I post to try and help others each day. My performance build and other items are no less of learning experiences for all.
Ed..you'll need to enroll in AA if you keep drinking for all my issues.
Trans pan is back on, no fluid in the trans. Will be vacuuming the car out and wash it before the tow truck shows up tomorrow. We'll pull the trans dry, it dripped all night.
The fluid that looked good at 10pm in a parking lot and didn't look overly bad once home, became darker red and full of sparkles when in the drain pan.
Will know more tomorrow/Tuesday.
