Transmission Fluid Change and Adjust?

Going to flush the tranny and am wondering if there are any band adjustments to do inside the transmission while I have the pan off.

There's no need to drop the pan, there's a drain plug.

True, but it's the only way to replace the filter and check for wear metals.

Drop the pan. And do about a 21qt flush. Just draining and filling is NOT a flush. No where near.

Yep, got about 20 quarts to replace with. Changing filters. I just wondered if there are any adjustments to madge while the pan is off.

Nope. Nothing to adjust. You could always put a new valve body in while you're there.
