    Nice write up Nick. How in the hell did you get the drain plug out? I did this to my '99, but the drain plug wouldn't budge. :dunno:

    I had removed a long time ago and had to use the Craftsman bolt extractor set to get it out. Mine rounded off and the bolt extractor worked great at removing the now bad drain plug.

    That's a bit of an understatement. Mine looked like something had been chewing on it. I should probably do this to my new one. It needs to get a hell of a lot warmer for me to even think about crawling under there. :lol:

    I was lucky since it was in the garage and it got up to 58 that day. My right hand is still cut up some from getting at those dang torx bolts. :fume:

    You may have said this already but how often do you suggest changing it?

    I suggest that it get changed at 50k miles. I was lazy and as you can tell didn't get to it then. But from what I have seen it could have gone to 100k with no problems. If you buy your vehicle new and get a chance to change the fluid out at 10k to get the breakin floaty's out I don't see why you can't go to 50k on the filter change. Also go by the owners manual. Every vehicle is different to a point. Heck some don't have a filter like our 08 GMC Acadia.

    did you use any RTV sealant or anything on the gasket, or just lay the gasket on the top edge of the pan and then just bolt it up? :dunno:

    I used a small amount of weather strip adhesive to hold the gasket in place but other than that it was just the gasket and then put it all back together.
