Ok there is a product made by lubeguard made to flush out transmission lines. It comes in a pressurized can and has an adapter on the hose that screws into most trans lines. This a product I used when I worked at ford. There is nothing that's works as good as it does. It is available at oreilly's , it costs about 15 dollars and the part# is

he has good water flow through the radiator, comes out as fast as it goes 
in, good flow from the res to the water pump. could be wrong , but think the 
radiator is pretty clear. he has a tow package on the trans, we changed the 
fluid and filter last summer, fluid was burnt and had a small amount of 
shavings present in bottom of pan, but didn't blow out any of the lines, or 
do anything with the transaxle ( 4 wheel drive ) .

question for the real mechanichs , can i use air to blow out the 
transmission lines ? if so how high should i set the regulator ?

list so far, of possible causes not already checked.
1: exhaust leak blowing hot air on engine - probability low ( for several 
reasons, but want to check anyway )
2: trasmission lines clogged - probability med high
3:radiator portion of trans cooling system clogged-probability med high
4:trans tow package radiator clogged - probability med high

note: reason for rating trans higher,include populace suggestions, as well 
as the previous condition of trans fluid / filter, and trans is having 
occasional down shift issues.
if none of the above items is cause , could it be the transaxle ?

Be Safe , Be Happy, Have Fun
