If you want a drain in your trans pan, go to an auto parts store or look one up online , I picked one up before I started the project. Once you drop the pan and clean it ,you simply drill a 1/2 " hole where you want it and install the adapter. Took 10 minutes to install. Mine started to [email protected] I dropped the pan changed filter added drain and replaced fluid with Mobil1 "blue label" I got at the dealer -Best Price-. It fixed the problem. I ran it about a week and drained and refilled to get more of old fluid out. Works great.

New fluid on the left, old on the right. Not really burnt smelling, just dark. Bottom picture is the metal gunk I wiped off the magnet. Also found a few shards in the pan while draining the last of the fluid out too.

Ya, it is great to suck the fluid out first before removing the pan to avoid what I call the "Red Sea Scenario" We don't want that :LOL:

It really is nice if one can do this work themselves. Quite cathartic to replace the old fluid with new with your own hands. Same thing with oil. I guess I am wired a little funny that way. :)
