One other issue i had was that the space for the fill plug was pretty tight that it took me a while to screw it back in while the car was running and fluid dripping out. Im hoping the tranny isn't underfilled but i did manage to use up 6 qts of the D6 fluid so i'm not too concerned. Is there a better way to get the fill plug on in a timely fashion when the tranny is still at operating temp? I didn't have an IR Thermometer so i'm not sure what temperate the tranny was when i closed the fill plug. It seems by the time i was able to actually tighten the screw the temperature may have already risen past the recommended level
