I am fortunate that I can get to the Auto Hobby Shop on base and access to their tools, lifts and parts cleaner. It came in handy

The old filter and whatever the name is for that little piece that I bent all to he*** trying to get out. It was a PITA

The oil change is nothing. But because I had a Fr** in the car before today, I thought I would prove that I learned from my mistakes

I changed my trans filter two weeks ago, then i had it flushed last weekend. I am doing an oil change Friday at work on the hoist, then she is good to go!
Fluid looks good that came out of your car!

The fluid and filter get changed round 30K. I am a little OCD just for the fact that I depend on my baby a lot. Thats why the oil that was in there still had a nice color to it when it came out.

Thanks for the compliments
