it to replace the filter. Young tech at SC say not such thing. only the filter in GB oil pan. That is why i hate pay a visit to SC. But a friend suggested SC at Kg Baru. Might take a look this weekend.

    I do read in other forum that say CVT GB tend to overheat especially when using pedal shift. Any owner got this kind of problem. Try to push hard my ride, so far few testing goes well.
