    Its snowing here alot today and I just changed fluid on my E47 today from ATF to Meyers Blue.
    Afterwards I got the plow to move to the side once and up once but now it wont move anymore in any direction ... Pump is running.... so do I have some air in it somewhere??? how do I get it out???
    ...Seems I had this problem once before.... Appreciate a quick answer if possible I an pulling my hair out...

    it's not air. do the valves magnetize for all functions? does the motor run for all functions but down? if not you have a sticky valve.

    probably jarred some dirt or particles loose when you changed the oil. Might be something in the valve or valves

    I used ATF for alot of years and recently switched to an off brand Blue plow oil ( S.A.M. I think) and have not have it freeze up once yet. I should have done it years ago.
