Well I did the first Trans Oil & Filter Change on the Park Avenue on
The reusable oil pan gasket came off in one piece and was reused. So far
Bottom of the pan was clean. Just a little of the greyish goo around the
magnet was present.
A tupperware storage container was used as a drain pan. I hope I can
find a slightly larger pan to drain oil into, this one is just barely
bigger than the trans pan.
I siphoned out 5 - 7 quarts of oil through the dipstick tube at the end
of April, refilled with fresh oil, then did it again about two weeks
ago. My uncle used this method on his car too.
I didn't check them closely but I think the oil pan bolts are aluminum.
Happy Memorial Day Weekend
