Uh-oh. I drained/refilled mine with the front on stands. All 3 quarts went in. In
fact, I was thinking of putting more in because it didn't quite fill up to the fill plug
opening. Luckily, I only bought 3 quarts. Anyway, I've had no problems yet (did
it several thousand miles ago). Any particular seals I should be keeping my eye
Is it possible that all of the fluid won't drain out unless it's tilted? I can't imagine
that the small angle mine was tilted would allow _50%_ more fluid in than Ian's.
