So...just did my transmission fluid drain and fill this morning.
Overall success, though something peculiar happened. I measured it when the blue light went off. Maybe slightly warmer as I took it for a spin around the block. Let it cool down a few minutes. Slightly low, not too low though.
Put it up on the ramps. Drained 3 1/2 qts as measured by my catch pan with measurements. I did also capture a little bit to send for analysis.
So...I proceed to put 3 1/2 qts in of the new fluid. When I go to put the old fluid in the now empty bottles, suddenly I only have enough old fluid to fill 3 at which point I say where did the other half quart go.
Perhaps I added too much now...I don't know. But everything is running fine and I have put 100 miles on today since performing the work.
I measured and filled from the top with airbox removed. Was easy.
As I plan to do this procedure again in a couple weeks, perhaps I will just check it cold? I don't know. 3 1/2 drained out but I only filled up 3 qts with the old fluid. (scratch)
You were able to start it up and measure with the airbox removed?
