Look at it this way--you replace the filter and fluid at the same time--and then drain and refill a couple of times
afterwards--your going to bring more contaminates to the fresh filter that way--the filter and good fluid
is what the tranny wants--the way I'm doing it is the next best thing to flushing out all of the old fluid and starting with completly fresh fluid--and I'm trying to devise a way to do that very thing on my next change .
