I hear ya, guys. I am curious as to how you checked the temp though. Did you use a thermometer?

What I am really asking about is if you guys heard a change in the sound of your car, at idle, when you changed the ATF. I am pretty sure I did everything correctly. I didn't have a thermometer though. The pan was warm to the touch, but not hot.
