Re: AT Trans Fluid - Too much of a Good thing

The only harm I could see is if you aren't removing the parts in a clean
environment. If you do it in your driveway, make sure it's not windy,
leaves and other junk can blow in to the case and stick to the oil

The other thing is is not to abuse the threads. Remember, they are
aluminum and can *easily* be pulled. I've done it. Thankfully, it was
still threadble. Same holds for the pump/pickup assembly. 

This might be open for debate, but if there is constantly changed, new
fluid in the trans, is might remove oil residues (benefical and
non-beneficial). It's likely, but also when you simply put new fluid in
because of it's detergents. I'll put no weight on this and expect another
torsen-like thread to erupt.

Too much of a good thing? Probably not.
