My question is, does the 2.1qt all fit inbetween the drain and fill plug? In other words can i just open up the fill plus and fill it until its full and starts leaking it and then screwing it back on and *Walla* tranny is filled to 2.1q.
The reason i ask is because i think i migtnhave a small leak i and i want to have it full all the time and not have to jack up the car and keep redraining it. A friend had a leak on his integra so for like the last 2 years ive been refilling his tranny every so and so

Im not trying to be cheap but just in the mean time until i find a niceley price getrag or find a way to seal it

what is the easiest way to ensure you leave a few oz to ensure it gets the max fill?

I drain and flush every 50,000 miles with Lucus 75-90 Full Synthetic. It smells a lot better than gear oil and is a light blue in color. It's what the NASCAR boys use.

Well first off don't put ATF in your car unless you put in a higher stall torque converter lol. Sorry but nah you want gear oil not sure of the weight but Mobil 1 and royal purple are the same quality in my eyes. Meaning they are both such high quality you won't notice the difference between using one versus the other.
