BTW - the torque converter really can not be drained.

You will get a little more out when dropping the pan - assuming you remove the filter.

Agreed Mark. However unless there's a problem I have no idea why anyone would drop the pan unless their bored and need something not important to do.

Tyler must have been bored! I have only drained mine via the drain plug. It was very convenient to have it!

I wish I had no reason to drop the pan on this 100 degree day.

I had a really bad leak from the pan gasket. I think I accidently over filled the transmission, and caused that seal to start leaking.

I don't understand how overfilling the transmission would cause the pan to leak. Contrary to popular opinion, overfilling does not raise the pressure inside the transmission.

Agreed, It should blown out the fill tube or O ring on the fill tube. I should have used the term expanded rather than blow.

It very well could have been leaking from the fill tube. Since that the side it was coming from.

But on the other side i had a small drip coming from a bolt.

Anyways, I put the new filter in and the new gasket and the old one was suck a pos gasket compared to the new one.

The leak is all set. But I'm really starting to get hard hard shifts. I think my tranny is starting to go bad.

What type of fluid did you use. Use only Mercon SP or LV. Do you have a tuner? They can also be bad for the TorqueShift tranny.
