    Was this the debut of Mrs. O?

    My matrix has 274k. Bought it at 143k haven't changed the transmission fluid. I'm paranoid that if I do it will start slipping. Should I do this refill or not?

    Geez i forgot the clip really tho

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Caleb Dotson says:

    I'm confused do you need to buy a new strainer or just clean the used one and put it back on then add a new gasket?

    How do you have a 10mm?!?!? Magician!

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars William Henderson says:

    I want to say thank you for the video. I just changed the transmission filter on my 2007 Toyota Matrix, 100K miles, and your advice came in real handy, (left two nuts in the front and back and used Permatex on the pan to hold the gasket). Thanks so much from New Albany, IN!

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mk L says:

    The gasket spray is unnecessary in most applications. With a few bolts through the holes, the pan goes on fine with the gasket lined up. I don't envy the next person who has to scrape that old one off.

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Red Toberts says:

    Great advice.

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jonathan Bolagner says:

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Philip Carlile says:

    Is it okay to use synthetic fluid when replacing the fluid?

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jonathan K says:

    Is that a new strainer or did you just clean it?

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars bull_squad says:

    Why would you replace the gasket unless its leaking if its not broke don't fix it…

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Glycerin says:

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars dano2478 says:

    What if you don't have a dip stick? I have a 2010 Chevy and no dip stick. I bought the car used. Don't know when or if this service was ever done. Any suggestions?

  47. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars kryptoboi says:

    Shouldn’t you start bolts by hand to prevent crossthreading instead of drilling it on?
