I HAVE A COUPLE OF OUNCES OF FLUID TOO MANY IN MY A4LD TRANSMISSION. AS YOU KNOW, THE A4LD HAS NO DRAIN PLUG. I HAVE TO DROP THE PAN. IS IT POSSIBLE TO, INSTEAD, EVACUATE 2 OR 3 OUNCES THROUGH THE TORQUE CONVERTER DRAIN PLUG?

Yes you can but a little excess does not matter.

Thank you, KHLow2008!

It's actually a good bit overfull. The level shows well above the top of the stamped area on the dipstick and it's shifting a little hard.

I recently replaced a leaking vaccuum modulator and I guess I wasn't quite careful enough down at the end of the top-off.

Thanks again!
