Well I good evening just joined the group. I decided to do a drain and fill ony 2014 tradesman. Found the hard way, watch the hole video. I drained the fluid at 112 f. Got about 6 qts out of. Went to refill, waited till it came out the plug, but then it started gushing out. Apparently when the truck gets around 140 the bypass valves open and it will drain the tranny cooler. So needless to say I ended up filling my pan and getting a nice oil slick on my driveway. And burned my hand trying to get the plug back on. Will more than likely have to add in the morning. When it has cooled down.

Curious what fluid did you mix back in? I have some champion global synthetic atf leftover and it's enough to do a pan service if it's only ~6qts

"Lifetime"

typical.

Though it does call for the fluid level to be checked at 40k intervals I think?

Do you have a link for a good video for this. It's on my to do list. Thanks
