Finished Tranny Fluid Change

Finished it up this morning. I was able to get 10qts of fluid changed. Installed a new pan gasket, internal filter, external filter, and cleaned the magnet.

good job. 30k intervals are worth it for a little piece of mind. 8-10qts is the norm

I've never removed my pan....always just pulled the plug and replaced the toilet paper filter. So your pics are quite an eye opener. All those electrical connections and such. WOW! It's not like the old time automatics I'm used to!

I was shocked too, when I opened it up.

I would definately recommend dropping the pan to clean the magnet.

Yup. When I did mine I upgraded my magnet to a bigger size.

How do you remove the toilet paper filter. I was told the only way is to use an impact gun. Anyone else have a secret they use and would like to share.

This was your first oil change ?

I pulled my at 3,000 and had twice as much gunk in the pan.

At 35,000 did my next service and the pan looked like your picture.

The gasket is reusable but worth having one on hand.

I am thinking of adding on one of the external after market filters.

This is where get them from. Even having them shipped it Canada, it's still cheaper.
