    Hey all.

    Was reading on what exact lubricant to use for my trans and I got everything figured out to do a fluid change around the entire car. I remember seeing a comment on one of the threads about a method to remove the reverse switch (or something) to fill up the trans a bit more. Apparently it was recommended by Shep or something along those lines. Anyone have exact details on this?

    I usually always fill my trans from the reverse sensor hole, I pop it out, remove the filler plug on the transmission and fill until I see it running out on the filler plug.

    I think he is referring to running more fluid than factory spec, but correct me if I'm wrong OP.
    FWIW: i also run factory spec with fluid levels.

    That is mostly what I was referring too but I guess factory spec is probably good enough for me.
