INTRODUCTION
Congratulations on the purchase of your SUN MFX Xtreme transmission fluid and power steering
fluid exchanging machine!
Simply put, this machine is the cleanest, safest, easiest, fastest, most thorough, and most costefficient method of fluid exchange ever devised. Suddenly, regular automatic transmission and
power steering maintenance become a more realistic proposition. Transmission and power
steering fluid exchanging are cleaner and neater than ever!
Transmission Fluid Exchange:
To attain the highest level of protection for internal transmission components and increase the life
span of your transmission to the maximum, it is recommended that the transmission’s lubrication
system is serviced every 15,000 miles (or according to the vehicle owner’s manual). The SUN
MFX Xtreme exchanges virtually all of your used transmission fluid to new, without requiring you
to drop the transmission pan. There is no spillage, and no mess.
Power Steering Fluid Exchange:
Service neglect leads to power steering system complaints including poor handling, hard or
sluggish steering, and objectionable noise. Historically, power steering system fluid service has
been neglected, often due to the lack of a convenient method for providing such flush or fluid
exchange services. Previous methods for flushing the power steering system or replacing the
power steering fluid were time consuming and often inefficient or incomplete. Now, it’s easier than
ever to replace up to 95% of the old power steering fluid in less than 8 minutes!
• The MFX Xtreme can be used practically anywhere – and with almost any vehicle.
• It is compact, mobile, and self-contained.
• It operates off the 12-volt battery of the vehicle being serviced.
• You do not need a pit, lift, or ramp.
• The MFX Xtreme hooks up directly to one of the vehicle’s transmission cooler lines for a
transmission fluid exchange.
• The ATF fluid exchange, from setup to finish, typically takes 15 minutes or less!
No wonder an ATF exchange is the most requested method of preventative automatic
transmission maintenance today. Now you have the option of a power fluid exchange as well…
Both in one machine!
Please take time to read through this manual to familiarize yourself with the SUN MFX
Xtreme before performing your first ATF or PSX exchange.

APPENDIX B - MAINTENANCE
NOTE: The SUN MFX Xtreme requires a minimal amount of maintenance.
• Frequently inspect and clean any tools used, and lubricate all non-sealed ratchet
mechanisms with light oil.
• The use of any other accessories not specified in this manual may create a hazard.
• Read, understand and follow Safety Instructions in the front pages of this manual.
MAINTENANCE PROCEDURES
• Replace Canister Filters (on manifold) every 50 exchanges, or as needed
Remove service door using appropriate allen-wrench. Use a standard filter band clamp tool to
unscrew old filters, and replace them with new filters. Make sure new filters are on tight.
• Clean Filter Screen (PSX) every 50 exchanges, or as needed
Remove service door using appropriate allen-wrench. Open filter screen housing by unscrewing
the top. Use a sharp pick to remove screen from housing. Clean using degreaser and brush, and
blow out with air compressor. Put screen back in housing.
• Clean Used Fluid Screen (Located in bottom of recessed hose tray area)
This helps eliminate surface tension caused by debris and contamination from the air.
Using a sharp pick, remove screen. Clean using degreaser and brush, and blow out with air
compressor.
• Inspect Sensor Tubes for fluid accumulation
Remove service door using appropriate allen-wrench, and inspect bottom end of sensor tubes. If
either sensor tube contains fluid, drain the appropriate tank completely (see Special Functions).
Remove BOTTOM END of hose and allow oil to drip out. DO NOT detach top end of hose from
sensor! When finished, make sure sensor tubes are pushed completely back into fittings.
• Wipe Down Exterior using a soft, damp cloth.
APPENDIX C - PARTS
• Do not replace worn parts individually. If parts become worn, only replace with
replacement parts specified by SUN.
• The use of any other accessories not specified in this manual may create a hazard.
• Read, understand and follow Safety Instructions in the front pages of this manual.
