I WOULD CHECK OIL LEVEL TO SEE IF OK THEN LET WHOM EVER FIXES TRANS. DO THE OIL CHANGE. WITHOUT PROPER TOOLS, DRAIN PAN ECT. JUST A MESSY JOB. THEN YOU HAVE TO DISPOSE OF OLD OIL. AND I AM SURE YOU CAN DO IT, IT JUST AIN'T WORTH THE TIME AND EFFORT. -

WAY TO GO!! THE OIL FILTER MUST HAVE NOT BEEN TO TIGHT AS MOST OF THE TIME YOU NEED A WRENCH FOR THAT AS WELL. -

READ INSTRUCTIONS ON OIL FILTER BOX FOR INSTALL. DON'T NEED WRENCH TO TIGHTEN!!! HAND TIGHTEN PER FILTER BOX INSTRUCT. -

thanks, i am almost 68 yr old and very slow so i wont have time for that. wish i had learned more about repairs when i was young. used to have money so in buying the drinks etc i had guys that wouldn't let me do the work. so now i am an old guy trying to learn. (lol) i own every tool i could need to do repairs because i always bought the tools my friends need to repair so now i am learning what they are and how to use them. again you can get a laugh from this but it is true. THANKS AGAIN! -
