Did you save any of the black slime?wilks3 said:Now, how do I "tactfully" inform the selling dealer(where I bought it) that trans was 30oz low??? Did it hurt the transmission internals???
FYI... Menards selling Valvoline Dex VI trans fluid @$4.49 a quart.....wilks3 said:Did 2nd drain & refill, still dark but no where as black as it was. Took a gallon milk jug, cut top off and made big open mouth. Filled with 2qts water, marked where water level was. I am going to start draining 2qts out every other oil change and refill. Not hard to do or cost that much either. Going to do this until fluid comes out looking like new all the time. Just me and sure as heck can't hurt it. :cheers:
With the engine idling in park.JayTee2014 said:You should drive the vehicle and get the transmission fluid hot again after filling.
Then, check the level at the fluid level bolt port with the vehicle on a perfectly level surface and see if any comes out. The level should be just at or slightly below the port opening with the bolt removed from the level port.
Just did my 4th Transmission drain/refill.
Very easy on this transmission.
