Topping Off

Just a heads up, I don't think you mentioned it, but the car must be running and in neutral or park when you top the fluid off the second time around (as per the service manual). You get more fluid in when it's running. It may not be a huge deal, but, generally speaking, you can't go wrong when following the service manual. (I just did the tranny service, sealing sleeve, and mechatronics seal adapter two weeks ago). If anyone is having troubles with rough shifting or a "bump" between gears, it is LIKELY the seal adapter which sits on top of the mechatronics and seals a port between the body of the tranny and mechatronics. My car runs like new now!

UPDATE: The rough shifting or "bump" was actually caused by a bad solenoid...I replaced them all and NOW my car runs like new!
