your not going to have any problems. hes assuming you have an auto. everyone for some reason assumes you have an auto just cause of the tranny fluid.

have one .. hence the reason on my original post stated there were metal flaked ON the drain plug ... but thanks for looking out :) i think it might be a stock item ... the threads are not magnetic , but the un threaded shaft area is :)
