BTW, I always thought there was a way to hook up an auto tranny to a device that would circulate the oil so that a thorough oil change could be done. Might want to ask around about that.
Apparently not on this transmission. From what I understand, the torque converter retains a substantial portion of the fluid and it doesn't circulate to the rest unless actually in use. Both the fill and drain ports are in the other part of the box, so even if you hooked up a pump, there would be no reason for the fluid to flow through the torque converter.
