Okay so we changed the fluid tonight.. is there a way to tell if the pan is new by the stickers on it? It looks brand new, but who can tell? The drain plug was not tightening, it would strip like if you overtighten a soda cap and it jumps.. it's not leaking, but I am hoping I can just buy a new plug. Anyway, we got a little under 4 qts in it without dropping the pan. That is just drain plug.. I was going to do it twice but after the plug going back on I decided to wait until tomorrow and see if I can get a new drain plug. The pan has either been replaced or surely taken off before because there is a little silicone on the back pass. side corner bolt, but the fluid looked cooked. Not sure if you guys remember me talking about a noise I hear when the car is in gear at a stop, it's like a whirling noise from the TC. Well after about 2 miles it started getting much quieter.. We will see how it goes tomorrow after the next swap..
