Thats why I'm afraid of changing my transmission fluid... I can't afford a leak if I have to go to school.

your car should be better, my yukon was very neglected by its previous owners so ive had to do the brake lines and fuel it was only a matter of time before i would have had to change them anyway.

plus just droping the trans pan is not a big deal, just be ready for a mess

Dropping the pan is a snap, just messy. Take the bolts off one corner and get the pan to tip that way, helps keep the mess down.

Pulled out of my driveway, hammered the right foot down until Libya and Iraq started to cheer.

Almost finished the hood for my truck, cut the holes in the top of my new dash for defrost vents and vin. numbers, made the front part of the dash, and figured out how to ruin a headlight switch on my truck.

Check tire pressure today. Front Drivers side tire had 35psi, all the others were 32. Thought that was a bit odd... But I took some air out of the 35 tire.
