Transmission Filter

My 1994 Land Yacht MH has a Tekonsha transmission cooler which as a screw on filter (#4016). Anyone know where these can be found or a good replacement?

Try NAPA, they may have to cross-reference it to their own brand.
I also found a post that shows another possible brand, and a few user tips:

In-Line Filters. I've had one for a year and due for a replacement and "surgery" next year. But my unit is made by Tekonsha (#4350A.) It is call "MagFilter" and goes in the A/T return line. In addition it has a very strong magnet ring inside, you stick a nail to the plastic cover and it will hold it. Should be replaced every 15K to 20K mi. and it's about $28Cdn. I've been running with this setup in -36F (-38C) no problems. It filters down to 30 microns. For more info call Tekonsha 800-325-5860 (for your local distributor) [Note: IPD now sells this filter for both A/T and P/S line applications; Wix sells the same unit under their label.] After I changed it I opened the used one. I found that the magnet inside was foul with metallic particles (it looked like grease, because the metal dust was mixed with ATF).
Return line: The top line is the return line. You can check it by connecting a hose to the end from radiator (disconnect the "+" wire on the ignition coil) and try to start the car, you'll see ATF coming out of the line on radiator end. [Another note:] Hurst now makes a filter unit that splices into the transmission fluid lines. It uses a Fram oil filter as the filtering element.


Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy, and taste good with ketchup.

transmission filter

I'm having the same difficulty you had, I called tekonsha, they say they dont sell anymore or support this product. Did you happen to find a suitable replacement filter. I have the metal screw-on filter also, cant see the part number on it but I'll bet it's 4016 like yours. I sure would like to buy the filter before i flush the transmission fluid.

Just to let everyone know, it's a NAPA 1324 or a wix 51324.

Was hunting for it for a customer of mine, and that's what I came up with.

I know this thread is old, but I hope the information does help.

If you're looking for filters, has good prices and an excellent cross reference capability; I've ordered from them before and was quite pleased.
