dropping the pan, changing the filter and cleaning the magnet seems fairly easy. ill give that a try first and see what happens

the car has 102,xxx miles on it and nothing with the transmission has crossed my mind to even touch it. (thats bad i know :/) ill give the filter and and everything a try and see what happens. if that doesnt work ill try draining it from the line and see how that works. if worse comes to worse ill take it to a mechanic.

Don't know if I'm reading incorrectly or what,,,

Didn't you just drop the pan a few days ago?
Why wouldn't you of done the filter then? It's right there, as if the magnet.

I know people like to try and save money. But I really feel that this should be left to a pro.
Don't "think outside the box".
There is no box.
Do it correct, or do it twice.
