Look around on the forum, maybe theirs someone in your area to help ya out..Might help by just doing adaptation reset.

btw.... I did use OEM ATF but did not change my AT pan/filter last time.
You really cant drain all the fluid out an automatic trans..(Torque converter, valve body,pump...all hold fluid) Mixing old n new fluid is going to happen regardless..Same thing as an oil never get it all out..
