Abscate, that photo must be in Australia rather than Manhattan as it appears to be down under.

Quick check, which direction does the water in the toilet bowl go when you flush?

Should that be down or up? I'm a bit torn about what is preferable where :lol:

Congrats on your load-in Steve. Next stop; a holodeck (from Star Trek DS9).
In the garment district, are you? ...F.I.T. perhaps?

FIT it is. Right at the main arches. Just finished the panel discussion and on the train home to make Dad's memorial arrangements.

Feels like my second to first hard downshift is getting worse, not better, after three drain and fills. Any ideas short of a solenoid or valve body replacement? I'm only about 150 miles into the new fluid.

Did my oil change a week ago and received results from an oil analysis. Everything looks good at 125k

To E_Showell: Short of parts replacement I respectfully suggest......
Running the fluid 'til it's warm consistently outside.
If it stays clean get a 10 oz. LubeGard (red bottle) and dose your transmission.
That's 1 oz. per system quart.
