A transmission hydraulic system can hold a lot of fluid, say 13 quarts for your transmission. If you drain and fill the transmission fluid (Fluid Change), it may replace 6 or 7 quarts, therefore leaving 5 or 6 quarts of old/dirty fluid. Flushing the transmission removes all 13 quarts of dirty fluid and replaces it. I like the flush because it removes all the fluid. I don't suggest any additives, and neither does most of the vehicle/ transmission manufacturers.

The intake manifold gasket can develop external engine oil leaks. The intake manifold will need to be removed and the gaskets replaced to correct this issue.
