    Ok, first thing out. You NEVER do a 100% fluid change on ANY transmission EVER. The clutches cant stand the drastic fluid change all at once. You must do a 40% change at first. If problem persists, remove another 5% thereafter. This will allow the clutches to get use to the new fluid viscosity.
