Here is a pic with few shots of ATF oil change (full flush) ~8q

The last 3 shots: has anybody seen the same ripped off insulation of the exhaust system, I sow it accidentally when I went underneath the car, I don’t know how that happened. Last 2 are just random pics (i had to fill up the space) from Superbowl Miami, i had the chance to be there :).

Everything went pretty smooth by following the HouRman's walkthrough:

You can see how the magnet looks like after 50k mls..., just be very careful and slow with pouring the oil trough the funnel because I made mess few times :)). and also the oil comes out on "parking" too no need to go on "drive" it fills up the bottles pretty fast so keep an eye, and just turn the engine off it stops immediately. I didn’t chose very expensive oil because im planning to change the oil more often in the future.

Good job. How's the shifting now? It's amazing how slowly you have to pour in the new fluid to prevent the dreaded "ATF back-up BURP". :shock:

Nice!

Your fluid looks darker than mine and your magnet actually doesn't look too bad.

I think everyone that refills their transmission with fluid through the dipstick knows you're supposed to do it slowly... However we all find out "how slow" the hard way. hehe

I actually thought the one represented the end zone, as in being finished, while the last one was a celebration pic!

Nothing wrong with the Pennzoil.
