thank you

Thank you, helps alot but too much work for a vehicle I only need a few more month, maybe I'll just drop the pan to get out what I can, or just try to suck out what I can thru the fill hole, top it up with the right fluid, Dex2 and hope it reduces the slipping enough to make it more drivable... thanx again
