The aftermarket drain pans with the drain plug makes draining the fluid easier.Hi,
" I purchased a $36 transmission oil pan with a plug (http://a.co/d/f3kcvzM), a $17 dipstick and chart to measure fluid levels (http://a.co/d/cAd6eQw), and a$16 infrared thermometer to get the transmission fluid temperature (http://a.co/d/8vvbnqK)."
Thanks for the links.
Is it necessary to replace the pan each time you change the trans fluid?
Just got quoted $250 by the dealer to change the trans oil and replace the filter.
Guessing I'm showing my age, but I can remember when you could get a transmission overhaul for $300
This video shows the factory way and the everybody else way for measuring the fluid level.
