    Did you go back with an ac delco filter/gasket? I only ask because that's what I used the last time I did mine. Quality was top notch.

    You also might look into get a pan with a drain plug. A lot less mess. I was able to get one for mine of of amazon for around $45 with shipping and it holds two extra quarts, it's a 4L60e.

    Good job! :thumbs:

    Thanks Louis and no I went with the filter(Champion)we have at work and Autozone ATF.If it starts to act weird I guess I'll be doing this again.

    I'll look into that pan with the drain plug :thumbs:

    You shouldn't have a problem with it as long it meets the spec which I'm sure it dose. Before I used the ac delco I noticed the gasket that came with the other one would eventually crack. My trans has never shifted any different since the day I put it in. Regardless of what filter I used.

    The brand I bought was Dorman. Price has gone up a few dollars since I got mine. I also got the deep pan filter on the also pn 24208576.

    I saw that,thought that might be the one you bought.....no pic though.Dorman is good stuff and I wouldn't hesitate to order one,eventually. :thumbs: So,seeing as it holds two more quarts I'd have to assume it's a bit deeper,deep enough to drill a hole into it to put a temp gauge in?

    You could drill a hole in it but I'd put the probe where the drain plug goes. Less likely to leak. I was actually thinking about moving mine there, right now it's in the test port. Here pic of the pan installed on my truck.
