Was going to replace it myself. There are two plugs on the drivers side a 8mm and 10mm, thought I had my 8mm Allen socket on but had 10mm. I put the fluid in through the 10mm port. Knowing the 8mm port was to refill the transmission. Where did the fluid go and should I just take it in and have all fluids changed.
Do you
have the same problem?

Hi and thanks for using 2CarPros.

I have a feeling you put it into the front differential. Take a look at the attached picture and let me know which plug you filled.

The 10mm port I put the fluid in is on the same side upper left as the 8mm port as the diagram shows for the fill and level check point. The plug is located where transmission bolts up at torque converter.

Thanks

Can you identify it in this picture? Also, is it possible for you to upload a picture of it for me to see?
