    Default Trans fluid change

    So I just put in a new extension housing and changed the filter. Would it be a good idea to drain the TC and put in all fresh oil? When I dropped the pan the fluid wasnít burnt but it was a little dark and the bottom of pan had some sludge.

    May as well.

    make sure you don't over-torque the filter. I had problems with OD engagement on something and later info makes me think it was the filter bolt being too tight and causing the valve to stick.

    I donít think I tightened it much. Was using a baby ratchet and as soon as it felt tight I left it as is.

    Look up the torque value for the filter. Like Gadget said, it can cause problems. Allot of extra work just because of a simple thing.
