122K. Did a fluid/filter change yesterday with Dex VI. The fill plug decided to create problems this time and did not want to break loose without a fight. I broke two 8 mm box end wrenches trying to use them with the T45 socket. Finally went to Grainger and $4 later came home with a L-shape T45 tool. Worked like a charm! Will do another change soon. Stay tuned.

Update: Did another drain and fill about 150 miles later. Monitored the ATF temperature with INPA. Without dropping the pan the work is done much faster.
