Why I hate transmissions today...
So last night I was doing my complete system fluid replacement as I have finally hit the 25K mark on the odometer and I am the uber-maintenance freak like Rich (wynthrop). I repolaced my tranny filter and immeadiatley had a air leak noise coming from the pan. Lesson learned DO NOT BUY ANYTHING OTHER THAN MOTORCRAFT FOR TRANNY FILTER. I will be replacing the other one again tonight when I drive back out to my buddies to use the lift. So no I am out for the **** new filter, the 10 or more quarts of fluid so far, plus the 30$ for the new tranny filter and 18$for the new gasket plus the additional fluid I will have to readd again. SONOFABATCH this has me a little upset. I am now out 40$ in fluid, I dont remember the cost of the other filter plus the new filter and gasket. That is one spending tranny service for a do-it-yourself. Plus I still have to pay my buddy for renting his shop again tonight. :(
Hopefully tonight goes better. I am in such a poor mood today.
